It seems early to be thinking about Mother’s Day but. let’s just say it… things are all screwed up in our world right now – and this year you are probably going to need some online Mother’s Day gift ideas in order to celebrate MOM in the way she deserves.
I don’t know about you, but Easter kinda snuck up on me. I really didn’t get to take advantage of purchasing my typical Easter fare because I was so far behind the 8 ball with dealing with our new / temporary “normal!”
AH – but now I’m ready and said to Danni this week – if we are going to do something for Mother’s Day, we really should be putting together online Mother’s Day gift ideas NOW so we all receive our packages in time.
We’ve tried to include a mix of local, national and mainstream items Mom will love.
SO – in the words of Babe (one of my fav characters on Grace and Frankie) :
My kids grew up thinking Easter breakfast meant Grammie’s Old Fashioned Cinnamon Buns.
AND until this year, every Easter I can remember involved receiving a care package from my mom complete with Easter goodies and of course, a full supply of Grammie’s cinnamon buns.
This year, my mom is recovering from a nasty broken wrist, so in addition to our required social distancing, the kids pretty much gave up on the idea of our traditional Easter breakfast.
But momma to the rescue this year, because not only do I have just a little time on my hands, I ALSO happen to have YEAST.
With my mom’s guidance, I set about trying to replicate Grammie’s Old Fashioned Cinnamon Buns and save our Easter breakfast tradition. Remember, this recipe comes from my mom’s mom, and who knows who before that – so it is a very traditional recipe.
Fun fact about Danni..I am not really a dessert person. I would pass on the sweets for a salty chip any day. Although if that dessert happens to be Creme Brulee, then bring it on. So as St. Patrick’s Day approaches, I was trying to think of a green food, that I would love with out the green food colouring. So why not a Matcha Creme Brulee dessert. Yum!
You would really be surprised at how easy this dessert is to make. With a name like ‘Creme Brulee’ (in my french accent), you would think it is difficult, but not so.
