For anyone who may be interested, I started a recipe blog. I have been thinking about doing this for a while. I try a lot of new recipes from different magazines and cookbooks every month and, over the years, have developed a huge collection of 'Keepers'. I am asked often for easy dinner recipes that are tried and true and I thought a blog would be a good way to pass them on. You can check it out at www.theallensrecipes.blogspot.com if you would like.
Incidentally, I made a pie today. We haven't tried it yet, so I can't vouch for the recipe, but Kelly posted her Grandmother's chocolate pie recipe on her blog. She says it is the BEST chocolate pie. That made me nostalgic as my Grandma was also known for her chocolate pie and I do not have her recipe. I have tried a few over the years but never found one worth making twice. If you want to try Kelly's Ma-Maw's the recipe is here. I will say that I did not use her meringue recipe. I just made a meringue with egg whites and sugar and baked it until it was cooked and golden brown.
