Classic Chocolate Pie

There’s nothing very fancy or complicated about a Classic Chocolate Pie recipe. There’s also nothing better than a slice of real, honest to goodness, made from scratch chocolate pie. A frozen variety or even one from the bakery just isn’t the same and to make the original takes little if no effort. Spoiler alert: I do not make my own pie crusts so that certainly saves me some time…

Chocolate Delight

I have always loved this somewhat retro dessert called Chocolate Delight…it’s creamy, full of chocolate and very decadent. If you walk into a summer get together in the south you can almost bet there will be a dish of Chocolate Delight on one of the tables, it’s just something people do when the weather gets warm and someone is asked to bring a dessert. I just love the crunch…

Cherry Berry Crunch Crumble

My Cherry Berry Crunch Crumble sort of evolved and came together over time and the end result is one of my most favorite desserts ever.

For this crumble I threw in 2 cups of strawberries and a half pint of raspberries…

Red White & Blue Pie

My Red White & Blue Pie is the perfect summertime dessert and you don’t have to wait for a holiday to indulge in this delicious treat. But I will admit that Memorial Day and the Fourth of July certainly provide a good excuse to take advantage of blueberries, strawberries and a cool, creamy layered dessert like this one. I used to make this pie quite a bit when my children were little…

Grandma Denoya’s Apple Pie

Grandma Denoya’s Apple Pie was handed down by my great grandmother, Teresa Morrisey Denoya, an Irish immigrant from County Cork, Ireland. Grandma Denoya somehow found her way to Ponca City, Oklahoma at the age of 14 and eventually married my great grandfather Francis Denoya, an Osage Indian with whom she had 6 children. There was actually a town…

Southern Peach Buttermilk Pie

My friend, Claire, emailed me last week with this buttermilk pie recipe that she found in the Dallas Morning News. The recipe was written by Jane Jarrell, and it is a masterpiece. Seriously, this is the best peach buttermilk pie I’ve ever tasted and it would work with blueberries, raspberries – the possibilities are endless. I cheated and used a couple of Pillsbury prepared pie sheets out of a box…
