Apple Pie

I’m sharing this basic apple pie recipe with you today.  I have been making apple pies for over 40 years (yes, I am that old) and I never was taught to cook the apples first.  Often, my pies would have hard apples inside or it would get too brown from over baking. This recipe will…

Pumpkin Pie in a Cupcake

It wouldn’t seem like Fall if there weren’t hundreds or even thousands of pumpkin recipes floating around on Facebook or Pinterest.  Chances are you’ve tried some of them and they turned out great and others…not so great.  Which is why I like to try out recipes before I share them with you. Today, I tried…
