Whether someone is cooking for you, you&rsquore treating yourself or making light bites for some mama friends, these 20 Mother's Day Recipes will give you lots of inspiration here.

I&rsquom hoping the second you saw the title of this post you immediately forwarded it to your significant other to remind them you&rsquore not cooking! On the other hand, if your mother is coming over, hopefully it will give you tons of mouthwatering recipe ideas you can make to celebrate mother&rsquos day with her.

I love being surprised in bed by the kids with a tray full of delicious bites on Mother's Day. Every time is something different, but over the years some of the inspiration for a few of these recipes came from the kids and their creations on holidays like Mother&rsquos Day. A few of my personal faves are the Avocado Toast (I will never get bored of it), Heart Parfaits and Waffle French Toast, but I&rsquom honestly an equal opportunist for all. Happy Mother&rsquos Day to all the mamas out there who are always doing for others!


Celebrate Juneteenth with poɻoys, fried chicken and grits and cornbread cobbler

Juneteenth is a time for celebration. It's a time to bring my friends and family together with soul food at the center of the table.

As I continue to grow and learn as a Black man and chef, I often seek ways to reimagine the foods I've grown up eating. My Cornbread Sweet Potato Cobbler, Hot Honey Fried Chicken with White Cheddar Coconut Grits and Nashville Hot Catfish Po'boys are perfect examples of that.

I look at the the opportunity to feed people as an opportunity for me to share who I am and the stories and ingredients that my ancestors put into the meals that nourished the stomachs and souls of many generations.

So, no matter how you choose to celebrate this special day, keep in mind these dishes, as they are packed with soul, curiosity and, of course, flavor.

Nashville Hot Catfish Poɻoys

Driving through the streets of Detroit, my hometown, it was common to pass by locals hosting fish fries, especially on Sundays. It was a community celebration with good food at the center of it. As my homage to those fish fries, I combined two of my favorite Southern dishes — Nashville hot chicken and catfish po'boys — to create one over-the-top sandwich worthy of celebration. You never knew the New Orleans staple would benefit so much from the vinegary Nashville hot sauce. And whether you prefer your fish fried or grilled on your sandwich, this recipe has got you covered.

Hot Honey Fried Chicken with White Cheddar-Coconut Grits

I'm convinced that I was powered off grits until the age of 16 I ate it at all times of the day. Grits are the first food that I remember my grandma preparing me before I went off to school, as I sat in her kitchen watching morning cooking shows. These creamy, decadent grits are prepared with coconut milk and white cheddar, then topped with fatty roasted tomatoes and crispy fried chicken to create a meal that's perfect for any weekend brunch or Sunday supper.

Cornbread Sweet Potato Cobbler

Cornbread and sweet potatoes were two things that could consistently be found at my dinner table growing up. These two dishes were a crucial staple on the plates of my ancestors — and this dish reimagines them by combining them. This cobbler begins with a handful of warm spices, maple syrup, sweet potatoes, plums and blackberries. But, unlike my grandmother's cobbler, this one's topping is made from a few scoops of cornbread. So, using a cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven for this summer-ready dessert not only allows for a beautiful presentation but also lets you bake it directly in the pan, making for fewer dishes.

If you like those Juneteenth-ready recipes, you should also try these:

Make Mother's Day brunch special with these 20 recipes from the Star Tribune's archives

"When drama emerges from eggs, flour, milk and sugar, that can be a very good thing," writes Kim Ode in 2015. "A theatrically puffed German pancake is a delicious way to lend some pizazz to a celebratory brunch. The resulting pancake has the bite of a crêpe, the loft of a soufflé, the egginess of custard and the brown shoulders of a popover." Find the recipe here.

ANDREW SCRIVANI • New York Times

Shakshuka

"Shakshuka, which is basically eggs poached in a peppery tomato stew, is delicious, and it has the appearance that you've fussed, but the effort you're actually investing is minimal," writes Rick Nelson in 2018. "It's one of those centerpiece recipes that never fails to impress. An easy stovetop meal, shakshuka comes together in a flash. It requires a little chopping, some simmering and a round of egg-cracking. Thirty or so minutes, and you're eating." Find the recipe here.

TOM WALLACE • Star Tribune file

Bruschetta with Scrambled Eggs and Lobster

"It was the name that caught my attention: Soft eggs with lobster," writes Lee Svitak Dean in 2010. "On bruschetta, no less. Little did I know it came scrambled with cream cheese and drizzled with truffle oil. Wow. I was dazzled before I took the first bite. What came to mind after I had savored the luxurious treat at Bar La Grassa in Minneapolis, and after a few contented groans, was this: I could simplify the recipe and make it at home." Find the recipe here.

METTE NIELSEN • Special to the Star Tribune

Farmers Market Frittata with Spinach and Persian Spices

"Frittatas are so versatile, forgiving and adaptable that I'm in danger of serving them way too often," writes Beth Dooley in 2019. "Perfect for brunch, lunch, as an appetizer with drinks or a light dinner, a good frittata can be served warm, at room temperature or straight from the refrigerator." Find the recipe here.

METTE NIELSEN • Special to the Star Tribune

Crustless Quiche

"When making quiche, many of us struggle with the crust," writes Beth Dooley in 2019. "While it adds flavor and crunch, it takes time and is a bit messy to make from scratch. But you really don't need one. You can skip making a crust, dust a greased pan with flour, and you've got a fine breakfast, brunch, lunch or light dinner in no time flat." Find the recipe here.

