I love to cook and and I love to read. As I was sitting on the beach in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. reading my latest novel, a "novel" idea came to me. I decided I would start a blog which combined both passions where I review a book, and also write about a new dish I cook. The food will be inspired by either the food mentioned in the book, or inspired by the geography and culture in the book. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie - Enough Said.
1 1/4 cups of pecan halves
1 cup of light corn syrup
1 cup of sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 eggs beaten lightly
2 Tablespoons of melted butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 10 inch (9 oz) pre-made graham cracker crust (I know, not traditional, but it is good!)
Mix together the corn syrup, sugar, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Then stir in the pecans and chocolate chips. Pour into the pie shell and bake for about 45-55 minutes on 350 degrees. If the top looks nice and brown, go ahead and take it out, if you overbake it too much, it will be hard to cut.
