I’m blessed to have the world’s best mom. Okay, I know, I’m a bit biased. She’s pretty awesome, number one in my book.

When I think about Mom my heart is filled with joy. I fondly remember baking and cooking in my mom’s kitchen- flour all over the floor and pans scattered. I think about the long nights Mom spent in my room, laying next to me, because I was just too afraid to face the scary, dark room alone. Then there are the little things, which now as a mom I realize demanded much of Mom’s time, but she never spoke a word or complained. The laundry piles, dishes, homemade dinners, brown-bag lunches… all thankless jobs performed with a tender heart of motherly love.

Now, as an adult and mother I reflect back on my childhood, grateful for the years I spent under Mom’s love and protection. That love and protection continues today, but takes a different shape. Today, Mom is my number one fan- rooting for me when times are hard or I just need a friend, always present to share in life’s joys and triumphs.

    This is probably a stupid question, but I am pretty knew at using coconut oil but haven’t tried it in desserts. I love it with everything else! But I am not a fan of the flavor or coconut. I haven’t noticed it changing the flavor of my savory foods but what about something like this cake? Does it taste like coconut?

      Hey Tamra, The coconut oil depends on the coconut oil used. I’ve found that some brands taste more “coconutty” than others. In this dessert, I think the chocolate overpowers the coconut taste :).
