MAC and I were invited over to my parents for dinner and dessert last night and boy were we in for a treat! A few weeks ago, my mom had pulled something in her back and could barely walk. It took her a bit to fully recover and during those few weeks, she couldn't cook (which drove her crazy). Yesterday was the first day she had really felt back to her normal self and she most certainly made up for lost time by preparing a scrumptious spaghetti meat sauce (still trying to persuade her to give me this "secret" recipe), roasted parmesan zucchini, an oil based dipping sauce for bread, and Mississippi Mud Cupcakes. Everything was quite yummy, as usual, but due to my sweet addiction, the cupcakes were my favorite part of the meal. Mom even had a tube of the frosting (yes this was home made as well) at the ready so we could add more of this gooey amazingness to a bite that was lacking it; indulgent, yes, but oh so good.
