For more than 20 years my husband worked in radio and TV news. He was blessed to work with some of the most dedicated, fun and talented people in the industry. He still enjoys many lasting friendships from those early days and one such favorite ‘radio star’ is Beth Green. Beth is a lovely person inside and out, and she’s also a talented entertainer, seamstress, blogger, singer (she sang at our wedding almost 26th years ago), and apparently she’s a pretty good cook! Beth also reads SRFD and was kind enough to share this German Chocolate Pie recipe with me.
Beth wrote: “(This recipe) was given to me by Mrs. Joy Jessee, a member of Dryden United Methodist Church (Dryden, Virginia) where my husband Joe was pastor from 1975 to 1980. She brought the pie to us as a welcome treat the week we moved into the parsonage. I asked for the recipe and she was gracious enough to share it. I told her I wasn’t very good at pie-making and she promised this one would be good. She was right! It is one of Joe’s favorites!”
You should also take a minute to visit her blog Life in the “Greenhouse” where she entertains with “Random thoughts from a preacher’s wife…about life, love, work, food, church and many other things.” I love her uplifting stories and enjoy her ability to laugh at herself whenever possible.
Do you like chocolate, and coconut, and pecans? If you answered yes, you will love this rich, creamy, nutty delicious pie. Being a chocolate lover myself, I am here to tell you this is up there as one of my favorites so far this year. It’s great!
