There's an important holiday coming up. Might I suggest making Mom breakfast or brunch?
You could do French toast. Or waffles.
Or Waffled Chocolate-Stuffed French Toast. Would you believe the recipe is in my book? It is, along with several variations in case chocolate is not her thing.
If Mom is not within brunching distance and might like a cookbook, a waffle iron or a cookbook about waffle irons (especially a cookbook about waffle irons), you can probably guess what I will recommend as a gift.
Except in my case. My mom likes cookbooks, waffle irons and cookbooks about waffle irons just fine (especially a certain cookbook about waffle irons). But I'm pretty sure she doesn't need another copy of my book.
Visit your local bookstore! Or find "Will It Waffle?" at ...
