Just so you know, it pays to live with your camera ready at all times. Look what I noticed in his orange juice glass this morning. Totally random and so sweet! How's that for a nice way to start your birthday? Can you see the heart? Just goes to show that he's such a sweetie even the orange juice knows it.
Since I haven't been able to work on anything around the house this week, I thought I'd share the recipe for what I've been baking for the birthday dinner instead of a cake. He loves French Silk pie and so I've whipped up a couple for tonight. It takes quite a while to beat it all up but it's a great time to practice your photography. ;) I guess I should have been doing the dishes but....whatever!
French Silk Pie
2/3 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate melted
1 tablespoons cocoa
1 baked pie shell
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Mix in melted chocolate and cocoa. Beat in eggs one at a time mixing 5 minutes after each addition. Pour into pie shell. Chill 4 hours or overnight.
Note: This pie contains raw eggs so be careful to keep well refrigerated.
OK so this isn't the best photo. I should have carried the pies over to some natural light but oh well. Trust me. They taste better than they look. I know, I licked the batter.
Have a beautiful Saturday!
