Banoffee Pie

Banoffee Pie - such caramelly deliciousness - and super easy, too!

I remember hearing about Banoffee Pie decades ago – but what I didn’t know then was just how EASY this is to make. And it’s soooo Caramelly Toffee Banana goodness. A shortbread crust, a good thick layer of Dulce de Leche, bananas and whipping cream touched with coffee. All those wasted years…

Two Layer Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie

It's like cheesecake on the bottom, pumpkin pie on the top with dulce de leche whipped cream topping.

Another pie? Why not!? Because I already made my Fave Pumpkin Pie last week, and then a Caramel Creme Pumpkin Pie extravaganza. So for actual Thanksgiving? A Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie. The bottom layer is a lush cream cheese & the top, a more sedate pumpkin pie layer. The Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream? It stole the show.

Our Favorite Pumpkin Pie – the correct Pam Anderson’s recipe

This pie by Pam Anderson (no not THAT Pam Anderson - is just gorgeous. Silky, beautiful and a fantastic blend of spices.

In honor of Thanksgiving, I’m reposting with new photos! Years ago, my son & I were in a pretty severe accident – my then 14 year old daughter made a good portion of the Thanksgiving dinner on her own, while I talked her through – from my bed. She’s always had a great talent for cooking.

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie. A bit of work but this is HEAVEN!!

Tomato Pie’s been on my bucket list for a while! I know – strange, right? Well, maybe not if you have a ton of tomatoes, and maybe not if you’re from the South. Or maybe not if you watch Paula Dean. But this isn’t quite that tomato pie. This is a Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie, and you’ll want to serve it for lunch or dinner, maybe with a simple green salad.
