My husband and kids prepared dinner for Mother’s Day. My husband grilled steaks and my daughter made Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cauliflower and Green Beans with Garlic. My oldest son set the table. And my youngest son picked flowers from the shooting star hydrangea bush they bought me and put them in a cup of water, which was a sweet thought, but annoyed his older siblings.
Dinner was absolutely delicious! For dessert my daughter made a Double Chocolate Pizookie. My daughter is the family pizookie expert. A pizookie is a pizza-cookie that is served warm with ice-cream on top. She insists that it must be served warm. If you wait until it is room temperature, you no longer have a pizookie, you just have a giant cookie. Giant cookies are good, but they are not pizookies!
My daughter adapted my Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe to make her Pizookie. We used a pizza cutter to serve warm slices of pizookie and then let each person choose their favorite toppings.
