Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas


We’re just back from Charleston and let me tell you…reality is rough. We had a great trip full of relaxation, sun, and great food. Oh the food! More to come on that soon!

It’s hard to believe that Mother’s Day is this weekend. The holiday itself seems a little silly. I mean, just one day to devote to my Mom? My biggest fan? My constant cheerleader? The person who knows all of your traits (good and bad) and loves you anyways? The person who answers your phone calls no matter what. I mean, seriously. My mom answers no matter what she’s doing, unless of course her phone is in the bottom of her purse and she can’t hear it ringing at her. That’s rare, though. She’s always there for me.
Moms and daughters have special relationships, so no matter how you feel about your mom or your daughter, or any special women in your life, I’ve included a list of ideas for some recipes you should make this weekend, no matter how you plan on celebrating!

Spring is here, and now that we are knee deep in April, I’m proclaiming spring to officially be here! So, listen up Mother Nature, and stop with your games!

In typical Maryland fashion, we’ve had a few really nice days, followed by frigid ones, causing me to cover and uncover and then cover and uncover my garden again. I see where this is going…Before long, we’ll likely be catapulted right into Summer with 80’s and 90’s and lots of humidity. I’m staying hopeful that we will still get some Spring-like weather.

I have to say, I’ve had high hopes of Spring being right around the corner. We’ve had a few days here in the 60’s and 70’s and it has been so nice! I love Winter and I enjoy the snow, but even I have to say, I’m over it.

Mother Nature tempted us with some warmer temperatures earlier this week and then yesterday, just like that, we are back in frigid temperatures with wind chills in the teens. I guess we know who is in charge, huh?
