These mouthwatering Mother's Day breakfast recipes will make any mom feel like a queen! Bring Mom breakfast in bed with these easy recipes and you will make her Mother's Day the best ever!
It's hard for me to update this post as I lost my mom at the beginning of 2020. It's still hard to believe she is gone. I'm so grateful I was able to spend a lot of time with her before she passed. Treasure the moments, friends, and do something special for Mom on her special day.
When Is Mother's Day?
Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May in the United States. The holiday was started by Anna Jarvis after her mother had said she wished there was a holiday honoring mothers for all they do.
After her mom passed, Jarvis decided to lead a movement to establish the official National holiday. The first official Mother's Day celebration took place in West Virginia in 1908.
My own mom celebrated her May 11 birthday on Mother's Day every five or six years as it fell on that Sunday. Even when the two weren't on the same day, that Sunday would be when everyone would get together. My mom loved celebrations!
And that is what Mother's Day is meant to do. Put a smile on Mom's face. Don't let her do any work - that means no laundry, no cooking, and no cleaning. I think having a break from all that is the best Mother's Day gift!
This list is perfect to refer to for birthdays, anniversaries, or anytime you want to make a really special recipe. Just remember the one rule: Moms aren't allowed in the kitchen on their special day! Deal?
Moms- give these recipes to the kids or your husband and let them know what you want. Let me know your favorite!

I do love getting a Mother's Day card, especially the ones with heartfelt sweet messages scribbled inside. And a bouquet of flowers is always nice!
For an over-the-top gift for the mom who loves to cook, you absolutely can't go wrong with a KitchenAid Mixer. You may have heard never to get Mom a kitchen appliance for Mother's Day. That just means don't get her a can opener! Trust me when I tell you she will LOVE that mixer!
