Your Mom’s cooking: you either love it or hate it, and even when you do hate it, you say you love it!
If your mother is a mom who cooks, treat her this Mother’s Day with these great gifts. Mom will cook fantastic meals every time with these culinary gifts!
Here are my top ten Mother’s Day gifts for moms who cook:
10. Gift basket with kitchen tools
Find an awesome basket and fill it to the brim with tools like as cookie cutters, pairing knives, measuring cups and spoons, and a few gourmet ingredients. If mom is a “pro” look for unusual tools – the very best garlic press, restaurant quality mixing spoons and spatulas, a real wooden rolling pin. She’ll love the thought that went into it!
9. Dinnerware replacements
Remember when you broke you great-aunt’s serving bowl and thought that it was irreplaceable? You can find almost anything, from any time period! Replace everything you’ve broken and mend “broken pieces”.
8. Wooden chopping block
If you can, have an entire counter replaced with butcher block. You can also buy mom a rolling butcher block top island. Smaller budget or less space? Mom will appreciate a new, heavy wooden chopping block. If you go all out and get her amazing knives, make sure to get her a nice, heavy wooden cutting board. It protects and lengthens the life of your cutlery and ensures even, safe cuts all the time.
7. Macaron cookbook
Mastering the Art of Macaron making will make her the talk of the town, because these French pastries are the newest trend! The delicate flavors, the precise piping and the delicious outcomes will make Grandma’s Oatmeal Cookies a thing of the past! Any cookbook on a specialty item is a treat for a mother who cooks, or pay for her membership in a cookbook club.
6. Cooking classes
For the Mother that can’t fry an egg, to the Mother that makes perfect meals every time, Cooking Classes will bring out the chef in anyone! Check your local kitchen supply stores as well as culinary schools in the area for schedules and offerings.
5. Mail order steaks
Don’t just think “dad” when it comes to grilling and steaks. Nothing is better than receiving an order of steaks to throw on the grill or have dinner with! Mom will love you for it and might just cook you one of the steaks! Bon Appétit!
Sharp knives will always be safer than dull ones because you will have more control and focus will using them. Make sure to keep them sharp with a stone and steel. Cooking with a sharpened professional-quality knife makes the activity run smoother.
3. Dinner of the Month Club
Sometimes Mom’s just don’t want to cook, so with this membership to the Dinner of the Month Club she’ll pick and choose when to have a complete gourmet meal, with just 30 minutes of preparation time on her part! Because Mom’s deserve a break also!
2. iPad 2 with Cooking Apps included
Personalize her new Ipad with pre-downloaded cooking and recipe applications. Download the most popular apps for her, and then sit down and show her how to find more. As an added bonus, include an iPad stand so her new toy doesn’t get too dirty in the kitchen!
1. KitchenAid stand mixer
The happiness a KitchenAid Mixer can bring to a family are innumerable: fluffy cakes, whipped frostings, kneaded fresh bread, airy meringues and dense cookie dough are just a few items possible with this mixer. If your Mom is a baker at heart, this will be the cherry on top!
Spend a day learning your family’s traditional recipes with your Mom by your side, teaching you how your grandmother’s used to make the recipes. Cooking with family can be one of the most relaxing activities, especially when it’s with someone you love and adore like your Mother.
