Ghostly Graveyard Pie!

Ghostly Graveyard Pie, a spooky pie for Halloween! I used to teach my music students a song during the Halloween season. It was called, "Have You Seen the Ghost of John?". They LOVED it! It's wasn't a spooky song, but at the end of it, there was an unexpected "BOO"! That's what I thought when I decided to make this Ghostly Graveyard Pie. Candace, Randa, and I had gone to the grocery store on Saturday. As we were talking about Halloween goodies, Candace asked me to make an Oreo Pie, but make it like a graveyard. Good idea!!! I immediately thought about the Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Ghosts I made with Jalynn and Duke last week. Then the plan for the pie began! Making the Ghostly Graveyard Pie . . . Candace thought Aunt Faye's … [Read more...]

Benjamins’ Blackberry Cobbler (Cooking with Grandkids)

Sunday, after church, Benjamin came over and we made his Blackberry Cobbler. He is 13, so I asked him if he wanted me to make it, or did he want to make it? Guess what he said . . . HE wanted to make his Blackberry Cobbler! Candace has trained her children well. They ALL like to cook:) That is near and dear to my … [Read more...]
