Mother's Day Dinner

This year is obviously a very special Mother's Day for me because of this little lady:

Abbie has brought Chuck and I such happiness for the past 6 months (wow, time flies!) and I can't wait to celebrate being her mom. My parents are hosting Mother's Day dinner this year and I helped my mom plan the menu.

I love this time of year because spring has officially sprung and warm weather dishes like grilled meat, pasta salads, and lemon desserts start popping up. We are expecting about 15 people for this meal. Come back soon for some of the recipes!

Mother's Day Dinner




  • Meyer lemon buttermilk pudding cake with berries
  • White chocolate-covered strawberries
  • Chocolate peanut butter cheesecake

I love you, Abigail Claire!
