Below is a collection of my brunch-worthiest recipes, just in time for Mother’s Day! The collection starts out very breakfast-y, then starts to feel a little more like dessert as you go along. Why not? We’re celebrating, right?

I’ve organized my Mother’s Day Brunch recipes into the following categories:

  • Scones, Muffins, & Biscuits
  • Cakes
  • Everything Else!
