Mother’s Day Meal for Mom
Add a little originality to Mother’s Day by trying your hand at something homemade. Even if concocting something special in the kitchen isn’t exactly your style, we’ve got a few recipes on hand to make the process go smoothly.
Designed with novice cooks in mind, these recipes are sure to satisfy mom on her signature day and keep things simple for dad with a few easy-to-follow steps. The best part? There’s plenty to do to accommodate a few extra hands from little helpers.
The centerpiece is a marinated steak, easily flavored with soy sauce, Worcestershire and ground mustard, and forgotten about overnight as it marinates.
Our green bean, tomato and Vidalia onion salad with Dijon vinaigrette dressing adds a delicious spin to the requisite veggie portion.
Since mom’s only chore for the day is relaxing, help ease her into the job with a little comfort food. Twice-baked potatoes should do the trick. This take on the loaded potato combines all the classics – sour cream, cheese, scallions and butter – into the mix, so it’s ready and loaded when it comes out of the oven.
To satisfy a sweet tooth, finish the meal with a blueberry dump cake. This deceptively simple dessert requires little preparation and delivers big flavor.
So there you have it – a simple and satisfying meal tailor-made just for mom.
