More About This Recipe

  • My husband doesn’t really like dessert. It was almost a deal breaker for me. It was hard to imagine marrying a man that didn’t enjoy sugar as much as I did. See, I like to go on dates where each person orders dessert. That way I can try more things and not feel like a glutton by ordering two desserts just for me! The waiter would ask if we were interested in dessert and…only I would order one. Not fun! I had to make him learn to like dessert and order his own if this relationship was going to last. I tried and tried to get him to love dessert, but nothing really impressed him. But everyone has a weak spot—and I discovered his is peanut butter pie. I like to call it his gateway dessert. Once I got him eating peanut butter pie, he started trying other desserts, hence making our meals in restaurants a lot more enjoyable!
