Cooking for Mother’s and Father’s Days

Cooking is a gift of love that comes straight from the heart, not to mention one of the top gifts men and women both say they want for their special day. Gather your siblings or children in the kitchen to take care of the person who takes care of you—it’s a great way to honor your parents or spouse, create lasting memories, and perhaps start a family tradition that will carry on for generations.

For Mom

Dutch Apple Baby
A fluffy pancake with the warm and juicy flavors of cinnamon apple.

Cinapple Syrup
This sweet apple syrup is the perfect complement to the Dutch Apple Baby. Save some for the evening’s dessert, and drizzle it atop vanilla ice cream or a slice of apple pie.

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Fondue
Raspberries add a bright, sweet note to the complex richness of dark chocolate. Irresistible with fruit slices and cake cubes.

Sparkling Champagne Smoothie
Toast Mom by blending her favorite fruit and yogurt flavors with chilled champagne.


For Dad

Asian Buffalo Sauce
If Dad loves buffalo sauce, he’ll eat up this Asian variation with orange, ginger, and soy sauce to liven up the flavor.

Pizza
We all love pizza; show your Dad love by making the crust from scratch and adding his favorite toppings.

Jalapeño Corn Bread
Spiced up with colorful red and green jalapeños and perfect for Dad’s secret chili recipe.

Cheese and Whiskey Fondue
Not only is the flavor memorable, but the dining experience is, too, especially if you follow the Swiss custom of paying a forfeit when you drop your cube of bread into the cheese sauce.
