Mother’s Day Recipes

By Caro

Here you will find various recipes, sweet & savoury, easy & more difficult. A lot of which, as suitable as a thank you gift for Mother's Day. In the UK it is on Sunday 19th March 2023, & in the States & other countries, 14th May 2023.

All recipes include thorough instructions & also a Kids Baking section to get them helping too. Some recipes which I have reviewed, are also suitable. Please note that at this time, not all recipes have been moved over on to this new improved version of the site here. But please check back regularly, as I am adding daily.

No need to mess about with gelatine, as this recipe uses packet jelly (jello). Which means you can easily flavour the mousse with your favourite flavour. This is Diana’s Nan’s recipe & she made the large mousse in the pics & I made individual ones in glass ramekins.
