chocolatey goodness.

last night we had my parents and nana over for dinner.  the guys went pheasant hunting awhile back, and wanted to cook up some of their kill.  mom and i weren't as enthusiastic about it, but she found a recipe for a raspberry reduction sauce to serve with it.  it was actually a good complement to the dry little birdies.  i made pie for dessert, and wanted to share this super easy recipe!  it would be a good dish to celebrate mother's day, hint hint.

it's from southern living's feb 2010 issue, and it is so good.  i even used a frozen pie crust, still delish.  basically, melt 6 sq. unsweetened chocolate, then stir in a 14 oz. can of fat free sweetened condensed milk, and let sit for 2 minutes.  then fold in half a tub of cool whip.  cover and chill, then top with the rest of the cool whip.  super rich and fudgy.  although i may try it with semisweet next time.  let me know if you try it!  we loved it!

another good idea for mom is this gardener's hand scrub.  i mixed some up using green apple dish soap, and it smells good AND works on ground in dirt.  since i never can find my gloves when i want to plant flowers, this has a permanent spot next to my sink.  i also made a few jars to give as prizes at bunco next week, and for mom's day.