METTE NIELSEN • Special to the Star Tribune

Leek and Cheddar Pie

"Leeks are a workhorse in my kitchen," writes Beth Dooley in 2021. "I like to make a leek confit to keep on hand as a base for a variety of pastas, soups, stews and pilafs, to garnish chicken and pork, top off pizza, and for a quick, comforting — and pretty — tart." Find the recipe here.

Perfect Quiche

"Quiche, that culinary darling of the 1970s, suddenly seems to be appearing on menus everywhere," writes Rick Nelson in 2014. "At [the former] Empire Coffee + Pastry in northeast Minneapolis, quiche — truly impressive quiche, it must be said — has been a top seller. What the restaurant industry might not want the world to know is that this open-faced custard pie is a snap to prepare, even for novice bakers." Find the recipe here.

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

"This is a tale of a simple egg, scrambled over low heat, with just enough patience to make it perfect," writes Lee Svitak Dean in 2017. "It is not the scrambled egg of my childhood." Find the recipe here.

Four recipes where eggs take center stage

"Whatever your culinary dilemma may be, eggs are likely the answer, and for good reason," writes Meredith Deeds in 2020. "They're a quick-cooking, nutritious, inexpensive and tasty ingredient that most of us have in our refrigerators." The recipes include Crab-Stuffed Deviled Eggs Asparagus Basil Scrambled Eggs in Parmesan Parmesan Dutch Baby with Crispy Pancetta Skillet Bacon-Cheddar Quiche with Hash-Brown Crust and Blueberry-Lemon Cream-Cheese French Toast Casserole. Find them here.

Al's Breakfast's Blueberry-Walnut Pancakes

"The recipe hails from 'James Beard's All-American Eats' (Rizzoli, 2016), and when it was published last spring, I remember telling Al's co-owner Doug Grina that I was happy to see his small restaurant receive such big play in the cookbook's pages," writes Rick Nelson in 2016. "Mighty Al's deserves nothing less." Find the recipe here.

Swedish Pancakes

"Swedish pancakes are to traditional pancakes as regular burgers are to veggie burgers," writes Lee Svitak Dean in 2020. "That is, they vaguely look alike (they are both round), but few diners would mistake one for the other. The Swedish version appears as thin and delicate as a crêpe, and could be mistaken for one. The traditional pancake is, well, the usual hot cake we see on the plate." Find the recipe here.

Foolproof crêpes

"Give yourself some time to practice," writes Lee Svitak Dean in 2020. "Even Julia Child says the first crêpe is a 'trial to test out the consistency of the batter, and exact amount you need for the pan, and the heat.'" Find the recipe here.

Wild Rice Crêpes with Chicken, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese

"If the idea of making crêpes feels too intimidating, let me assure you that it's much easier than you think," writes Meredith Deeds in 2017. "You don't need a special pan a simple nonstick skillet will do. All that separates a crêpe from a pancake is that crêpes have a thinner batter and you can only make one at a time. I will warn you, though, that your first crêpe is typically doomed to failure. It usually seems to fall apart. The second one almost always works perfectly, though." Find the recipe here.

Four waffle recipes

"Summer cabin guests, your buying-a-host-gift worries are over," writes Rick Nelson in 2017. "Rather than wine, candles or some other generic, easily forgotten gesture, consider tying a ribbon around a waffle maker. It's the gift that keeps on giving. The recipients will enjoy waffles, into perpetuity, and every time they prepare waffles, they'll think of you. And those (presumably happy) thoughts could very well trigger a 'Let's invite them back' conversation. See? Everyone wins." The recipes are for Overnight Waffles Plain-and-Easy Breakfast Quickies Basic Buttermilk Waffles Georgia Bits and Grits Waffles. Find them here.

Fried Bread with Greens

"When we crave a crunchy, browned piece of bread, we typically turn to our toasters," writes Meredith Deeds in 2020. "As much as toast may seem like the undisputed champion of quick and easy comfort food, it does have some serious competition — think fried bread. It's almost as easy to make as toast. All you need to do is add a pat of butter, splash of olive oil or any fat you like, even bacon drippings, to a hot skillet and brown thick slabs of bread on both sides. If this technique sounds familiar to you, it should. You've certainly done it before, most likely in the form of a grilled cheese sandwich. The concept is the same, without the cheese." Find the recipe here.

Four brunch recipes from Chicago pastry chef Gale Gand

"Breakfast is becoming the new dinner," said Gand in a 2009 story by Rick Nelson. "It's the new family gathering meal. People might not be able to always gather at the dinner table, but they still want that togetherness. They still need that." Recipes include Almond Ciabatta French Toast Bacon-Green Onions Scone Corn and Parmesan Fritters and Fried Matzoh. Find them here.

Breakfast Bread Pudding

"The pudding bakes up to be light and moist, slightly jiggly in the center, with a deep golden crust," writes Beth Dooley in 2020. "Its cinnamon scent wafts through the house, drawing sleepy heads into the kitchen and setting a comforting tone for the rest of the day." Find the recipe here.

"I always add blueberries, in part because we usually have some in the freezer, lingering from our annual sojourn to a Wisconsin U-pick farm that's coincidentally not too far from her hometown. But I also like blueberries, and I appreciate the happy pop of color that they contribute to this dense, golden cake." Find the recipe here.
