Ham & Cheddar Quiche

I realize that I have posted multiple quiche recipes on this blog.  This is your warning – I have no shame when it comes to my love for homemade quiche, and there will likely be multiple more quiche recipes coming down the pipe in future months.  As another note of warning, I like my quiches…

Pumpkin Pie

It would not be Thanksgiving without the baking of a pumpkin pie.  This year, when I suggested branching out and experimenting with alternative pumpkin pie recipes, my Mom immediately shot me down.  We could not go through Thanksgiving without baking  our own family’s version of “Libby’s Pumpkin Pie”.  So here it is, yet another rendition…

Apple Pie

As American as apple pie!  This is a simple, classic, no frills (other then in the decoration, I simply could not resist), apple pie recipe.  It was handed down to me by my mother, who got it from her mother.  I have yet to strike out with this recipe, but I have heard my fair…

Peach Pie

Along with baking a blueberry pie, we decided upon baking a peach pie for some variety.  Peach pies, much like apple pies, straddle the beautifully tempting line between tart and sweet.  I have found that the key to a good peach pie is to have perfectly ripened fruit.  You want your peaches to be firm…

Blueberry Pie

A delightful summer treat that boarders on divine – a crisp golden crust, full of plump juicy berries, and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.  The vanilla ice-cream is a must. After all, you need a canvas for the tangy, purple syrup that seeps out of every heaping scoop of this treasured dessert.  In…

Savory Plum Tarts

I have been eyeballing this recipe all summer just waiting for the black plums to be in season so that I could finally try it out.  The wait, by the way, was worth it.  Tart, sweet, savory, and spicy, these tarts check all of the boxes, in one word – mouthwatering.  The few changes I…

Grilled Spinach Pie

A rustic spinach, egg, and cheese pie that has been baked on the grill.  You may be picking up on a pattern here – I will try to grill just about anything during the summer months to cut back on the indoor heat.  My spinach plants have also started to take over the garden, and…

Cran-Apple Slab Pie

Somewhere between bars, a cobbler, and a pie – this particular slab pie has a shortbread crust and no sides.  This might be the best apple pie I have made to date.  Although, it is nothing like a traditional apple pie, and its obscene amounts of butter make it an indulgent treat that I am…
