"My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it." Mark Twain
One thing in particular that I appreciate my mother did for me was that when I was quite young-maybe 8 or 9 even she bought me a kids' cookbook of my own and would encourage me (or maybe it was really me doing the persuading) to make dinner for the family once a week.
I learned a lot from those trials and error. I also started my love for being in the kitchen at an early age.
I brought Dreamy Island Cookies, Magical Mermaids and Sweet Starfish shaped sugar cookies to the farm for sale yesterday. I have a batch of Hazelnut shortbread ready to be baked and I made a Lemon Cake for a friends Mother's Day party today.
Thanks Mom and Happy Mother's Day!
