Mother’s Day Recipes + a Giveaway!

Coconut Mango Muffins

Mother’s Day is this weekend! That sure came up quick! In case you need some recipe inspiration, here are a few of my favorites that I think would be perfect for the occasion. Plus, see below for an extra special giveaway 🙂

For brunch:

I love these lightly sweet Coconut Mango Muffins. I often keep them in my freezer for a weekday breakfast or snack. To make them brunch-able, serve with the mini frittatas below:

Mini Tomato Frittatas with Dill

These little Mini Tomato Frittatas with Dill are as cute as they are delicious. I absolutely love the combo of dill and eggs. These little guys are also filled with kale, feta, scallions, and tomatoes.

Blueberry Coconut Baked Oatmeal

This Blueberry Coconut Baked Oatmeal might be my favorite brunch recipe ever. It’s a sweet breakfast that’s filled with so many good-for-you things like oats, almonds, hemp seeds, coconut flakes, strawberries, and bananas.

Shakshuka with Spinach and Harissa

This Shakshuka with Spinach and Harissa is a reader favorite and one of my favorites too. I just love these baked eggs in spicy tomato sauce. Serve with avocado slices and toast for dipping – yum yum!

Cinnamon Sugar Baked French Toast

This one just makes me drool. The Cinnamon Sugar Baked French Toast is a slightly more indulgent sweet breakfast than the baked oatmeal above and it’s a crowd pleaser, because who doesn’t love french toast! I originally made this using pomegranates in the winter, but now that it’s spring, I would use fresh berries instead.

Fennel & Clementine Chopped Salad

Farmers Market Inspired Recipes:

This Fennel & Clementine Chopped Salad is so pretty! It’s a crunchy slaw-like salad that’s tossed with a ginger-miso dressing and topped with clementines, avocado, and fresh mint.

Chickpea Salad Wraps with Avocado Dill Sauce

Chickpea Salad Wraps with Avocado Dill Sauce. If you love tuna salad, but not actual tuna, give these chickpea salad wraps a go! I love to eat these for lunch, but they’d also be a great springy brunch appetizer.

Farmers Market Asparagus Potato Pizza

I’ve never actually had pizza on Mother’s Day, but this super springy Farmers Market Asparagus Potato Pizza is so elegant and fresh with those pretty asparagus ribbons that I’m sure it would be a big hit.

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Dinner for a group:

You can’t go wrong with a big pan of lasagna and this Roasted Vegetable Lasagna will please vegetarians and meat-eaters alike!

Strawberry Coconut Cream Tart

For Dessert:

This Strawberry Coconut Cream Tart has a delectable almond flour crust. This is a lightly sweet, very fresh, grain-free dessert that everyone’s going to love.

  11. Dakota on said:

    omelettes and avocado toast – Plus a bloody mary!

  12. Katie on said:

    Brunch is not brunch without hash brown potatoes cooked prepared with rosemary.

  13. Edward Szczerba on said:

  14. Lisa on said:

  20. Sarah on said:

    It’s a toss up between a Dutch baby (savory or sweet!) and eggs benedict, especially with a crab cake. Nom nom nom.

  21. Michele on said:

    Yum! I always have a hard time picking between sweet & savory when it comes to brunch, so I’d have to say an omelette & some kind of pastry with excellent coffee. 🙂

  22. Sue on said:

    Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal to prepare, and a hearty kale and sausage quiche with a salad of citrus fruits with mint and a little honey are awesome!

  23. Deborah K Haas on said:

    We love breakfast burritos with beans, scrambled eggs, avocado, cheese and sour cream!

  30. Abby on said:

    Any form of breakfast burrito or taco – endless combinations so it never gets boring. Yum!

  34. Ursie on said:

    Fave brunch food is eggs benedict. Basic? Maybe. Don’t care. It’s so good.

  35. Rose on said:

    Bloody Mary, spicy eggs and sausage, fresh hashbrowns…..

