As summer approaches, try this cooling fresca as a replacement to sugary lemonade. The fresh watermelon and lime juice give this mock-tail a unique flavor and you can top it off with springs of cilantro for a touch of fresh garden flavor. It makes the perfect family-friendly beverage for a Mother’s Day brunch.

Spring to me means fresh green soups and that’s just what I created for this year’s Mother’s day menu at our home. This soup combines sweet veggie flavor from the peas with creaminess from almonds. I added a few sprigs of fresh mint and my favorite Vidalia onions to dazzle taste buds and add a sweet touch without any added sugar. Pair this soup with a salad and lean protein such as grilled fish and a spinach salad for a Mother’s Day dinner that Mom will love.

A few days before Mother’s Day, my kids and I plan out the menu and hit the market so we’re fully stocked and ready to cook. Here are some mouthwatering Mother’s Day breakfast picks, complete with tasks your kids can do.

Mmm springtime! Forget a basic garden salad, this salad is filled to the brim with flavorful strawberries and a touch of sweet balsamic vinegar and lime juice. You can make this salad to accompany lunch or dinner; I’m planning to serve it to my mother for Mother’s Day brunch on our back deck alongside roasted vegetables. This salad is packed with nutrients — everything from fresh basil to crunchy almonds that will leave you (and Mom) smiling!
