I’ve been wanting to make this French chocolate silk pie after I came across with the name. All French and silky? It must be something! And chocolate? I knew I had to make this! The only concern was that most of the recipes contain raw eggs. And it kind of freaks me out. Not that we have any problem with raw eggs, but when you have young kids in the house, you have to be a little cautious.
Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!
I am thankful that I have the best family in the whole universe. My best family consists of my family in Hong Kong, my husband’s family, and the family that we both created. Yes, 400 members of them! And I’d never appreciated how fun it was to have a huge family until I have one now. And oh my god, I just wish I could have the energy it requires to reproduce and raise more kids of my own!
Cherries are one of the fruits that we’ve had way too many this summer. They were incredibly sweet, juicy and cheap this season. Right after we bought a pound or so, we would get another pound from a friend who came over for dinner, then another pound from my mother-in-law who has a crave to fill up my refrigerator no matter how full it already is! Quiet often we had loads of cherries at home. And it’s simply too crude to watch them ripen and get moldy.
Just trying to breath that last blueberry scent as the summer is drawing close. Weather is getting less warmer, that’s for sure. But I have no complain at all. I am in love with that early morning autumn breeze. So fresh and crisp. The kind of breeze I love the most.
I know a lot of people who are not really into cherry dessert. Baking with cherries sounds really gross to them. Some even have a hard time facing an apple pie because cooking fruits to them is nothing but YUCK!
I happen to be the opposite who loves to bake with fruits. I can’t really recall which fruit I haven’t tried to bake with. Maybe durian? Well, the thing is I don’t even like to eat durian.
