Finally…it’s almost here! I must say I’ve been waiting all year for “my day” to show up on the calendar! Being the mother of 2 adorable children and a full-time working mom, I am constantly on the go and lucky if I can keep all the balls in the air and successfully “juggled”! So when Mother’s Day comes around, I truly do look forward to it and hope my one day off from my loving family will be truly – one day off – where I don’t have to do laundry, clean, work, shuttle people from one place to another, get costumes together for the school play, make treats for one child’s class…well –if you are a mom, you know the drill. Don’t get me wrong…being a mom is great and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Just one day is all I ask.
So what does all this have to do with Mother’s Day Muffins you might ask? Well, I was sitting here thinking about Mother’s Day and what I would enjoy from my family. On my “one day off” I would love it if my kids made me breakfast. But being that they are only 7 and 10 it needs to be something relatively easy to make. A great easy menu for them (with the help of Dad, of course) would be something like this:
My Mother’s Day Breakfast:
- Orange Juice
- Fresh Fruit
- Scrambled Eggs
- Blueberry Muffins
That’s it! Simple, but to me….divine. Why muffins? They are quite simple to make and I know that they can be made gluten-free with perfect results. For kids, cooking, and baking, in particular, is great fun. For some reason combining a concoction of dry ingredients and then wet ingredients and mixing it all together is true fun (it might have something to do with the fact that they get to lick the bowl and spoon when they are all done!). Plus, the best part is that when it comes out of the oven they can see the amazing, delicious results!

Hopefully this Mother’s day you will get the opportunity to just relax, sit back and enjoy all that you’ve been blessed with as you sit and eat your specially prepared Mother’s Day muffin….I know I will.
