In Honor of 𝜋 Day: Buttermilk Pie


Today is 3/14, which means it is pie day (3.14159). So here’s a pie recipe. It is the easiest pie recipe you will ever make. Our pastor’s wife, Barbara Miller, introduced Christy and me to it. To be honest, I hate coconut — not because of the taste, but because it feels like you are eating hair. When Barbara put this piece of pie in front of me, I was afraid I was going to have...

Thanksgiving Breakfast


This morning my family will wake up to this breakfast, which is also easily served on Thanksgiving morning. I make everything the night before, put it all in the fridge, and then put it in the oven with minimal extra prep in the morning. Both of these recipes work together. They are both custards. One is savory and one is sweet. They bake at the same temperature for about the same time. Sausage...



This is the homemade gravy I make every Thanksgiving by demand of the family. Remember, the flour must go in the melted butter and cook before adding stock. That’s the key to avoiding lumps. Let the flour absorb the fat from the butter as it cooks and the flour will not clump together. Homemade Gravy Ingredients: 1 stick unsalted butter 1 medium sized sweet onion, finely chopped 1/4 c flour...
