Favorite Mother's Day Dinner Recipes

Whether you are going for simple and sophisticated, or an all-out big time family feast, make sure the meal is planned with Mom in mind.

The most important thing is to make sure your menu is organized in advance. Also, the more guests you have the more coordinated you must be to pull off a truly smooth dinner event. No cooking or cleaning for Mom today!

Easy Yet Elegant

Let's face it: Any kind of dinner that Mom doesn't have to make is a good dinner, as far as Mom is concerned! But that's no excuse to serve up something plain, when it's so easy to surprise mom with a meal that's delicious and elegant. We are talking about Mom here, after all. :)

To keep it simple for the chef of the day - whoever he or she may be - we've focused on a handful of classic favorites. Most of these dishes can be prepared in under an hour, as long as you plan ahead:

 


 

Roast Chicken with Carrots and Potatoes

There may be no other dish in the world that is this easy to make and tastes this amazingly good! Roast chicken with roasted carrots and potatoes offers up a kind of casual elegance that's perfect for Mothers Day.

Baked Ham with Brown Sugar Glaze

Baked ham seems to make any dinner occasion seem more special, and like our other dishes, it's incredibly easy to prepare. Besides, there's no reason to limit your delicious ham dinners to Easter or Christmas, right?

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Few dishes appear more elegant than rack of lamb ... but this entree is surprisingly simple to make. Don't let the fact that you associate it with fine restaurants fool you. Anyone can do this.

Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon

This dish can be pan fried in a heavy skillet, or grilled. We prefer grilled, because it's the best way to get the bacon crispy at the same time the meat is done (pan frying tends to leave the bacon a bit soggy for our tastes). Besides, it's springtime, so if you haven't fired up the grill yet, what better time?

Chicken Parmigiana

Why not add a little Italian flare to your Mother's Day dinner? Our recipe for Chicken Parmigiana is a little more saucy and cheesy than most, but we've never had a complaint at home so we hope you love it too! Plus, our version has the advantage of being the easiest way we know of to serve up a delicious Chicken Parmigiana dinner!
