If you’re a mom, there’s a good chance that you do a lot of cooking and meal prepping in your house. I know that for me, I’m not necessarily expecting a huge gift or extravagant trip for Mother’s Day. I’d just really love to have a break from some of my daily tasks. Take the day off this Mother’s Day and let the rest of the family do the cooking! I tried to find recipes that are relatively simple so that even husbands and kids who don’t normally cook can easily take over in the kitchen.

Here’s a list of Mother’s Day recipe ideas that would be great for breakfast or brunch, lunch, or dinner. (Feel free to pass this list along to the spouse or kids in the house.)
