Happy Mother's Day!

FoodPair is here to give you an important reminder: Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8th. Don't forget to order those flowers, gifts and cards!

Since we know you'd like to celebrate Mother's Day with food, we've collected a bunch of great recipes from the moms and grandmoms of the world. But, don't limit yourself to these. No mom can resist breakfast in bed, so check out these searches for breakfast egg dishes or pancakes and french toast. Serve it with some fresh squeezed juice, coffee and perhaps a mimosa and she'll be dancing in the streets (while you clean the dishes, of course)!

Mothers are an amazing source of culinary heritage, so make sure to pay attention to what your mom has been cooking. For some reason, mom's meatballs and roast chicken always taste better than they do at restaurants. Mom has some tricks up her sleeve!

To help you celebrate the mothers of the world, we fired up the FoodPair search engine and found a handful of delicious dishes from across the Web.
