Sweet Potato Pie

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Bear with me on today’s post as I try to type with a pinky finger covered in layer after layer of gauze, then topped off with a finger sling (what do you call these things anyway?). Word to the wise, don’t get into a fight with your vaccum cleaner…it will win! Ugh, so now all […]

Crescent Pecan Pie Bars

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

My hubby is a really big pecan pie fan, so naturally as soon as I saw this recipe I thought of him. I made these this summer to take on our beach trip and everyone loved them. They are much simpler than the traditional pecan pie bars as there’s no crust to make, you just […]

Tomato Pie

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

When I was growing up my Paw Paw was well known for his garden. Some summers I even remember him having a garden in two different locations. He’d get up early and water the plants in the backyard garden, then load up his bright green Chevy Luv pick-up truck (which had the most memorable horn […]

Blueberry Muffins

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

What is more classic than a plain ole blueberry muffin? Not much, in my opinion. I remember when I was growing up my mom made two types of muffins on a regular basis…bran muffins (I’ll share that recipe one day) and blueberry muffins. The bran muffins were always homemade but the blueberry muffins always were […]

Cinnamon Sugar “Danish”

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Variations of this recipe are all over the place, mostly in old cookbooks that I got from my grandmother when she moved. I went to visit her one day and she had a box full of cookbooks sitting in her garage and said she was fixing to take them to give away. My goodness, my […]

Pecan Pie

Friday, December 10th, 2010

This time of year something just makes me want to eat sweets…doesn’t matter what it is as long as it has LOTS of sugar in it. I can’t resist so why even try? I’ll work it all off after the start of the new year, right? So since I’m in baking overload, I made this […]

Southern Buttermilk Pie

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

If you are looking for a great last-minute dessert for Thanksgiving, this is it! Super simple to make and you only need a few ingredients. The first time I mentioned something about this dessert to people that weren’t from around here, they could not believe that “down here” we ate a pie made out of […]

Pumpkin Pie

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

What’s more Thanksgivingy (that’s a word, right?) than Pumpkin Pie? Not much that I can think of. Although when I think back to Thanksgiving when I was growing up I don’t remember ever having it. Then again, that was always the time of year when our family took our yearly vacation. When I was small […]
