My Mother made her Mother’s Day requests which include brunch cooked by yours truly. My sister also requested that her husband ask me to cook her brunch! LOL so brunch it is!
I am looking for a little help. I know I’m going to make brocolli and cheese frittatas, french toast casserole, and an apple bacon ricotta tart, but then I just keep staring at grocery list thinking what else? Help me!

A nice fruit plate (You can do a basic fruit plate. Or prusciutto and melon. Or her favorite cheese and fruit.).
Yogurt and homemade granola (or buy plain granola in your bulk foods section and spice it up and/or add nuts, then put it in the oven for a couple minutes to toast it good.).
Quiche is quick, easy and very versatile.
Fresh berries, whipped cream and angel food cake (or homemade biscuits).
If they drink; make a homemade strawberry puree: place it in the bottom of a glass then add champagne. If they don’t drink you can do the same with sparkling cider or gingerale or 7-up. Or make mimosas or shirley temples.
Whole grain waffles with their favorite toppings. Or homemade pancakes.
Homemade biscuits with fresh fruit and honey (or yogurt). Or use the biscuits for them to make leftover sandwhiches of the frittates to take home afterward.
There are so many options!

Oh.. I can’t think right now. If you are having a bunch of savory items maybe some spicy bloody marys would be good.

One of my favorite recipes is baked oatmeal: The measurements in parentheses are the higher calorie, but tastier (IMO) way to make this.
Dry ingredients: 3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (1 cup)
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
2/3 cup canola oil (1 cup melted butter)
1 cup milk
1 cup frozen berries
1 chopped apple
Combine dry ingredients and mix, in a separate bowl mix wet ingredients. Put dry ingredients in square baking dish/pan, pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients.
Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 35-40 min.
I also love my grandmas homemade cinnamon rolls, and I will post the recipe if you’re interested, but it does take about 5 hours to make as it is made from scratch!
