While you could take mom to a fancy restaurant preparing a homemade Mother's Day lunch is a great way to express your gratitude. You'll wow her with elegant drinks and gourmet dishes like crepes, homemade pasta and made-from-scratch desserts that will make her heart melt. Here's what you'll need for the ultimate Mother's Day lunch:
We bet mom would appreciate a nice big pitcher of red sangria...
or a non-alcoholic punch made with citrus, berries and passion fruit juice.
These savory crepes filled with ricotta and herbs are a nice Mother's Day lunch idea...
and would pair nicely with this colorful Parmesan-arugula salad dressed in extra virgin olive oil.
Mom might also enjoy a refreshing cold cucumber soup with pumpkin seeds and red pepper.
If Mama Dukes is a pasta lover, why not treat her to homemade cheese ravioli?
Or you can prepare this exquisite vegetarian risotto made with wild mushrooms.
This five-ingredient Cantonese-style steamed salmon is another great dining option.
Sweeten your special Mother's Day lunch with treats like this mile-high strawberry shortcake...
or this scrumptious blueberry crumble cake laced with lemon and almonds.
These zesty lemon bars prepared with saffron would also be a hit with mom.
If she's a chocoholic then these explosive Black Forest chocolate cupcakes are a must.
