A few days ago, Chris requested that I make something with peanut butter. Since I was in the mood to make some kind of dessert, I decided to make a peanut butter pie. I Googled “peanut butter pie” and the results were a little puzzling. The internet was buzzing with many food bloggers making peanut butter pies “for Mikey.” After further research, I learned that last month prominent food blogger Jennie Perillo’s husband, Mikey, suffered a heart attack and died leaving her to raise their young children alone. To honor Mikey, Jennie wrote a touching tribute on her blog, part of which I share with you.
For those asking what they can do to help my healing process, make a peanut butter pie this Friday and share it with someone you love. Then hug them like there’s no tomorrow because today is the only guarantee we can count on.
