  • Friday Pieday: Week 5: Swedish Apple PieThis was an easy, easy pie to make. In fact, for all of you that are terrified of making pie, or crust, or baking in general, this is a good place to start. It would also be an ideal pie to introduce children to baking (with the exception of peeling...
  • Friday Pieday: Week 4: Lemon Pecan PieLemon Pecan Pie is actually less daring than it sounds. In fact, it is one of my favorite pies. Since I was going to be having company on Friday Pieday this week, I decided that I would serve up a tried and true recipe. I didn’t want to subject...
  • Friday Pieday: Week 6: Spicy Raisin Custard PieI have a confession to make. I changed the name of this recipe. Mostly because it had “sour cream” in the name and I just couldn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I like sour cream in moderation, but I don’t want to know that it is...

  • Happy New YearHello? Anyone there? I’ve had it on my heart to start blogging again… and is there a better time than on New Year’s Day? Yes. On January 2nd. Fashionably late. I already fell off the face of the blogearth a year ago, so what’s...

      Ok, so I love me some pecan pie. It is my go-to nut pie. But where on earth has this walnut pie been all of my life?! No, seriously. It is dangerous. And now ranks up there with my all-time favorite pies. If you are looking for a little something...

  • Catching Up: September 2011September. …and so it began. Morning sickness. I decided with Jon being gone, I’d stay with my parents for a little bit. It wouldn’t hurt to have an extra pair of hands (or two) on the days that were more difficult and unpleasant. O...
