If Mom has so much grace she can balance a plate of pancakes with maple syrup in bed, you should undoubtedly flip some of Trisha Yearwood’s blueberry pancakes. Whether from a box or made totally from scratch, a short stack is sure to start Mom’s day off right. Or, let the kids dip thick slices of brioche or challah in a sweet egg mixture for the Perfect French Toast.
For a real show stopping treat, Ree Drummond’s cinnamon rolls are a labor of love. Though baking the rolls is likely a big-kid task, your littlest ones can help drizzle maple icing over the rolls fresh from the oven before handing ‘em over to Mom.
Let the kids help handle the store-bought pie crust and mix the filling for Giada’s Breakfast Tart with Pancetta and Green Onions. Giada thinks of it as an omelet on hot buttered toast — only better.
Balance Mom’s in-bed menu with Ina’s Fruit Salad with Limoncello. It marries an everyday fruit plate of berries and banana slices with a dose of elegance.
After you adult members of Mom’s family pour her a Lazy Sunday Mimosa, it’ll be clearer than ever that the day’s all about her.
