I’m not a fan of tackling the restaurant crowd for Mother’s Day. This year, that’s not even a choice where I live 🙁 For me, the goal is to spend some quality time with my mother, not the kitchen. I prefer a home-based, low key, low fuss celebration with a few easy brunch recipes.
We usually keep it simple with bagels and smoked salmon (lox) or blintzes with berry sauce. And throw in an extra treat or two from one of the recipes below. Don’t forget the flowers!
For 25 years, my mother and I lived in different cities. We are now reunited in Toronto and I am so grateful she’s still around to celebrate at 93.
All these easy brunch recipes for Mother’s Day are vegetarian and can be made ahead in whole or in part. Many take less than 30 minutes to make.
Happy Mother’s Day from Two Kooks to all the moms out there! Wishing you a wonderful day.

This casual, rustic tomato tart with puff pastry is a simple, tasty appetizer for a casual dinner party or a light lunch served with a salad and a glass of wine.
