You all know that I love my mom like crazy. I grew up with five brothers and my mom always had my back when the boys, well, got a little mean…which was a lot. And even today, I may be all grown up (well…sort of), but mom’s still got my back through thick and thin.
Being the only girl (or well the only one that can really take on Mother’s Day), I make it my duty to give my mom the best Mother’s Day possible. For me, that just means making her KILLER food. Gifts? LAME. It’s all about the food. So the following dishes are my favorite ways to spoil my mom…breakfast, lunch, dinner… and of course dessert – chocolate lovers style!!
