100 Brunch Recipes for Mother's Day on

I think brunch might be one of my favorite things. Eggs, carbs, fresh fruit and maybe even a fun cocktail. It really doesn’t get any better than that. And if brunch is accompanied by sleeping in? Even better. But I wouldn’t know anything about that. Sleeping in to me is 7AM. If my kids sleep until 7AM, I am literally JUMPING FOR JOY.

If this doesn’t make you hungry for brunch, I’m really not sure what will. Enjoy! And happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. I hope you get to sleep past seven.
