The last minute trip to San Diego and the Luscious chocolate pie to die for!


La Jolla beach

We’re back!!It was a last minute decision,but it worth it!! A week in San Diego,away from the extreme heat of Vegas!! The mercury here in Vegas reached 124 F,whereas in San Diego was only 76 F! A paradise on earth!!The morning breeze,the beach,Anna’s laughter from happiness..! It was amazing..!


Old Town San Diego

I’ve never been in San Diego before,and I wanted so bad to be next to the beach!!You see, I grew up in a small city,10 minutes from the sea and it became one with me..! The Old Town was so festive,full of colors,the food was so delicious!


Sea World


San Diego Zoo

We spent July 4th at  Seaworld! Places like these makes you feel kid again!!Actually,most of the time I feel like a kid 🙂 As always,after 4 hours of walking in a Park like that,I want to eat a snack,so I found this pack of snacks,which were very delicious and light! We found a small cafe-restaurant called cafe-Socrates,with   Mediterranean cuisine. The service was excellent and the food very good!But,unfortunately,there was nothing GF,as far as the desserts and I was dreaming cakes,pies and every single sweet that exists in this world!

So, while we were sitting in the terrace with George of the hotel,we’ve been dreaming of GF desserts..We never stop thinking of new recipes!I have to admit that we are a GREAT team! It came to us! A moist chocolate pie with bananas!!After that 6 days chocolate withdraw,FINALLY,I’m going to make a dessert! Since I was kid,baking and cooking,became part of my life and to me is strange when I don’t cook!Even when I was pregnant,I couldn’t stop cooking and baking,and George was begging me to sit..! Sweet memories..! 🙂

Pour the mixture and bake for 15-20 minutes. The pie should be trembled in the middle.

For the glaze:

In a saucepan,melt 2.5 oz of unsweetened chocolate with 1/4 heavy cream and pour it on top of the chocolate pie.


Refrigerate for 2 hours.You can keep it in the fridge,and when you wan to serve it just let it stand for few minutes,or warm it in the microwave. The results are amazing!
