Do any of you watch American Horror Story(AHS)?  I’ve been watching the latest season “Freak Show” and I am hooked again.  Dandy, played by Finn Wittrock,  is my favorite character this season.  Wittrock plays “man child sociopath” to perfection.  I look forward to Dandy’s escapades every week 🙂
Anyway, This past episode, Dandy and his mother Gloria were having dinner at their usual opposite ends of the lavish dinning table. During the scene,  Gloria, had this picture perfect dessert on her plate.  It was a berry tart.  And while this post is not for a berry tart it is for an equally delicious  dessert… a peanut butter pie like tart.
It also happened to be my MIL’s birthday later in the week so it all seemed fitting since she too loves PB. 🙂
