I can’t let apple season go by without baking a pie……ok 2 pies. (Tune in tomorrow for #2!) This month really flew by for me, and I’m sure October will be no different.
I was having a great conversation with a friend of mine the other day about patience. About how its hard following your dreams, and working so hard, yet the results show up so slowly. They definitely show up, but sometimes we wish for more instant gratification. She said to me, “Bets, by the time we’re 40, we’ll be living the good life, total divas, living large” I agreed, but I already feel like I’m living pretty darn large! I mean, maybe not private jet and Cristal large, but not too shabby if you ask me. I think if she and I looked back 4 years from where we started, she would agree. I told her I thought this last year was the best year of my life so far. Also the hardest. I know nothing worth having ever comes easy, and the second we stop busting our asses is the second everything we have doesn’t mean anything anymore. I’m hoping the future brings new rewards, new challenges, and lots of more things to celebrate. Ok, never mind hoping, I’m gonna make it happen.
Wasn’t this post supposed to be about pie? Oh right. Starting the Apple month wrap up I present to you Apple Limoncello Pie from one of my favorite blogs, cakeduchess.com This pie totally blew my mind. I loved the lemon flavor, and the addition of the jam was complete perfection. I made her crust, instead of my usual pie crust, and it complemented the pie perfectly. I highly recommend giving this one a try.
