My inspiration to pursue different things comes from the oddest places. After watching the 1992 Olympics, I became inspired to try figure skating. When I read about one of the twin sisters in the “Sweet Valley High” book series working on the high school newspaper, I thought I would give journalism a try.
And as a result of watching the main character in a movie serve up slices of a pie called Chocolate Strawberry Oasis, I strolled down the aisles of the grocery store looking for the ingredients to make this dessert myself.
I found a recipe for this pie online and I faithfully followed this recipe in hopes of producing a sweet treat that another character in the movie described as “dark and bittersweet, like an old love affair.”
The product of my efforts did not bring these hopes to fruition, but I do have a fun story to share.
First, the recipe instructed me to melt a bar of chocolate with some butter. Easy enough. Next I was to mix in a package of marshmallows. The package I had was enormous so I just put in a cup of mini marshmallows.
As I stirred the marshmallows and the little, white puffs disappeared, the chocolate mixture expanded. I was pretty content with what I saw.
