When I was about 25 or so, I was out of town and I took my twins and my young foster sister to McDonalds. It was chaos. Three little kids, a busy Sunday morning, and of course this Mcd’s had no play place so the kids had nothing to do except sit beside me and bicker. Here I was, 25 years old, with three kids, in the middle of the storm. Kids fighting, milk spilling, when an older man leaned down to me, smiled and said, “Happy Mother’s Day, Mama.”
Mother’s Day. We don’t really celebrate it. It somehow doesn’t seem right to recognize mothers en masse. Your mother is special. She deserves special recognition. Right here, I could write you an essay on Motherhood and what it means to love a child, whether you gave birth to her or not, but instead, I’m going to give you something you can give your mom or that special lady in your life who loves you like a mom. Chocolate.
Recipe options: If your mom has special health needs, you’re fine to use an egg replacement, vegetable oil instead of butter and another sweetener. The muffins will still tastes amazing.
This recipe is dedicated to my mom.
