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. You’re Mom sounds wonderful! And she taught you some very important thing. (I like the one about nothing being too sweet. TOTALLY true!)

    The apron and towel arrived and they are AWESOME!!! I love them!!! My daughter, of course, quickly said “do I get it?” “Ummm… sorry sweetheart. This time, Mommy gets it.” We’ll have to see in future posts who ends up wearing it… I have a feeling she will win out. She always wins.

    Your biscoff bark was amazing!!!! I don’t even know what the heck biscoff is tho. I’m off to research. But cookie butter? I’m in!

  2. Sometimes I think “Curse you people and your access to Biscoff”. As soon as I get a chance to experiment (summer), I’m going to order some from Amazon. Saltines can make the best candy. Weird! My mom has a recipe for homemade Twix that uses Club crackers.

  3. For everyone who has been looking for Biscoff Spread…my WalMart has it in the Peanut Butter section – smooth and crunchy! It is delicious!

    1. SO good! I have to rush past it on the shelf. 🙂 I’ve also seen it at Safeway, if anyone is on the west coast.

  4. I think you’ve just improved on perfection. I love me some biscoff and saltine toffee and pretzels and white chocolate…but all together? Oh man. HEAVEN!

  5. Awe what a super sweet post for your mom! I loved it!!! And biscoff, well, you know how much I love this stuff! This bark is truly amazing. Sweet and salty…best ever!!!
