Happy Mother’s Day 2014

Jackie Alvarez and Liz Sagaser kitchen

Look at that pretty picture above and pick a dessert. Go ahead and just gaze for a minute – you deserve a little eye candy. (It’s Mother’s Day after all!) I’ll help you out by telling you what they all are. From left to right we have a Cheesecake with Honey, Lavender and Figs, a Molten Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream, an assorted variety of Macaroons, Nutella and Fruit Dessert Tacos and a Cronut. Do you want to read through those desserts again slowly? Because that’s allowed. I’ll wait. (It’s Mother’s Day, you do what you want today!)

Ok, ok, Darling. Take a break from all the staring and pick one. Any one.

(That was cruel, wasn’t it? I told you to look through them all and then suddenly, I tell you that you can have only one. I apologize. And to make it up to you, I’ve included recipes to all these desserts below. You’re welcome for that.)

Did you pick? Read the descriptions below to determine what kind of delicious mom you are based on your dessert choice.

We know you have lots of other things to do today, but we wanted to say…

Hello, Darling. Happy Mother’s Day.

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream

You love your family and bystanders can feel the warmth of your devotion just by being near you. Relationships are of the utmost importance to you, and you make every effort to be present in the moment. Dinner time is a big deal because of the meaningful conversation, not what you serve for the meal. The simplest things make your heart sing – like playing at the park, cuddling up on the couch for a movie and popcorn, and rolling up your jeans to play in a stream with your kids.

The Recipe

The Pioneer Woman never leaves us hanging when it comes to recipes. Here’s hers for Molten Chocolate Cake.

Nutella and Fruit Dessert Tacos

You are one of the most Pinteresting moms on the block. The cupcakes on your counter are almost as delicious to see as they are to eat, and you baked them from scratch because “it was Tuesday.” Your house and your very being are comforting, sweet and filled with wholesome goodness. Your party planning is such a hit you’ve launched an Etsy shop! All of the details of your life, from meal planning to junior’s annual check-ups, are lovingly organized in charming binders on a shelf in the kitchen.

The Recipe

It’s a dessert that your kids will love right alongside of you. Go ahead and whip up some Nutella & Fruit Dessert Tacos.
