One of the things that comes to my mind when I think “Mother’s Day” is breakfast in bed. A tradition among many is to give mom the morning off and the kids (attempt to) make an easy breakfast and then proudly bring it to mom so she can relax and enjoy (hopefully) her breakfast in bed. We put together some tasty and healthy recipes that you can make mom in the morning or take to a Mother’s Day brunch. These recipes can be used any morning as well!
