Sometimes when I’ve had a tough day, my daughter makes me a Rich Crusty Apple Pie to cheer me up.

Pie makes most things better.


If it’s been a really, really, REALLY tough day, she makes Dark Chocolate Volcano Cakes.   Sinfully rich, not too sweet, with a soft goey center, they’re incredibly delectable served warm with a blob of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.  They’re good cold, too.  On the day after a really, really, REALLY tough day, I have a leftover one for breakfast.

She’s a very good daughter.

The apple pie recipe is here.

She should share her recipe for the Dark Chocolate Volcano Cakes, don’t you think?
