How will you be spending Mother’s Day?

We have no plans, just the way I like it. I don’t expect gifts, roses, cards, breakfast in bed, or anything other than just a calm, smooth, easy day.

As a mom, just getting through the day with everyone and everything in one piece and no meltdowns is the best gift of all. And of course, to spend time with my sweet little girl and husband.

Happy Mother’s Day!

  1. What a gorgeous new site you have! :)

  2. Happy Mother’s Day, Averie!! Cookie butter and funfetti???? How did I miss that before?

  3. Everything looks wonderful and any Mother would be tickled pink to have on your delicious recipes cooked for them! Happy early Mothers Day!!

  4. These are all great ideas! I love the new look of your blog too!

  5. Great round-up and I sooo eyed up those cranberry bars. I gotta make those!! Love the clean new look to btw…

    • Funny you’re like the 5th person who specifically mentioned the Cran Bliss Bars. I loved those things, Gerry! They are ridic good and dare I say, better than Starbucks. And thanks for noticing the new look. Went live Friday about 5p and just posted now about it!

  6. Ok, this is hilarious! We both updated our blogs to the same Word Press theme! I clicked on your blog earlier today and I was like, “hey, something looks different here, but yet similar.” I then figured out it was your new look! I love it and I love the new and cute little logo! It’s so you and perfect. I made the switch to make my ads bigger and to also get a better recipe page, like I see you have done. I’m still working on the recipe categorization, but hopefully I will have that up and running soon. It just takes time (and brain power) to organize all of those categories. I do love that this theme has the photos with the recipes! It makes everything just that much better. I have photos for some of my categories at the bottom of my sidebar and I have been opening them up all day, just so I can look at all the pictures. I know, I’m a total dork! Ok, all of these recipes look amazing girl! Have a wonderful Mother’s day if I don’t speak to you before then! xoxo, Jackie

    • Actually, mine isn’t a wordpress theme at all. It’s a custom-built site that I have had a designer working on for ages. I was on her waiting list for a year and it just went live today! I just posted about it in my ‘Weekend Things’ post that just went live, about what’s going on with it, the functionality, etc. and how thrilled I am about it! Thanks for noticing all the hard work. It just went live late in the day Friday! Now I am off to catch up on everyone’s blog and go see your new look!

  7. I love your new site Averie! Very pretty!! And amazing round up!

    • Thank you so much, Jaclyn! I remember being in Aruba over Xmas and seeing your new site and knowing mine was coming…and it took everything in me to just.have.patience. Your site is one that I’ve looked to for inspiration and it truly is, Cooking, Classy.

  8. These are all awesome! I would kill for one of those cinnamon rolls right now!
