Today is my mom’s birthday. It also happens to be the first day of spring.
To celebrate, I am sharing with you a new favorite waffle – 100% whole wheat goodness with some dark chocolate cocoa powder thrown in for good measure!
On the last waffle or two I tossed in some dark chocolate chips – oh my, what a treat.
Happy Birthday, Mom. You are the best and I’m so thankful that God chose you to give me life and to teach and instruct me. I love you.
