Apple Pie!

So, my cousin, Zach, graduated from high school (through homeschooling!) and today is his graduation party! He is not a big fan of cake....he said he would rather have my aunt asked numerous family members if we would each make a pie (of our own choosing) to bring to the graduation party. I said SURE! I think it's fun to make pie...although not really on HOT days...but oh well! The worse thing about it all is that I won't even get to eat a piece of it...LOL...I think it would be way too many points!
The recipe I use to make my apple pies is simply the one from the Betty Crocker Cookbook that I have! I don't know how many various recipes there are for apple pie...but that's the only one I have ever used. However....LOL...I don't measure. I just dump in about what it asks for ...I figured a lil extra sugar makes it even better...don't you? Oh....and if you want some coupons from Betty can go HERE!

And this is a pic of an enamelware jar my aunt got me yesterday! Isn't it great? She knew how much I love enamelware and saw it and got it for me...(and the kids..haha). I haven't filled it with treats yet..but when I do, it will probably have to be kept up on the fridge cuz my kiddos have a habit of taking food...especially the "treat" kind....without asking! :) The lid doesn't fit it perfectly...but I think that is part of it's charm. That is one thing I love about the country/prim style of decorating...nothing has to be perfect! It's actually better when it isn't perfect! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and are staying cool! xoxo


  1. Oh how I wish that pie was 0 points ! I do however have some really cool recipes for low point desserts, maybe I should dig into them !!
    Have a great weekend,

  2. OH the pie looks so yummy - I am so glad you are too far away for me to dig in! LOL I will have to be happy with a apple pie yogurt now.

    I hope the graduation party was a blat. Hugs, Linda

  3. Katy, that is one good looking pie! I think I just drooled! LOL

    I am a big fan of enamelware too. It is so quaint. What a nice aunt you have.

  9. Katy, I have some very important information for Cora on how she can get some help with her cancer treatment. I left a comment on her last post but there are so many comments that I don't know if she will see it. If you know how to get in touch with her please have her email me at or
    check out my comments on her post 2 days ago about her family helping her pay for her meds. Thanks. Love your site. Will look at it more closely later. Right now I have to get Cora's attention. Thanks.
