I love dessert! Growing up, my favorite part about eating dinner was getting to dessert. To this day, if someone offered me dessert before dinner, I’d happily comply. I find that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree with my two kidlets. I think my son’s favorite question is, “Mommy, can I have a treat?” He’s a smart boy. He totally knows that his mom can’t resist a sweet treat and that more times that not, I’ll partake in the deliciousness right along with him!
Memorial Day Weekend is considered the unofficial start to summer – and for me that also means the official opening of BBQ season! For the next 12 weeks there will undoubtedly be a hot dog or hamburger as part of my meal plan at least once a week. I always seem to worry about what I’ll serve alongside those American food classics – macaroni/potato salad, beans, corn on the cob – you get the idea. Dessert for me though is a no-brainer. I like to pair all that salty food with a little bit of sweetness so for me that means serving another American food classic, cupcakes!
