"Becoming a dad has changed me as a chef in so many ways," proud papa Curtis Stone tells PEOPLE. Puréeing veggies for his son, 18-month-old Hudson, the celeb chef says he's really realized "what incredible stuff mother nature gives us to work with."

So it's those fresh and delicious ingredients – plus a few savory spices – that he plans to use while cooking for fiancée Lindsay Price this Mother's Day, Sunday, May 12. Want to steal his ideas (we promise we won't tell!)? Read on for five fabulous brunch recipes.

Mango-Pineapple Smoothie

Serves 6
• 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and coarsely cubed
• ¼ fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and coarsely cubed
• 1 cup fresh orange juice
• 3 cups ice cubes
• lime slices for garnish

1. In a blender, combine the mangoes, pineapples, orange juice and ice cubes and blend until smooth and frothy. (If your blender is not large enough to hold all the ingredients, blend in two batches.)
2. Pour the smoothie into six glasses. Garnish with lime slices and serve immediately.
