Motherâ€™s Day Inspiration
Motherâ€™s Day is right around the corner so we have some great, last-minute gift ideas to share with you! Something Thoughtful A thoughtful Motherâ€™s Day gift can pull the heartstrings of any mom out there. A good example is a jar filled with compliments, memories, etc. The idea is simple. You buy a large jar that can hold a good number of small folded up pieces of paper. After filling the jar with your personalized notes, tell your mom to open it up and read one on days sheâ€™s feeling down or just wants something to make her smile. It makes the perfect, heartfelt gift that all momâ€™s would love. It also happens to be fairly inexpensive so itâ€™s perfect if youâ€™re on a budget or have multiple mothers in your life. Something HomemadeÂ Everyone loves a nice meal out, but we all know restaurants tend to get super packed on holidays such as this one. A simple and delicious recipe is a fun way to surprise Mom with. Â Kick off Motherâ€™s Day with some French toast! Perfect French Toast Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cups half-and-half or milk, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon sugar and a pinch of salt in a shallow bowl. Heat 1/2 tablespoon butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, dip 6 thick slices white bread, challah or brioche in the egg mixture and cook in the skillet until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side, adding more butter as needed. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake until puffed, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt 4 tablespoons butter in the same skillet until browned, about 5 minutes. Drizzle the French toast with the browned butter and maple syrup. No matter what you decide to do for mom this year, it will be memories sheâ€™ll cherish forever.
