Mother’s Day is May 11th (less than 2 weeks away) and like most, we celebrate it with food. As a youngster, it was always a treat for me to be able to serve my mom breakfast in bed. I was more nervous about the possibility of dropping the tray more so than if the food was edible! I would serve the usual Mother’s Day food items such as instant coffee, orange juice, toast, scrambled egg (any other type of egg would have had disastrous results) napkin and of course, a flower. It would arrive cold, I might add, and mom would happily eat it as if a chef had prepared it. As I got older, the menu would get a bit more sophisticated (read not having to be supervised) and also I would have been sharing the routine with my younger siblings. I thought I’d share with you these top 5 Mother’s Day recipes to honor mothers around the globe.
