Joe’s Stone Crab Key Lime Pie (copycat)

One of my favorite restaurants is Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami (not to be confused with Joe’s Crab Shack). Will Smith once said that Joe’s was his favorite place to eat.  For one hundred years, Miami natives and tourists alike have dined alongside celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Muhammad Ali and Jennifer Lopez.  Joe’s has been […]

Hit or Miss – Root Beer Float Pie

I was recently browsing Pinterest for a lite dessert that I could serve on Easter Sunday along side of Dixie’s Pecan Pie Cobbler.  You can find the cobbler recipe here! I always try to offer at least one dessert that is lower in calories or fat just in case someone is actually watching what they […]

I found the recipe in Taste of the South.  My youngest daughter and husband requested it immediately.  And, because I usually only […]

Grandma’s Apple Tarts and Tea Cakes

When I think of Grandma, I can’t help but think of apple tarts, tea cakes and hoe cakes.  You can find the hoe cake recipe here. Grandma Elrod is my mom’s mother.  She passed away when I was 18.  It was my first experience of losing someone that I dearly loved and it was difficult […]

Skinny Cherry Cheese Pie

I don’t know about you, but I tend to gain a few lbs. during the winter.  I guess I’m not as active and I tend to eat more hardy type meals when it’s cold outside.  It’s too hot in the south to eat during the summer! Spring usually finds me trying to lose those pesky […]

Crumb-Top Apple Pie

September and October is all about apples!  How do you like them apples?     I’ve had this recipe for over 30 years and it’s always my first choice when I want to make a pie.  It’s my hubby’s very favorite apple pie! This recipe resides in an old index card notebook and is stained […]
