I love to cook and bake, but it has not been something I have done consistently the last few years due to the stress and depression in my life. Now that I am not homeschooling, I am trying to make more homemade meals and baked goods for my family. So, this month I will be trying out a few new recipes.
I have always wanted to make a chocolate pie because I have a household full of chocolate lovers. Not sure how that happened since I don’t like the stuff. I know, poor me. But, anyways, my mom made a chocolate pie each October for my dad’s birthday because it was his favorite pie. She only made one then because she said they were a lot of work. I never helped her but was always intrigued since she said it was difficult and it always turned out lovely. Since my dad passed away October 6, 2013 and his birthday is coming up, I decided to make one. I think he would have been proud. It turned out amazingly well and it was devoured quite quickly by my crew so I know it was a hit. Making this pie really hit home to me how much cooking is an art---just another form of expressing yourself.
