Not sure what to order for Mother’s Day? Just because we’re stuck at home doesn’t mean that we can’t make things memorable for the special women in our lives. Here are our top picks of places you can order delicious food from to make the day extra special!
Delicious Food Ideas to Make Mother’s Day Extra Special
Napoleon’s Karaage is one of our favorite go-to meals because they are super easy and convenient to prepare yet taste oh-so-delicious. If you aren’t exactly well-versed in the kitchen but want to surprise your mom by whipping up something delicious, you may want to consider surprising her with Napoleon’s Karaage. Their karaage is so delicious that she won’t have any idea it was so easy to prepare.
Aside from their Original chicken and bangus flavors, which we’ve featured before, Napoleon’s Karaage has also introduced new flavors called Chizu and Sumoki. Chizu is a Japanese term for cheese and would be perfect for any cheese-loving mom.
Sumoki, on the other hand, has a hint of spicy and meat flavors, in case she is a lover of spicy food. It was honestly too hard to decide which one we liked better because we love both cheese and spicy food; so if your mom is the same, we’d recommend getting both. The more, the merrier, right?
Napoleon’s Karaage also has an ongoing Mother’s Day promo where you can surprise your mom with a care package that you and your family can prepare for her! Find out more about the promo here.
Aby Mance only learned how to bake last year during the ECQ period. “I never intended to turn it into a business,” she shares. “I just wanted to learn to bake my family’s favorite desserts.” She first learned how to make brownies with their toaster oven at home and started selling them to some of their neighbors and friends. From there, she got referrals and recommendations and as she slowly learned more about baking, she continued to add more items to the menu. From brownies, Aby’s Homemade now has several cake options, including the stunning Aby’s Special seen above, a Strawberry Fault Line Cheesecake, and a Strawberry Shortcake.
Any of the cakes from Aby’s Homemade would be perfect for Mother’s Day because they aren’t just beautiful to look at, but are also delicious. They aren’t your typical cakes, either. “We make sure our cakes have that wow factor from the look up to the very last bite,” Aby promises. That aside, their cakes are also very affordable and you can look forward to a hassle-free transaction when you order one.
The Pajama Baker
Juno Rosales, a hands-on mother of four, used to fly between Los Angeles and Manila pre-pandemic. When the pandemic hit and she could no longer travel, she decided to channel her creative energy into something else – and The Pajama Baker was born. The Pajama Baker’s flavors are combinations of simple ingredients with an amazing mouthfeel. “I always try to go back to comfort food flavors – nothing too complicated,” Juno shares. “I also only have flavors that my children would love.” In fact, each of her flavors goes through the intense scrutiny of all of her kids, so you know that it’s done right. Kids are always honest about their opinions, after all.
If you’re looking for a smaller cake to give to your mom this Mother’s Day, then check out The Pajama Baker. Perfect for solo eating, gift your mom with a tin of one (or more) of their delicious flavors: Dalgona Coffee, Speculoos, Banana Surprise, Twixt, or Malted Milk. I’ve tried every single flavor (except the Malted Milk) and I keep coming back for more because they are honestly so good and well worth the price! To be honest, their tin cakes can be shared by two to three people, too; but on days when I believe I deserve it, I can easily finish one on my own. Of course, you can also freeze the leftovers for another day, but what’s the fun in that?
Want to give mom a delicious treat she can snack on? Jim’s Recipe has released new delicious flavors that your mom and the entire family are sure to love – even the kids! If you’re already familiar with Jim’s Recipes jiggly cakes, they now have smaller, more bite-sized versions that will make for easier snacking. Available in Pork Floss and Oreo, you can order them in boxes of 1, 2, or 4, depending on how many people are in your family or how many you’d want to surprise your mom with. They’re perfect for merienda or as dessert and are sure to put a smile on your mom’s face.
