  1. Served for Easter dinner - huge hit! These are great instructions for making a fool-proof meringue shell. It was time consuming but it is made ahead & ready when you are. Everyone asked for the recipe!
  2. This is really nice. I have never made a meringue before! I definitely enjoyed making this even if it is a little time consuming. It is worth it! The chocolate filling is wonderful!! Thanks connie! Great pie!


I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 2. I have been cooking for 45 years and it is still my passion. I am married to a chef. My oldest son is also a chef. All my kids are major foodies. We really enjoy getting together for family holidays etc. And it is always all about the food and love & laughter. The baby in the icon is my 4 year old grandson, Oliver. The pic is me on my 59th b'day, my husband gave me those gorgeous pearls and we had a great evening. I also must mention the other lover in my life the very hairy, extemely beautiful, totally black cat named Spike; actually he is afraid of his own shadow so we gave him a tough guy name. One of my sons was a soldier in the Canadian military. I pray for all of our children who so bravely defend our way of life. I try to do something kind everyday. It really is nice to be nice. I detest pettiness, two faced people and dishonesty. I try to treat everyone I touch with the same respect I would like. Also I try not to sweat the small stuff. This is pretty much my survival philosophy. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
