Mothers Day Brunch Recipes

Run Fast Eat Slow Inspired Menu to Celebrate Mom!!

By Elyse Kopecky 

No gift beats the gift of a big spread of delicious homemade breakfast foods on Mothers Day. Especially if that special momma loves to run! Send her out on a long, slow Sunday morning run and have her return to a hot brunch made with love by the kids (with a little help from Dad).

Below are a few of my favorite brunch recipes that I’m hoping to come home to on Mothers Day (hint, hint!).
