This is my first official post of my new food blog, inspired by my husband! He encouraged me to share my successes and failures in the kitchen with the world. Food is love and this pie is full of it!
The recipe called for a store boughtoreo crust, but I prefer to make my own! It allows me to eat a few oreos during the process!
I don't always measure, but I will try to get better at that to post the most accurate information possible. I often change recipes I come across before I every try them as written and it is usually a success.....and sometimes not!
This recipe is from Kraft Foods and I love finding these simple quick fixes!
Ingredients: 1 pkg. (8 squares) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped 1 cup whipping cream 6 Tbsp. seedless raspberry jam, divided 1 OREO Pie Crust (6 oz.) or see below for your own crust 2 cups fresh raspberries 1 Tbsp. water
MICROWAVE chocolate and cream in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after each minute. Beat with whisk until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Stir in 2 Tbsp. jam. POUR into crust. Refrigerate 4 hours. ARRANGE berries on top of pie. Microwave remaining jam and water in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 30 sec.; stir until well blended. Brush onto berries. Keep refrigerated.
Oreo Crust: 1.5 rows oreos 4 T butter, melted
Crush the oreos in a food processor; then add to the melted butter and stir well. Press into pie pan and it's ready to go!

I currently live in the midwest with the most amazing husband! We love to cook, bake, try new recipes, dine out and anything food related!
We love life and find inspiration everywhere in everyday life!
We have three dogs (two of which we adopted from rescues), a cat and two horses! We enjoy spending time with all of our animals and are so lucky to have them.
We're very active and enjoy volleyball, softball, mountain biking, hiking, vacationing, etc. We basically enjoy being on the move!
I love to cook and bake, and I'm rather good at it too. People often ask me to make them stuff for special events. I'm a fitness freak, so this love of food has caused much strife in my life.....and it always wins! ;) I think loving food and fitness are essential to each other. I work out so I can eat more food! In food there is love and many lasting and unforgettable memories are made over a great meal!
