If motherhood has taught me anything, it’s that my sons are always willing to lend a hand in the kitchen and to even help with dishes. When I started blogging, my sons were 12 and 14, so for 7 years they’ve known that words and food and photos and a story are what consume their mother’s days. But then they get to reap the benefits, by tasting new recipes and helping in the the kitchen prepare for dinner guests. It’s a privilege to raise these 2 young men, and love on them when they come home for college breaks.

On a seasonably cool morning, I was so grateful that they were home, and that they can could step in and help make this simple 3-Ingredient dessert!
