A Pie for Mikey - Peanut Butter Pie
Peanut Butter Pie for Mikey

Late one night, I read many tweets that @JenniferPerillo's husband died suddenly. I've never met Jennifer, but my heart ached for her and her two young children. If you read her tweets, one minute she was canning vegetables, and then next she said, "He's gone. Any my heart is shattered in a million pieces."

Jennie posted that she wanted everyone to make Peanut Butter Pie to honor her late 51 year old husband and to "share it with someone you love. Then hug them like there's no tomorrow because today is the only guarantee we can count on."

A Pie for Mikey - Peanut Butter Pie
The food blogger community came together to make many pies and so many virtual hugs for Jennie. The Food Network and CNN have articles (just don't read some of the completely idiotic comments on CNN). For the recipe, please see Jennie's blog (I made half the recipe for two 4" springforms).

Watch this beautiful video by WhiteonRiceCouple. Bring a hankie.

Hugs to you Jennifer Perillo and your family. My deepest sympathies.
Pin It!

What a very sweet (no pun intended at all) way to honor someone. I would hope that everyone would be so kind should the tables be turned. Thoughts and prayers go out to them...
