Have you ever gone through something traumatic with your kids that still makes your heart ache at the thought of it as you still remember the details of that event? I’m sure every mom has a similar story that happened to her at least once in their mothering journey.

Mother’s Day Crepes Recipe

What comes to mind when you think of a Mother’s Day meal? To me, all my mom’s famous dishes immediately pop into my head as a reminder of her love for cooking and baking. Borsch, Apple Pie, Lemon Pie, Jams…Mmmm. But one dish stands out above the rest. It’s what my mom is known for, and it’s what I think of first when I think of my Mama. It’s my Mom’s Infamous Crepes. She makes them plain, stuffed with berries, stuffed with farmer’s cottage cheese, and stuffed with meat. All of the variations she makes are absolutely delicious. The good news is, crepes are not that hard to make! Once you get the hang of it, possibilities of serving them are aplenty. Today I’ll share with you my Crepes Recipe that you can make for your mom (or with your Mom) as well.

Mother’s Day DIY Fingerprint Jar Vase

Mother’s Day is a wonderful time of year to celebrate the mothers in your life. But what I love in particular is coming up with fun crafts that the kids can do by themselves for their Grandma. A few years back, we had made a beautiful vase for her, all decorated with kids’ fingerprints . We also made paper flowers, all of which had sweet sentiments written on them to put inside. The idea was for my Mom-in-Law to use the jar as a vase for her bouquets all year round. But instead, she has kept it as is and proudly displays it on her shelf to this day. Whatever a special mom in your life decides to use it for, I think our Mother’s Day DIY Fingerprint Jar Vase will be a very special gift indeed!
