38 Recipes Your Mom Will Love

Purple Iris Flower by @SpicieFoodie

Growing up my mother (or mami as we call her in Spanish) always had a warm meal ready for us. Even when she worked for long hours and on her feat all day, she made sure we had a home cooked meal. She hardly ever used processed ingredients (Mexican cooking relies heavily on fresh ingredients), and only now-and-then did we get fed fast food or take out. My eldest sister would often step in to help with the cooking and we all had assigned chores. Even so, I often wonder how mami had the energy for working, cooking and cleaning for our family of 8. My sisters are all wonderful mothers. And I can see that they work just as hard to provide for their babies in every which way, just like our parents did.

My mother-in-law was a single parent who struggled and provided for her children in more ways than you can imagine. She was a great mother and is the best mother-in-law anyone could ever hope for. My sister-in-laws are also great moms.

All of these mothers in my family are an inspiration to me. One day I hope to be as good a mami as they all are. This post is dedicated to these beautiful women that have the hardest job in the world, and that I can proudly call my family.

This Saturday is Mother’s Day in Mexico and on Sunday is when American’s will celebrate it. I would like to share with you 38 recipes that I think your mamis would love. Enjoy and have a great day celebrating your mom!

    This is like a wonderful cookery book I’ll certainly peruse more closely after work! Would love to use the whole for a repost to friends but your ‘rules’ don’t seem to allow that too easily?

      Hi Eha! You can share, email and send the links or recipes to your friends — it’s no problem. The only rule I have regarding my recipes is that if someone is going to use them on their website, to please credit me as the author and link back to the original recipe. It’s only when people try to use my recipes or photos for their commercial purpose and gain that I do not allow. Hopes this clears it up. Thank you!:)

        Thanks Nancy: I have on quite a few occasions wanted to repost your marvellous blogs and have not been certain!

    Oh how I would have loved to have cooked at least one of these lovely dishes for my mom last week. I spent the week with her in Louisiana but unfortunately, since she’s in an assisted living place, I either had to go get take out or eat there. Not the best food in the world. Any of these dishes would have been 1000 times better! Great list Nancy!

    This is quite the collection! I would love to make each and every one of these for my mother (except not the desserts because for some reason, she does not like sweets.)
