Welcome, welcome!! You have landed on our little corner of the web and we are pleased as pie to have you!
This blog will hopefully be the start to a wonderful relationship with the interwebs and those that might actually read about our crazy little lucky cluck farm life. I have a lot to say and figure that typing it out is a GREAT idea and getting to share ideas, thoughts, recipes, tips, tricks and my general craziness is the BEST idea. I am a 40ish mom of 6 boys...YES 6 of them. They are aged 13-20 and let me tell you, I never ever knew that boys could eat so dang much. See, teenage girls don't eat like teenage boys, at least I know I did not. I am married to Mr. C, my partner in crime, my Mister Fixer, my builder and tinkerer, my best friend. I work full time for a University in Texas and then go home and work full time as a wife, mom and creative soul. I just opened an Etsy shop and I am so excited about selling the things I have collected and create. SO stinking excited!! :)
I think I will start this blog with a recipe I made this weekend! It was my Dad's birthday the day after Thanksgiving and he loves coconut cream pie, therefore, after 2 days of cooking Thanksgiving dinner, pies and treat, I decided to make another pie. There was a lot of pie last week. I found this on Pinterest (I am addicted to Pinterest) and it turned out amazeballs! It was the best coconut cream pie I remember ever having. You should make one..seriously...you should!!
Coconut Cream Pie
I found the recipe on QVC.com of all place, but hey, it is so good I am not going to knock where it came from! One little change I made the recipe was to add about 1/4 tsp of coconut flavor. It does not call for it, but it added just a little more coconutty flavor than just putting in the toasted coconut. Coconutty. Yes, that is a word. I think.
If you make it, let me know what you think!
