With the weather getting warmer and the days getting longer, it is time to begin outdoor entertaining with family and friends. After a cookout on a hot summer day, a cool, refreshing dessert is the best way to finish the meal. I first made this recipe as a twist on the classic Cherry Yum Yum, a classic Southern dessert. You can change up the pie filling for different berry flavors and have a large dessert spread in no time!
Bakewell Tart is a British favorite. My grandmother often served this when I was growing up and I spent the summers in England with her. My grandmother was NO cook and her Bakewell Tart came out of a box. I believe it was 6 small rectangles regardless of which brand she bought. Nowadays I make it myself and I simply cannot say “it was just like grandmother’s”!
“Our cows have come fresh. Would you like some milk?” a neighbor from the Tres Belotas Ranch asked one Sunday after church. For city dwellers this translates, “Our cows have calved. There is a superabundance of fresh-from-the-cow-milk.” This timely gift was an opportunity to share this nice present by including Strawberry Rhubarb Pie in an early spring lunch menu. It’s an American Classic that belongs to the season.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
