Are you ready for the Mother’s Day challenge? If you want to really surprise your Mom this year, make these amazing dishes for her with your electric skillet. One is a Japanese style cheesecake pancake—light, airy and topped with a wicked strawberry sauce that should be considered illegal. The other is tonight’s dinner—a delectable stewed hamburger stuffed with aromatic melty cheese, decorated with a ring of mashed potatoes. Cute? Both are downright awesome for Mother’s Day!
