Can you believe April is almost gone? That means… Mother’s day is just around the corner! We have plenty of ideas on this month’s Blog Love from our favorite sites:

  • A colorful Asparagus & Arugula Salad with a Poached Egg by Once Upon a Cutting Board.
  • Or maybe you want to go with something sweeter with a Strawberry Cucumber Salad by Oh Sweet Basil.
  • If you want to get ahead with mother’s day bunch, a safe bet is to make this Overnight French Toast Bake by Damn Delicious.
  • Feeling on the fancy side? Try this recipe of Hash Brown Egg Nests with Avocado by The Cooking Jar.
  • And maybe for an easy brunch dessert, these Blackberry Banana Brunch Skewers by Bright Bold & Beautiful.
  • Fancy drinks on us! How about this Champagne Punch Bellini by Crazy for Crust.
  • And last, but not least, put everything together beautifully with this Pink & Polka Dot Brunch Styled Table by Best Friends for Frosting.

Plenty of ideas to choose from, and we are only getting started! Not too early to think about Mother’s Day. This year, in Guatemala we also celebrate it on Sunday! Perfect day for brunch!

Mother’s Day Freebies: Cupcake Toppers

We couldn’t have Mother’s Day without a freebie. You can use them as Cupcake Toppers or as Labels to tie around your seasoned salts. Print on cardstock paper and cut around each circle. If you are using them as Cupcake Toppers, use tape or 1” inch clear stickers to secure toothpicks or lollipop sticks behind them.

Make sure to print at 100% (no scaling) or it will make smaller designs. Feel free to share them and post back your pictures to Facebook so we can see how your Mother’s Day creations look!

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Seasoning Salts and Vanilla Sugar

Every year, we try to post ideas for Mother’s Day – usually around the meal for that day. This year, we wanted to give you ideas for a Gift: Seasoning Salts and Vanilla Sugar! This year, we’ve been talking with my mom about what to gift and have it be budget friendly.

A few months ago, we were having a foodies meeting (and running some errands) with Helga, and we found these nice containers for just over a dollar at Cemaco – they were so cute I got a couple! Fast forward and I went back to Cemaco to see if they still had the same containers for this year’s mother’s gifts. Turns out they had a few left (7), with black and white lids. That was useful so I would know which salt was what.

Since I was making also Vanilla Sugar, I already saved two other glass jars with white lids and one with a golden one. Those were from Jams and Sauces so, after boiling them and removing the labels they looked as new! Overall, I got the 10 containers under $10. The salt and sugar was about $3 and I spent around $15 on spices. I went to get the spices and vanilla pods at Superb. They have a wide selection and sell them just like Penzeys does in the US. Walking into the store is so much fun! You don’t know where to go and what to grab first. Superb is also the place where I got all the ingredients for the Best Granola Recipe I shared with you back in January. All around, the total money spent on 10 Mother’s Day Gifts is under $30. A bargain if you ask me!

As we want to honor all the moms in our lives, what’s better than give them a little something that they can use on those days where you just have time for a quick meal? Moms, we got you covered!
