Italian Cookies

This is the last dessert that I made for the family reunion. I actually made this dough at Christmas time, but it makes so many I was forced to freeze a portion of the dough and use it later.

Here is the next recipe that I made for this last family reunion that Grant and I were able to attend.  This bar recipe was given to me by a previous co worker, it had another name,but I honestly can’t remember it. So our friends took to calling them Warsnick Fielder Bars.

Apple Crumb Pie

This last weekend, we went to Grant’s Family Reunion in North Carolina from Friday through Sunday morning.

So, I brought some desserts to add to the celebrations since all the main meals were already covered.  Also, the desserts I made traveled well so that is always a plus. So here is my apple crumb pie that I made the day...

Pie Crust

Sorry about the long break in posting, this is not what we meant to do! We took the time and updated the blog, which changing a lot of the photos took some time, and after that we have been super busy! Memorial day weekend we took it really easy because we knew this month of June would be NON STOP for us. So on the weekend of the first we drove to Nashville to rent a pontoon boat with Kira and Andrew. Well, it looked like it was going to rain and was forecasted so we had to reschedule for...

Christmas Gift Idea – Pie in a Jar

This year I have been trying to make as many gifts as I can without purchasing any. For some of the males in my family,I decided to make pies in a jar; if you are married to a male in my family, please don’t share so it is a surprise. Since guys are always hard to shop for unless you have a lot of money for nicer toys making them happy through their stomach seemed a good idea.
