I am treating my family to a real meal tonight. I am quite sure that they will be pleased :) I’m even including a dessert. It is one of my favorites, and one that brings some happy memories to me when I was growing up — Old Fashioned Chocolate Cream Pie.

Looking for more easy recipes? Check out my huge database of delicious, homemade goodies.

Every time my mom made this growing up, I stood in front of her just waiting for the pot to come off the stove. I knew as soon as her pie was filled, I would get what was left with a spoon. There is NOTHING in this world like warm yummy chocolate :)

I’ve now taken over the tradition and make this for my family all the time. My daughter and son love to get the pot and of course, where my mom bought a store bought crust, I make mine from scratch.
