Today I am showing you how to make a “not so typical” apple pie and this tradition was handed down to me by my “not so typical” great grandmother Emma Geiger LaGorin, of German descent. I was lucky enough to have my great grandmother alive and well until I was around 20 years old. I called her “great grandma on the farm” because…well… she lived on a farm of course!
Each visit to grandma on the farm’s house in rural Ohio, would begin with a huge dinner, farmer’s wife style. When we arrived and walked through the back door, instantly you would be welcomed by the smell of her fresh baked Sour Cream Apple Pie cooling in the pantry. I would rush through dinner just to get to this sweet, tangy, creamy pie! Till this day when I bake this pie I’m transported to grandma on the farm’s house.
Thanks for letting me go down memory lane with you today and share a recipe which is very near and dear to my heart. I hope this posting sparks a new tradition in your family for years to enjoy!Gather All Ingredients aka, Mise en place.

It’s that time of year where I seem to be needing to bake and take a casserole with me everywhere I go.
My GO TO casserole that I’ve been making for over 20 years is this Garden Chicken Casserole, from a cookbook called Gifts That Taste Good. It’s super cheesy, made with wild rice and veggies and oh so tasty!! Super easy to make, I always double the recipe and freeze one for later. Everyone loves it and you will too.
Click HERE for the recipe. I use real mushrooms and cheddar cheese (not American)

I have to admit that tomorrow night as soon as my kiddos get home and open up their little bags of sweets, this mom is going to be raiding the BUTTERFINGERS!
Say no to the 3-Musketeers (who ever thought that was a good one?) Milky Ways (yuck) and most awful Smarties :) I’ll gladly forgo all sweets for just a bit of my favorite sweet and salty Butterfinger.
Thanks to my friend over at Love From The Oven for rounding up over 50 BUTTERFINGER Recipes. It’s going to be a busy weekend!
Happy Halloween! Have fun and stay safe.
