Pumpkin Pie Nut Crust 

Cranberry And Pear Pie

Vinegar Pie Crust 

We celebrated our Thanksgiving a tad early this year. The first reason,

my mom was with us and we figured better to celebrate while we have her now than not at all :)

2nd reason, we will be moving the day before Thanksgiving.

So it worked out just beautifully that my mom was here

to celebrate with. She added all the delicious touches to our Thankful day that only a mom can add.

Her dishes were all her own recipes. Everyone of them had an unusual twist, still keeping

the history and rustic flavor of our ancestral traditions. You can find her recipes here. For dessert I tried some

new pie recipes. I made a pumpkin pie with a nut crust which is quite interesting.

My Honey Man has a hard

time liking pumpkin pie but this pie he surprisingly enjoyed.

The Cranberry Pear Pie was another experiment for me.

I used a traditional apple pie recipe but exchanged the

apples for pears and cranberries. It was fun and colorful for the table as well.

The little guys were so excited that they couldn’t take their naps. Clean from baths and in their

best clothes they waited and hovered around the table peering at all the decorations and table

settings. Their fingers couldn’t stay out of the little tartlets that were placed at their place settings.

It was quite a perfect evening. The one thing I would alter, is my dad being so far away. He was greatly missed.

Maybe we will have him with us this time next year.

I am so

thankful to our Lord for his abundant blessings and grace. For his righteousness and for giving

His Son to die on the cross for me.

So thankful to my parents for always teaching us to seek the Lord in all we do. Teaching us

right from wrong and to follow His ways.

So thankful for my

husband  and his wonderful love for me.

So thankful for our babies, they are the biggest blessings on this earth.

Feel free to try out these recipes. You can find my Cranberry Pear Pie recipe here

    Yes, I am still thinking about how good this was. I am glad I at least have some pictures of it.

    Where are you moving too? All of your pictures are just so lovely Marie. You always make me hungry when I come to your page. Yummy-Yum!
    I love all your backgrounds, they are so beautiful. Barry’s building me a kitchen island and I get to design the island top, so once it’s complete I’ll display some goodies on that!
    I love you dear friend! Take Care :o)

    Just popped in to check your website and found I’d been negligent in keeping up – I can’t believe how big your babies are now! Love you!
