2020, what a year it’s been, huh? I really don’t even know what to say about it other than I wish we had do-overs.
I know I’ve been gone for a while (I moved to Atlanta in September & it took a while to find my feet!) but I’m back. And look, I bought pie, figuratively speaking of course! If you’re looking for a knockout pie for the holidays (or just about anytime) that still has some down-home flair, you just can’t go wrong with a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Pie. It’s really one of my fave apple pies (ok, I have two favorites, this one and a caramelly one that I’ll post sometime) from the crispy, crunchy streusel on top down to the layer upon layer of tart, creamy, dreamy apples.
I have some news, guys. I’m in the midst of a move to Georgia, to the north of Atlanta. I decided to up and move in the middle of a global pandemic to be closer to my daughter and grandbabies. I was heartbroken that I hadn’t even been able to see my newest grandbaby, McKenzie, who is now six months and of course, heartbroken that I was so far away from all the grandkids!
If you follow me, you may have wondered what’s up; I generally post pretty regularly and my posts have been slow in coming. I had hoped to keep things going but the process of moving was more difficult (and time-consuming) than I imagined.
Of course, moving is always taxing; what I didn’t take into account was the mental toll! So many things to remember, so many decisions to make and so many heartbreaking goodbyes. Luckily I’ve had so many good friends and neighbors who have helped in so many ways, and my daughter and her friends who are taking on so many of the arduous tasks.
I will always miss my beloved Minnesota and friends and family there, but I am so looking forward to discovering and embracing all Georgia has to offer! I’ll be cooking and posting again soon (I am already itching to get into the kitchen once I’m settled in) & hope you’ll continue to follow along in my cooking adventures!
In the meantime, take care, all and stay safe and I hope to see you here again on these pages, soon!
So have you guys been getting some incredible corn this year? I have been so blessed to be able to participate in some of our local Food Fairs and last week there was a lot of corn! So expect more corn recipes coming up. In the meantime, yanno it’s so hot and I’ve been grilling a lot so it was inevitable, amirite? I had to post my Best Grilled Sweet Corn.
If you’re looking for a fun little salsa, something super easy, to dress up just about anything grilled, look no further! This easy, breezy Watermelon Peach Salsa is cool, refreshing, and has just a hint of heat. And you won’t want to stop eating it.
