25+ Mother's Day Dinner Recipes and Menu Ideas

Mother's Day is an annual holiday celebrated on the second Sunday of May in many countries around the world. It is a day to honor and celebrate mothers and motherhood. It is a day to recognize the contribution mothers make to the lives of their children and families.

A great Mother’s Day celebration can be made extra special with delicious food. Start the day off by making your mom her favorite breakfast or brunch. For lunch or dinner, make her favorite dish. You can also make a special dessert for her, such as a homemade cake or cupcakes.

Don't forget to top it all off with a nice bottle of wine or champagne. Let your mom relax and enjoy the day with her favorite food and drinks. It's a great way to show her how much you appreciate all she does.

Delicious Salmon Steaks

The mayo is the secret to this recipe it’s what locks in all the moisture in the fish, you can also use large thick salmon fillets in place of the steaks but I advise to leave the skin on for the best flavor,  I prefer to use Atlantic salmon fillets but any salmon will do fine, these also may be made on the grill placed in a disposable foil pan and amounts may be doubled

Sue's Perfect Prime Rib

This makes a delicious, tender prime rib roast. Great for the holidays! Rubs are used to flavor the meat, and are optional.

Fresh Tomato Basil Linguine

This is my new favorite pasta recipe. I've made it about 10 times the last few months because it's so easy and so good. It's adapted from a grocery store recipe. It's great even without the chicken. You can add onion to this also by sauteing some in the olive oil before adding the tomatoes. Please use all fresh ingredients for the best results.

Crock Pot Lasagna

Easiest ever and very good !!

Stuffed Chicken Rolls With Spinach, Cheese & Tomato Olive Sauce

One of my favorite recipes. And, it is actually pretty easy to make. Thin pounded chicken breasts stuffed with spinach, olives, cheeses, and shallots; rolled up and served with a rich sun dried and diced tomato, and olive sauce. I like to serve this with pasta tossed with garlic and fresh herbs, salad and some roasted squash.

Trinidad Macaroni Pie

Macaroni Pie is a staple here in Trinidad and one of the first dishes I learnt to make. Eat it on it's own with ketchup and pepper or serve alongside any type of meat, veggie or bean dish which has lots of gravy. Totally delicious! Some people even add in some grated carrots or chopped pimentos before baking. I like mine plain with lots of black pepper.

Easy Lemon Parmesan Baked Salmon

This is very quick, very healthy, and very easy. I served this with a quick and easy saute (see: "Quick Sauteed Curry Style Vegetables" in my recipes).

Beas Stuffed Peppers

This a recipe I make quite often. It is so easy to put together and enjoyed by everyone in this household. If gluten intolerant make sure you are using gluten free taco seasoning.

Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms

Very decadent, but really delicious. I wouldn't necessarily take these to a potluck party, but these are wonderful to make for a small dinner party (10-12 people). Lobster can be a bit pricey, but for a small group they are really o good. Just watch for the sales on lobster and then it isn't too expensive. This makes approximately 36 mushrooms.

Just Like Carrabba's Italian Grill Chicken Marsala

I went to Carrabba's Italian Grill one day, and had their Chicken Marsala. It was the most delicious meal I have ever eaten in a restaurant. I loved the blend of flavors from the spices in the chicken, mixed with the wine infused mushroom sauce. In short, it was incredible! My mouth waters every time I think of it to this day. Here is the recipe for everyone to enjoy. Is it company...

Emily's Creamy Tortellini Soup

A creamy tortellini soup, perfect for a cold day and garlic bread (or a grilled cheese!) to dip into it! We use California Sun Dry Sun-Dried Tomatoes Julienne Cut with Herbs, Better than Bouillon Chicken Base and Barilla Collezione Three Cheese Tortellini (it's in the dry pasta section at our local Walmart). I've never experimented with other brands. We like a thicker soup, so we use...

