Host a Honey of a Brunch for Your Favorite Queen Bees
Honor Mom and Mother Earth with a buzzworthy lunch. Whether you're celebrating Mother's Day, Earth Day, or May Day, these honeyed recipes are sure to delight the queen bees in your bubble.
Apricot Nectar Cake I
"This cake is foolproof. I did not have any lemon juice for the glaze, so I used some of the leftover nectar and some lemonade powder. It tasted great." —MOMINMICH2
We used Nordic Ware's 10-cup Honeycomb Pull-Apart Pan. To properly grease intricate pans, use shortening and a pastry brush to ensure full coverage, then dust with flour. Alternately, use a nonstick cooking spray that's specially formulated for baking.
The Bee’s Knees
Serve up a dessert that looks as sweet as it tastes. Fill this Nordic Ware Honeycomb Pull-Apart Pan with cake batter to create 19 perfectly portioned cakelets.
Crispy Chicken Salad with Yummy Honey Mustard Dressing
“I am so in love with this honey mustard! I will never buy prepared honey mustard from the store again.” — misscossio
If you don't have an air fryer, bake for 15 minutes in a 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) oven, turning once.
Lavender Lemonade with Hibiscus
"I used about ¼ cup of fresh lavender from our garden and made the tea with the hibiscus before adding in ¼ cup honey and 1 cup sugar while it was cooling. Beautiful color and fragrance with a wonderful taste. I will definitely do this again." —BARNKITTY
Run With Floral
This muted green and pink floral Field Table Runner is 100 percent cotton and perfect for an outdoor meal — just toss it into the washing machine when you're done.
"BEST GAZPACHO OF LIFE. The recipe is perfect as is - but I added cider vinegar instead of balsamic because that's all I had and I added some fresh dill because I had it on hand. Hats off to the chef for making my day with this recipe." —Carolyn
Orange Honey Butter
Try this sweet butter on biscuits, croissants, or dinner rolls. If you'd like, double and store leftovers in an airtight container; chill up to two weeks or freeze up to two months. To serve, let stand at room temperature until softened.
Tie up a jar of honey, a wooden honey dipper, and a pack of pollinator-loving plant seeds as a party favor or gift for Mom.
