Apple Crostata

Pin It
I have been wanting to make a crostata for some time now and also to perfect my pie dough.

I have always made pretty good pie dough and have used several different recipes such as my No Fail Pie Crust or one my friend Kathy gave me that used vinegar and an egg that always was a hit too.  But still and all not EVERY pie crust tastes the same when I make them and it can be very frustrating; so yesterday I did a little experiment with some pie dough.

I used my mini Cuisinart (that I bought at Costco) and made three separate batches of pie dough. One with all butter and some sugar that I saw Ina make, one with all butter flavored Crisco and half the amount of sugar, and the last one with butter flavored Crisco and no sugar added.

Melt in your Mouth Crock Pot BBQ Ribs

Pin It
I'm finally back after several months off planning my daughters wedding, whew!

I have missed you guys and blogging so much lately and with the way technology changes with the wind it'll be a miracle if I can even remember how to write a post.

With only three of us living at home most days I decided it was time to get myself a new (smaller) crock pot.  And beings as I LOVE my All Clad 7qt. slow cooker I decided to try the All Clad 4 Qt. Slow Cooker for smaller meals.  Both are available at Williams Sonoma or Amazon.
