Mother’s Day Guide: Let’s Cook for Mom This Year


I’m not sure about you, but my mom absolutely loves to cook – and she’s pretty amazing at it too! But just because she loves it, doesn’t mean that she doesn’t also love being served every once in a while…(usually by me, let’s be real)! This year (hello Covid!) we’re all about giving mom the most thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day… a day off from cooking, meal prep, and thinking about what to make. Trust us when we say your mom is sick of it too.

3 Recipes to Treat Mom on her Special Day

People tend to love or hate a bloody mary – and there are so many different mixes/recipes out there. Lucky for me, a bloody mary is one of my moms all-time favorite drinks (especially at brunch)!

By simply blending Not Just Pasta Sauce and sprucing it up with some horseradish, Worcestershire, lemon, and celery salt, you’ve got yourself a simple mix! We like to salt the rim of the glass and garnish with a toothpick of lemon/lime, olives, and maybe even a pepperoncini but you do you! Personalize it with anything that your mom would love.

Shakshuka can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner and comes together super quickly with the help of Not Just Pasta Sauce. Even with few ingredients and few steps, shakshuka is one of those dishes that easily impresses a group…and this time, let’s impress Mom.

When served with a crusty loaf of bread for dipping, its hearty, satisfying, and super pretty when served straight out of the skillet!

These muffins are gluten free AND dairy free but that doesn’t mean that they taste ‘healthy’! The use of Not Just Caramel, canned crushed pineapple (an ingredient my mom always puts in her carrot cake), and mashed banana allows for a super moist and delicious muffin.

Feel free to add dairy and frost them however you’d like, or simply just drizzle them with more Not Just Caramel. Serve one warm to your mom with her morning coffee (before her bloody mary) or after dinner as a dessert..OR BOTH!
