For an eternal procrastinator on a budget like myself, there's no better way to celebrate Mother's Day than to serve her a mouthwatering breakfast right out of the oven. For a mom like mine, who's always watching her sweet tooth, I'll make flaky, cheese-tinged scones. If you're a beginner, try this no-fail recipe that's ready in only half an hour. Or, for a fancier breakfast in bed, use the scones in a Southern-inspired breakfast sandwich with black forest ham and honey mustard butter. Both show mom that you love her, so look at the two recipes when you read more.
