Fresh Cherry Pie

Cherries. One of my favorite things about summer. I picked up two gigantic bags at a local outdoor market last week. They were on sale because they were sort of funny looking–my husband described them as Siamese Twin Cherries. Each one had an appendage with its own pit. No matter. They were still delicious and […]

Florida Pie

  If you have been a reader here for awhile, you know that I love lime and coconut–together or apart. And of course, I adore key lime anything.

Banoffee Pie

My dear friend, Jenni, posted about Banoffee Pie awhile back. I’ve been thinking about it and hearing about it off and on ever since. I knew I needed to try it. And since it was a Sunday night when I first made this, I decided it was time to resurrect Sunday Night Desserts. And then […]
