I love me any kind of baked good, especially on the weekend… and especially for breakfast.

As I was thinking about Mother’s Day and all the recipes my family and I have made in celebration of my mom over the years, I realized something: We always made dessert. And our attempts at baking only worked about half of the time, even though our hearts were in the right place.

While I’m sure we made her breakfast, too, I have no recollection of this. At. All.

So today? Today, I’m talkin’ Mother’s Day breakfast and a pretty darn simple baked good that you can whip up in no time to celebrate your mama.

These Lasagna Bites in Wonton Shells are both, and they’re well-loved in our home because they’re delicious and SO easy to make.

Summer Corn Chowder

Summertime Corn Chowder // Erin Skinner from The Speckled Palate for My Cooking Spot

We got a ton of locally grown corn in our weekly farmer’s box recently, and I was a bit unsure what to do with all the goodness, as we don’t generally eat a lot of corn.

This harvest reminded me just how delicious corn is.

It also reminded me of how incredible food can be on the first meal… or frozen to become a meal for a later time.
