I am happy to be a stay at home mother to three little girls and wife to a terrific husband. I enjoy finding ways to express my creativity-- sewing, writing, crafting, photography, or whatever my fancy of the week might be. I also love spending time with my family and strive to make our days together joyful. Check out my blog at Small and Simple

Mother’s Day Brunch

One of my favorite traditions is having my mom and grandma come to my house for a Mother’s Day Brunch. I love it for several reasons: spending time honoring two women who have shaped my life, enjoying the camaraderie of family relationships, the fact that my husband always makes sure the yard looks awesome the day the come….. But if we’re going to be honest, a major bonus for me is the food.

I love breakfast/brunch foods. It’s the only time where you can get away with something oozing carbs and covered in cream cheese frosting and call it a meal. Or, you can load up on the savories– ham, bacon, eggs, sausage– then pair it with a light fruit salad and feel like you’ve still covered most of the basic food groups.

I also love to find new recipes, and have decided to let you in on the ones that look yummiest to me. Of course, I won’t be making all of them this weekend (that would be plain gluttonous), but I do plan on making a few. Take your pick!
