Happy Friday Friends!

This year seems to be accelerating, doesn’t it? We are already a week into May!

But you don’t need me to remind you how fast time flies, today we are talking about Mother’s day.

I have compiled 4 brunch menus for you to make or suggest to someone else (hint-hint), and a brand new recipe for Fried Ice Cream, no reason we can’t enjoy that all spring and summer long.

Plus a super easy DIY Strawberry Lip Scrub, a great last minute gift!

No kids around? Make something for yourself! You do not need to be a mom to enjoy these recipes!

Brunch Menu #1

4 images for mother's day brunch, l-R mock eggs benedict, tropical fruit salad, chai tea latte, orange scones.

Bring mom all the great flavors of spring with this simple and delicious breakfast menu:

  • Mock Eggs Benedict Casserole | Don’t knock it until you tried it, everyone, and I mean everyone that I make this for, asks for the recipe!
  • Tropical Fruit Salad is probably one of my favorite, light fruit salads, bursting with mango flavor!
  • Chai Tea Latte | while traditionally thought of in the fall, this warm, delicious spiced tea is perfect anytime of year, tastes great iced too!
  • Fresh Orange Scones are bursting with real orange zest and juice, in a lightly sweetened scone. Pair with a little clotted cream (or whipped cream) and this luscious lemon curd and you are golden!

Brunch Menu # 2

Hearty, scrumptious, fresh and delicious! This menu would make my day!

Mother's day brunch menu ideas L-R Prosciutto and Gruyere Quiche, Homemade Yogurt and parfait, golden milk tea, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble.

Brunch Menu #3

Mother's Day Brunch menu ideas with chile relleno casserole, strawberry rhubarb salad, Strawberry Gin Cocktail and Double Crumb Coffee Cake.

This menu is great for later meals, since the chile relleno casserole is on the heartier side.

Brunch Menu #4

Mother's day brunch menu #4 with blackberry chicken salad, strawberry shortcake, passion tea and gooey cinnamon rolls.

All of these all natural and vibrant colors just make me smile and want to dig in!
