Rudyard Kipling had rightly quoted – “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers ”
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there.

My Ma has been my greatest teacher. She taught me how to be compassionate, how to love and most importantly, how to give without expecting anything in return. The older I get, the more appreciative I become of the person, who brought me into this world.

I spent 21 years with my Ma and I got married at the age of 21 and found another Mom – My Mother-in-Law. I wish her a very happy mother’s day to her too for raising a son (ho plays the role of a father, husband, and son – so perfectly.

I started myyellowapron close to a year and a few months ago. I always see, my foodie friends doing round-up and it crossed my mind many-a-times do one for my blog as well, but I kept pushing the idea. Now that Mother’s Day is right around the corner, I wanted to do my very first round-up and dedicate this post to not only my mom but also every mom out there.

Thank you all the amazing food bloggers for your wonderful contributions. You all made this post extra-special.

There are more than 25 recipes including – Savory, Sweets, Cocktails and Mocktails. Enjoy!

A fusion between angie-olio pasta and meatball pasta is this beetballs pasta. Instead of meat, I used beetroots along with lentils to make the balls.

Served with beetballs, this pasta was not just delicious but was also simple to make.
