Hey Mama! Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you for everything you’ve done for us. Are you looking for something special for Mom? Here’s a few ideas to help show your appreciation and let her know how much she means to you!
A thoughtful gift doesn’t need to be complicated by any means! Get to the heart of the matter: what do you want to accomplish? Boil it down to its purest essence and see what you find and then hone in on how you want to communicate it! Anything can be a thoughtful gift if the recipient feels loved and understood in receiving it. For those of us who have been so fortunate as to receive some heart-melting macaroni art, you know what I’m talking about.
Thoughtful gifts don’t need to be expensive either! A heartfelt letter and a favorite latte, fresh flowers in a favorite color palette, a tasty brunch, a tidy house or yard; none are lavish or costly, but they are certainly thoughtful! They can even include Z Wraps if you’re so inclined: wrap a bouquet, starter plants for the garden, fresh ingredients for brunch, pack a picnic, or cut down on kitchen cleanup by using it as a work surface (it also gives you some extra grip on your juicer or cutting board this way!
Fresh, Warm Scones!
So you’ve decided to surprise mom with a tasty brunch treat and a smashing bouquet of fresh flowers. Great choice! We’ll help- we did the work of putting together a simple yet impressive recipe for you: warm, delicious Mother’s Day Scones! It’s tasty, customizable, and very simple to create. Flavor them however you like best, and pair them with some fresh-squeezed juice, homemade whipped cream, and a bowl of fruit for a luxe, decadent touch. Here’s how to whip up a batch of homemade scones for Mom!
You will need about 1 hour, 2 bowls (md/lg and small), these ingredients, and a surface to work on- we used a Z Wrap to help us prep and simplify cleanup.
Preheat oven to 400*F
In a Large/Medium bowl, whisk together:
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- Any spices you’re using
Grate in 1 stick of cold butter, stirring occasionally to distribute
Now, Mix In
⅓ cup any fruit, nuts, other add-in- we used dried cranberries and chopped pistachios
In a separate small bowl, whisk together until smooth:
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup sour cream or full fat yogurt
Stir the sour cream and egg mix into the flour+butter mix, pressing into the side of the bowl until incorporated. Pat or roll out on a Z Wrap or parchment, and use a dough cutter or gently with a pizza cutter to make about 8 triangles. Place on a baking sheet in the 400* oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. For extra sweetness, add a thin icing, sprinkle of chopped nuts, edible flowers, or sprinkle of crystal sugar.
