Leave It to the Kids

The best gifts you can give Mom can't be picked up at the store. Like macaroni necklaces and finger-painted masterpieces, the most thoughtful gifts are the ones that are homemade. Whether you surprise her with a special lunch or dinner, treat her to her favorite homemade dessert, or whip up a delicious breakfast with the help of the kiddos and these recipes — Mom is sure to appreciate the gift of a made-with-love meal.

Hash Brown, Tomato and Mozzarella Quiche

This clever quiche uses potatoes instead of dough for the crust. For little kids: Let them squeeze the moisture out of the potatoes, measure and mix. For big kids: Let them pat the potatoes into the pie dish, shred the cheese and snip the chives with kitchen shears.
