Mom's Recipies

Mom's Recipies

Don't you love to find handwritten recipies?  My mom my Birthday Cakes for me for years...I have the memories of her preparing this cake.

It has been cold in Asheville and that certainly puts us in the mood to nest.  We had a great Pie day testing our recipies for Thanksgiving.     So we gathered our prefering my handwritten heritage recipies and my daughter, hi-tech, with her Epicurious search.

We got out the 1950's mixer because I wanted to make my pie like my mom did
             I didn't get my usual pie for my birthday so I made my mom's Lemon Meragine Pie.  Kiki said I even did the Meragine perfectly.

KiKi made her Apple Crumb pie.  Both came out fanstatic and we have just a little tweaking to do.
Ro and I had date night on Friday to see his cousin Charlotte's play.  Ro bought flowers to give her after her performance.  Best date night with my grandson.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend... Safe Travels, Di
