mother's day tea
Forget the pricey hotel fare and show her how cleverly she raised you.
Serve ready-to-bake scones in savoury flavours like Gorgonzola Rosemary and the picante Chile Cheddar from local company Sister's Secret.
And for her tea, pop a jar of the honey from the resident bees at VanDusen Botanical Garden ($7.95), casually mentioning it's prepared by the garden's apiarists.
If you didn't inherit her culinary skills, at least you inherited her smarts.
