Every year it’s a struggle to know what to get Mom for Mother’s Day, am I right?? Here are 5 food gifts Mom will love!

Sour Cream Banana Bread

Nothing says I love you like something homemade, and each of these gifts are a bit of homemade love. You can give the gift on a disposable plate, wrap it in a piece of parchment (above), a cello bag or pick up a container as part of the gift! Here are 5 ideas for you…

Fresh Strawberry Bread with Lemon Glaze

Strawberry Bread

This bread is beautiful and so easy to make. The fresh strawberries in this quick bread set it apart from other recipes, and the lemon glaze is the perfect topping drizzled to make this recipe worthy of gift giving!

And what mom doesn’t love banana bread? I promise she will love this recipe, wrapped in Parchment and tied with simple string. If you want to give her a beautiful loaf pan, this one is heavy duty and definitely a splurge kitchen item your mom does not already have!

Charcuterie Board for Mom How to make

Charcuterie Board for Mom

Is cooking not your thing? I have the solution for you. This is the ultimate make and take gift! Pick a fun cutting board of any type, and then load with with fresh fruit, veggies, meat and cheese before delivering to mom. This post will guide you thru how to assemble and what to purchase.

I love to pick up my favorite items for charcuterie boards at Trader Joe’s for one-stop shopping. Any shape or size of board will work: round to rectangle, big or small you can go big or keep it under $15.

Homemade Granola Mother's Day gift

Homemade Granola

If your mom loves granola, homemade is such a special treat! Find a fun container such as a glass jar, an artisan jar, anything with a tight fitting lid and you are good to go. Make the granola, let cool and place in container for easy gift giving. A wood spoon tied with a ribbon or twine to the outside of the jar is a nice touch! All of our granola recipes linked here.

Mom's favorite Carrot, Zucchini and Apple Muffins

Carrot and Apple Muffins

Is your mom a muffin fan? This muffin tastes like carrot cake in a muffin! Made with Zucchi, Carrot and Fresh apples, it’s perfect for making and giving to mom in a muffin tin. This one from USA Bakewear is my favorite! If your mom isn’t into carrot muffins, there are oodles of muffin recipes to choose from on ABK!

Take mom a meal in a 9×13. ABK’s Chicken Pot Pie is on everyone’s favorite list. This meal is filled with homemade goodness. You can take it baked and ready to eat with a salad or bake it at Mom’s once you arrive. This dish can be made in a ceramic dish or even a simple glass 9×13 dish.
