40 Mother's Day recipes sure to WOW her! Learn more at sensualappealblog.com

I have the best Mom in the world. It’s true. And yes, my opinion is subjective. I’m sure you think the same of your mom too. Or your grandma. Or your aunt. Or whoever it is that you call “Mom.” Whoever that person may be, I believe one of the best ways of expressing our love is through a delicious recipe. Recipes that ALL include an important ingredient: LOVE.

Whether you prefer to make brunch or dessert for your mom – I collected recipes from around the Web that are sure to satisfy and wow your darling Mother. But remember, food isn’t enough – be sure to actually tell her you love her too and give her a nice big hug. She’s done so much for you already! It’s her day! Happy (early) Mother’s Day!

    So am I allowed to make these recipes for myself to celebrate Mother’s Day, despite the fact that I am not a mother and won’t be with my mother for Mother’s Day? I can just make them and pretend I’m sharing with my mom, right? Haha. Sooo many good things here!

    p.s. if I remember correctly, I think once upon a time you mentioned that you were moving to Lakeview in May? Feel free to shoot me an e-mail or whatever if you want to grab coffee or hang out sometime!
