Mothers Day Brunch Recipes

Simple, But Elegant Menus

These Mothers Day Recipes are brunch recipes and the time is upon us!

Every year Mothers Day is the busiest day of the year at the restaurant. Not even Valentine's Day is as busy!

And that tells me, our mothers and grandmothers and yes - the wives in families are highly honored and respected and ...loved.

I don't remember where I read this little story but Erma Bombeck, I believe, was the original author.

I didn't write it but I really wanted to share it with you. (Thanks Erma). Recipe ideas will follow.

"A Child's Angel." You will simply call her ...

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

The child asked again, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

"Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking her life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

"You will simply call her, 'Mom.’”

Wow! That says it all and reminds me again about how special my mother (my angel) was in my life.

So what might you do for your Mom (or yourself and your family) if you don't go to a restaurant on Mothers Day?

Mothers Day Recipes

How about a simple Mother's Day Breakfast or Mother's Day Brunch at home? I have some great Mothers Day Recipes for you to try!

If you love to cook, like me, it makes sense to do what you love to do, even on Mother's Day. Cooking and entertaining is what I do. That's why I love my work and the website, and I love these Mothers Day Recipes. You will, too.

Cooking and entertaining is about love and sharing, so actually Mothers Day is the perfect time to entertain - my husband, my sons and their families and friends. Even on Mother's Day, there's no place like home.

Is anything more decadent and indulgent than a brunch? But one of the "rules" I have for Mothers Day and the menu at home is that the food and drink must be easy to prepare and must be items you can mostly make ahead. That way you can spend time with your loved ones outside of the kitchen.

This menu has recipes that comprise a good plan when you're going to feed a crowd. Many of these recipes can be made ahead of time, leaving you to relax and enjoy your company.

Depending on the Mothers Day recipes you choose and the size of your crowd, you may need to adjust the amounts of ingredients.

Check the suggested Mothers Day Recipes below. If you don't like a particular item just mix and match until you find something that suits your taste (and your Mom's).

If you'd rather prepare a late afternoon or evening meal, you can also find Mothers Day recipes for Mother's Day Breakfasts, Lunches and Dinners by clicking on Mothers Day Menu or Special Day Menus.

What You Need To Do To Create The Perfect Mother's Day Brunch?

  • Plan your menu ahead and keep it simple. Choose your Mothers Day Recipes from the suggestions below.
  • Once you have selected your Mothers Day Recipes, do your grocery shopping and pick up some flowers for the table and / or other areas in your home. You can make a beautiful center piece with short-stemmed flowers without forcing people to look over or around them to see each other and carry on a conversation.
  • Do you need to buy a nice Mother's Day card?

The Day before Mother's Day

  • Refrigerate the beverages the night before. Buy sparkling cider and orange juice and / or tomato juice for the kids and for anyone who prefers non-alcoholic drinks or serve them a "Fauxmosa" - Virgin Mimosa (no champagne).
  • Prepare those items from your selected Mothers Day Recipes that can be made ahead


The Morning of Mother's Day

  • Put your Mom's or your own favorite CD on the player.
  • Start with a delicious, but easy, beverage or two. Dazzle your Mom's taste buds, and everyone else who is of age, with a simple (extravagant) glass of champagne, or a Mimosa or a Classic Bloody Mary or how about serving the perfect Mojito!?
  • As an early morning item to accompany your beverage choices, bake off some purchased croissants with lots of butter or try serving some award-winning Bran Muffins or Blueberry Coffee Cake you made the night before or put out a tray of fresh fruit and a few slices of really delicious cheese.
