Happy Hump Day! I feel like I say that exact same greeting every Wednesday. It just sounds so bland to say, "Happy Wednesday." But maybe I should try... I don't know. But I guess it doesn't really matter all that much, huh? It's another day, we're alive and I am grateful.
Yesterday was a tough mom day for me though, I'm gonna be honest. Sami woke up at 11pm Monday with diarrhea and has been fighting watery stool ever since. I know that's probably TMI, but seriously y'all...Mom Life... He is staying hydrated, not acting sick, and eating as normal. He does have a narlie diaper rash though, that is really making him uncomfortable. And as Momma, I feel so bad! And OMGosh, I totally almost ran out of diapers too! Which really would have been a winning moment. Oh, and let us not forget that we are also missing a screw from an light switch that just happens to be over Sami's crib and I can't find it. ::Freak Out, Mom Moment:: Now I'm over here like, "Did he swollow it?" Am I gonna find a screw in his poop? IDK... So, as you can probably imagine, as this is literally the first time Sami has fought anything worse than a cold, I am kinda panicky and on edge, ON TOP OF THE FACT, I am also super hormonal...yep. Yeah, yesterday was a day of lots of prayer, Bible reading, and the hubs talking me down.
So, what better time then this to share an amazing P.M.S. fighting desert, full of flavor and full of endorphin releasing chocolate! If you love sweets, you are sure to love this incredible ice cream pie. I promise, I don't eat this way all the time, but there are days like yesterday, where a good slice could do wonders. Nothing should take the spot of eating healthy, good for you foods that naturally help regulate hormones, but there are times where nothing but a delicious dessert and some prayer helps.
If I haven't already mentioned it, I am gluten-intolerant, so most recipes I share on G&C will be gluten-free. If you don't need any special diet changes like me, you can stick to what would be the normal ingredient. For example, in this recipe I use gluten-free cocoa sandwich cookies and their equivalent would be Oreo Cookies or their generic counter-part.
Before I share this mouth watering dessert, I said in Monday's blog that there were some exciting changes coming to Gold & Charm. When I initially started this blog all I was seriously interested in was fashion. I loved talking style, design, fashion, thrifting, and all things related to shopping. But the more I continued to blog, the more I fell in love with this platform, and found it to be so useful for more than simply clothes and design. So, over the course of the next few months, accompanied by prayer, I will be adding some additional tabs for things such as weekly devotions, dating advice, food, travel, and parenthood. They will appear as God lays it on my heart. Please keep in mind, that this is not just a plat form for me to share my heart, but for you to share yours! I love to hear thoughts, opinions, feedback, etc. Please keep it coming. Your prayers and encouragement is honestly what keeps Gold & Charm running week to week.
Enough of the emotional stuff, back to dessert! I made this for the first time for Mother's Day and I ended up making it for my Dad's birthday as well, when I was in Alabama in June. It has been a hit from the beginning, and it's one of those desserts that you can hardly leave alone. If you love chocolate and ice cream, this is for you. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it soon! Let me know what you think!
P.S. I completely forgot to take some pictures of this pie the last time I made it, so just make it your way, it's one of those throw together pies, nothing to special to look at, but it's delicious to eat! I'll try to do better next recipe I share. LOL
