Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes – A Roundup of Tasty and Inspiring Recipes. Show Mom How Much You Care With Homemade Brunch.
In 1914 Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation that made Mother’s Day a nationally recognized holiday. Since then, Mother’s Day has been celebrated each May, typically on the second Sunday. The idea of an American Mother’s Day came from Anna Jarvis, who, after her mother’s death in 1905, wanted a national holiday that would honor the sacrifices mothers make for their children. Anna’s mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, was a peace activist who offered her aid to all soldiers fighting in the Civil War, regardless of which side they fought on. Early on, Anna was able to organize several small-scale Mother’s Day church celebrations, but she wanted something bigger. After years of penning letters to newspapers and important politicians, President Wilson made her efforts worthwhile.
I may be biased, but I’ve always believed that food is one of the best gifts you can offer to somebody you love, especially when it’s homemade.

In hopes of inspiring all of you, I’ve gathered a few of my very favorite brunch recipes that are sure to leave mom feeling extra special… and maybe even a little impressed!
