Friday Things

My mom is in town this week to “babysit” while I work. My cousins got wind of this info and decided to come to town for a visit too. It’s a family affair! I was lucky enough to be able to take a little time off to spend with my family and play tourist.

Having my mom in town made me think of some of recipes I grew up with as a child. My mom is an excellent cook and baker and my dad likes to get in on the baking too sometimes. Here are a few recipes that I grew up with, watching, helping, or putting my own spin on, as I grew into my own. I hope you enjoy them 🙂

Bourbon-Pecan-Pie
Pecan pie is my dad’s specialty.  I finally made my own for the first time a couple of years ago, and later tweaked it into a bourbon pecan pie.  Yum!

double-crust-apple-pie-1
My mom’s pie classic is the double-crust apple pie.  I’ve never altered her recipe.  My only goal is to be able to make the crust as good as hers.  I’m getting there!

rolls-1
My mom’s other staple is homemade rolls.  They are the most delicious rolls I’ve ever eaten.  I’m still trying to match hers.

Chocolate-Chip-1
Last but not least are the chocolate chip cookies.  My dad and I would cream the butter and sugar by hand.  It was our way of spending more time together.

Have a great weekend!!!
