Dark Chocolate Cream Pie-don’t let the lighter color fool you, this pie has all the rich flavor of dark chocolate in a creamy, cool pie!
I have the most amazing readers/fans/followers/friends! And yes I do consider you all my friends. We share stories, we share laughter, we may even share a tear or two.
You let me babble on about this or that. You try my recipes. You leave kind comments, or you let me know when I’ve made a mistake (typo usually) but always in a constructive way. I’ve never had a harsh or rude comment that I had to delete. You don’t always like my recipes (you can’t please everyone) and that’s ok.
There have even been a few times when someone didn’t agree with a post (the story) and I’m good with that too. We’re all entitled to our own opinions. Don’t even get me started on Bananas or fresh Tomatoes, yuk to the double yuk! I know I’m the odd ball on both of those and it’s all good.
I’ve heard from other bloggers about rude commenters on their Facebook pages but it had never happened to me. I always get the occasional “yuks”, “I don’t like this”, “not for me” and my personal favorites-“This is what causes diabetes” (no, eating too much of it, too often can cause diabetes. All things in moderation.) and “I can’t have this, I’m on a diet” (but it’s still nice to look at and drool over, isn’t it?)
I let those comments stay. I know when I go shopping with my girls, we’ll find items and make comments like “love this,” “this would look so cute on you,” “I have to have this,” but we also make the comments “no way would I wear this,” “That’s a terrible color” and even the “you won’t wear that as long as your living in my house” has been said a time or two. So I understand the “yuks”.
But last weekend, The comments went beyond yuk, into a crude, perverted sexual nature. On a FOOD post! It was the “haters” come out just to ruin everyone else’s fun. I even had to look up one word (shows that I live in a sheltered world.) I immediately deleted and banned the offenders from my facebook page. I’ve also set up filters for certain words on my page. But it still bugged me. So much so that I did a PSA on my page. You can see it here but I basically said, it will not be tolerated, I’m family friendly. End of story.
The outpouring of love and support from my facebook family had me in tears. Over 900 comments and still going. I tried replying and liking to all the comments, I have read all of them, but Facebook keeps putting me in a time out for liking too much. Know that I truly, from the bottom of my heart, treasure each and every comment.
We always hear about the bad in the world, but I’m here to tell you, there is 100 times more good than bad out there. I knew it but you all proved it!
And to the haters out there, you didn’t hurt me, or my feelings. I know exactly what you are. Some lonely troll with no friends, no life, just looking to make other people as miserable as you are. I feel sorry for you and hope that one day you will grow up (even though I’m sure you are probably already of an adult age) and learn the value in creating good content, good feelings and good relationships.
So let’s chat about this pie for a few moments. This pie is all about easy. The schools have got me pegged and when Pi (Pie) day is around the corner, you get the call. I made 5 different pies for Pi day This one, was so light, so rich in flavor, and so easy to make, I just had to share it first.
I used a premade crust, you can certainly make a graham cracker or Oreo crust from scratch if you want. It comes together in about 10 minutes and it freezes well. I made it a week before Pie day, took the photos the next day and then froze it until the 14th. Just as amazing that 7th day as it was the first.
