Mother's Day Breakfast ~ baked apple pancake, roses and fresh coffee ~ from

I remember when my oldest son was only 11, I was a single Mom and afraid….not sure of so many things, missing my own Mom who had passed away 9 years earlier, and my JR woke me up (along with his then 2-year-old brother) to breakfast in bed.  Eggs (slightly burnt), toast (sorta burnt) and coffee were on a cutting board (the tray).   They made a card for me and came into my room with huge smiles across their faces.  That morning will always be one of my favorite memories as a Mom and to this day makes me smile from ear-to-ear! So, whether you surprise Mom with this recipe or something else, you’ll make her happy.

One more thing to make this breakfast a success ~ don’t forget the coffee! If you know me at all you know I love good coffee.  When I used to drive my oldest son to his first job some mornings I was up at 5:30 a.m. to get him there by 6 o’clock.  Thankfully, across the street from where he worked there was a Dunkin’ Donuts.

Fresh cup of coffee on vintage napking with fresh white roses and vintage cutting board ~ I had my handy dandy refill cup and on those mornings I would always get a refill but now you can find Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee K-Cup® Pods in the coffee aisle at your grocery store ~ woot!  My favorite is the Original Blend but there is also Dunkin’ Decaf, French Vanilla, Hazelnut and Dunkin’ Donuts Bakery Series® Chocolate Glazed Donut flavors.  Me (or my older kids) can just pop a K-Cup pod into our Keurig and it’s ready in no time.  It’s also great to have extra on hand for summer entertaining…they make a mean iced coffee!
