Hard to believe that Mother's Day is just around the corner.  I don't think I truly valued the meaning of Mother's Day until I was a mother myself.  Moms obviously deserve more than one day in honor of the blood, sweat, love and tears they pour into the lives of their families and most people do honor their mom every day.  But on that ONE day that we all celebrate our moms we must make it so special.

I adore this old picture of my mom and I when I was just brand new.  The smile on her face is the same smile I see when she takes care of my kids.  My mom is the best mother and grandmother a family could ever ask for.  So caring and devoted to her family.  She isn't all about the fuss and absolutely hates when the spotlight is on her...sorry mom!  For Mother's Day we often go to dinner so she doesn't have to cook, but maybe we need to change up our traditions a bit?  My mom and I both LOVE breakfast foods; they're our favorite.  Instead of heading out for dinner, how about creating a few yummy but super easy brunch recipes that would be perfect for any Mother's Day celebration?

French toast is always a staple when it comes to brunch, but for this special event I felt like getting a little creative and sweetened up our recipe a little bit.  Instead of French bread I used pound cake!  Yes, pound cake and you know what?  I might never enjoy French toast any other way.

6.  Each side should cook for at least 4 minutes or until golden brown.  

7.  Serve warm and topped with whipped cream and strawberries.  In my opinion, no syrup is needed!

This recipe makes a good amount of French toast and it does reheat pretty well so it really is a great brunch recipe that would feed a crowd.  Moms shouldn't be slaving away in the kitchen on Mother's Day so it is important to find great recipes that can either be reheated, prepared ahead of time, or are super easy to prepare on the day of the celebration.  

Since I found a great sweet brunch recipe I knew I needed to focus at least one recipe on eggs.  Eggs are also a staple at brunch.  Again, I needed a recipe that was easy and something I could prepare ahead of the celebration.

These protein packed egg frittatas are simply amazing.  The recipe I am sharing is the base that we like to use but it can be switched up with some extra veggies, different cheeses or other meat options.

11.  Eat warm or store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated until ready to enjoy.  These should last for up to 5 days.  Reheat when ready to serve.
