    Caramel Pie

    Here’s another recipe that’s been in my family for years! Apparently this one belonged to Nonna too (just learned that this year.) The history is Nonna was the pastor’s wife (wife of my poppa Russell who was the pastor) at a church in Memphis. A lady in the church gave her the recipe. Years later, she shared the recipe with my mom. This was a go to recipe my mom would always serve! Therefore, I grew up with it!  This recipe is very easy to make but it does take a few hours for it to cook. It can’t be left unattended because you have to keep checking the water level…

    Aaron’s Burger Tips

    Okay ya’ll, it’s Aaron writing this one. And I’m here to tell you that my absolute favorite food in the world is a hamburger. The combination of fresh juicy beef, cheese, vegetables, any toppings or sauces you love, all on a delicious soft bun??? How can that not be the world’s most perfect food???
