Happy Mother's Day

From my friend Ali who just welcomed her first child to Kristy who's missing her Mom today and of course to my own Mom, I wish everyone a very happy Mother's Day today. The pic at left is of Maw in her heyday. When my Mom was diagnosed with diabetes, she fashioned some flawless reduced-sugar recipes....this one for her Chocolate Pie comes courtesy of the recipe book Kristy put together for Keith.

Alberta's Chocolate Pie


2 4oz boxes of sugar-free chocolate pudding mix
2 cups of skim milk or evaporated skim milk
1 cup cold coffee
3-4 packs of sweetener
1 tsp of vanilla


Mix quickly then beat well. Fold in one cup of Lite Cool Whip. Pour into crust(any kind you like). Chill 3-4 hours.

This was one of my faves. I liked a cookie-crumb crust but you can use any pie shell. Just make sure you bake it! Aces, Mom.....

I'd also be remiss not to mention Betty White KILLING it as host of the SNL mother's Day episode last night....Click on the title of this post for the link to a clip that didn't make the final show...Debbie Downer featuring all of my fave SNL gals, the legendary Miss Betty and a cold bottle of Pinot Grigio. That would go so well with Betty's Muffin...Happy Mother's Day!
