Looking for a way to spoil the Moms in your life?

Marilu's Market has everything you need to let the Moms in your life know how much you appreciate all they do for you!

Here are some easy kid-friendly ideas to treat Mom to a special Breakfast in Bed.

Easy Tomato Puff Pastry Tart

A perfect savoury breakfast with a touch of class! Here's how to make this easy and delicious treat! The beautiful thing about this easy recipe is that the kids can help prep the food, roll out the pastry and put the toppings on. And, they can help by picking toppings that Mom loves!

Want to make a sweet version? Try some Marscapone cheese spread onto the pastry and add sliced pear and a sprinkle of cinnamon or cardamon or sliced apple with a drizzle of caramel sauce. Yum!

What you'll need:

- frozen puff pastry (yes, we even have Gluten-free options)

- sliced tomatoes

- cheese (we chose Parmesan flakes and Feta)

- fresh herbs (we chose thyme)

For a real breakfast feel, top with a poached egg once it comes out of the oven!

Here's how to make it:

Thaw the puff pastry according to the instructions on package. Some recipes suggest baking the dough partially before topping it. Top it with sliced tomato, cheese, your favourite herbs, a little salt and pepper and bake for 20 - 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.

Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast

Another great recipe that's easy and kid-friendly! So, line up your little helpers and get them working on this!

What you'll need:

- your favourite bread, toasted

- a ripe avocado

- a dash of lemon juice

- salt & pepper

- smoked salmon

- fresh dill

- thinly sliced red onion

Here's how to make it:

Mash a ripe avocado. Add a dash of lemon juice and some salt and pepper to taste. Toast the bread and top with the mashed avocado. Lay a piece of smoked salmon on top and sprinkle with some chopped fresh dill and a few slices of onion.

For an extra touch of class, whip up a quick dab of Dill or Horseradish sauce to top it off. Take a tablespoon of mayonnaise, a drop of lemon juice, a quarter teaspoon of Dijon mustard and some freshly chopped dill or a touch of horseradish. Stir and drop a teaspoon on top of the salmon.

Again, this recipe is SO flexible... on top of avocado instead of the salmon, you could also choose a simple sprinkle of Everything Bagel Seasoning or a few sliced tomatoes and chopped basil leaves.

Looking for something even simpler to make for Mom?

Check out our baking aisle!

We have pancake mixes (regular and gluten free)... just add some berries or sliced fruit on top, a bit of Maple syrup and a sprinkle of icing sugar.

Muffin mixes, frozen breakfast waffles and croissants, or something fresh baked from our Bakery are sure to put a smile on Mom's face!

Looking for something more savoury? Why not pick up a few of Mom's favorite cheese, meats, olives, grapes, figs and more for an amazing Charcuterie board... let the kids slice and prepare the ingredients and arrange them on a board for a simple snack with a big impact!

PS. Don't forget to recruit the kids to do the cleanup!
