Treat mom to a homemade brunch
Show your mom how much you appreciate her with a home-cooked brunch this Mother’s Day.
Everyone loves home-cooked food, including your mom! This Mother’s Day, make her a brunch to remember. Here are recipe ideas and tips for making the event extra special.
If momma likes a mimosa, check out this recipe and video for making this morning cocktail. Tip: Start with freshly squeezed orange juice.
The smell of baking Ham and Cheese Croissants with Honey Mustard Glaze will put a smile on mom’s face even before you serve up this melty treat. Plus, it only takes 10 minutes to make!
If you’re going to make pancakes, make them deluxe with stacks like these:
- Blueberry Pancakes with sour cream and lemon zest
- Vanilla Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes
- Bacon Bourbon Apple Pancakes
You say your mom prefers lighter fare? Then try out one of these seven fruit salads. The bionicos (Mexican fruit bowls) are especially tempting with drizzled crema and topped with shredded coconut, raisins and granola.
Serving bacon? Ditch the skillet for the oven-baked method. There’s less mess, and it’s easier when cooking for a crowd. See how it’s done here.
Make mom’s brunch extra special by giving the table setting attention. Use cloth napkins and a tablecloth. Also, include fresh flowers at the table; even a single tulip from the garden will take your brunch from ordinary to extraordinary.
You can also invite those who are “like a mom” (to you or your kids) to join the celebration.
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, and everyone who has a mom!
