5 Ways To Bond With Your Teenager (Really!)

5 Ways To Bond With Your Teenager (Really!)

Bonding with teenage girls. You guys, it’s as hard as everyone told me it was going to be and then some. I don’t know what it is about the mother-daughter relationship that makes it so difficult sometimes to see eye-to-eye, but I genuinely do believe […]

Mother’s Day Breakfast In Bed Easy Enough For Kids (And Dads)

Mother’s Day Breakfast In Bed Easy Enough For Kids (And Dads)

Sorry, dads. We know you’re just as good in the kitchen as any of us. It was a cheap shot.

Mother’s Day is creeping up fast (isn’t everything?). And I know way too many moms who are always involved in their own Mother’s Day plans, cooking, and shopping because our partners are busy, too, and kids can’t do it themselves. But, let’s face it. It’s not really the Mother’s Day we hope for when we’re cooking or doing the dishes. So, I’m just going to write this post and if you just so happen to leave this screen open where your partner and/or kids can see it, so be it.

Mother’s Day brunch doesn’t have to be something out of a Martha Stewart magazine. Seriously. Most of us are just happy to have a meal made for us and not be responsible for the clean up. Really, anything you do for mom IS nice and very much appreciated. That being said, if it’s more than a bowl of Cheerios, even better!

So here are some really easy breakfast in bed ideas that our significant others and older kids can handle and help the younger kids with.

 

Bacon & Egg Cups

These are ridiculously simple and can be prepped the night before. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray, line each cup with a few slices of turkey bacon, crack an egg in the cup, add a dash of salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate if making the night before. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350, bake for 20 minutes uncovered. Serve with some toast and fruit.

Avocado Toast

There are seriously so many ways to do awesome avocado toasts and all of them are great, look super fancy, and require minimal effort. Basically, just mash 2 avocados in a bowl, adding salt, pepper, garlic, a dash of lemon juice, and any of your other favorite spices. Then top with whatever your heart desires.

 

Yogurt Parfaits

All you need is some yogurt, granola, berries, and the ability to layer. Put it in a clear glass or serving bowl to make it look even better.

Same goes for:

Fruit bowls

There’s no way to make a bad fruit bowl, really. Just use a fancy glass (even a martini or wine glass) and top with some organic whipped cream or yogurt.

And let’s discuss the happiest part of the whole meal: the beverage.

Mimosas

They are the easiest mixed drink on the pddsddlanet and also perfect for breakfast, so you’re in luck.

Orange juice, a splash of champagne, and a piece of fruit for garnish and you’re done.

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. Here’s to the breakfast in bed of champions that you deserve.

How All Those Beautiful People At The Met Gala Got Ready

Look, I’m not gonna lie. I don’t even know what the Met Gala actually is. All I know is that every year, there is a pretty great red carpet filled of spectacular and spectacularly bad fashion choices. And I’m addicted. But if you’re an Instagram […]
