Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If you want to join in on the celebration of mums and motherhood, this is a perfect time to go the extra mile to make your mum feel special.
We all know the expression “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” but I think it would be more accurate to say that everyone loves to be pampered with a delicious home cooked meal, so what better way to show your mother how much you love them than by cooking a special meal from scratch? If you’re in need of some inspiration, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered – from breakfast to dessert – with some amazing recipes that are perfect for vegan and non-vegan mothers alike.
Make your mum feel like one in a million with a home cooked breakfast or brunch for them to wake up to.
