What Mom Really Wants

Lilly M.
Make it the best Mother’s Day ever

We’re just going to say it: Mother’s Day is the ultimate collision of good intention and missed expectation. This year, we asked real-life moms from the team behind Pillsbury.com to give it to us straight by asking, “What do you really want?”

What would you like to eat this Mother’s Day?
I’ve been eyeing the Cheesy Southwest Egg Bake from our Spring Lookbook. Our members have been giving it rave reviews! Plus it’s so easy, and we can still sleep in.

What’s one Mother’s Day wish you have?
Mommy and son photos! This is my first Mother’s Day, and I’m amazed at how quickly my little guy has already grown. I’m usually the one behind the camera so I have tons of photos of him, but not many of us together. I think a Mother’s Day family photo tradition would be a lot of fun.

What would you like to eat this Mother’s Day?
Strawberry Fudge Pie. I LOVE chocolate. And the strawberries add a bite of freshness to the rich, velvet flavor of the fudge!

What’s one Mother’s Day wish you have?
I would love to spend the day with my family, having a picnic and being outdoors.

What would you like to eat this Mother’s Day?
It would have to be one of our new monkey breads. I’m dying to try the Cream Cheese Stuffed Monkey Bread, and I know the Double Chocolate Monkey Bread is awesome. My son can make these, so can I have both?

What’s one Mother’s Day wish you have?
Since my son is getting so big and independent, I would love for him to spend the day with me, just doing stuff together.

What would you like to eat this Mother’s Day?
I’m a nut for pastries, so I’m putting in a request for New Orleans-style beignets and an XXL café latte!

What’s one Mother’s Day wish you have?
Well, I do NOT wish for breakfast in bed. Especially if we’re going to have powdered sugar bombs like beignets. I would just like to keep it simple with good coffee, good treats and a family walk that no one complains about. And I always like fresh-cut flowers (hint, hint).

What would you like to eat this Mother’s Day?
It’s a toss-up between the Huevos Rancheros Tarts and a Dark Cherry-Chocolate Breakfast Pastry. The huevos at Hell’s Kitchen in Minneapolis is one of my all-time favorite brunch dishes, but it’s so complicated to make at home (believe me, I’ve tried). This version makes it so easy. And for the tart? I have the worst sweet tooth imaginable. I’ve been eyeing this recipe from last year’s Bake-Off Contest. What’s not to love about dark chocolate, cherries and orange in a pastry?

What’s one Mother’s Day wish you have?
Sleep in. Also, this is only my second Mother’s Day, so I would love to start some sort of memento or tradition that we could do year after year. Maybe it’s a photo we recreate each year, an art project with handprints, or an activity, like a nice long walk after brunch.
