bouchon.jpgMother's Day is coming up and we think it's high time they got a break and are relieved from duty over the hot oven stove. Below are a host of recipes from our gathered from our Food Blog that would make wonderful brunch and dessert entrees for the special occasion.

Start things off with a Perfect Mimosa! Quick, simple and easy. While Mom is sipping and relaxing, put the final touches on any or all of the following:

What's for Breakfast?
Meyer Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
Rabanda Brazillian Style French Toast
Garden Vegetable Frittata
Bacon and Egg Salad
Banana Hazelnut Pancakes
Mexican Souffle

Of course, you may want to treat your Mom to Dessert first! We are sure she won't mind . . .
