With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we’ve been thinking about all of the different ways to celebrate the most important women in our lives. From delectable desserts to luxurious brunch, we want you and your mom to have the yummiest Mother’s Day ever. We’ve been inspired by famous movie moms in the past when it comes to crafting the perfect menu, but this time, we’re drawing inspiration from the moms who check in once a week to tug at our heartstrings and provide some extra laughter and wisdom: TV moms. 

Treat your mom to a menu based on her favourite show and the characters in it! 

Gilmore Girls

Perhaps the closest mother-daughter duo to ever be seen on television, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore were inseparable. Their favourite hangout was, of course, Luke’s diner, and we know that there’s nothing better than sitting down to some hearty comfort food and a heart-to-heart with your mama.

The epitome of a wise, warm and intelligent TV mom, Clair Huxtable was unforgettable and revolutionary, as one of TV’s first working mothers. Her striking, elegant and confident nature is still inspiring, and therefore, only the most well-rounded meals would be fit for this queen.

Okay, maybe Peggy Bundy wasn’t the best mother in practice, but her intentions were good! She chose to spend her days on the couch, watching daytime TV and snacking on candies and chocolates, so what better way to celebrate this hilarious and iconic housewife than with some sweets!
