Biscoff pretzel toffee bark with title

My mom is awesome. Really, she is. She’s taught me so much and I’m so thankful for her.

Enter this list:

Everything I Ever Needed To Know About Life I Learned From My Mom

1. Not to sweat the small stuff. (That’s what Dads are for.)

2. To always be nice. (Obviously.)

3. To be confident. My mom was a great example of confidence. After all, she was always right! (Ha, just kidding mom.) I’m not too good at this one yet, but I’m trying.

4. To love myself. Because if I don’t, who will?

5. To always question everything. Like, say, if there is a sign at an amusement park that says “Don’t push the red button!” you should always press it, just to see what happens. (Like, maybe you’ll get water squirted in the face, but hey, it’s okay.)

{That actually happened. Have you ever been to the Flinstone’s RV Park near the Grand Canyon?}

6. She taught me what a good marriage is (and thanks to my dad for that, also).

7. To always try new things.

Jar of cookie butter held in a hand.

Like Biscoff. Or Speculoos Cookie Butter.

8. She taught me to follow rules. And to be imaginative. And good at math.

Biscoff and white chocolate melted together in a bowl.

Did you know that Biscoff + White Chocolate = Liquid Gold?

Now you’re a mathematician too!

9. She taught me that nothing is ever too sweet.

Biscoff pretzel toffee bark held in a woman's fingers with labels on each layer.

Not even saltine toffee that has biscoff (or TJs cookie butter) white chocolate gold all over it.

10. She taught me how to laugh at myself and how not to take oneself too seriously…although I’m still working on those too.

That’s not all my mom taught me. She’s taught me way more things. Like how to bake a cake. And how to eat an entire box of See’s Candy in one sitting.

You know, all the important things. 😉

Love you mom!

  1. What the heck is Biscoff? Sounds like I need to try it. Do they sell it anywhere other than trader Joe’s? Sadly we don’t have one.

  2. Wish I could hit like a hundred times. What a cute post, Dorothy! Can’t wait to try this recipe, thanks sweets!

  3. LOOOOOOVE. I kind of feel like I know your mom, because you mention her so much 🙂 Which is a good thing, by the way.

    One day Jordan will write a blog post called… “everything I learned about dessert blogging…”

  4. Thanks, Kiddo. This was very nice and the bark was pretty great too. And one of my favorite sayings used to be…”I may not always be right, but I’m never wrong!!!” lol
    Love you,
    Mom :}

  5. This is really sweet, and funny – like you 😉
    I just posted on my facebook page today that I have not yet tried any type of cookie butter! Can you believe it?? This bark may have convinced me it’s time!
