Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well.

The chocolate filling, sour cream and cherries make this pie recipe similar to a black forest torte.

Everything was going well until I started adding the egg yolks, which is when the melted butter started to separate from the rest of the mix, and blobs of oily cocoa splashed all over! I tried to use a whip - bad mistake, as the solids just clung to the inside of the whip wires - so I changed to a wooden spoon. It worked better, but it still took a while to incorporate the butter back into the mixture. Probably, an electric mixer would have been a better choice, but I only have one set of beaters and I didn't want to have to wash them before beating the egg whites, 'cause I know they have to be entirely grease-free or the whites won't whip.So, I finally got the mixture into the pie shell, and decided to try my new Talisman Designs "rubberized" pie shield to protect the crust from over-browning. 40 minutes later I removed the pie from the oven, and did the toothpick-poke test - it was done. Next problem: the filling had puffed up over the inner edge of the pie shield, so when I removed it, some of the filling went with it.One more thing: I don't think 1/2 c. cherry pie filling is enough (I used about 2/3 of the 20 oz. can).I used my good friends as guinea pigs for this pie, and we all agreed that it is very tasty, but I don't know if I would make it again, just because of all the hassle.Perhaps someone else has a better idea of how to do this???

Today marks a quarter of a century for me on this beautiful planet. Twenty-five years of learning, exploring, and stuffing my face with delicious eats. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to spend a relaxing day in the kitchen.
Even though it seems like summer may have just started, let’s face it – school is just around the corner. Even if you don’t want to think about it (or, let’s be honest here, are secretly excited to have the kids back in school), it helps to plan ahead. More ...
