Happy Mother's Day everyone! What are you wishing for this Sunday? Breakfast in bed? A family of fabulous eaters? A new slow cooker to make your life easier in the kitchen. A book that answers all your questions about child nutrition and strategies for getting picky eaters to try new foods? Well, we've got you covered! Read on to find out how.

Breakfast in Bed:
The thought of sleeping late while the kids and hubby prepare a breakfast fit for a queen is exactly what we had in mind for this Sunday. You? To guarantee a delightful and delicious breakfast-in-bed experience, we cooked up a brand new recipe for Peanut Butter Crepes with Strawberry Sauce. It's easy enough for kids of all ages to make (supervision required!) and for busy moms to whip up ... even on school days.

Meal Makeover Recipes for Your Family:
Beef & Bean Taco Bundles: Instead of serving tacos in corn tortillas, stuff the mixture into egg roll wraps. Our Beef & Been Taco Bundles are a finger food your kids will clamor to eat. They're made with lean ground beef, black beans, corn kernels, and lots of other good-for-you ingredients.

Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna: You can certainly make this recipe with ground turkey or beef, but we use meat-free crumbles instead. This veggie-filled casserole is perfect for a fast weeknight meal or a group gathering. The recipe is from the new book, Fearless Feeding.

DIY Taco Seasoning Mix and DIY Chocolate Syrup: Save money and packaging with these DIY mixes. We featured them on a recent Cooking with the Moms radio podcast, so be sure to tune in!

We have so much more to share so be sure to check out our blog and podcast, and follow us on Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter!
