Pie is my thing.  I happen to have been born on National Pie Day.  Every year for my birthday when my mom asked what I wanted to have for my birthday cake, I would inevitably request something in a crust—maybe a cheese cake (BTW, why do they call it cake? That has always bugged me) […]

Life has been hectic around here.  I’ve been filling life with things like teaching cooking classes at one of Harmons Grocery cooking schools, volunteering at the Fujilings’ elementary school, driving the girls to and from piano and dance lessons, etc.  I looked at my planner the other day and thought, “Who got a hold of […]

Happy 2015 everyone!  I must say that I’m happy to greet the New Year and shoo out the old.  The end of 2014 about did me in.  The Sunday before Christmas the flu hit me like a wrecking ball, and I’ve been in bed ever since.  Have you heard about the mutating influenza strains?  Yeah, […]

Happy National Pie Day!  To celebrate today, I thought it would be appropriate to share a recipe from the woman who brought me into this world.  My mom and I made this pie, a White Chocolate, Orange, and Raspberry dream, when we were visiting for Christmas.  I have many memories of watching my mom make […]
