Mother’s Day is around the corner and we have the Top 10 Mother’s Day Recipes To Wow Mom.

By mom, I mean your own mother, a step-mom or someone who is mother to furry kids. I believe cat moms or doggie moms deserve to be to honored too. I also believe:

Cooking is love made visible.

According to a study by Finlandia Cheese which tracked the “most loved” recipes of thousands of American moms who visited their website — both Butter Poached Shrimp (savory) and Toasted Chocolate Banana Croissants (sweet) top the list of what moms most want to be served for Mother’s Day 2016.

Scroll down for the savory and sweet recipes.

This is kind of personal. You see, my parents were born in Finland and while I’m a Canadian living in the U.S., I’m proud to have dual citizenship (Canadian and Finnish). There aren’t a lot of Finns in the world so whenever there is a reason to show off something fabulous and Finnish, I do. Finns are weird and wonderful. It’s not in their DNA to brag. It’s considered impolite, but slowly they’re waking up and smelling the coffee (I’m salivating at the thought of my favorite Finnish coffee).

Goodness is measured by seven criteria including quality of life. Organic, healthy and natural is expected in an eco-friendly country of abundant natural resources.

Finns make some of the best products in the world, have world renowned art & culture design, architecture, music, the #1 best education system in the world and some of the best dairy products like Finlandia cheese and Finlandia butter.

The first time I tasted Finnish dairy products as a teen visiting Finland, it blew my mind. Who knew butter could taste so sweet?

Everything tasted so fresh and different, it sparked my interest in cooking and I’ve been a passionate foodie since. The only problem was Finnish foods weren’t widely exported or available. Luckily, one of my fave Finnish brands, Finlandia is now available at a store near you. Spread the love with your mom and pick your favorite recipe or two.

      Chocolate is not safe for cats and especially toxic for dogs. Some cats love bananas. Cats aren’t able to detect sweet (no receptors on the tongue) and when we think they enjoy sweet, it’s usually the dairy or fat component.

    Oh my was this familiar to me today!!:Did I tell you before that I am half Finnish? My mother’s grandparents came from there, and my parents grew up in northern MN where many Finns settled upon coming to this country. My grandfather’s name was Einar Listemaa- my Mother, one sibling and a splatter of nieces and nephews are the only Listemaas in the US. I have no idea if there are any in Finland still that go by that name, I do have distant cousins who live there. I have fond memories of growing up and getting care packages of baked goods sent by my grandmother Helen, including a Finnish sweet bread she always called ‘biscuit’ that was made of a sweet dough and cardamom. Everyday no matter what- everything stopped at 10 am and 4 pm for ‘coffee and biscuit’!
