A Crowd Pleaser: Milk Chocolate Pecan Pie

At work, I sit beside this girl who’d suddenly decided she wants to undergo detoxification by eating only fruits and vegetable for a week.

So this is what happens when you are, or know someone who is, planning to be on a diet — you start to think of all the decadent sweets you’ll missed out on. Really, not everybody’s like that? Anyway, that’s what happened. I looked up sweets on Pinterest and got very interested in a Forrest Gump Chocolate Tart, which looked so good I wanted to thank whoever made the film that inspired the author of the said blog post. From there on, I decided I’d do something sweet the next time I’m in the kitchen.

I enjoyed scraping the base with my spoon, but apparently it’s not the same with the rest of the family — who kept asking teasing me why I made it that way. I’ve adjusted this one and the result is delightful.
