Happy 4th Food

5 Jul

Hello all! I’m new to the food blogging world so please bear with me while I get the hang of this!

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July full of fun, family/friends time, fireworks, and good food! This year, the hubby and I just grilled some steaks and enjoyed a relaxing day together. It was definitely a lot less crazy than going to see the fireworks in DC last year. (Check out our short-lived video blog for more on that: 4th of July 2009)

So besides having steaks yesterday, I also decided to make a super duper American dessert. While I considered making a cute red/white/blue dessert of some sort, I decided on Apple Pie! I’ve made this particular pie a few times before, starting last Thanksgiving, but I think this one turned out the best. Apple pie is my husband’s favorite pie, so he was definitely a happy man!

Here’s a photo of the lovely pie:

Yeah, I had a little extra dough so I added some decorative dough flowers on top : )

YUM! However, this recipe is top secret. It was given to me by a friend (who I had to practically beg) and I swore I would never reveal the recipe. Sorry everyone…if you want to try it, looks like I’ll just have to make one for you! Good thing I like to bake!

    The pie looks fantastic. Better than I could ever do. Haven’t tackled a pie like that!

    Too funny! We celebrated the 4th with steaks (and shrimp) on the grill and apple pie!! Ours had a crumb topping tho as that’s what the kids like best. All was yummy, especially the shrimp. I’m next going to try grilling corn on the cob. Have you ever done that?