  36. MaryB on said:

    Now that is a tough question! First of all, excellent coffee. Then eggs or poached salmon and some good homemade bread.

  37. Patricia Stewart on said:

    I love savory quiches with good Gruyere, mushrooms, spinach and green onions. Also a good hot sauce to go on top of the finished dish!

  38. Emily on said:

    Living in the South, my favorite is a Chicken, Egg, and Bacon Biscuit but for Mother’s Day the tradition in our family is Croque Madame! Also looove the Strawberry Cacao Nib Waffles! Always a go to! Or blackberry muffins using blackberries from the garden! Too hard to choose just one!

  39. Dee on said:

    A good veggie omelet with fresh salad and yummy coffee-cake muffin!

    Avocado toast, scrambled eggs, grits and hashbrowns

  49. Jennifer Martin on said:

    I love Eggs Benedict, but with Salmon instead of the ham.

  50. AMBER on said:

    If we are talking decadent, pamper myself, once or twice a year breakfast/brunch its got to be pastries – lemon poppy seed scones with fresh blueberry jam or pumkin cream cheese muffins with walnuts, or almond crescents, or Belgium waffles covered in strawberries and whipped cream. Who can decide? Can I have it all? After all it’s something I do only once or twice a year. I do know that it MUST come with a cup of hot chocolate – preferably white with raspberries floating in it.

  51. Ann on said:

    Anything with eggs for me!

  52. Allison on said:

    I love eggs for brunch- frittatas or baked eggs or scrambled eggs and toast! This is a wonderful gift basket for a lucky mom. 🙂

  53. Viktoriya Vayner on said:

    My favorite brunch recipe is savory french toast:) which is basically bread dipped into an egg and milk mixture with some salt and pepper, pan fried.
    I also really like an omelet poured on top stir fried tomatoes and onions. Adding sour cream to the omelet mixture makes it very fluffy especially if the lid is left on while cooking.

  54. geraldine Azinheira on said:

    My favorite brunch food is so simple – a nice fruit salad makes me very happy!

  55. Morgan Wood on said:

    Favorite brunch food… probably Potato & Cheddar Waffles, with a dollop of sour cream and chives! Yum!

  56. Marie Lamensch on said:

    Favorite brunch food specifically for my mother would be smoked salmon with an egg benedict and a slice of toasted bread from a good bakery

  57. Lara Marshall on said:

    I love a toasted Everything bagel with a schmear of whipped cream cheese, strips of lox, thin slices of red onion, a spoonful of capers, and freshly cracked black pepper on top. Oh, and of course, a spicy Bloody Mary to go with it! 😉

  58. Beth Colletti from on said:

    Smoked salmon on sourdough bread with chives, sour cream and eggs! (Anything with smoked salmon has me hooked!)

  59. Ashley Jo Harland on said:

    Oh my, so hard to pick just one. Smoked salmon Benedict, pot roast Benedict with caramelized onions, chicken and waffles, or stuffed cherry and cream cheese French toast 😏🙏

  60. Anna Pry on said:

    eggs benendict with avocado and bacon 🙂 yum yum!!

  61. Jason P. from on said:

    Without a doubt, JUMBO artichokes simmered with some tea, served with garlic, vinegar, and sun dried tomatoes!

    • You simmer the artichokes in the tea? What kind? Fascinated 🙂

  62. April Clark on said:

    My all-time favorite brunch recipe is one that my mom has made since I was a kid – Chile Puffed Eggs. A cheesy gooey egg casserole just exploding with flavor, and not at all spicy so even kids love it! I haven’t made it in ages, but now that it’s on my mind, I think that’s what we’ll be having on Sunday! 🙂

  63. Chelsea V on said:

    For savory, a toss-up between shakshuka and veggie eggs benedict with a mustard hollandaise. For sweet brunch, crepes every time.

  64. Annika on said:

    Definitely an omelet made with all kinds of delicious veggies and topped with salsa and avocado. It doesn’t get much better than that.

