5 Mother’s Day Breakfast Recipes

I can’t believe Mother’s Day is this weekend. Last year was a rough, emotional mother’s day with my mom passing away the week before. It has been a tough year to say the least, but being a mom with 3 kids makes everything in life worth it. A good friend of mine tells me often to “Roll with the punches”. This is the best advice I can give to anyone, especially moms. I love the idea of a having a special Mother’s Day breakfast or “breakfast in bed, so heres 5 great looking recipes including my recipe for Blueberry Muffins with Greek Yogurt. Here’s to a terrific Mother’s Day to all of you!

Blueberry Pancakes for Mother’s Day

What a week… I can’t believe that a week ago I buried my mom, and tomorrow it’s Mother’s day. It’s been such a rough week, but I have so many of you to thank for the sweet messages, notes, emails, calls, flowers, comments, lunches, etc. I am trying to pick myself up every day and move forward, and this blog is one great way to push me to do that. I thought I would share a super simple recipe for Blueberry Pancakes for Mother’s Day or any day since my mom always loved Mother’s Day brunches and who doesn’t love pancakes and blueberries?

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful, wonderful, giving moms out there. For those of you who still have a mom, give her a big hug today! All the best, Alison

We love French toast at my house. We make it just about every Sunday. I developed a healthier version, and this recipe is great. It uses maple syrup or agave nectar, egg whites, a touch of cinnamon and whole grain bread to produce an awesome Healthy and Light French Toast. You can also slice the bread into thin sticks to make French toast sticks (kids love this). Enjoy during the week or weekend and on holidays such as Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and Father’s Day.

The combination of rapspberry and almond go so well together, but for those of you who prefer blueberries, feel free to substitute blueberry preserves.
