All opinions are mine alone. #SweetenTheSeason #CollectiveBias Toasted Coconut Pecan Pie is the condensed version of this dessert’s name.  It’s actually Toasted Coconut Pecan Pie with Caramel & White Chocolate Drizzle.  Yes, it’s a mouthful and no, it wouldn’t fit in my […]

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 […]

The Great Dollar Store Challenge – Desserts

Have I told you have much I’m loving the great dollar store challenge link up party with Barbara from The Everyday Home Blog?  You can find her here! If you recall, last month we were invited to create a project from dollar store candle holders.  I made cupcake stands.  If you missed them, here they […]

Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan Topping

I made this sweet potato pie with pecan topping for dessert last Sunday.  I had ice cream for the grands since their immature taste buds don’t appreciate the goodness of sweet potatoes yet. I found the recipe in Taste of the South.  My youngest daughter and husband requested it immediately.  And, because I usually only […]


Who doesn’t love BLT’s (bacon, lettuce and tomato)?  I guarantee you will get your BLT fix with this pie, because it includes onion and cheese, as well!  It’s a one dish dinner – my kind of weeknight cooking! I recommend using fresh, home-grown (or farmer’s market) tomatoes in this BLT pie.  Store bought just doesn’t […]

Apple Pie Milkshake

Once Christmas is over, I’m pretty much done with winter.  And considering winter didn’t begin until December 21st, I thoroughly enjoyed exactly five days of arctic chill.  What can I say?  I’m a summer girl.  I’m an I-could-live-on-an-island-year-round kind of girl. So, in honor of Groundhog Day and in preparation for summer (sometimes in the […]

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 […]
