Get this Woman a Cinnamon Roll STAT

This mom wants, nay needs, some sweet, sweet R&R. Bring her brunch in bed, complete with these easy cinnamon rolls (No yeast! No kneading! No proofing!), a plate of perfectly-crisped bacon, and a huge mug of strong coffee, and then slowly back out of the room and leave her in peace.

We're Making Crepes, People!

Fire up your nonstick pan, it's time to show your mother some love in the form of chocolate and banana-filled crepes. And since we're feeling French this morning, why not add a carafe of French press coffee to make it extra special?

These Sandos Are Just the Thing

Moms are consistently the busiest people we know, even on Mother's Day, and these ham, egg, and cheese sandwiches on toasty English muffins are perfect for anyone who wants to get on with their day after enjoying a delicious, filling breakfast. Pair it with something fresh, like this bright and healthy pineapple and carrot juice.

This Sounds Like a Job for a Breakfast Casserole

Mom's always got everything you need taken care of and so does this breakfast casserole. Hashbrowns? Check. Eggs? Check. Bacon and cheese? Check and check! Best of all, you can throw this together the night before so you have plenty of time to set a beautiful table, with flowers, a bowl of fruit, and a pitcher of peach bellinis.

Spicy Chorizo Breakfast Burritos

It's Burrito Time!

Spice things up for mom this Mother's Day with these fiery chorizo burritos that get an extra kick from fresh jalapeños. You'll want something super refreshing to cool things down, and Mexican Strawberry Water is just the drink to do it. Complete the meal with a mojito-inspired fruit salad for the table.
