For Mother’s Day all I have requested is breakfast in bed. Well, breakfast in bed…and no whining, a chicken coop and maybe some new Louboutins (my guess is that I’ll get one of the four, the one that involves a cup of coffee). If you’re looking for ideas for making mom’s morning special or simply want to drop a hint to some less-than-prepared family members, here are some of my tried and true breakfast recipes:
Toast some good, crusty bread, smear with butter and marmalade or jam—simple and delicious.
Making pancakes in the morning is a breeze if you mix and store dry ingredients in a sealed container in your pantry — I often quadruple the recipe. Then, come breakfast time just mix 1 cup of the dry mix with 1 cup buttermilk and 2 eggs. This yields about 10, 4-5″ pancakes with ease.
Princess crepes are our special weekend breakfast treat (and I have it on good authority that princes like them too). To make them extra special, simply melt a handful of chocolate chips and brush into the crepes before rolling
Homemade granola layered with greek yogurt and fresh berries makes a beautiful parfait.
Banana bread, or banana toast is an even easier option that my mom used to make for me when I was little.
Mushroom frittata is an great dish that you can make using only one pan.
Whatever your plans are, if you’re a mom, I hope you feel spoiled all day!
