When I cook I usually don't measure. So now that my babies are all grown up, I started to cook all their favorite foods with measuring cups, spoons, pencil, and a notebook by my side, recording every step for future references. Dinner table is that special place where all the family gathers to exchange events of the day, to share special moments, and to make important announcement. And if good home cooked food is served on that table, these gatherings become even more precious and memorable.

Valenties' Day Test Run- BANANA PEACH CREAM PIE
It is less than a month till Valentine's Day, so I decided to do a test run of the dessert. I want something creamy, rich in flavor, easy to make, yet something that will stay on our taste buds memory for a long time! Cream pie was the first thing that popped in my mind. Store bought pie crust is already a shortcut. Than I can go two ways: either cook the pastry cream or just make store bought pudding pie filling. And there are so many decadent flavors to choose from.
For the test run I decided to cook vanilla and chocolate pastry cream and for the fruit, bananas and peaches. But for the real deal I will go with strawberry and coconut pastry cream; as for the fruit, bananas inside and fresh strawberries for decoration. Yea, the plan sounds perfect, will let you know how it went.
Let's get cooking!
