A California-Inspired Mother’s Day Brunch

If you’re still looking for a way to make mom feel special this weekend, can I offer you a hint?  A little effort goes a long way.  It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture or an over-the-top expensive gift.  Just make it look like you planned something and didn’t scramble last minute for the woman who raised you or is raising your children!
