All the Professor Layton Games are spectacular. Give those a try.
What games should I put on my moms acekard? She likes game shows (Already got the Wheel Of Fortune game for her) and Puzzle games. She's not dumb and can figure out new games, GIve me some suggestions!
-Cooking Mama 2
Golden Sun DS and Henry Hatsworth. Also Ghostrick: Phantom Detective, Ace Attorney and some platformers - she might like them.
Bookworm, Pac-Man, Mario & Luigi-Bowser Inside Story and Clubhouse Games

I'm surprised the obvious hasn't been mentioned.... Tetris! and Tetris party sexism's finest.
+1 for Professor Layton series.
Also recommend Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright series.
Platformers are also always a safe bet.
If all else fails bring out the Animal Crossing and Nintendogs.
That's not at all sexist.
My mother can't get enough of Brain Age 2 and Doctor Mario.
I second both Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright. That said, perhaps something like Kirby or Mario would be some good platforming action. My mom used to play Super Mario World on the SNES all the time.
Anything by Popcap.
Actually, I'd find games she might like and have her see some trailers or gameplay. That's probably the best way to handle it...
But here are some suggestions anyway.

Thanks for all the suggestions! She's been playing Professor Layton for the past 2 hours!
Bolt Be-Awesome edition.
You know, she might like Radiant Historia. The game is pretty long, but the battles consist of trying to move all of the enemies into the perfect positions via special attacks to kill them quickly. It's kind of like a puzzle, actually.
Resident Evil DS
The Dark Spire
Your mother could try,Sokoban DS.
Here are some games friendly for hardcore and casual players alike:
Plants vs. Zombies (a good towerdefense-like game)
Super Scribblenauts (good game if she's into solving puzzles on pure ingenuity)
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (a must, ...seriously, a must)
Kirby: Squeak Squad (if she likes platformers. I chose this instead of Super Star Ultra as this one is good for those new to the Kirby franchise)
Ghost Trick (a fun game from the creators of Phoenix Wright. You recently died and you must use your ghost powers to investigate how you died. Detective-like.)
Animal Crossing: Wild World (a lot of people like this game so why not?)
Rhythm Heaven (a rhythm game with cute japanese-doodle characters, nice songs and challenging gameplay)
Elite Beat Agents (a really fun rhythm game with popular American songs)
WarioWare: Touched (game which contains many small minigames which are quite funny and quirky, my family loves thisfranchise)
Nintendogs (any version of her own dog breed preference, cute game in which you take care of a puppy)
Super Princess Peach (an exciting platformer in which you play as Princess Peach from the Mario franchise. Plays like Super Mario Bros but with Peach and her special powers)
This. Namely Zuma, Bookworm and Plants VS Zombies. And Tetris. and Clubhouse Games. and Crosswords. and maybe Picross.
my mom currently owns my XL, and she loves these titles. she's already finished Bookworm to completion (100%, dammit i couldn't beat this). she's currently conquering Zuma.
