Tuesdays (err… Friday) with Dorie – Thanksgiving Twofer Pie

November 29, 2008

Yeah, it’s Friday and I’m just now posting TWD. But that’s okay but the lovely TWD ladies allowed us to be late since this was a Thanksgiving pie. Vibi of La Casserole Carree chose the Thanksgiving Twofer Pie for us.

I was a little scared of this pie. It’s like a pumpkin pie on the bottom and a pecan pie on top. I like both pumpkin and pecan pies but together? Not so sure. But I went forward with it. I ended up taking it over to my mother-in-law’s for their Thanksgiving celebration and then guess what? I didn’t try it. Wanna know why? Because my sister-in-law was trying to give away her amazing orange cat named Gus so Landon and I were following around my husband going “Pleeeeeassssse?!” all night long. Alas, Gus did not come home with us. I didn’t remember my pie until we were home. 😦

I think I’m going to make it again at Christmas though because all the other TWD posts I’ve read have given it very good reviews. If you want the recipe, go visit Vibi and make sure you actually have a bite of your Twofer pie!


Cherry Pie.

June 8, 2008

In an effort to look like the perfect housewife, I attempted my first double crust pie last weekend when the husband had a long-lost buddy over. Attempted being the key word here.

Unfortunately my ALMOST BRAND NEW LAPTOP decided to go crazy and the freakin’ Dell support people told me my only option was to completely restore it back to factory condition. Sigh. I lost everything so I don’t have the recipe I used. And my touchpad still isn’t working. I do know that I put cinnamon on the cherries. Yup. That’s all I remember. That’s mommy brain for you.

The pie tasted great and that’s the most important part right?
