When my sister-in-law got engaged to a man from New Zealand, and they decided they would live in America. I thought it would be a nice idea to make them a family recipe book with recipes from both sides of their new family.

I am not a fan of pecan pie, but every fall I have requests from family members to make pecan pie for the various holidays. Pecan pie seems to be a staple for families no matter how hard I try to push chocolate fudge pie. Sigh, oh well, I guess that just means more fudge pie for me! I hope you enjoy this recipe for … Continue reading Pecan Pie
I do not like fruit pie. However, the first time I went to my husband’s grandmother’s for Christmas Eve I tried a piece of their apple pie. I was in heaven!

It is always a family favorite, and so simple and easy … Continue reading Our Favorite Blackberry Cobbler

The recipe is originally from Betty Crocker and believe you might enjoy it on a nice … Continue reading Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’mores Bars
Now I have made cinnamon rolls several times. They always seem time-consuming, and never turn out tasting very good, which is a let down. For Christmas, I decided to try it again using the Pioneer Woman’s recipe. They turned out fabulous! It’s probably all the butter! They were still time-consuming and super messy, but we’re soooo worth it! I made one batch of dough, and … Continue reading Delicious Cinnamon and Orange Rolls!
I am not a fan of pumpkin flavored things, but I love this cake recipe especially the icing. It’s probably one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten. The cinnamon and pumpkin in this recipe makes it a great recipe to use year after year as a favorite Fall/Thanksgiving cake! It’s really moist and the icing just melts in your mouth. Hope you enjoy … Continue reading Pumpkin Cake
