Week TWO: Recap!

This week, we celebrated Mother's Day with a Mother's Day brunch! We made homemade waffles, yogurt parfaits, and fruit flowers.
Dads: These recipes can help you and your little ones create a thoughtful breakfast to surprise the special lady in your life! :)

This is the best homemade waffle recipe I have ever tried -- they were so light and fluffy! We topped them with whipped cream and syrup and strawberry jam.

This is such an easy recipe! These yogurt parfaits would make a great last-minute breakfast, and are also fun for a play-date or kids party, because your little guests will certainly enjoy picking out their own parfait combos.

We made our own version of fruit skewers with chopsticks instead of actual skewers, for safety. We used cookie cutters (I recommend the tin cookie cutters, not the plastic ones) to cut pineapple slices into fun shapes. Next we sliced strawberries and used a melon baller to scoop canteloupe! After stacking the fruit onto the chopstick, we gave it one last beautiful touch -- a sprig of mint. The mint not only smells and tastes lovely, but it added a "leafy" quality to our fruit flowers. Beautiful!
