Apple Pie



Everyone has a apple pie recipe that they think is the best......well, this is the best ...for real!! Just in time for America's birthday! All American apple pie!

Mom requested a apple pie for her 99th birthday! DONE! I bought Granny Smith apples and Gala apples mixed together with the most amazing pie crust you'll ever lay your lip on!! Now, for the naysayers...lard mmmmm well, divide the 8 tablespoons in the dough into the 8 plus pieces versus, a tuff non flakey crust. I pick flakey and the butter adds flavor! 

This pie is KILLER!!!

French Lentil Salad



With Summer here, I wanted a alternative to the normal potato salad. I played around with some ingredients and came up with a delicious healthy salad. As humble and inexpensive as they are, lentils are a true super food. They are loaded with protein, fiber, iron and much more goodness. Their flavor is super earthy so go well with strong flavors, I paired fresh squeezed lime juice and olive oil, however you could used a strong red wine vinaigrette if you would like. I added roasted baby red potatoes, cucumber and a handful of mint to add a little zip!
