Pie Time

I guess it has been pie season at our house. I have been baking several types. The above is a traditional apple made with fresh granny smiths. It was for Father's Day. My uncle who is 70 rode his motorcycle from Texas to Alabama and stayed with my mom for a few weeks at the lake. Apple is one of his favorites and mine. 
Next up was Lemon Meringue.  Made it the following weekend for a family gathering. It last about 10 minutes once it is cut. It is an old family recipe. My great Aunt says it came from her grandmother, trying to figure out how far back that is makes my head hurt a bit. It has a lemon curd style filling and just melts in your mouth.
Then for the 4th of July I made a favorite from my childhood. Banana Split Pie. Should have throw a few blue berries on top for the red white and blue but I love it without them. it is light and cool for the hot southern July days.
 Finally, I was able to get the cording on my camp fob last Sunday while we were driving o the lake. Attached it to my shinny new pair of Dovo's from Camp as well. Sadly the camp trip is the last time I have really been able to stitch with any consistence. I started Fredrick and Fredricka over the 4th while we were at the lake. I plan to have them live there when they are complete so it seemed like the right place to start stitching them. I have only gotten about half way around the boarder  in one color so there really isn't much to show there yet. 677 really doesn't pop on the fabric until it has company. Guess that is all for my update. A lot more pie time than stitching time for me. Hope you are all getting more stitching time in than me.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Wow Pam your pies look and sound yummy!! I love to bake but don't do it very often anymore because my hubby has diabetes so doesn't need the temptation. Your post has me thinking about my Grandma's Sour Cream Raisin Pie. It may sound odd but it's rich and sweet...I love it!

  2. Yum the pies look great! Unless it has a graham cracker crust, I don't make pie!

  3. I just know those pies were wonderful!! Had been wondering what you had been up to!! Visiting the lake in the hot I guess!! lol
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Those pies look delicious!! Lemon Meringue is one of my favorites! And you are always welcome to come bake in my home. :)

  5. I would love a slice of the lemon please. They all look absolutely delicious.

  6. Okay, your fob looks good, but oh my goodness ~ those pies!!!! I think I gained 10lbs just looking at them. Now pardon me while I go find a rag to wipe the drool off of my screen....
