Mother’s Day (May 11): Treat mom to breakfast in bed with the latest bite-size trend – pancake pops!Follow your usual pancake batter recipe (or take the easier boxed route!) and buy 6-inch lollipop sticks. Drop a heaping teaspoon of batter onto your griddle. Wait about a minute for the pancake to settle and place the stick ¾ of the way to the top of the pancake. Use a spoon to smooth the bsmoothieatter over the stick. After a few minutes, the first side should be done; flip it over carefully to cook the other side. Pour your favorite maple syrup and gooey toppings into little cups to dip the pancake pops into! This is a cute treat for a Sunday brunch as well; and kids love making these pops so forward this idea to your husband for your own Mother’s Day morning surprise!


Pick Strawberries Day (May 20): This quirky national observance is on the calendar as a way to celebrate the first fruit of spring. Picking strawberries together at your local farm is a nice way to spend a spring day with your mom, kids, or even your sweetie. Other than popping the sweets in your mouth like candy, try mixing strawberries with spring greens for a healthy salad, or throw them into the blender with vanilla almond milk, ice, and protein powder for a power smoothie.

Added bonus – strawberries are packed with Vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants.
