Chocolate Chip Pie

Look no further if you are a fan  of crustless chocolate chip pie. I made this for folks at my office after receiving a number of requests for baked treats. I have been a little preoccupied with life for what seems like most of this year and have been not been doing some of the things that I love dearly -  spending leisurely time in the kitchen and   nurturing this blog.

 I have been striving to have  balance in my life  and it is a work in progress. I am learning to do the best I can and embrace things that I can't change. The sky will not fall just because there is a storm for the storm will definitely pass.

This does not take much time to whip up . Soak in the comforting aroma of vanilla, sugar and chocolate that will permeate the kitchen ( I baked it in the evening). The best part - it will linger on the next morning as you get ready to welcome another blessed  day....
