On Mother’s Day we celebrate that special woman (or women) in our lives. And at Sunday Supper, that means we mark the day with food. Our tastemakers have developed creative culinary ways to honor Mom, toasting her with fruity drinks and tempting her with luscious desserts.
And there’s no shortage of appetizers and main dish offerings to make Mom feel like a queen. (Promise you’ll take a long walk with her before dinner.)
You can bet tonight’s weekly Twitter chat will be full of praise for Mom and what she taught us (or maybe didn’t) about cooking. Bring a tissue because when we talk about the wonderful things she’s done for us, we often get teary. The chat will be hosted by Camilla Man of Culinary_Cam.
There’s still time to throw together a memorable pancake breakfast, especially if you get creative with the toppings. Here are five ways to give everyday pancakes a special finish.
1. Nutella and Whipped Cream. Spread the chocolate-hazelnut topping on warm pancakes and garnish with freshly whipped cream. Sprinkle with chopped toasted nuts.
2. Sweet and Salty. Lay two pieces of crisp bacon across pancakes and drizzle with real maple syrup.
3. Fruit and Honey. Add lemon zest to a bowl of sliced strawberries and top pancakes with the mixture. Rather than syrup, sweeten with streams of honey. (Or as an alternative to honey, mix sour cream with brown sugar and spoon over strawberries.)
4. Cherries, Chocolate and Cream. Mix canned cherry pie filling with dark chocolate chips. Dollop onto pancakes and top with whipped cream.
5. Granola and Yogurt. Spread vanilla Greek yogurt on pancakes and top with nutty granola.
After breakfast, take a look at this week’s recipes. We know you’ll find something delicious to make for Mom.
