Stumped on how to treat mom for Mother’s Day? We’ve got seven delicious dishes you can make the special mother in your life!

Pancake Cake

Get ready to wow mom with a cake that tastes and looks like a stack of pancakes, with a maple frosting and a bacon garnish! And the best part is, you just use boxed pancake mix as a base!

French Toast Cupcakes

These cupcakes are like little french toast bread puddings! Top with whipped cream and berries, and you can tell mom it’s extra nutritious.

Chocolate Pots de Crème

This sophisticated dessert (which features a kick — a shot of whiskey) is not as difficult to make as it looks!

Curtis Stone’s Crêpes with Homemade Ricotta and Maple-Strawberry Syrup

Curtis Stone’s crepes are a light addition to the menu that deliver big on flavor. And the elegant presentation will look perfect on mom’s breakfast platter.

Chicken Paillard with Prosciutto, Melon and Mint Salad

This figure-friendly dish will help balance out all the goodies you give mom on Mother’s Day. And it’s the perfect lunch or dinner item for spring — light and bright.

Garlic and Lemon Spaghetti

Rach’s garlic and lemon spaghetti is another delicious dish mom will love. And it’s not particularly complicated to make, so the whole family can get involved in the preparation.

Pizza Masters’ Vodka Pizza

Why not treat mom with a homemade pizza? Everyone loves pizza and the kids will have a blast rolling out the dough.
