I cannot believe it is June. I feel like I say that every month. It seems more and more true though as time goes on. A year ago today I was just getting back to work after my maternity leave. It was a rocky time. Today things are much more together. Our little family has a rhythm.
As much as I would like time to slow down, I am super excited but the thought of summer. Warm weather. Walks outside. Ice cream. I am working on my 2016 Summer bucket list. I know this summer will be great.
The coming of June also means that it is time for the Secret Recipe Club reveal. I had so much fun last month walking through my new home in Group A. I was super excited that a blog I found particularly charming was the blog I got assigned for this month. Nicole from Crazed Mom has been blogging for well over ten years. She recently changed over from Daily Dish Recipes, in case you are familiar with that blog. Crazed Mom definitely seems fitting as Nicole has five teenagers. One little Miss O gives us a run for our money; I cannot imagine five. Maybe I could come over for lessons on keeping it all together.
Being that I was so excited to be assigned Nicole's blog I immediately found my recipe for June. It was so long ago I don't know how I ultimately found Minny's Chocolate Pie recipe, but I am glad I did. This pie is kind of like a brownie in a pie crust. Super rich and chocolaty.
I loved this pie and ate more than my fair share. My husband would much prefer an apple pie but he certainly stepped right up to sample this creation.
I also tagged a million other recipes from Crazed Mom as well as crafts. Check out her cauliflower pizza crust, skinny baked beignets, and creamy, crunchy peanut butter pumpkin truffles.
