No matter the holiday, I always have my kids nattering at me and begging me to make my best ever classic apple pie recipe. As well as, my simple sweet strawberry pie.

There is no denying that my children have followed suit in my families love for all things pie. I mean seriously, who doesn’t love a slice of delicious pie?! Well, other than my husband. He is a chocolate cake kind of guy. That is when you can twist his finger to even eat desserts or sweets for that matter.

This past weekend, I had the delight of hosting Christmas dinner for my Mother-in-law. The last time I saw her, I brought my Turkey Shepherd’s Pie to her house for dinner and everyone raved about it. I knew this past weekend would go off without a hitch as well, and you know what it did. Everyone loved all of my delicious creations!
