My mother, Shirley, was a pie master. She could mix up crust for a double-crust pie in a matter of seconds. It was always the same recipe: 2 cups all-purpose flour mixed with 1 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (sugar if she was making a sweet pie); 2/3 cup Crisco; and 3-4 tablespoons ice-cold water. Her’s was always perfect. Perfectly flavored, perfectly crimped, and perfectly browned. Mom didn’t make savory pies often, but this recipe was one of our favorites.

Old Fashioned Cube Steak with Tomato Gravy is an old-timey dish inspired by Mom’s roast beef recipe minus the soup. I’m also paying homage to my Midwestern roots where hearty meals are a staple. A family favorite served with lots of mashed potatoes.
Mimi’s Split Pea Soup with Cornbread Croutons is an old-timey and satisfying bowl of steamy comfort. This recipe is a good way to use up leftover ham. Add chunks of russet and sweet potatoes and top off the bowl with crunchy cornbread croutons for a filling wintry meal.
Want a quick and easy dessert? Mimi’s Mini Lemon Cheesecakes are a perfect sweet bite that I whipped these up in no time for a Christmas open house last week. All store-bought ingredients and these tasty mini’s were ready in 30 minutes.
Our family enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving meal this year! As promised in my earlier post, I wanted to revisit our menu selections and one last-minute dessert change. And then there’s our story about the turkey . . . everyone has a turkey story, right??
