Recipes and Menus for Mother's Day

Mothers are very special and deserve all of the thanks we can give for the many things they do for us during our lifetimes. My mother is no longer with us, but I still celebrate the day in her honor, serving some of her favorite foods each year. This year, I posted breakfast and dinner menus that are easy and delicious. If Dad and the kids want to surprise Mom, they can easily prepare and serve either meal. The first menu features one of my mother's most often requested breakfast foods, waffles, including two made from scratch versions from which you can choose, regular and whole wheat. In my family, special occasion Sunday meals were always casual and included good, home-style foods and, even on Mother's Day, Mom did most of the cooking. With that in mind, I decided to feature one of my mother's best main dishes for a family gathering, oven-braised beef brisket. Although it takes several hours to cook, it is mostly hands off time and very easy to prepare, as are the sides and delicious strawberry dessert. Additional choices are provided by the links included with each recipe. I hope you and your mother will enjoy.
