Mother’s Day {Gifts from the Kitchen}

Mother’s day is right around the corner and whether you are celebrating with breakfast in bed or heading to your favorite spot for brunch, the day usually revolves around food.  Grocery stores advertise their sales on steaks and lobster tails and restaurants have special menus for their Mother’s day brunch. I think if you ask most mothers what they would prefer, most would say something homemade with love. So here are some {gifts} from the kitchen to share with your mom or yourself. Then go get yourself pampered at your favorite spa, or take a hot bubble bath with a glass of wine because you deserve it!

Pancakes are always a favorite for breakfast but you can put a twist on the classic by making these oven baked Dutch-babies.
