I have had several requests to share our Mother’s Day brunch details on the blog! If you follow me on Snapchat, you know that I have been in the kitchen a lot lately, prepping for Mother’s Day. I am a big lover of holidays, and I think it is important to mark these occasions with a special event. I see holidays as an opportunity to share and celebrate love. There is always a little magic in that.
I hosted the event at our home and was in charge of the carbs! A noble calling of mine. I prepared a simple homemade brown sugar bread the day before the brunch and left it out overnight to allow it to stale a bit. Stale bread makes for the best french toast. In fact, french toast was a dish created to use stale bread instead of wasting it! My mother loves cherries, so I wanted to be sure to incorporate those into the meal. To fit the bill, I made a cherry streusel coffee cake with a milk glaze that was as delicious as it was beautiful. My dad brought two quiches to the brunch, my sister was on the mimosa bar and my brother took care of the fruit. It all came together perfectly, and we had a wonderful time celebrating my mom.
