Last weekend Chicago was, once again, transformed into the inside of a snow globe. It has actually become the norm that the weather pattern here goes as such: Lots of snow one day. Sub-zero, arctic temperatures for about 2-3 days. Lots of snow, again. Sub-zero, arctic, school is cancelled because it’s so cold temperatures for another 2-3 days. Lots of snow, again.
I’m not kidding! It has really been one heck of a winter, already, and it’s only February! In Chicago speak that means winter isn’t even halfway over yet. Oye.
So I have decided to take advantage of these cozy, sweater/fireplace weekend days and bake it up! When mother nature gives me snow, I give her back brownies or cookies or in today’s case……chocolate cream pie. Sometimes it’s just what you are craving, know what I mean? And what could be better than snuggling up on the couch with your loved ones, a big piece of chocolate cream pie, fireplace raging and the perfect movie on the tv? Tell me, can you think of anything?
