Welcome to my Recipe Section.  All of the recipes here have been tested in my kitchen and have received HRH Mommy’s “Seal of Approval”.

You can either explore the recipes by category (just scroll over the “Recipe” tab above and a drop down menu will appear).  Or, you can check out the Recipe Index, where all recipes are listed are together.

Finally, if you have any recipes you would like to share, I would love to put them to the test in our “test kitchen”.  The success stories will be featured here, on “M for Mommy”.  Like “M for Mommy” on Facebook, and either drop me an email with the recipe, or if the recipe exists online, post the link on my Facebook page.

Have fun browsing around, have more fun trying them out and have the most fun enjoying the result.