Orange Ginger Chicken

Orange ginger chicken is a mouth-watering combination of tender chicken, zesty orange, and spicy ginger. The tangy and sweet citrus flavor of the orange perfectly complements the warm and pungent notes of the ginger, resulting in a flavor explosion in every bite. The juicy chicken is cooked to perfection, soaking up all the flavors of the marinade and creating a deliciously satisfying meal that...

Tipsy Chicken

Along time favourite at our house. It's quick, easy and delicious. Great with a green salad and crusty bread - special enough to serve quests.

The Ultimate Flank Steak

SOURCE SHADOWS -- This is the way I posted this recipe originally to Aboutdotcom. This steak is best served with the center red/pink, it is at it’s most tender state at that point. The flavors can be intensified by using your favorite smoking chips on the cooking coals (I use sassafras, hickory, or apple). Leftovers make excellent sandwiches when topped with bacon, tomato and melted cheese...

Basil Lime Grilled Pork Chops

The lovely flavours of fresh basil, lime and garlic make a very juicy grilled pork chop! Only 30 minutes of marinating! The cook time includes the marinating time.

Creamy Chicken and Biscuits

This is one of my daughter's recipes which we made together when she was visiting after Easter.

Perfect Pan Seared To Oven Steak

This is a great recipe for when you can't get to the grill. Perfect for those awful winter blizzardy days... when you can't find the BBQ buried under all the snow. This will give you a medium-rare steak. If you prefer it done more, add a minute ot two per side. For gluten free use gluten free Worcestershire sauce.

Vegetable Bundles

Come holiday time I always add several new dishes to the holiday table. The hit of my last Canadian Thanksgiving table back in October was Vegetable Bundles. Made for great tasting vegetables and awesome presentation. You can make these bundles using carrot sticks, green or yellow beans or asparagus spears. I used orange and yellow carrots - certainly will be looking for fresh beans and asparagus...

Roasted Asparagus With Balsamic Vinegar

A really simple way to roast asparagus. Can be served hot or cooled to room temperature for use in salads.

Our Favourite Glazed Carrots

Sweet glazed carrots are a great addition to the holiday table or any time you want to add a special side dish to make for that added touch. This recipe is from my daughters collection and the one her young son choose for the cookbook created and published as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of our local school. We love these delicious and easy to make glazed carrots, a family favourite and a...

Ana's Honey and Soy Glazed Salmon

A great way to serve up salmon any day of the week. Great with other fish too! I bet it would even be wonderful with scallops or shrimp on the grill, and also chicken, although you would probably have to make more sauce... YUM! Try doubling up on the sauce, and serving it over rice along with your meal.

Low Fat Smashed Loaded Potatoes

We love all the flavors of a loaded baked potato, but not the fat/saturated fat. So I turned that into a low fat smashed (or mashed, if you like) potato side dish. Portions are filling, and are approximately 5.5 grams of fat per person (calculated from the labels of all the ingredients), including the bacon pieces.

Roasted Potato, Bacon, and Cheddar Soup

A hearty soup for Fall or Winter. Garnish with chopped chives, shredded cheddar or croutons. The potato peels add nice texture and flavor to soup.

Sunday Pot Roast

Tender, rich Sunday Pot roast, flavoured with red wine; is there anything more delicious?

Dressed Peas

This recipe is from "Company's coming for Christmas" and has been a regular here from the first time I tried them. The recipe makes 12 servings. These peas may also be served as a cold vegetable

Instant Pot Risotto -Deeeeeelish

Risotto has never been so easy, no constant stirring and no fuss. Just let the pressure cooker do the work and it turns out rich and creamy just like if you cooked it the old fashioned way. The end result is deeeeelicious…. Make sure you are using a good quality chicken broth, not the powdered bouillon stuff as this makes a big difference in the flavour of this dish.

Sausage Stuffed Venison Steaks

This is a recipe I put together yearly. I make loads of these at a time and freeze them. I have scaled the recipe down to 6 servings. You can grill these or pan fry them as is. I usually give these a quick sear on both sides over high heat then reduce the heat to medium-low, deglaze the pan with a bit of white wine and simmer them in a marinara sauce until cooked through. The cooking method is...
