For Mikey and my loves, Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie.

I don't know Jennifer Perillo. I've never met her or spoken to her. I've never shaken her hand or eaten a meal with her. It doesn't matter. When I heard that her loving husband, Mikey, suddenly died the other day, I was rocked. Their story is much like my own. They met at 17 (we met at 18). They have two little girls. Ditto. To lose a loved one is heartbreaking. To lose the one you love most of all, at such a young age, is a tragedy. Her words jumped out at me from my screen and broke my heart. "He is gone and my heart is shattered in a million pieces."

Jennifer blogged and asked that in order to honor Mikey's life, and those of the ones we hold closest to our hearts, to make a Peanut Butter Pie today. So I did. I don't have a springform pan at the cabin. I have no food processor or kitchen aid. But I have my girls, and my love of 16 years. So I made this, very messy, very sloppy, Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie. For Mikey.
