Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

October 14, 2014
Classic pumpkin pie with a smooth, chocolate twist...
If you would of told me a few years ago, that pictures of a cheeseburger would stress me out, I would told you that you're totally nuts.  But, hey, that's what has been going on around here as of late.  Things haven't been going my way  in the ole' kitchen.  Oh boy. It's crazy.  Yeah, I've had a few failures this past week when it comes to the baking and cooking of it all.  Then, I had success in prep, but, they were a photography fail.  It wasn't pretty.  But, they were quite fabulous.  So, stay tuned for a new cheeseburger dish coming your way in the future.


For today though, we have pie.  Yippee! A delicious pumpkin pie topped off with some even more delicious chocolate layer.  This is one yummy pie guys.  It's a great little twist to the classic pumpkin pie and is perfect for fall season!