  69. Bernadette on said:

    Tofu scramble always a hit

  70. Danielle on said:

    My favorite brunch food would have to be pancakes! I’m such a sucker for dough. I also love a good veggie-filled omelette. They balance each other out. 🙂

  71. Kimmy R on said:

    Holy moly what a fab giveaway! The best brunch I ever had was at a local brewery! I had chocolate chip waffles and I also ordered myself a flight of beers. Believe it or not but I am 37 and that was my first experience with beer. I ordered fruity ones and actually enjoyed them. Those waffles tho were absolute perfect. I have a major weakness for anything chocolatey! Thank you so much for the chance to win this fab giveaway. It would totally make my day and I would be so very grateful to win.

  77. Maureen on said:

    I love the spinach leek bacon quiche I have made in the past–my family seems to like it as well. I love to have a bowl of fruit minus strawberries (allergies in the family).

  78. Leah on said:

    I love all things bread so French toast, muffins, coffee cakes, strudels…all the tummy things!

  79. Sarah Fucik on said:

    I lean toward the sweet stuff… french toast and mimosas please!

  80. Meredith on said:

  83. LaDonne Oaldon from on said:

    Eggs Benedict!

  107. Mindy on said:

    Happy Mother’s Day to all our mamas!

  108. Stephanie on said:

    My favorite brunch food is potatoes!! Any kind of potatoes! Just as long as they are sans dairy, I’m good!

  109. Vicki in Birmingham on said:

    Pretty much anything with asparagus works for me…sautéed with brown butter, wrapped and baked with bacon…most any way works too!

  110. Robin on said:

    My favorite brunch item is homemade whole wheat cinnamon rolls made from freshly milled whole wheat with a cup of coffee.

    I am with the avocado toast crowd. Sourdough toast, avocado, poached egg, radishes and coarse ground salt.

  118. Brenna on said:

  153. coral sayer on said:

    savory always with some sort of salad and a pancake or waffle to share, best of both worlds!

  154. Heather from love%20and%20lemons on said:

  155. Mandy Crosby on said:

    I never get tired of a crustless zucchini quiche I made with my son when he was younger. I let him put some dried basil in the mix and he heavy handed it about 3 times the amount the recipe called for. It came out delicious and I’ve made it the same way ever since!!

  156. Brenda Haines on said:

    Eggs Benedict with a west coast spin. Got to through some avocado on there.

  159. Adele on said:

    Banana French Toast

  160. Pam on said:

    Ooo, I love brunch.
    I don’t think there’s a brunch dish I don’t like…it’s difficult to go out for brunch because of all of the options.

    If I’m dining out, I pick things I usually don’t make at home, like eggs benedict.

    At home, my favorite is probably homemade muffins or scones, with a pot of Assam tea. But quiches are a close second place.

  161. Rebecca R on said:

    Eggs Benedict, all day. I’ve had one with prosciutto, arugula and a balsamic glaze that was one of my faves

  162. Andrea on said:

    I love palacsinta or a yeasted bread

  163. Allison on said:

    Red Flannel Hash! Smashed potatoes and roasted beets with horseradish sauce, along with fried eggs and a carrot/arugula salad with lemon mint dressing.

  164. Krispy on said:

    My absolute fav brunch food is breakfast burritos with beans, greens, feta and eggs

  165. Emily Schostack on said:

    Call me old-fashioned, but I love the brunch casserole. This could be strata, a french toast bake, or a pan of jammy, fruity baked oatmeal. Something about that slow bake in the oven is the embodiment of weekend luxury. We have no where to be so we can take our time in the kitchen; something that you never see on a weekday.

  166. Kelly D on said:

    A cheddar omelette is my favorite.

  167. Mary Wahlmeier on said:

    I love a good breakfast burrito for brunch. The best one I’ve had yet was at the Fat Cat in Chicago!

