I used to absolutely hate mushrooms. I would pick the tiniest piece of one out of whatever it was in, with utter disdain. Then one day I liked them. I don’t remember what I ate, or who made them, but out of the blue, I decided to like them. I’m so glad I did.
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.
I have been baking so much bread lately, I’ve had to double my shopping list for baking essentials. At first I felt a little shame at the amount of flour that was being ‘heaved’ across the checkout belt, but quickly changed my mind. I’m a woman on a mission! My freezer is going to be full of all types of beautiful healthy breads because of it and for that, I will only feel warm and fuzzy thoughts.
In our home, I like to maintain at least one homemade, from scratch, baked good to have on hand for quick breakfasts and snacks at all times. When I run out, or don’t have any frozen to pull out of the freezer, I get all panicked. I know there are more pressing issues in life, but my 3 year old son likes a good snack, as do I, and I like to make sure it’s a really yummy one that he’s going to be excited to have, without realizing it’s also healthy for him at the same time.
Coming to you again, from my yeast filled kitchen, is yet another bread recipe. And why not!? I am a fan of the Pioneer Woman, follow her blog and recipes, and also enjoy a few of her ‘food & friends’ as well. Here’s a great one!
