Browned Butter and Bacon plus delicious chocolatey goodness….

I found under the “On his day” thingy on Facebook, a recipe I posted several years ago for bacon and chocolate chip cookies… so I decided to try it… however, instead of following the recipe I had found, I modified my own cookie recipe and this is what I got… which I have been told is delicious.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

We were at the Farmer’s Market on the weekend and found some lovely fresh rhubarb…. so of course pie must be made!

My mother is a pie expert.  I’ve probably told you this before, but she made pie a LOT … seemed like every day.. after all, Dad needed his breakfast pie.. not to mention lunch and dinner pie… but then he got the high cholesterol and all that pie eating came to an end.  Good thing as I think my mother was getting awfully tired ….but I digress.

Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie - Beth the BakerHappy PI Day!

Okay, so this is late.  And I’m a nerd.  Pi Day is supposed to be to celebrate the mathematical constant Pi or π.  However, it IS a pretty good excuse to just have pie.  And I WAS in Math Club, so it’s all good.  Although at Math competitions we just got donuts.  No pie.  The heathens!

We celebrated Pi Day with some pretty delicious Coconut Cream Pie.  Enjoy! Continue reading
