Celebrate Mother’s Day with coop@home (and Easy with Yzzy)

When Yzzy decided to bake a surprise for mother’s day, she enrolled the help of family friend Zoe and ordered all of her ingredients through coop@home. After picking out the ingredients online and chosing a time for the order to be delivered, Yzzy and Zoe went on to bake delicious rainbow cookies (recipe under the video).

The coop@home website is in English and the ingredients are divided in easy categories to chose from making placing an order pretty much child’s play. There are several online payment options, making the shopping experience very straightforward.

A handwritten card, homemade cookies and a beautiful bunch of flowers was all this mum could ask for!
