Friday Favorites: A Baking Mother's Day Gift Guide


Mom likes to bake and you want to show her how much you love her this Mother's Day? Well, the these thoughtful gifts are sure to bring a smile to her face. She may even bake you some of her famous chocolate almond fudge cookies to say thanks. That's just something moms do!


These West Elm nesting owl measuring cups are sure to bring a hoot to mom's kitchen. I'll take a set in white, thank you. (Photo: West Elm)



Mom knows that baking is a science and to get the best results, you should weigh your ingredients. This OXO food scale at Williams-Sonoma will help her get professional results. Maybe now she'll even start that bakery she's been talking about. (Photo: Williams-Sonoma)

And because Mom knows what's up, she knows that using ethically sourced baking ingredients is a must, she'll be delighted to use organic cocoa powder from Equal Exchange.

You know what, every baker likes to take a day off every now and then, plus, it's Mother's Day! Let mom undo her apron, kick up her feet, and cozy up to a vegan brownie like this amaretto almond one from Allison's Gourmet! (Photo credit: Allison's Gourmet)



Mama's going to need a pretty place to display all her creations at her next tea party, so these pastry stands from Fresh Pastry Stand featuring vintage dinnerware will do the trick quite nicely! (Photo credit: Fresh Pastry Stand)



Now, we all know moms love to cook for their kids, but now that you are eggless, dairy-free or vegan, what is she to do?. She's certainly tired of making you wacky cake all the time and would like to expand her repertoire, so make it easy on her. With over 150 recipes, "Quick and Easy Vegan Bake Sale" will broaden her baking horizons. Who knows, maybe with a few of these treats under her belt, she might just cross over to the dark side. ;)

  3. Great post!! Cookbook looks great. going to look for that since I still cook vegan for my family. I wanted to lick the screen when I saw the brownie especially since I'm on day 22 of my 30-40 day juice cleanse.
