Lemon Blueberry Cream Pie

Lemon Blueberry Cream Pie

The past couple of months have been tough ones for Jocelyn and I.  Just a few short weeks ago, we said goodbye to our adorable, not-quite 2 year old  nephew/cousin Duncan.  This past Easter weekend, we also said goodbye to our mom and grandma.  It only seems fitting that today we should dedicate this post to her- especially since that is where we first acquired our love of cooking and good food.


Mom was a self-taught cook before the days of the cooking channels and ready-made mixes.  Even in her last days, she still enjoyed watching cooking shows and

Rhubarb Cheesecake Pie

Last week on Facebook I showed you some beautiful rhubarb I was so excited about.  I wasn't positive what I wanted to do with it, but I knew it needed to be wonderful because I was so tempted to make my favorite Rhubarb Custard Pie instead of trying something new.

Rhubarb Cheesecake Pie

I decided to go to my mom's recipe boxes because I knew she loved rhubarb as much as me.  Sure enough I found a wonderful recipe I had never had before.  I tweaked it a little and came up with this Rhubarb Cheesecake Pie; a delicious combination of two favorites-

Cream Cheese Pie (Simple Cheesecake)


Today is my hubby’s birthday; tonight we will celebrate with Pasta Carbonara and Cream Cheese Pie – his favorites.  Every year I ask what he wants for dinner on his birthday, but every year I already know the answer.  He loves this cream cheese pie topped with strawberries.  The recipe came from his mother and is a basic, simple cheese cake.   Fortunately for me it’s easy to make and always works when I need to get on his good side. 😉  I have tried a few times to pass off a store-bought graham cracker crust, but that’s always a
