Love is ...... Chocolate Pie!

Today I made my first love's 
favourite pie!

He was kind and gentle
had a warm and welcoming smile
Dark brown kind eyes
Loved his family with all his heart!

That was my dad.

His very favourite pie was Chocolate Pie
and just about any other pie
that my mom made.

Chocolate Pie surrounded by vintage Valentine cards that my dad received during his school days (circa 1920's)

I used my mom's recipe 
and this is how she wrote it in her 
recipe book:

Makes 2 pies
4 Cups milk (she always used whole milk) – heated to boiling point
Mix together:
1 Cup “good full” of Brown Sugar
4 Tbsp. Flour – heaping
2 Tbsp. Cocoa
Mix with 1 Cup of Milk – add into remaining hot milk and cook till thickened.  Add vanilla, salt and some butter.
Pour into baked pie crust, cool and top with whipped cream.

Foot note - My sweetheart likes this pie too!

Till next time ...... this is my February edition pie


  1. Would love a piece right now here in front of me with a fork...
    Looks great!

  2. Looks so wonderful! Thank you for the recipe. I don't know why I go to the chocolate pudding mix when I could do this instead.

  3. Does the Farmer need a hired man around the place? I'd work just for the meals! Honest!

  4. Oh my but that looks good! A real, honest to goodness homemade chocolate pie - heavenly!

  5. Not fair, Rosella. ;-) I'm drooling!

  6. My sweetheart would love this, too! SO beautiful, Rosella!!!!


Summer in Full Swing!

It's official! Summer has arrived in SW Ontario. It has been sweltering hot, the Spring flowers have bloomed and are long gone. ...
