It’s Pi Day so how about some pie?

Loaded Chocolate Pecan Pie is possibly one of the best pies I have ever made (and the easiest). Packed with chocolate, pecans and coconut, every bite is a sweet revelation. The pie is wonderful at room temperature, but I really love eating a chilled slice.

‘Be Like The Water’ sounds like a whole lot of other stuff out there, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. Catchy and energetic, it’s rocking my Saturday.

“Don’t forget to write
From the place you spent the night
Never fear
Be like the water my dear”
