Treat mom to a home-cooked breakfast on Mother's Day. This menu is so divine she'll forget about the kids' undone chores and dad's lingering "honey-do" list. Rich ingredients and indulgent flavors lend an irresistible twist to these scrumptious recipes. Sip on Chocolate Iced Coffee for a luscious start while cheesy Southwest Breakfast Strata bakes to a bubbly finish; both make great brunch items for company too.
