Mothers Day Brunch with Blueberry Lemon Coffee Cake, Roasted Vegetable Frittata, and Strawberry Walnut Salad.

For mothers day I wanted to cook brunch for my mom and our family.  I made blueberry lemon coffee cake, roasted vegetable frittata, and a strawberry walnut salad.  The coffee cake was light and sweet.  I had been wanting to make a frittata for a while and this one sure was a hit.  Lastly, my moms favorite salad is a strawberry walnut salad so I couldn’t resist.
