We are big fans of mexican food. My kids gobble up tacos, enchiladas, and burritos. For today’s dinner, I’ve partnered up with Butterball to bring you another family favorite recipe for our Turkey Taco Pie. It’s a great way to serve up everyone’s favorite food in a new way, helping to spice things up. Yes, […]

When I was a kid there were more than a few meals my mom made that I absolutely hated. One that I absolutely loved was her enchilada pie. So, I’m going old school and bringing back Mom’s Enchilada Pie.  Only this time I’m changing it up a bit. Instead of ground beef, I’m being resourceful […]

This month is bound to blow by and my thoughts are 100% occupied by Thanksgiving. We are planning out our Thanksgiving menu, and the aftermath. I know that most people don’t think about the leftovers, but I do. For one thing, I need to have posts ready to go to help others use up their […]

Tis the season of pies! Are you as excited about Thanksgiving dessert as me? I think pie is my favorite part of the meal. And pumpkin to boot. I could eat about 7 of these mini pumpkin pies myself. Here are a few versions of the beloved pumpkin pie: Mini Pumpkin Pies in a Muffin […]

Jam-Filled Pie Crust Cookies

by Lindsey on September 19, 2012

We’ve been baking a lot of pies lately. My youngest daughter came up behind me when I was rolling out pie crust and asked if she could get out the cookie cutters. I remembered being a little girl and loving the pie dough scraps that my mother and grandmother would lay in a pan and […]

Creamy Peppermint Bark Tart

by Lindsey on December 8, 2011

For days I’ve been dreaming of turning my favorite Christmas candy into a creamy tart. Oh…I love peppermint bark. I finished up the breakfast dishes, put a movie on for the kids, and got to work. My kids ran back and forth checking on the tart’s progress; sampling a spoonful of pudding or eating a […]

I love to bake in muffin tins. They are cute, bite-sized, and cook up so much faster. I’ve shared Muffin Tin Meatloaves and Pop Up Pancakes in Muffin Tins. Today, I’ve baked cute mini pumpkin pies in a muffin tin. They make for perfect individual portions. These would be a great way to prepare your […]

Dreamy Watermelon Dessert

by Marie on July 22, 2010

While we’re talking watermelons today, remember this fun post for Watermelon Pie we shared last year? It’s so dreamy and just the thing for a summer party.

This Key Lime Pie looks almost too pretty to eat. But Two Peas and Their Pod have given us a recipe that is almost too easy to make. If you’re a fan of pie, then this one should be on your list!

I’m contributing over at Alpha Mom’s – Once Upon a Holiday again. Come see how I’m making a yummy Valentine Vanilla Pudding Pie for dessert!

It’s Wednesday and the day before Thanksgiving.  I know.  You probably already have your menus planned.  Have you baked your pumpkin pie yet? I’ll let you in on a little secret–I don’t like pumpkin pie….unless it’s the one pictured below.  This pie changed my mind about pumpkin pie forever. Last year as I was casually […]

In 1972, Ian Dowding and Nigel Mackenzie of The Hungry Monk Restaurant in East Sussex, England, created one of my favorite desserts–Banoffee Pie.  (You can find their original recipe here on their website.) Most recipes from the UK use Digestive Biscuits or even better–Hobnobs, neither of which I have on hand.  Instead, I opt for […]

One of my summertime childhood memories is eating the yummy watermelon sherbet dessert at Friendly’s restaurant. I loved it, so I decided to try to replicate this dessert for my own kids’ summertime memories! I made some “watermelon pie” for our 4th of July feast this year…to great success! My 4-year-old daughter loved it – […]

Fresh Cherry Pie

by Lindsey on July 8, 2009

I live in a rural community not too far from some lovely fruit orchards.  A few weeks ago I took my kids for a drive to look at the cherry trees.  We’ve been watching them since the early spring when buds first started forming.  We marveled at the lovely blossoms in late April.  Now the […]

Rhubarb mixed with strawberries is a perfect combination, a little tart and very sweet. And with rhubarb in season, I had to make a yummy dessert. I’ve shared my Mom’s delicious Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Cake before, so I tried making a pie this time, perfect for a Mother’s Day dessert. Recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Pie: […]
