Who’s kidding who, a lazy weekend brunch is 100% the best way to start a weekend! We love to take our time and eat breakfast as a family together, and if you’re in the same boat I’ve rounded up my favourite recipes for you all here!

The kids love helping me in the kitchen on the weekends and I love having them in there, mess and all! The following recipes are made for taking advantage of those amazing weekend mornings and spending time with those you care about. Whether you’re looking for something sweet, something savoury, or a little of both we’ve got you covered.

If you’re really looking to up your brunch game, for Mother’s Day we created the ultimate brunch for our May Fraîche Table. It includes a printable menu, grocery list, workbook and hostess schedules, and a table setting guide. It’s kind of next-level brunching at its best.

Here are some of my fav brunch recipes for you to enjoy with a good cup of coffee – happy weekend my friends!



Zucchini Bread Pancakes

What better way to use up that zucchini from the garden than with these Zucchini Bread Pancakes?  The heart shaped butter is optional of course, but such a sweet way to tell someone you love them. I just used a little heart shaped cookie cutter to make them and kept them cold.

Kale Breakfast Skillet Pie

Nutritious and delicious, this kale breakfast skillet pie looks gorgeous and tastes even better.

Peanut Butter and Jam Chia Pudding

This chia pudding is one of my favs – it’s healthy, you can make it ahead of time, and it reminds me of my childhood!  If you’re not a PB&J kind of person try this Orange Creamsicle version – it’s soooo yummy!  All of them are gluten free and vegan to boot!

Peanut Butter and Jam Chia Pudding: healthy, vegan and gluten free!


Spring Garden Mini Quiches

I love the fact that these are made with phyllo pastry – a bit lighter and not as much fuss! You can use almost any veggie you have in the house (broccoli, red pepper etc).
