Mother’s Day Goodies

mothers-dayMums unite! Your special day is coming up on the 10th of May and, being a Mum too, I know what I want: peace, goodwill … and a really good sleep-in! Looking for a gift for the special Mum, mother-in-law, grandma or next door neighbour in your life?

Give the gift of practicality. Making cooking fun and easy, and minimising washing up is something that will keep Mum happy until NEXT Mother’s Day. Fact is, we have to cook, we might as well love it and be inspired to mix it up a bit!

From $14 upwards, there’s something for every Mum at The Chefs Toolbox! All our como advanced cookware comes beautifully packaged in easy-to-wrap boxes, and even our handy dandy Potato Masher is a huge winner according to everyone who has bought one. How about some Flexishapes to cook up a batch of fluffy, novelty-shaped pancakes for breakfast for Mum on 10th of May?  If Mum’s a shoe lover, you can make them stiletto-shaped with the cute Flexishape, and you get three other shapes too!  Meanwhile, start practising your pancake skills with the recipe below:
