Fresh Blueberry Pie

Blueberry Pie

This Fresh Blueberry Pie can be made with fresh or frozen berries.  The streusel topping adds extra texture and flavor.Which do you prefer – a fruit crisp or a fruit pie?  On one hand I love a fruit crisp because I love the streusel like topping that goes on top of it.  I love the sweet crunchiness of it.  On the other hand I love a good pie too and a nice buttery, flaky crust.  Well, with today’s recipe I no longer have to choose one over the other.  I [Continue Reading…]

Sour Cream Raspberry Pie

Sour Cream Raspberry Pie

This sour cream raspberry pie is the perfect combination of flavors and textures.  Eat it warm or cold! We planted raspberries in our garden for the first time this year.  The first year your harvest is not very big and each visit to the new plants to see how they are doing yields a small handful of raspberries which promptly get eaten.  Not really enough to do much with other than just eat and enjoy.  But I can’t wait until next year when they really produce.  We’ve got some new [Continue Reading…]

Raspberry Cream Meringue Pie

Raspberry Meringue Pie

Raspberry Cream Meringue Pie is light and sweet.  A pretty and delicious treat for your Valentine dessert. One of my favorite desserts, EVER, is this lovely lemon angel pie.  We have been making it at our house for almost 30 years and it is still my favorite lemon dessert. One of my favorite parts of it is the meringue crust the filling is put into.  I am a big meringue fan.  Remember those meringue heart shaped cookies I shared a few weeks ago?  Another favorite.

The Perfect Key Lime Pie

Key Lime PIe

This truly is the PERFECT Key Lime Pie.   It has just the right amount of lime goodness and the texture is smooth and creamy! With the few inklings of Spring we have been having (that means we have actually seen the sun here in the NW), tulips in the grocery store and everything green on Pinterest I have been totally craving key lime. Maybe the fact that a Caribbean vacation sounds really good right about now too has added to the key lime craving. In order to curb that [Continue Reading…]

Strawberry Cream Pie

Strawberry Cream Pie_0004(2)

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie.  I first shared it back in June of 2008.  This one is so deserving of a pretty redo and I have given the recipe a little tweak. June is strawberry season here in Portland and this year the strawberry crop has been awesome.  Our own little strawberry patch in the garden has been producing like crazy and every morning I can go out and pick a bowl full.  Because of that I’ve been able to make a lot of our strawberry favorites [Continue Reading…]
