A Pie That Changed My Life

  
5 years ago I saw the movie Waitress for the first time. I liked it. I wouldn’t say I loved it, but it did make me want to make a pie from scratch–AND that one pie did change my life.

It made me wake up at dawn to practice my pie crust every week. It made me give pie away to others. It made me work with my hands, my brain, and most importantly, my heart. It made me look at my world in a whole new way, through my tastebuds.

It made me want to live a whole pie life–AND I do. Any time I doubt who I am, or why I exist, all I have to do is make a pie and remember when I decided to actually start living and licking all my pie plates clean. 

What was the pie that changed my life forever? The Falling In Love Chocolate Mousse Pie from Waitress. It helped me fall in love with cooking, no telling what it might do for you? 

Recipe:
