This week I have a request from my dad, Ernie Larson! It's his birthday Monday November 11, join me in wishing him a happy birthday! He requested his favorite pie, Pecan Pie, with my twist on it. So here it is. Fully of ooey, gooey sticky filling with pecans to boot. I went a little pecan crazy so have reduced the amount of pecans in the recipe so it'll be just right for you. :) This recipe reflects a standard 9" pie but if you want to make the cutsie mini cast iron skillet version I have the measurements in the notes of the recipe. Let's get baking! Make it with me on YouTube/FaceBook or read about it below. Happy Birthday Dad! Thanks for being the best dad and our weekly calls!

My mom, Johanna Larson, makes the most amazing pies. Around the holidays we'd get to choose our favorite dessert and she would make the pies. I remember my mom and dad waking up early to make the homemade pie crust for the quiche and other desserts. This is her go-to recipe. I told her I used it today and she recited the recipe to me by heart, that's how much she uses it. This is a great crust that is versatile, can be made and baked right away so you don't even have to refrigerate for hours and it's still darn good. Get the family recipe below, plus find tons of useful "mom" tips, thanks mom!!!

We love baked oatmeal for breakfast, it's warming, hearty and so delicious. This is a spin-off that concept with a fresh new outlook using ingredients to boost the protein intake for a filling breakfast. Quinoa is soaked overnight, rinsed and then baked. Soaking will allow your body to absorb the nutrients more readily, including the protein! The flavors of cinnamon, vanilla, peanut butter, berries and bananas swirl together to create a morning treat. I hope you love this recipe!

Slice into heaven with a raspberry jam bar! These have a shortbread crust, are topped with homemade raspberry jam and more shortbread. They're baked until golden, cooled completely (the hardest part) and then enjoyed immediately! These can be eaten as is or can be made fancy with raspberry mousse and extra jam. Oh yeah, baby! Let's do this.
