Lately, I’ve been having dreams where I’m about to give birth or there is a stork dropping off a new bundle, and honestly it’s been freaking me the heck out. After having my son, I promptly got a tattoo that read “One and Done”. Ok, I didn’t do that but I really am done with the whole human creation aspect of life and it wasn’t until I finished my book that I realized I just had a book baby. The feeling was similar to when I first saw my son (come on, nothing will ever compare to that moment), and I did break down and cry when I realized what I had just done. Sadly, I also kind of look like I just had a baby from the stress and constant cooking that happened in my kitchen, but it was so worth it.
Six months + $1500 worth of ingredients + 600 dishwasher loads + stretchy pants + a whole lot creativity & love = My book
I’m hoping to share the title and cover of it real soon!
So on to today’s recipe. For over a month this has been calling to me like a siren to a sailor at sea. It’s super easy and perfect for Mother’s Day (which was yesterday, I know). I made mine topped with whipped heavy whipping cream and
shared with my husband and son.
