Cherry Pie

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

This is my go-to recipe for cherry pie, based off of the one in Joy of Cooking. I either use an all butter crust also adapted from Joy of Cooking (see bottom of the post), or I cheat and get one of the refrigerated versions, which aren't quite as ...

Apple Pie

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

A delicious apple pie to use up some of the apples from the CSA. :-) I just used my go-to recipe from Joy of Cooking, blogged here.

Key Lime Swirled Cheesecake Bars

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

These awesome cheesecake bars are based off of this recipe by Baking Bites. I made my own modifications and will be taking the pan into work tomorrow. :-) I love the refreshing zing of key limes in just about anything, but this lime curd is an ...

Pastel Berry Pie

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

This is a beautiful, light, fresh pie that's just perfect for spring and summer. It can be made with just about any type of berry. The recipe originally appeared in the May 1986 issue of Sunset magazine. My mother found that adding gelatin made the pie set up ...

Happy Independence Day!

Monday, July 4th, 2011

A happy Independence Day :-) I have some fun socks that I wore today: Breakfast was some delicious duck eggs from the most recent CSA box and some pan fried diced ham. Today was a gorgeous summer day and we enjoyed walking around some and puttering cleaning up around ...

Some Weekend Baking

Thanksgiving Dinner and Pumpkin Pie

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, and finished it off with pumpkin pie. I got some organic canned pumpkin this year that just seemed much tastier than the usual kind. I follow the recipe on the Libby can, but modify the spices to our tastes. Thanksgiving Dinner Brined turkey with ...

Blackberry Pie

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

This is a wonderful pie recipe courtesy of The Joy of Cooking, originally written for blueberries, but I made it with blackberries tonight. We froze a lot of blackberries and blueberries late last summer to use throughout the winter and spring, and we're slowly but surely working through them. ...

Apple Pie

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

This is another wonderful recipe from The Joy of Cooking. I used Fuji apples, and closer to 8 cups of slices (though I only used 4 giant apples :-) ) as we like our pies brimming with fruit. I should have added a bit ...
