Mother's Day: Ten Last-Minute Gifts From Cheesecake to Bacon Mojo Donuts

If there's anyone you're indebted to (besides Sallie Mae), it's the woman who brought you into this world - the naked, gasping, screaming little seven-pound thing you once were. And birthing was the easy part. After that came the terrible twos, the schoolyard fights, puberty.

Mother's Day is payback time. Instead of scoring her some cheesy flowers or a musical Hallmark card, surprise her with a thoughtful, locally-made edible goodie. We've rounded up a selection of products from local purveyors - one of which is sure to make your mom happy she endured pregnancy-induced heartburn and 3 a.m. karate kicks for nine months to give you life.
