(UPDATED) obsessions, chocolate and otherwise...

After my last post, my spirits have been better.  There have been some dear friends making an effort to cheer me up and help me relate to what motherhood will be like.  They are so sweet, just like this chocolate pie I am showing you all a HUGE picture of here on my blog.

Now, about this chocolate pie. It is so good.  Someone made it for a pot-luck back at Christmas time and I fell in love with the flavor of it.  I badgered the poor woman to give me the recipe for it for several weeks until she finally emailed it to me.  I ran right out and bought the ingredients for it and made one.  It is totally easy and in the two months that I've had the recipe, I've maybe made 8 pies for various different occasions, all very well received.

I just wanted to share my obsession of chocolate pie with you.  Just so you know and understand that in my confession I will be planning on making more.  This recipe will be a favorite in my family for years to come.

UPDATE:  link to recipe HERE

Other than that, there's not much to report.  We've did have some snow this week, but it was here one day and gone the next.  It was pretty falling in the night sky though.

Oh, and I'm completely obsessed with Downton Abbey and all things English, lately.

What are your obsessions?

I share your Downton Abbey obsession. It's going to be hard to wait until September for season 3! Wonder how many times before then I will watch the DVDs?

The pie looks yummy! Want to share the recipe? :-)

I am totally into DA, too. Wow, that pie looks amazing!

And yes, Downton Abbey is its own sort of delicious. I'm half way through Season 2 right now, LOVE IT!

Downton Abbey is totally one of my obsessions. I hate that it's over again! UGH! Kinda like waiting for another slice of that pie I bet.

I can't wait to make this recipe! I'm always on the hunt for good ones ... and this being chocolate, no less. :-) Yum!
I have heard such good things about DA that I think I need to put it on my list of shows to watch. Thanks for the good reviews!

Just got into DA last week and am obsessed also. Thank goodness I have to catch up so I'll have something to keep me busy until Sept. Glad your friends cheered you up- you are in my prayers. Walking past that room is a constant reminder. We have a 'nursery' that hasn't been a nursery in 10 years and now is a makeshift office. everytime I walk by and get sad, I pray for IF blogland. God Bless!
