Super-Simple, Creamy-Dreamy, Whippy-Hippy, Cherry-Cheese Pie!

The name of this pie is really outlandish, I know. But it has a lot of elements that make it more than just “cherry pie”, or “cherry cheese pie”. It just doesn’t quite cover it. It’s simple, creamy, whippy, walnut-y, with cherries and cream cheese. What was I supposed to call it? There’s no reason for the ‘Hippy’ part. It just rhymed with Whippy. And I suppose it doesn’t do your hips any favors either.

Let’s get Christmas cozy! Starring ‘moi’, with my very first attempt at quilting.

The holiday season makes me love being at home and being warm and cozy in the evenings. I change all of our bedding over to flannel sheets in November already, and I’m one of those people who has a Christmas bedding set for my bed, because decorating isn’t enough. I have to sleep in Christmas too.

Cheddar & Chive Spicy Quick Bread

Also known as: My substitute for cornbread.

I’m just going to come out and say it. I don’t like cornbread. I will eat it when it’s served as part of a meal in a restaurant or at someone’s home, but I don’t choose to make it or eat it. I think it’s because it’s not as big of a ‘thing’ in Canada, where I grew up. I actually have no memories of even eating it before I met my husband. Now that I’m living in the States, I feel like it’s everywhere, and it is definitely, a ‘thing’. I’ve tried mixes, making it from scratch, and of course eating it at a friends home where it was a sworn “best cornbread in the world”, from a great grandmothers recipe. I still don’t get it. I’m sorry. I hope this doesn’t mean my greencard will not be renewed.

My all time, favorite, pie crust

Happy day after Thanksgiving! Are you still lying on the floor with your pants unbuttoned, wishing you hadn’t eaten so much yesterday? Hopefully you had a great day, ate well and spent some time with loved ones.  I know it’s a little soon to be thinking about making more meals, especially when most of our fridges are full of leftovers, but perhaps a turkey pot pie is just the thing to use up some of that turkey. And any good pot pie starts with a pie crust. A good one!
