In my post on recipes and love songs,(you know the one, the keynote, you can see everyone and not just mine here at Blogher) I mentioned a fudge pie. I have meant to post it for quite some time (and now related posts has reminded me that the fudge pie is indeed here on this blog already.) and to introduce my children to the joys of drowning sorrows in chocolate…in that particular familial chocolate. Yes, I know, eating disorders, emotional eating and whatever. It also is about mommies and love and distraction. I just haven’t been able to put my fingers on it. Yes, I know where it is approximately, maybe. But, coming up with it has proved elusive. Maybe the right teen crisis hasn’t occurred? Or maybe it is that it wanted to elude my own stress.
In any case, my sister with her almost brand new blog, had a crisis. Like me, she keeps busy when worried. So, what does she think of? Well among other things, Fudge Pie.
Note: If you are out of unsweetened baking chocolate, you can use the oil/cocoa substitution.
But, really, the recipe cures many a woe or lightens it. Magic. Especially when shared.
