10 Recipes to Serve Mom In Bed

May  9, 2015

What's your favorite way to say "thank you" to your mom? Do you take her to get her nails done, treat her to a massage, or send her flowers? Or, do you take her to her favorite lunch spot, bake her cookies, then offer to do her laundry?

This Sunday, shower your mom with gestures of your appreciation—starting in the morning with a good, old-fashioned breakfast in bed. Serve her whatever she likes best, be it scones, ricotta pancakes with maple syrup, or breakfast tacos, with a heaping mug of coffee or tea, of course. And a spring flower arrangement will get you bonus points. Here are 10 of our favorite Mom-approved recipes—make any or all of them, and she'll be as pleased as punch:

I'm all about savory breakfast. My hands-down favorite is Amanda Stafford's Slow Cooked Tuscan Kale with Pancetta, Breadcrumbs and a Poached Egg. It takes a while to make, but I have convinced my husband to prep the kale, make the breadcrumbs, and sautee the onions the night before to save a little on the Sunday morning time. He would rather have biscuits, or pancakes or puffy German pancakes but on Mother's Day, I get to choose - Yay!
