Pie Anyone?

   I have been in the kitchen most of the day today. Started out making dinner rolls from a Bob's Red Mill gluten free bread mix I found in the freezer. I baked them in cast iron-and they were really good-tasted like "real " bread.  They are a bit browner because I was going by the time it would take to bake a loaf of bread, and these only took half the time-I caught them just in time.




I made the chunky fresh cranberry sauce. This time I added softened dried cherries and dried blueberries to the fresh cranberries.

and I was very pleased with the sweet potato pies. I made one with a walnut crust and the other with a pecan crust. I had the exact amount of sweet potato mashed up for two pies so I just made two.  We like pie for breakfast with our coffees, and in case someone should stop by I will have pie to share. (not expecting anyone but one never knows haha)



This is the recipe I used for a reference from Taste of Home  I used half splenda and half coconut sugar for the white sugar, and I changed the milk to half and half. After reading allot of recipes online I cut the nutmeg to 1/4 teaspoon as many suggested less nutmeg and more cinnamon.  The nut crusts are gluten and carb free.

Have you been working in the kitchen today?

  1. I’ll take a virtual piece of that pie please! The rolls look so good. I really need to try that bread mix. It’s feeling mighty good to finally sit down after being in the kitchen most of the day. I can’t help thinking of all I would rather be doing than cooking. It’s about all I can do to keep from bolting out the door! 😉 happy Thanksgiving!

    1. whipped cream with your Pie?
      My body was starting to ache a bit from standing most of the day in the kitchen. I was really happy with this bread mix-I added an herb spice, chives, and a little black pepper to the mix too. Happy Thanksgiving-hugs

  3. Those rolls look wonderful, and those pies are out of this world. Like you, I've been cooking all day and doing some prep work so I have less to do before the main event. Happy Thanksgiving, Kathy.

  6. Kathy, adding sweet potato to bread mixes makes bread crumbs softer. Do not overdo it with nutmeg as it is very invasive.
    A warm greeting to you.

    1. I think this is awesome that you can work from home-before retirement I worked for the phone co and had a very long commute to and from work you would like this pie I think-not too sweet

  10. Whoa-those pies look so good! I may hop a plane and stop in for some! I wasn't in the kitchen for Thanksgiving but the day before I made two pies-one for us and one for our neighbor. It was special because he has been very hostile. I needed to forgive him, and handing him a pie was a good thing....
