    what have i been doing today? (loving kara that's what!)

    wanna know why we love kara? wanna know why she is our favorite person in the whole wide world? wanna know why my hubby is unpacking his bags and has decided to not leave me and the kids for kara?

    this is why!

    i just baked a pie. actually i baked two pies. these are the first pies i've ever baked in my life!!! i cheated and used frozen pie shells but next time i'm going to make my shells from scratch... but with this being my first ever pies... i was a little nervous so i didn't want to over extend myself.

    so... without further delay... here they are!



    now kara... if they taste 1/2 as good as the bowl did when i licked it... ooooh laaaa laaaa we'll be in heaven tonight at our fondue.

    thanks again kara... for sharing your secrets with me. i sooooooo appreciate it (as does my drooling hubby who's been trying to sniff the pecans off the cooling pies!)

    They look SOOOOO YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Beautiful pies - excellent job! If they taste as good as they look (and I'm sure they do!), then give yourself ANOTHER A+!!

    hearing that from you is huuuuuge kara.

    i had to turn them down to 300 for the last 1/2 hour cause they were starting to burn. so i hope they are solid on the inside LOL

    i guess we'll be eating them with a spoon if they are liquid...

    They look fabulous, Aleesha!


    Here's a little tip that I've used when baking pies (which I don't do all that often)....when they get to the point where the crust is juusssst starting to look as dark as you'd like it to...take the pie out of the oven for a minute and very carefully fold aluminum strips around the edge...then place it back in the oven at the same temp its been baking at for the remainder of its baking time.

    This is a tricky maneuver...folding little strips of foil over the edges of a hot pie...but once you get the hang of it, it works like a charm...allowing a perfectly baked pie without burnt crusts!

    But seriously....those pies don't look in any need of MY help!! Except for this:

    thanks judy!!!

    i just 'touched' them... (no i did not cut into them yet) and they feel like they are firming up nicely.

    so... i hope when we cut into them they don't turn to mush. maybe i should bring some icrecream with me in case they do... that was we can pretend it was "sundae sauce in a pie shell"
