Mother's Day Brunch and Everyday Lunch


Happy Mother's Day! I hope you spend this one laundry free and with plenty of homemade kiddie cards. My gift to you: a Strawberry Breakfast Pizza recipe from the Fruit & Veggie Guru. This is a simple way to wow your mother-in-law or other guests. (Makes 5 servings).

1 package (7 1/2 ounces) refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits)
1 orange
2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
4 teaspoons honey, divided
1 pint basket fresh California strawberries, stemmed and halved
Mint sprigs, for garnish


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stack 2 biscuits; roll out to a circle about 6 inches in diameter, 1/8 inch thick. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Prick all over with fork. Repeat with remaining biscuits to make total of 5 circles. Bake until lightly browned for 6 to 8 minutes. Loosen biscuits and cool slightly.

Meanwhile, finely grate peel from orange. In bowl beat cheese, peel and 2 teaspoons of the honey to blend thoroughly; set aside. Juice orange into another bowl. Add strawberries and the remaining 2 teaspoons of honey; toss. Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees.

Spread biscuits with cheese mixture to within 1/2 inch of edges, dividing equally. Bake just until edges of cheese brown lightly. Top with drained strawberries. Garnish with mint.

And since you're a good mom you probably won't forget about the babes. To get the kids in the act of eating well, I've found a bunch of great feeding accessories at Modern Tots . I love these Fruit & Veggie bibs (2 for $19). The mosaic sippy cup is equally inspired and colorful (who says all kiddie serveware has to be Dora and Spiderman?) $7.50. And don't miss the line of feeding basics from Boon (snack ball, fluid dispenser/sippy cup, and utensils). $5-$6.50
