Mother's Day is this Sunday -- you didn't forget, did you? -- and that means the clock is ticking. You have just hours to decide how to honor the most important woman in your life.
Breakfast in bed is the traditional start to Mother's Day. So we offer 19 recipes from the Los Angeles Times Test Kitchen that would be perfect for serving up after Mom has had a chance to sleep in. (Trust us. Let her sleep in.)
This recipe collection hits all the marks, with savory as well as sweet dishes, such as a zucchini-basil frittata and classic French toast. We also have recipes that would be great for making ahead (cinnamon rolls!) and those that can be prepared in mere minutes (creamy scrambled eggs) and served along with toasted-and-buttered baguette slices.
You also have another option: Make reservations.
We've put together a dining guide of Los Angeles restaurants serving something special for Mother's Day, such as eggs Benedict with lobster at Craft and Mother's Day "tea at the top" at Wolfgang Puck's WP24, with its stunning, panoramic views of Los Angeles.
And now for gift ideas.
We have you covered. One last thing: Wish Mom a Happy Mother's Day from us!
