I shared my recipe for sweet potato pie years ago on a Facebook page I once had, then I shared it on my fan page a few years ago, now finally it has made its way on the blog! What took so long you may ask…I don’t know really! Well its here now, and its a great recipe! My youngest daughter loves it! Its light and fluffy, that is what I like about it.

Meat pies or lahmacun as they are called in Turkish are my absolutely my favourite kind of pie! There are two versions you can bake them in the oven or cook top with a frying pan and lid, both ways are delicious, the one on the stove top uses a flat bread recipe, this one that I am sharing is with dough that is baked in the oven.
Lemon Meringue Pie is my husbands favourite pie, it was the first pie I ever made! Today was our anniversary and I wanted to surprise my hubby with this pie! I only made lemon pie filling from scratch a few times and many years ago….I always relied on Shirrif filling.
Its been a while now since I have made this pie, I have no idea why I was nervous about it, maybe because the filling at times gets runny and the meringue shrinks…not this time…this time it turned out perfect! Continue reading “Lemon Meringue Pie” »
My dad’s favourite pie is rhubarb pie! However he does not like strawberries mixed in with it! Well maybe after this pie he might just change his mind! I had 4 cups of cut of rhubarb, which I thought would be enough but the pan I used I guess was deep and it just didn’t look like enough filling….I had some strawberries and as much as my dad doesn’t like them….I had no choice! I sliced them strawberries up and mixed them in with the rhubarb!
I was worried that it would be too watery, I never baked anything strawberry…to my surprise it wasn’t bad at all, it turned out great! In fact last time I made rhubarb it was more messy than this one! Continue reading “Strawberry Rhubarb Pie” »
My family loves when I make them apple pie…..thing is I like Dutch apple and my hubby likes a pie crust on top! Kids like both, so this way is perfect! Making them into individual pies makes everyone happy! I make them in a Texas muffin pan, if you don’t have one I am sure a regular muffin pan would work. Continue reading “Mini Apple Pies” »
This was my first time making rhubarb pie….and preparing rhubarb for that matter! My dad loves rhubarb pie, so I was determined to make it! I am so glad I did! He loved it!
The first day the pie was a bit tangy, but by the next day it was sweet and tasted even better! Continue reading “Rhubarb Pie” »
This is our families favourite pumpkin cheesecake, reason it kinda taste like a pie hence the name ‘Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake’! We love our pumpkin pie and we love cheesecake! Since cheesecake is filled with fat and calories I make mine light so my kids can get away with more slices than one!;)
Oh and I had some leftover homemade caramel sauce that just made it even better!:)
My grandma Ruby is or was at her time the best pie maker in town! Her pies were known around the county! Of course she made them at the restaurant she owned, and made a variety of pies on a daily basis, I wasn’t even born yet! She taught me how to make pies when I was younger, she uses shortening in her pies,I do at times but I mostly use butter, I sometimes even add coconut oil…I am not afraid to experiment with pie crust or fillings for that matter. Its all in the technique…once you get that down you will become a pie making expert! I share 2 different recipes on this post, both are great, you can try either or both and see which you like best. Hope you enjoy the tutorial! Continue reading “Pie Crust” »

I will share the pie crust recipe that will make 2 pie crust, just in case you want to make an extra pie.;) Continue reading “Pumpkin Pie” »
My mom lived in Holland for 7 years and 7 years in Sweden as a kid, and while she lived there she learned how to make Dutch apple pie. In Sweden they don’t use crust, its more like apple crisp here in North America, and that is just how she has always made it, without crust. I actually prefer that way, but at times I like to make a crust, I share the recipe for the crust in the bottom of the post.
I don’t think I can never make mine like hers….no matter how many times I try…but that doesn’t stop me from making it!!:) Even though she says mine taste just like hers…..I will always like hers better!:) Is there a recipe that you make that you think your mom or someone else makes better?
