I stayed up late last night to make Sophia these Heart Shaped Strawberry Shortcakes. We had a rough day together yesterday..if Sophia doesn’t nap she becomes a little bear, especially by bedtime rolls around. I wanted to make these to let her know that even though we had a rough day together that I still love her no matter what.

Plus, Sophia’s favorite shape is the heart.

These Strawberry Shortcakes are the best…so good! So I am happy to share this recipe with you!

Sophia’s First Homemade Pie

Sophia is my little helper in the kitchen. No matter what I am doing she always ends up helping me out, and I LOVE it. It only seems to be natural that she enjoys being in the kitchen as much as I do, she comes from a family of cooks and bakers on both sides. It’s in her blood. I hope she continues to enjoy it as she gets older.

She always drags a chair over to the counter (like a foot away from where I am standing). Not matter what, as soon as I stand in front of the counter within seconds I have my Sous Chef!

Sophia climbs up and says “help..help..mama…peas,” with her big green eyes. It melts my heart every time…I mean..whose wouldn’t?

Brandied Sweet Potato Pie

Nothing reminds me of Thanksgiving more than pie. One of may favorite parts of Thanksgiving is after dinner and everyone is in a Turkey comatose state, I love sneaking off downstairs to the game room with a piece of pie; and watch t.v. of course.

I was reading in a magazine earlier this week that stated “northern states prefer Pumpkin Pie over Sweet Potato Pie. Whereas Southern States prefer Sweet Potato Pie over Pumpkin Pie.” That got me thinking because every Thanksgiving we never have Sweet Potato Pie only Pumpkin Pie.

So I thought I would switch things up a bit this year and make Sweet Potato Pie..and boy was I glad I made it.

This recipe came from Food Network Magazine “Time for Turkey,” edition. And let me just say I am a sucker for those food magazines by the check out lines at the grocery store.
