Disney World! With a toddler?! Yes!! Now, I know I’m gonna hear it all(I already have) but hear me out. First of all, they’re FREE! 3 and under are free in Disney World. Second, they believe the magic, that IS Mickey (Mostly, unless you’re my […]
Peaches! We have a beautiful farm near us who has a multitude of peaches, veggies and apples in the Fall! While we’re waiting on Apple Season, (Fastly approaching to my disdain. Don’t get me wrong, we LOVE apples. It just means Winter is coming and […]
Cherries! We love cherries!
They were on sale at our grocery store so we bought up a bag. But, we never eat the whole thing, they go bad before we finish them.
What to do?
Make Cherry Pie!!!
Pitting the cherries is the hard part, or so we thought! Evie mastered it in no time!!
So, as you see, all you need is a straw and a bottle! Easy peasy!
We used a recipe we found on Pinterest. Again lol
This time from Gal Meets Food. Her site is gorgeous!
Cherry Crumble Pie
It was super easy since we decided to use a pre made crust from the store. Especially since we were making a crumb topping. If we didn’t, you bet we’d be making it from scratch!
Obviously, exercise caution when allowing a toddler near a hot stove.
We boiled down the cherry mixture and then allowed it to cool completely in the fridge.
Next, we got to work on the crumb topping.
We then filled our pre made pie crust, which we had baked a bit before filling.
And popped that baby in the oven!!
Now, I feel pretty darn silly because I didn’t take any after photos. BUT I can tell you the pie was delicious! We all loved it!
Although for me, I’d like a less crunchy texture on the crumb topping. That’s just me though. It gives it a nice ratio of smooth filling to crunchy topping!
Definitely a pie recipe worthy of those in season cherries!!
Ahh tomatoes. Our plants are huge but we have yet to see fully ripened tomatoes. We seriously can’t wait. Evie takes very good care of them, making sure they’re watered almost daily. I had to stake them with branches already because they’re getting huge and […]
For a few years now, Evie and I have been growing tomatoes. Last year we had a late start and ended up with A LOT of green tomatoes in October right before the first real freeze.
Not this time! We made sure to grab our favorites from Home Depot early! Evie’s favorite is the purple tomato, the Cherokee heirloom. We love big juicy tomatoes!
I used to eat them a lot during college. I’d bring 1-2 fairly large tomatoes, grab some salt from the cafeteria, and eat! Summer tomatoes are one of my favorite things. Even tomato sandwiches with yellow mustard, so good! Weird?
So far we’ve gotten a few blooms but no tomatoes as of yet. We can’t wait!!
