Weekend Cooking: Chocolate Pecan Pie

I found this wonderful blog that has a Weekend Cooking meme. It looks like recipes are shared. I may run this a little differently. Some weeks I may share a recipe that I found that I think might be amazing (crediting where I found it of course). I also may just discuss the things I cooked during the week. I will probably go by my mood every week. I try to cook once a week and have meals on the ready during the week for when I don’t feel like cooking. Key word is try.

This week: Chocolate Pecan Pie

I chose pie this week in honor of Pi Day (3/14). I haven’t actually made one myself. I used to know somebody who made these during the holiday. It’s one of the things I miss the most. I never really considered looking up a recipe to make it myself until recently. It’s definitely one of my favorite pies.
