This Sunday, in case you didn't know, is Mother's Day, so set your reminders and be sure to call your mom. Better yet, you could send her a heartfelt handmade card. Better still, you could make her a beautiful breakfast - which is what I'll be doing for my mom this weekend to show her how much I care. My mom isn't much of an adventurous eater, especially when it comes to breakfast. She likes things simple with delicious ingredients, so the menu will be specifically suited to her needs. The first thing I'll make for her breakfast tray will be a cool and refreshing fruit salad. The fruit salad will be served on the side in a little silver bowl. This salad has a subtle sweetness from fresh squeezed orange juice and packs a punch with a splash of Grand Marnier. A fruit salad is an ideal dish for a large brunch or an intimate one because you can easily modify the amount of fruit that goes into the salad. For the recipe,
