I love my Mama.
The older I get… the more I love my mama.
The farther away I get from being a bratty, insufferable and ungrateful teenager… the more I appreciate my mama.
Phew… I didn’t make it easy on her. Can I make up for those obnoxious years with brunch? I’m pretty sure it can’t hurt.
The key to making mama a Mother’s Day brunch is this: make brunch aaaaaaaand do the dishes. Sure, mama’s like brunch, but I think what they like even more than the food is seeing us kids clean up the kitchen after ourselves. It’s key. It’s shows our dear mama’s that they raised us right… cause they did.
Make brunch. I totally think you should.
You might start off with this super clever quiche.
I’ve even got a crustless quiche recipe for you. Now you really have no excuse not to make breakfast.
Salad at brunch. Mom’s like salad… it’s kinda their thing. Trust me on this one.
A homemade Caesar Salad? Kinda mind blowing delicious.
Let’s keep dessert light and delicious. I love Blackberry Granita with lightly whipped cream. It feels dainty and delicate and is still super simple and delicious.
I think mama’s like it too.
Just don’t forget about the dishes. It’s important. Just think about how many bottles and diapers our moms washed for us. Yea… so no complaining.
Joy, what is the drink in the first picture?
Joy! I love, love, love the new banner!
I hope the mother’s day brunch is off the hook tomorrow! I will not be making brunch for my mother but instead I will be taking her out for dinner. Easy, peasy!

Yum, I love quiche. Do keep the crust. The more carbohydrates the better!
Too bad neither me or my mum have time for a real brunch this Sunday. But your entire menu is going in my to do-files :) I think it would be rather brilliant for her breakfast :)

I definitely love my mom more the older I get, and started making her breakfast in bed (runny scrambled eggs and burnt toast) at the ripe old age of 6. At 16 I might have put some Ex-lax in the chocolate chip cookies (I plead the 5th on the grounds of hormones here), so I’m still doing penance at 50!

This is a beautiful brunch, Joy! One that any mom is sure to enjoy. I wish I could make it for my mom, but she lives 3000 miles away at the moment! Oh well, I’ll tuck these ideas into my pocket for later.
Adore the cute, colorful, carefree new banner…but everything you do is the “bees knees” including the brunch menu, right on target for Mom’s Day, thank you!

Not sure when it happened, but the new banner is adorable.
What a lovely brunch menu!!! I would be thrilled to have it! My two middle children made me breakfast this morning to celebrate Mother’s Day (they got confused and though it was today!) I got to have what we call, (I don’t know why) Puppy Chow, which is basically cereal mixed with chocolate and powdered sugar and sliced banana’s with dabs of chocolate on top. They hid the dishes under the stack of other dirty dishes…but hey, at least I didn’t see them! :) I wonder what I’ll get for my 2nd celebration!! :) ~Chris Ann (Hopefully the dishes done!)
