Coconut Cream Pie - Heaven on earth

I tried Emeril Lagasse's Coconut Cream Pie for dessert tonight. There is only one word to describe it. Heavenly. It was the perfect ending to the perfect day. Of course we did do the meringue twice - because I forgot to add the sugar to the egg whites the first time. It came out perfect the second time - as you can plainly see.

There was only one other glitch. The rolls didn't really work out either. They never rose. They tasted like pretzels! But it didn't matter. It was still a great day. I hope yours was too.

I almost forgot, the wine for the evening changed slightly. Don pulled out a wine from the wine cellar for tonight. It was the 2000 Chimney Rock Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Oooooooh, was it good. And now it's all gone. Too bad.

Now it's time to settle down and watch a movie with the family.

See you tomorrow!


  1. I think I would still enjoy rolls that tasted like pretzels ;). That pie looks fabulous!

  2. My goodness that pie looked good..........and your resident assistant looked mighty cute too!
