    Oh lovely lovely recipes and ideas. If only I could invite the whole family for a dinner in backyard. I am missing on all the family fun these last few months. It has been ages since I did a cook out and it is bugging me real bad.

    I made your chocolate pie for a family lunch and I returned home with an empty pan. Everyone loved the pie and couldn’t stop staying how much they loved it! Btw, love your book!
