Marvelous Mother's Day Recipes

All that I am or ever hope to be,

I owe to my angel Mother.

Moms. There just aren't enough words to say how much they do---every day, all day. They deserve to be pampered throughout the year -- but especially on Mother's Day. While there's no way to thank moms for everything they do -- homemade food is a surefire way to say you appreciate her and warm her heart.

There's no telling who might be in the kitchen on Mother's Day -- dads, kids, even moms cooking for their own mothers. No matter who is turning on the oven, we've highlighted some Mother's Day recipes easy enough for all types of cooks.
