Fried Pies Part II (Apple!)

  We’ve been having a fall weekend here in the coastal south – it was very refreshing to wake up to temperatures in the 60s and only have a high of 70 or so.  What a great change from the sweltering heat we’ve had all summer.  To me, fall is about college football, apple cider, […]

Fried Cherry Pies

It’s like a scene from an old movie about the south – a grandfather and a little boy walking out of a gas station with an RC Cola and a MoonPie, getting into a 57 Chevy and taking to the road.  It happened like that for me, but with different vittles.  Yes, I said vittles, […]
