Casual Brunch for Mom

A brunch that you've cooked yourself is a lovely way to honor Mom on her special day. This simple menu, perfect for a casual gathering, includes a decadent French toast made with lemon curd and topped with a compote made from the first strawberries of the season. Apple and sausage patties add a savory note to the meal, and meringue cookies sandwiching chocolate ganache make a perfectly sweet ending to the meal.
