Vanilla Cream Pie

A few weeks ago I bought a copy of Ladies Home Journal and noticed they had a new feature where along with a recipe, they included a story about its origin. In this case, the recipe was for a vanilla cream pie and the author of the story recalled how her father said it was […]

triple berry mousse tart

If you have a celebration coming up or are just looking for a flashy but easy fruit dessert, I heartily recommend the Triple Berry Mousse Tart from Orchard’s Finest.   After trying it this week, Todd proclaimed it one of the best desserts ever.  (!!) Now he could have meant one of one hundred best […]

Favorite Millionaire Pie

Millionaire Pie

Today’s recipe is an old family favorite and one I don’t make often enough. It’s called Millionaire Pie, and I first tried it years ago at a cafeteria here in Texas. I like to play around with the recipe and prepare it various ways, but today I made the traditional version with crushed pineapple, sweetened […]

Mango Pie

This weekend I had dinner at a Cuban restaurant in Atlanta. The dessert offerings were key lime pie and mango pie, but it was one of those dinners where everyone eats so much that by the dessert hour, no one really cares about it no matter how enticing it sounds on the menu. But …

Pineapple Sour Cream Pie

After all that talk about Top Chef: Just Desserts, I missed it! We recorded the show, but after settling in to watch the Top Chef finale, I drifted off to sleep before the new Top Chef was even announced (though I did wake up briefly to find out who it was). So I’m a day […]

Ritz Cracker Pie

One of my mom’s favorite pies which definitely falls into the “better than the sum of its parts” category is Luby’s “Butternut Brownie Pie” which has nothing to do with brownies at all. It’s a pie made with baked egg whites, graham crackers and lots of nuts and it’s delicious. I like it so much […]

Grapefruit Coconut Angel Pie

Here’s the Grapefruit and Coconut Angel Pie from last night. The picture’s not that great because I took it rather hastily during an Academy Awards commercial break. And how about those Oscars, eh? I was happy with all the winners, even though a lot few of them weren’t on my picks list. This year, I’m going to […]
