Retro Re-Pin Party 19

My family is in the process of buying a second car and moving across town. Hopefully we are going to sign a contract with a new rental soon. I know I'll feel better when I have a signed contract that we have someplace to live. Since I was married, I've moved 4 times, not including the current move. Growing up, I only moved twice. How many times have you moved?

Pie Crust in a Food Processor







Have you seen this pin to make pie crust with a cake mix? I thought it sounded wonderful, but I wanted to make it from scratch. I decided to adapt my pie crust to taste like cake. I took a pumpkin pie to a church event/contest and it won the best crust award. I had to admit that I was proud that my homemade crust got noticed. Pictured below is a cherry pie I made.

Life has been really busy for me and I haven't posted many new recipes recently. This is partially because I want to make sure that the recipes I post are really good and definitely mine to share. I like to have successfully made a recipe at least three times before posting it up here. This helps me make sure that my trials aren't just flukes!

For the recipe bloggers out there, what are your standards before posting a recipe to your blog?

Last night I made a pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and chicken. Once I get the recipe perfect, you'll be the first to know. I also have made pancakes with a strawberry sauce that I want to share soon too. I've made it twice and loved it both times.

Retro Re-Pin Party 17


Hi everyone. We're glad to see you this week for the Retro Re-Pin Party. We have a new host this week, Deborah from Mommy Crusader and her Knights and Ladies.  No, she's not in the big group photo yet, so you'll have to look forward to that next week.
