My sister requested that I bake her a chocolate pie. And I did since I am pretty much the bestest sister ever. Here is the recipe:
Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, salt, and yolks in a 3-quart heavy saucepan until combined and then whisk in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat while whisking constantly. Reduce heat and continue whisking for another minute until the filling has thickened. Whisk in chocolates, butter, and vanilla. Cover surface of filling with tin foil or wax paper and cool completely (about 2 hours).
Spoon filling into crust, cover and chill pie for 6 hours.
Before serving, beat cream and sugar until it holds stiff peaks and spoon on top of pie.

I decided to try out different coffeeshops around Dallas, and just discovered my new favorite: Crooked Tree Coffeehouse in Uptown. We almost missed it at first because it’s in an old house. It has a combination of mismatched chairs and tables, sofas, bookshelves and boardgames. And free Wi-Fi.

Sorry I haven’t been posting for a couple days! I just came back from a wedding in Arkansas and I’m too tired to post anything worthwhile. But…here is something I drew while we were at a gas station in a tiny town in Oklahoma. We tried to get out of there asap so it's unfinished!
