As seen in the new book "Hand in Hand"

Friday Flashback and The Daily Brainstorm

Surprise Me!

I have the feeling that much of the older content on my blog goes unnoticed. I know there are things like how to make a crayon roll, gummi candy recipe, the zippered pouch tutorial and a few others that get read but, I realized the other day there are over 600 posts here. So from time to time I am going to have Flashback Fridays and share some ideas from the archives!

Before we get to the flashback I wanted to say that I am happy to be part of a new blog called, The Daily Brainstorm: A Blogazine to Rock Your Mind.

The Daily Brainstorm

Mission: To provide place where compelling ideas mingle, where the best and the brightest gather, and where readers are inspired in a multitude of ways to live bigger, bolder and happier lives.

It an aggregate blog that pulls in feeds from other blogs.  It’s like a magazine with blogs for the pages. And these “pages” are spectacular. You will hear from bloggers like Zen Habits, ProBlogger, the Happiness Project, (and hopefully every now and then), me. Right now there are over 40 blogs on board, with more being added. Why is this so great? It makes it easy  to read and visit blogs you’ve never heard of, meet new people, be in the know, hear new ideas, gain new perspectives and broaden your horizons.

So check it out and get a glimpse on the world — a nice big slice of the pie! It is delicious!

and so is this pie from the archives……

It is a recipe from my dear friend, Martha. Martha taught me how to tie my shoes and how to make fancy chocolate dipped candies. She took me peach picking and fishing——so many good memories!
It is as wonderful and sweet as she was! I hope you enjoy!

Martha Wareheim’s Toll House Pie

½ Cup butter (melted)

2 eggs

½ Cup flour

½ Cup sugar

½ Cup brown sugar

1 Cup chocolate chips

1 regular pie crust- not deep dish

Preheat oven to 325°. Melt butter then set aside. Beat two eggs in a mixing bowl until foamy(I beat with a whisk just well enough to see a few bubbles). Mix in sugars and flour. Slowly stir in butter and then chocolate chips. Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell. Bake for about 1 hour. This pie freezes beautifully. Serve warm with ice cream. YUMMY! This is such a simple pie and I am always asked for the recipe.

If you like fruit pies don’t miss this Triple Berry Pie and don’t forget it is so easy and fun to make your own Apple Pie Filling in a Jar!
