If you are looking for a gift for MOM, here are a few suggestions.
If you live in Southern CA., Book tickets to take her to the flower fields of Carlsbad, I went this past week and it was truly amazing.
Buy her a beautiful Blue Hydrangea Lux Candle, this is my favorite candle and it smells so good, it will burn for hours upon hours.
Sometimes you can’t be with mom in person, but you can gift her a zoom class with you to learn how to arrange fresh flowers, the flowers will be delivered to your door the day before class.
If your mom loves to garden, this is my favorite gardening bucket ever, it is flexible and so easy to move around with, you wont catch me in the garden without this.
Or maybe this darling basket for mom to collect her flowers in.
And what about Coffee and fresh homemade Beignets for breakfast, this recipe is amazing and mom is sure to love them.
We made them for Easter and they were divine.
1.In a medium-size bowl, add the warm water, sugar, and yeast and whisk well to combine. Set aside for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture has bubbled up and become foamy.
2.In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the eggs until smooth. Beat in the vanilla and evaporated milk. Beat in 3 and 1/2 cups of the flour until smooth. Turn the mixer to low speed and slowly pour in the yeast mixture, be very careful and add very slowly; beat until smooth.
3.Add in the butter and beat until incorporated. Finally, beat in the remaining 3 and 1/2 cups of flour and salt. Beat until dough is smooth, about 2 minutes. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours, or up to 24 hours.
4.Line a large rimmed baking sheet with three layers of paper towels set aside.
5.In a large enameled cast-iron pan, heat 4-inches of oil to 360 degrees (F). Remove the dough from the refrigerator. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut the dough into 2 and 1/2-inch squares
6.In batches, fry the dough until they puff up and are golden brown, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beignets to the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough.
7.Dust with powdered sugar and serve at once!
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.
