With Mother’s Day around the corner you are probably thinking about what kinds of things to buy or send to your mother and your mother-like friends and family. I love to spend the day in the garden working and planting as a family. We then have a family barbeque.
Here are a few ideas for you if you are still considering your options – they include buying and making – or rather – baking home made gifts!

Since I have so many food allergies, and I want fresh, healthy food, I prefer to eat at home. Buying a cake and ice cream does not work either. So for this Mother’s Day we will have a barbeque and fresh, grilled veggies. For dessert we will make one or several treats:
1) A cake using a tub of the Sugar Cookie Dough which we will roll out into a cake pan and bake. We will top it with fruit, berries and sorbet for me, and ice cream for the rest of my family.
2) Raspberry filled sugar cookies. Check out my recipes in my blog – we will roll out the Sugar Cookie Dough and cut out and bake cookies, and then fill them with raspberry jam and/or dark chocolate.
3) We might make chocolate chip bars (like brownies) using the Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and/or brownies using the Brownie Cookie Dough. We will top them with sorbet for me, and/or ice cream and whipped cream for the rest of my family.
SInce it is Mother’s Day we will make these goodies together as a family. You can also create and bake your favorite cookies or brownies with our cookie dough!
