I have memories of my mom and our next door neighbor, Marla, standing in our kitchen making dozens and dozens of pies. This always happened a few days before Thanksgiving. The kitchen was a mess, the house smelled amazing, and the tone was always joyful. As I grew older I remember them sending me on errands to get missing ingredients. One of my mom's favorite pies was Marla's famous razzleberry pie. Instant Clear Gel This recipe is inspired by Marla's recipe - with just one tweak. Her . . .
Apple pie is one of those pies that even pie haters love. It's always good to have a nice, classic (but amazing) apple pie recipe in your recipe box. This is one I have been making for years. It's my kids favorite kind of pie. WELL scratch that, they really like chocolate pie. I'd say apple and chocolate pie tie in the running for very favorite pie. The ingredients are for one pie, and same with the instructions in the recipe card. But if you have mini pie plates, or mini pie liners feel . . .
EVERY Thankgiving my husband asks for pecan pie. He comes from southern roots and loves ( LOVES) a good Peeee-can Pie. Or is it Pe-con Pie? Well either way, he loves it. I've tried making them all, the chocolate pecan pie, the "light karo-syrup" versions, the "dark karo-syrup" versions, the grocery store versions (wink wink) in the end he has decided that he loves the ol' fashion (nothing crazy added in) Pecan Pie's. The Pie Crust I like to make my own pie crusts. Why? Because they are . . .
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is famous for it's creamy, tart and sweet filling. Pair it with Grandma's flakey crust and you have a winner.

It's been handed down, tried and tested. It's hands down the best! Since sometimes I struggle with finding rhubarb so I've altered this recipe so it can be enjoyed all year round and call it our tart . . .
I LOVE my Grandma's pies. I especially go gaga over her Cherry Pie. However, I've never really had to make it- because she has always made it. One year I was not going to be spending thanksgiving with her so I received a lesson before hand on how Grandma makes her pies, and her recipes. She is famous for her homemade pie crust! Like seriously famous. This homemade pie crust surprisingly easy and creates a light, flakey, buttery pie crust that pairs perfect with all pies! I always expect . . .

I grew up on homemade jam. Freezer jam, canned jam. Strawberry, raspberry, apricot, peach. It was a wonderful part of my childhood and one I couldn't let my kids not experience also. Making homemade jam is one of my favorite things to do for them. I also love doing it because its so much better for my kids. I know EXACTLY whats going into their little growing bodies. It's not full of processed or preservatives. Freezer jam consists of 3 things. Fresh fruit, sugar (a preservative) and pectin . . .
