Raspberry Syrup

Raspberry Syrup Recipe // HonestlyYUM


  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a simmer.
  • Remove from heat and let cool completely (approximately 30 minutes).
  • Add the raspberries. I like to combine the raspberries once the syrup has cooled because you get a bright, fresh flavor, rather than a cooked, jammy flavor.
  • Use a potato masher to crush the raspberries to a pulp. If you don’t have a masher you can use a large spoon or the bottom of a glass.
  • Pour the resulting mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the pulp. Store in the refrigerator.
Raspberry Rose Fizz
Call it cliché but my mom is obsessed with roses. Obsessed. I even recently learned that when I was born she demanded there be a bouquet of roses by her side.

Baked Egg Tartlets

Erica and I are totally obsessed with eggs and not so coincidentally so is our mom, who is the most supportive mom any two girls could ask for! So as a small– minuscule– token of my appreciation, I always make sure to include an egg dish in our Mother’s Day brunch tradition. Baking eggs are a great way to entertain for brunch without having to stand over the stove flipping eggs, but you just need to keep a watchful eye on the eggs as they can overcook quickly. Normally, I bake them in ramekins, but for a special occasion like Mother’s Day I like to make them in mini tart shells and add a heart-shaped parmesan crisp!

DIY Dessert Stand

I’ve been wanting to make my own tiered dessert stand for awhile now. However, the risk of potentially cracking perfectly precious vintage plates was seriously limiting my motivation. So after much research and time spent at the hardware store, I’ve found a foolproof way to safely drill holes into porcelain. You’ll need a power drill and perhaps another set of hands but trust me, it’s totally worth it and actually super easy. Plus, they make fabulous gifts for mom!

Mother’s Day With Joy The Baker

Celebrating mom is always a special occasion because, let’s be honest, where would we be without them?! So when our friend and food blogger extraordinaire Joy Wilson of Joy The Baker suggested we join forces on a week long collaboration of Mother’s Day themed recipes, inspired by mom’s favorite colors, we were immediately on board. We all came together with our creations and designed a beautiful table spread inspired by the four inspiration colors: pink, lavender, yellow, and cream. For the next few days, we’ll be sharing recipes and a DIY that is sure to make this year’s brunch utterly delightful and ambrosial!
