A Mothers Love
Of all the special joys in life,
The big ones and the small,
A mother's love and tenderness
Is the greatest of them all.

Mothersday a day for appreciating and pampering the one person who dedicates her whole life to her child.There is no better way to treat her than to surprise her with a delicious home cooked breakfast to start her day. 

For mothers day I am making a healthy and delicious smoothie, followed by a strawberry granola pots and a Spanish Frittata.

I was able to create my mothersday recipes with the help of some lovely kitchen tools from OXO. I love the magnetic tin opener with a lining up window so you can line up the blade on the tin. it has a good gripping handle and the magnetic catch holds onto the can lid so that it does fall through into the can.
The three piece bowl and colander set comes with a lid that fits the bowl for storing food. The bowl has non slip surface and its is large enough for cooking for a family of 4. The colander has a lip that allows it to rest in the bowl but lifting it away from the base for easy drainage.The neat lid fits the bowl and all three items are stackable for easy storage.
Lastly the grate and slice is a neat little gadget with 4 colour co ordinated grating discs that shreads, grates, slices and juliennes. It has a good gripping handle with a storage compartment for storing the different blades for additional safety.

I was sent the OXO tools to use in my kitchen to create my recipes.I am sure any mum would love these in her kitchen too.
