Give Mom the Royal Treatment

Will and Kate have had their day, and I enjoyed it as much as anyone else, but what do you say we now move our focus to the queen of our home, Mom?  Sunday is Mother's Day and what better way to wake up your own resident royal than with breakfast in bed?  So maybe this is weird because I'm the mom around here and it may seem a little self-serving, but I've put together a collection of recipes just perfect to make for a Mother's Day breakfast.  I'm not doing it for myself (or as a hint to my husband), really.  I'm doing it because I know some dads want to make breakfast in bed for their spouse but have no idea what to make beyond toast and store-bought orange juice.  Well, I'm here for you, brothers.  The following three posts are super simple but impressive looking breakfast recipes, and all have elements you can make in advance so you're not scrambling so much to get things made before she wakes up.  Here's the rundown of the menu:

Breakfast Trifle, made with strawberries, whipped cream, and waffles.
Sausage Rolls, easy and savory.
Sunrise Slush, a refreshing fancy-schmancy beverage.

Feel free to round out the meal with anything else that tickles your fancy, but even if you just make what I have listed here, Mom is going to have a great start to the day.

  1. Becca! I just found your blog. I had NO idea you were so good at baking/cooking (shows how much I pay attention, I was only your visiting teacher for almost a year :)). I'm excited to try some of your recipes! They look so good. I hope you know how much I appreciate your friendship. I look up to you more then you know, thanks for being a great friend. I'm so glad we are in the same ward still! :)
