You probably think that your mother deserves a mansion with an in-ground pool overlooking the ocean. But when you are pressed for time (and also don't have billions of dollars), last minute Mother’s Day brunch ideas will have to do. That does not mean these delicious recipes are not as valuable, though. In fact, for most mothers and stepmothers, a cozy homemade brunch means the world.  

Of course, you cannot forget about the other mother figures in your life. This might include aunts, grandmothers, or family friends. Even older sisters, cousins, and mentors may double as a mother figure. All of these amazing women deserve recognition for their care and love on this May holiday.

So, whether you are celebrating one woman or five, you cannot go wrong with these delicious recipes. Complete the day with a touching handwritten Mother’s Day card. You can always include Mother’s Day quotes, but do not hesitate to include inside jokes and personal memories. That is what really pull at her heartstrings and make her feel special.

The best part? Making brunch at home means that you will not have to deal with reservations, crowds, and long lines. This way, you can save your energy for a shopping spree, hike, or trip to the movies — whatever makes your mama happy.
