In case you lost track of time, like many of us do this time of year, Mother’s Day is coming up THIS WEEKEND. We love Mother’s Day because with all that our mother’s do – carpool, PTA, laundry, work, cook amazing meals – and every role they play – nurse, therapist, chauffeur, Superwoman – they deserve to have their very own special day to be celebrated and showered with love.

Now if you’re panicking about getting mom the perfect gift, we’ve got just what you need. Nothing says “I love you” quite like making something special with mom in mind, whether that’s a hand-printed card, home-made jewelry or a delicious meal. We’ve got seven honey recipes that prove that with just a few ingredients, a little time and honey, you can make mom feel like the queen bee she is!

Is there anything better than a beautiful spring morning? Blue skies, dew on the plants kissed by the perfect amount of sunshine, a slight breeze that reminds you that while we have survived the winter, it is still not quite summer weather.

One of our favorite spring holidays happens around this time, and this year Easter is at the end of March. Now whether you’re into the Easter egg hunts or sitting down for the Charlie Brown Easter Beagle special, there is one thing that every family enjoys, and that’s good food. From creating a perfectly balanced brunch and roasting the most succulent ham, to serving delectable side dishes and the sweetest desserts, you can do it all with honey!

Not only does honey add a touch of golden sweetness to every dish, but it also helps you to lock in moisture in meats and breads and balances the most complex of flavor combinations.

Below are our favorite Easter recipes that showcase the very diverse range of functions honey performs in the kitchen.

However you celebrate, do it with honey. Happy Easter!

We hope you enjoy these honey recipes from the National Honey Board. Happy Easter!
