Sunday John and I went to his mother's house for dinner to celebrate his birthday. Don't get me wrong, I love Nancy, my mother in law but it takes SO much effort for me to be there! She never lets me help cook, clean or do anything. Then she will "complain" that she is tired and its too much work for her! Come on, let me just help out! After two and half years of being married I have finally persuaded her to let me bring desserts. I made a chocolate peanut butter cake. I found the recipe in the "Holiday" book by Alice Medrich.
