Easy Kentucky Derby Pie Recipe


Easy Kentucky Derby Pie Recipe

Just a reminder to give this pie a try this weekend, Derby Day 2015 is on May 2 this year!!

Kentucky Derby Pie is a beautiful beast of a pie.  Simply put, it’s pecan pie with chocolate chips. But that is not what your mouth will tell you. Your mouth will tell you “OHMYGAH- thank you for this chocolatey, nutty, gooey, flaky, beast!”  It’s just so darn good your mouth will probably need another piece or two to do it justice.  You’d best bake a double batch…. (I do!)

Mother’s Day Photo Canvas only $16 Shipped!

Mother’s Day is only a couple weeks away - and a photo canvas would make a really sweet gift.  A great picture of you and your siblings, or you and your mom, even a small one to keep on the bookshelf, would make her smile.

Photo canvases are notoriously expensive – and the shipping is worse – but right now you can get 60% OFF + FREE Shipping on ANY canvas at Easy Canvas Prints!  Prices start at just $16 Shipped – what a steal!


  1. Just GO HERE and upload a photo to get started.
  2. You’ll be able to choose greyscale or sepia (for an extra charge)-  do that on your computer’s photo editing software ahead of time so you won’t get charged.  Here’s the one I made of me & my hubby  :)
  3. Shipping is FREE for any size (again, CRAZY!)

IMPORTANT: Since they recommend ordering 10-12 business days ahead, today or tomorrow is really the LAST day to safely order a photo canvas and have it arrive on Mother’s Day.

We’d love to see pictures of your completed canvas if you make one – here’s one of me and my hubby from a few years back.  It’s my favorite thing in my living room!
