Happy (almost) Mother’s Day!  What better way to show appreciation to the women in our lives than to prepare a special meal. I have provided 3 simple breakfast recipes great for kids in the kitchen to help show their love. These recipes are pretty basic and only require minimal adult support, such as minor chopping and putting the dishes in and out of the oven. They are all customizable so the whole family can enjoy.
