Would you like an E-cookbook?

A friend of mine sent me an E- cookbook that has recipes from a WHOLE BUNCH of different restaurants.

Since I've been such a bad blogger and haven't given you any new things I thought some of you may like it.

If you would leave a comment with your email address and I'll send it along!

Have a great day and God Bless!

Well alright. I've been a bad blogger. But it's because I'm being a good wife!

Hubby is taking Master's classes this summer and for last week and this week he has to borrow my laptop because he has class in the am and pm and stays on campus all day.

So I've been without my computer (and photo uploader).

Don't worry, I'll be back !

Thanks for your patience!

Our Niagara Falls Fun!

Have you been to Niagara Falls (we were on the NY side)? It's a fun place. Hubby had never been and I had only seen them in passing ( I know I lived in NY for 21 years, what can I say).

We took the cave of the winds tour, which let me tell you was sweet. They give you sandals and a poncho. You take an elevator down and then you walk around on a bridge and get to go nearly IN the falls.

It was awesome. I just wanted to share the pictures! Enjoy and God Bless

(can you see my hubby?)

Fruit and Rhubarb Pie

Well for my first post back it sure will be a fun one. I haven't had much time to cook since I've been home. Work has kept me very busy. Hopefully this next week will slow down some and I can get back in the kitchen. I just got all my new Pampered Chef stuff, so I'm looking forward to using it!

When I was home, my mom had bought some rhubarb but wasn't sure how she wanted to use it. So I made this pie. We had some great fruit in the house so I didn't go the basic Strawberry Rhubarb style.

This turned out great!

2 Pie Crusts (one for top and bottom)- I used Pillsbury, I didn't want to make one.
6 Stalks Rhubarb (trimmed and leaves removed *did you know they are poisonous*)
4 Small apples
1 Container Strawberries
1/2 Pint Blueberries
3/4 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Cornstarch (to thicken the juices)
2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 yolk + 1 tsp water lightly beaten
White sugar to top

Place one Pie Crust in a Pie Pan.

Slice up Rhubarb into 1/4-1/2" pieces. Slice Apples thinly (leave the skins on, it's good for you).
Slice Strawberries thickly.
Add Blueberries.

Put them all in a big mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix.

Pour into your pie tin and flatten as much as possible.
Now you can get fancy pants like me and make a lattice top (which is really easy by the way- if you need a good tutorial check out Smitten Kitchen's ).

Then take your beaten egg and water mixture and brush it on top, this will help it to brown. I always like to dust mine with some sugar. So take a pinch of white sugar and put it all on the top. Yum.

Put in the Oven at 400* for 20 min and then reduce to 350* for another 20-30 minutes until pie is lightly browned. Allow to rest and then enjoy!

Have a great Saturday and God Bless
