Caramel apple pie cheesecake bars – honestly, can a dessert get any more “Fall” than that? 

In my efforts to combine 2 of my favorite desserts (apple pie and cheesecake) I ended up with these delicious bars. I made this recipe with 100% whole grains, but I’ve also made them gluten-free as well — so many options, depending on your preferences and the ingredients you have on hand!

Dave and I LOVE all types of pies — however, we really love fruit pies!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, my rhubarb plants are growing like crazy, which means I’m freezing and baking with lots of rhubarb!

I recently made one of my favorite strawberry-rhubarb pies, and when I realized this super simple recipe wasn’t on my blog, I figured it was the perfect time to share!

Black Bottom Pie

One of my favorite refrigerator pies is Black Bottom Pie — and today, I’m sharing the delicious from-scratch recipe my mom and grandma have been making for years.

And if you’re not up for a completely from-scratch recipe, I’m also sharing a much simpler pudding pie recipe that tastes almost the same!

Mini Breakfast Pies

These mini breakfast pies are a quick, filling, protein-packed meal that would work any time of the day (in my opinion).

You can customize the ingredients to fit your family’s tastebuds and I’m certain you could easily make a double batch for a larger group… or just for more leftovers the next day!

Pie is one of my all-time favorite foods — and I’d be hard-pressed to find a variety I didn’t love!

So today, since it’s prime “pie making season”, I figured it was time for me to compile a list of some of my most favorite pies — just in case any of you share my love for this delicious food!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Not only is this Chocolate Peanut Butter pie completely delicious, it also earned me “Mom Of The Year” because I let Nora help, and “Wife Of The Year” because three of Dave’s favorite foods are chocolate, peanut butter, and pie 🙂

Not bad for a simple no-bake pie!

A couple weeks ago, Nora helped me make a pie for “pi day”… and wouldn’t you know, our compilation of super simple ingredients ended up tasting REALLY good!

If you’re looking for a refreshing no-bake dessert for tonight (or right now), give this triple layer pie a try.

A Simpler Chicken Pot Pie

Over three years ago, I posted a recipe for Old Fashioned Chicken Pot Pie — and it’s been a big traffic generator ever since.

It’s one of our all-time favorite recipes — and today, I’m sharing a simpler version of almost the exact same recipe.

Bumbleberry Pie

posted by Andrea | 09/27/2013 | 12 comments

Bumbleberry pie is one of my favorite pies to make; especially this time of year after I’ve picked and frozen all sorts of delicious fruits throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall. The best part about making any Bumbleberry dessert is that you can use whatever berries or fruit you have on hand — even frozen fruit!

If you love pie, you won’t want to miss today’s recipe post 🙂

My Favorite Strawberry Pie

If given a choice between any dessert and strawberry pie, I will probably choose the strawberry pie every time… I love strawberry pie!

My recipe for strawberry pie is so quick, so simple, and so delicious. If you’ve ever been intimidated by making homemade pie, this is a fabulous recipe to experiment with — it’s almost impossible to ruin.

Pumpkin Pie Delight Dessert

posted by Andrea | 11/22/2011 | 14 comments

It’s Thanksgiving week — which means my mouth is already starting to water for the huge Thanksgiving dinner we’ll be having on Thursday afternoon. I’m bringing a delicious sweet potato casserole to our gathering at Dave’s parent’s house; but since I’m in love with all things “pumpkin”, I just couldn’t resist making one more pumpkin dessert!

If you’re still looking for a really simple Thanksgiving dessert idea — I might just have the one for you!

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie

posted by Andrea | 10/26/2011 | 9 comments

Every year, I like to try out a new version of the traditional pumpkin pie.
Last year I tried {with much success} Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie and this year, when I couldn’t make up my mind if I wanted to make cheese cake or pumpkin pie, I decided to make a Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie.

It is so delicious and has quickly become my all-time favorite pumpkin pie!

Triple-Layer Taco Pie

Tomorrow is May 5 — Cinco de Mayo — but that’s not the main reason for this post. The main reason is because I found yet another simple, delicious, and inexpensive Mexican meal that I’m pretty sure your entire family will love. And as with nearly all of my recipes, you can feel free to substitute and swap out ingredients to fit your family’s preferences…or just whatever you have in the house. I’ve listed a bunch of substitution options in […]

I have a new obsession… Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie! Photo credit: I’ve always been a sucker for anything “pumpkin”, and apples have been my one of my favorite foods since…well, forever! So when I came across this recipe from Cheryl over at, I knew I had to give it a try! I made two Apple Butter Pumpkin Pies for Thanksgiving, and since then, I’ve made this recipe FIVE more times! I did alter it a bit to make it “my […]

Old Fashion Chicken Pot Pie

posted by Andrea | 10/29/2010 | 24 comments

Chicken Pot Pie is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods {kind of like chicken soup I suppose} and if you’ve never eaten pot pie made from scratch, you are really missing out!  REALLY. This is one of those meals that doesn’t require any side dishes {hallelujah}. The meat, potatoes, and veggies are all there, inside a flaky pie crust. You can also forget the crust, put biscuits on top and serve it as a chicken stew. Either way, it’s a […]

Mini Fruit Pies

I love pie. I love eating pie, I love making pie, I love nearly all vartities of pie! The only problem with pie is that the crust always seems to get soggy before we can eat it all — there are just 2 of us you know. So today — as I was contemplating whether or not I should make a pie (and knowing that my husband would definitly want me to make a pie) — I decided to try […]
