Saturday I had the privilege of meeting up with two fellow foodies who’s blogs I love and admire. I headed up to Childress Vineyards in Lexington NC for an afternoon of wine, food, and conversation with Prerna from Indian Simmer and Rebbeca from Chow and Chatter. The wine was amazing and the conversation even better. There is just something so gratifying (and cool!) about meeting up with the people of the blogs you follow. Putting a face to a name always makes it more personal and reminds me of one of the main reasons I started blogging in the first place. Community. There are so many incredibly talented and amazing bloggers out there. Meeting other bloggers through conferences and outside meet-ups has quickly become one of my favorite aspects of blogging. Thanks for a great afternoon ladies!
But, of course, the reason we’re all here milling around is for the recipe of the day. And I definitely have a good one. Because in case you need reminding, Thanksgiving is coming. And with Thanksgiving comes eating. Lots and lots of eating. And when you’re done eating your delicious feast, you’re going to need a pie. A kick butt good pie. This is that pie. I’ve even gone so far as to put myself out there for my first ever vlog on how to easily lattice a pie. I can almost hear my mom now… “put on some make up and brush your hair! Look pretty for goodness sake!” Ok mom, I didn’t get all dolled up for my opening show, but I still did a pretty decent job of showing how to lattice a pie.
And in a first ever Mommie Cooks blunder, I completely and totally forgot to take a picture of the ingredients for the inside of the pie. I’m not sure what happened. Probably a combination of sleep deprivation, lack of caffeine and three kids talking to me simultaneously as I attempt to do pretty much anything. I did manage to snap a picture of the dough ingredients, so I at least got half there. Let’s bake a pie.
