Best Buttermilk Pie Recipe

Best Buttermilk Pie Recipe on Time2saveworkshops.com

Kasey here, I have barely cooked the past couple of months because I’ve felt so yucky from morning sickness. (In case you missed my announcement on Mother’s Day we are expecting a new addition in November of this year.) I made it up to my family today by making our favorite Best Buttermilk Pie before Gary starts a new AdvoCare 24-day challenge this week. If you haven’t tried Buttermilk Pie, it is simply amazing!!! One of my absolute favorite desserts, it melts in your mouth and it’s so so easy to make.

This particular recipe, comes straight from my mama’s kitchen. She made me this precious handwritten recipe book when I first got married 17 years ago. By far, it is the most used recipe book in my kitchen. It includes all my family’s favorite recipes. Since it’s not a “secret” recipe I thought I’d share with you.

Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

lemon-cake

Jamie here, some things in life are just meant to be together.  A cool lemon cake with cream cheese icing is one of those things. 

This simple dessert is quick becoming one of my favorites – because it’s simple, the presentation is nice for any occasion, and it’s just a little unusual amidst the parade of chocolate-everything.  Even though the cake itself is a box mix, the end result tastes like much more went into it.   The added touch of white-chocolate chips around the edge makes it extra-pretty :)
