Mother's Day Ideas from Brunch in Bed to Gifts and Recipes

Carrie Morey’s Mother’s Day Recipe & Gift Guide:

    Our founders guide to approachable, kid and dad-friendly recipes and breakfast in bed kits for the perfect Mother’s Day morning!

I like to keep things simple for Mother’s Day - I love to sleep in a little and read. My daughters are so good about bringing me brunch in bed! First thing first, they always make an entire pot of dark roast French press coffee (Callie's Biscuit Blend, of course). Then they bring in my favorite creamy, Carolina grits with pimento cheese, soft scrambled eggs, and bacon. The ret of the morning is slow and steady. We usually go out on the boat if the weather is great.

I love Mother's Day because it is one of the only days of the year that there is just no pressure to rush and get things done! This is the best kind of gift that I could ask for, relaxing with my family and doing my favorite activities.

If the mother you are celebrating is anything like me, she will love to join you in the kitchen to make the Southern Fried Green Tomatoes dish.

Sunday Brunch at my mother's has always been a cherished tradition and these Cinnamon Stickies are one of my mother’s many specialties and an essential element to our spread.

Crab cakes are one of mine and my father's favorite meals - I love to elevate the dish with smoked tomatoes! Have you ever tried smoking them on the grill? It's easier than it seems. This Smoked Tomato Remoulade with Crab Cakes recipe is packed with my favorite things, and it is so easy to make!
