Mother’s Day Breakfast Brunch is a wonderful way to celebrate and acknowledge the love and care our mothers give us. Here are 9 ideas for your own menu.
I was honored a few years ago when the good folks at Ascencia asked me to make Mother’s Day for the residents.
Ascencia is a homeless shelter in Glendale, California. They house 40 people, men, women, and children. The residents are waiting for housing. As you can imagine, for mothers, there is a lot of anxiety about caring for their children, finding housing, budgeting, and life in general. Being a mother myself, I really wanted to make this breakfast brunch special for them. Breakfast had to be ready by 6:00 am, which was eye-opening, to say the least. It was a really good Mother’s Day!
I don’t think you have to be female with a child to celebrate the day. Whether you nurture a child or even a plant, you are still taking time to care for it, and you can celebrate the day, too. If nothing else, have a bite!
So if you are celebrating Mother’s Day for a crowd, have a look at these recipes to put on your own menu.

Serve bagels to go with the smoked salmon cream cheese. A basket of warm scones or muffins will bring a smile to everyone’s face.
This salad looks very nice in a clear bowl. Put the fruit on the outside, nicely layered, and the yogurt on the inside. If you cannot find Muesli, use Granola instead.
In keeping with the alcohol-free fare, Virgin Mimosas, made by substituting lemon-lime soda for champagne, will remind you of Orange Julius and make great drinks for the kids.
