My Project 160-001

This week we are featuring some great pie recipes from our friends around the internet.  We thought since Sunday is Father’s Day what could be better to serve Dad than pie!  My father always loved any kind of pie and it never lasted long in his presence.   We hope you will check out these recipes and sites.  You will be able to “share” with your friends by clicking on the Facebook, Pinterest or E-mail buttons at the bottom of each post. Click on the name of the recipe to check it out and Enjoy!

Did you know Father’s Day was founded in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd, who was born in Arkansas.  Its first celebration was in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there. After hearing a sermon about Jarvis’ Mother’s Day in 1909, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. Although she initially suggested June 5, her father’s birthday, the pastors did not have enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June. You can read more here. 


To prevent soggy bottoms when baking fruit pies, sprinkle a thin layer of ground up graham cracker crumbs on the crust, then add the filling.  The crumbs will soak up any excess liquid.

Came from God; I call him Dad!

The following poem was written by me to my Father years ago.  I was living away from home and missing my Dad.

The most important man in a Southern girl’s life. . . . DADDY!   Happy Father’s Day to all the “Daddies” out there.
