We’ve got spring cooking and baking on the brain this week, and so do the Diamond of California® Culinary Ambassadors! Sally of Sally’s Baking Addiction is stopping in today is share her Mother’s Day menu. Here’s what she’ll be serving:

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to make mom a treat or meal she’ll remember until next year. I recently asked my friends what kind of food they’d love for Mother’s Day and there was an overwhelming amount of chocolate in the responses. I like their thinking!

The following easy recipes are ones the whole family can help make. Whether that’s homemade muffins for breakfast, a colorful berry-packed lunch, tropical chicken for dinner, or lots of chocolate for dessert. Win extra points with these recipes!


Spoil mom with muffins and fresh fruit in bed. These apple cinnamon muffins are something the whole family will love too. Get the recipe here.

Creme de la Crumb Berry Pistachio Spinach Salad 4

Make mom a flavor-packed lunch with gorgeous fresh berries, spinach, Diamond of California® shelled pistachios, and berry vinaigrette dressing. She’ll love it all. Get the recipe here.

Cashew Chicken with Avocados (1)

Mom will swoon over all the flavors in this super simple, yet impressive dinner. There’s so much to love between the quinoa, avocado cashew sauce, and the sweet pineapple salsa. Get the recipe here.


No shortage of chocolate here! Mom’s sweet tooth (and chocolate fix!) will be satisfied with these ridiculously delicious cherry almond chocolate chunk cookies, oatmeal pecan cookies, or these beautiful dark chocolate walnut raspberry cookies.

Ok, now I’m hungry. Get cooking and Happy Mother’s Day!