  168. Samantha W on said:

    cant’ go wrong with bacon and french toast (with bottomless mimosas of course!!)

  169. Rita on said:

    So tough! I enjoy making cinnamon rolls to serve to others, but a couple of eggs, crispy bacon, and a pancake make the perfect brunch!

  170. Emmy on said:

    What a fabulous thing to share! My favorite brunch is anything savory in puff pastry, plus fruit to refresh your mouth, and super strong black coffee.

  171. Johanna on said:

    I love Cream Cheese and Lox on a bagel! Maybe a side of scrambled eggs, plus a really strong cup of coffee. And maybe some cookies to follow! Happy Mother’s Day!

  172. Christine on said:

    Favorite brunch food is definitely smoked salmon cream cheese bagel!

  173. Julia on said:

    The omelets from Bouldin Creek Cafe. So good and tons of veggies! I miss them like crazy since moving to Virginia. Also lemon ricotta pancakes. Plus coffee and a mimosa even though they kinda cancel each other out. Man… is it the weekend yet?

    I love eating your double chocolate zucchini muffins for breakfast when I’m craving something sweet. Otherwise, my favorite brunch foods are egg based- breakfast tacos, quiche, avocado toast with an over easy egg on top. I’m drawn out of bed with the inspirational thought of “what will I cook today?” Keep up the amazing work on your blog, Jeanine!

  215. Natasha on said:

    Definitely biscuits and gravy!

  216. Elizabeth Shelly on said:

    A few weeks past my parents held a wine tasting brunch at their place for friends and I. As always, my mum cooked (and cooked, and cooked) lots of delicious things to munch on.

    She made a fantastic mushroom-feta-spinach frittata and (though I don’t partake) her classic pecan topped sticky buns.

    This year for mothers day we’re making brunch Crepes with buckwheat purchased in Québec at a beautiful little creperie. Egg, cheese, and sweet ones, too, of course.

  217. Kelly C on said:

    I love egg white omelettes with a side of crispy bacon!

  221. Sophia S on said:

    My ideal brunch combines sweet and savory! I have such a sweet tooth so I always want some granola, a pancake, or a muffin on the side with something more savory. I like to sauté chopped vegetables and then put eggs right in between them, cover the pan for 5 minutes, and finish with lots of fresh herbs! It creates these wonderful pseudo-poached eggs. I want to try your mango muffin recipe, it looks delicious!

  222. Bobbi Wiehtoff on said:

    I love my husband’s french toast. Mostly because I don’t have to make it!

  229. Jennifer C. on said:

    I love breakfast casserole! Or quiche! Or a frittata! I love breakfast any time of the day!

  230. Kirst on said:

    Best special brunch treat is definitely challah french toast! My favorites though are yogurt with granola and fresh fruit, or a smoothie bowl with granola in the summer. Yummmmm.

  231. Kelly on said:

    My favorite brunch option is a Denver omelet. Such a “simple” food but I can’t resist one if it’s on the menu. Bonus points if it comes with a side salad (arugula, of course) and some homefries!

    My favorite is classic bruschetta + avocado with basil from the garden!

    Omelets – there is a restaurant on the water we like to go to for Sunday Brunch on special occasions where there is many amazing and delicious foods but the omelet station is phenomenal. I ask for one egg at a time so if I’d like a second once can be made a little later with totally different ad ins

  252. Maddie on said:

    I love brunch! It’s hard to choose one favorite, but I’d probably have to say a good omelet.

  274. Nicole from on said:

    French Toast!

  275. Jill Heffron on said:

    My favorite brunch food is a tortilla espanol — also known as a big think omelette with caramelized potatoes and onions. I usually serve it with a green salad with a tangy vinaigrette or a berry salad. I think the next time I will try it with your salad with clementines and mint and watermelon radish. That would be a nice, bright contrast to the earthiness of the tortilla espanol.

  276. Cindy A. on said:

    My favorite is quiche.
