French Coconut Pie - Oh My!

A simple baked coconut - vanilla - custard pie with a sweet, buttery, crackly topping. 

Happy Sunday friends! Today I have a delicious pie recipe to share with you. I found this French Coconut Pie recipe on Facebook and I've been obsessed with it ever since. I could eat this pie every single day and never tire of it! So many levels of deliciousness are packed inside this coconut pie. 

A crackly, crunchy topping and a ooey-gooey, buttery, coconut - vanilla center. This pie is incredible to say the least. It's been quite some time that I found a pie recipe that totally knocks my socks off, but this one did and it's sooooooooooooo simple to make. The best part is you probably have all the ingredients right in your pantry.

My Texas Table August Newsletter - Back to School Ideas


Happy Monday friends!!!  

Today was my youngest son's first day back-to-school. It's a bittersweet moment in our house having two kids that have graduated and one left in high school. I knew this day would come, but I can honestly say it sure did fly by. Last week was also my first week back to school & work (child nutrition), so there's been a lot of adjustments in our daily routine. 

Since everyone is either back-to-school or soon to be heading back, I thought my August newsletter should be about all things Back-to-School As your kids head back to another school year your schedules will go back to being a bit more hectic, so in today's newsletter, I will be sharing Lunch Box Ideas, Quick & Easy Breakfast Options and Simple Dinner Meals helping you ease back into your dinner routine. I hope y'all find something you like.

Homemade Plum Jelly

Fresh plums, sugar, pectin, water and butter make up this delicious old fashioned plum jelly.  
 
Hi everyone, I hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday! Today I have a yummy recipe to share with you. One of the highlights of summer's end is the abundance of fresh homegrown vegetables from our garden and fruit from our fruit trees. When growing season comes to an end canning season soon begins. 

The last couple weeks I have been busy in my kitchen freezing peaches and veggies and canning pickles, jellies, jams and relishes. I have to admit it's a lot of work, but it will be sooooooooo worth it when winter rolls around and my pantry and freezer are filled with summer's bounty.
