9 delicious recipes to help you plan your Mother's Day brunch menu. In this post, you'll find our favorite sparkling rosé mimosas, a tropical smoothie recipe, and recipes for scones, salad, quiche and some sweets and chocolate of course! Each perfect for your Mother's Day celebration.
It's another fantastic reason to celebrate and we have a round-up of our favorite recipes for you. This Mother's Day certainly feels different from others that we've celebrated. We miss our moms and can't get together with our extended families, but there is still so much to celebrate.
So here's a post dedicated to all moms. Moms on the front lines taking care of others. The moms who have grown kiddos and the moms with newborn babies. To all of those women who hope to become moms and to all puppy dog or kitty cat moms. Let's celebrate moms this weekend!
In this post, I'm sharing 9 of my favorite recipes from the blog for your Mother's Day Celebrations. You'll find some recipes that are quick and easy to make - and then you'll find recipe ideas that are a bit more complicated, but all of the recipes are delicious. In general, I am the main person cooking in my house (sound familiar?!?). In an effort to have a relaxing day on Sunday, I've added some make ahead tips for each recipe when possible. I'm definitely planning to prep a batch of scones on Saturday and then bake them fresh on Sunday morning. I'll talk you through how to do the same.
Here's What You Need to Do:
- choose the recipes you would like to make
- make your grocery list
- decide what you can prepare ahead of time so that your Sunday can be easy and relaxing
9 Delicious Mother's Day Recipes to Make This Weekend
Drinks and Cocktails:
Tropical Green Smoothie - healthy and gluten free, perfect for the mom who likes a healthy start to the day - smoothies can easily be made a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator
Ginger Grapefruit Mimosa - an all around amazing cocktail and it's pink! You can mix up your simple syrup and juice your grapefruit ahead of time - store ingredients in the refrigerator until Sunday morning
Coconut Mango Scones with Lime Glaze - you'll love this tropical scone recipe - make the dough any day this week, freeze on a sheet pan, and transfer to a large freezer bag. I like to label the bag with the recipe name, baking instructions and the date. On Sunday morning, just preheat your oven, bake the scones directly from the freezer and enjoy. You will have to add an extra minute or two of baking time.
Banana Macadamia Nut Pancakes - These pancakes are light and fluffy and filled with sweet banana slices and crunchy, salty Mac nuts from Hawaii. You can easily whip up this pancake batter on Saturday and then make the pancakes Sunday morning.
Lemon Chocolate Chip Muffins - These muffins are so lemony! If you love citrus, you will LOVE these. Tons of fresh lemon zest and juice in the muffin and topped with a lemon glaze! Make the batter on Saturday, store overnight in the refrigerator and bake on Sunday morning.
Quiche and Salad:
Spinach and Bacon Quiche - The perfect savory dish for your breakfast or brunch...bacon, spinach and tons of cheese. Honestly, you can bake this quiche on Saturday and then toss it into the refrigerator. On Sunday, cover the quiche with aluminum foil and reheat for 15-20 minutes at 350°.
Strawberry Salad with Maple and Thyme Vinaigrette - You'll love this salad of fresh arugula, toasted almonds, feta cheese and a sweet and savory homemade vinaigrette. You can wash and slice your strawberries, toast your almonds and make the vinaigrette on Saturday. Pull everything from the refrigerator and your salad will be ready to go in less than 5 minutes on Sunday!
Brown Butter Milk Chocolate Chip Blondies - Nutty brown butter, chunks of milk chocolate...yum! The best part? You can make this recipe in ONE BOWL! I recommend making the brown butter on Saturday. Store it in the refrigerator and then warm it up for 20-30 seconds in the microwave on Sunday before you bake the blondies. If the brown butter is pre-made, you can have these blondies into the oven in less than 10 minutes.
Orange Almond Madeleines - Tons of citrus and a subtle almond flavor - these madeleines are actually BETTER if you store the batter for 12-24 hours in the refrigerator - make the batter on Saturday and bake the madeleines on Sunday!
I hope that you have a beautiful Mother's Day filled with handmade cards and lots of love!
