Little Young's story


Little Young LOVES whipped cream...who doesn't?

Introducing...Little Young!!!




Little young, is the second youngest in the family...right next to (yes, we finally thought of a name for the youngest!!!) Gravy. Little Young is the cutest little two year old boy I've ever encountered! Yesterday, I was making my famous Buttermilk pie, and Little Young climbed up on the stool and started watching me. "I love you little guy," I whispered. "I love you Elsie!" He said, and he threw his arms around me...and as he did, he tipped mom's cup over which spilled everywhere!!! It was still HILARIOUS! He seems so smart for his age as well. We purchased some Pre-school prep DVDS a while back for extremely cheap off groupon a while back, and he is SO smart with them. You can right a small word on the easel and he'll point and say the word with a big cheesy smile. :) He's always willing to help, and whenever someone asks which kid he most looks like...well, we just don't know! He looks like a combination of Gus-Gus and Chuck in one! Little young will be having his 3rd birthday on June 15th. :D He is probably the funniest of all of us all. He'll say silly little jokes, normally just for attention...but he's so silly!

The first pic I took with my kindle...was this one....haha!!!!








Here...we are at a Christmas party, and little young loved the nutcracker! Can you imagine the joy of having a toy as big as you! Haha

My now famous Buttermilk pie recipe, tips, and secrets...shhh!!!

 Hey Everyone!


Ok, hope everyone's doing well. :) And I hope everyone's ready for Valentine's Day. :D On this post, I wanted to share my favorite dessert recipe in the entire world. It maybe not be anything like the Tiramisu you get at OG, but it's so delicious and not too sweet, as long as you DON'T follow the recipe, lol. This recipe makes one pie, but is easily doubled.




 Ingredients


-1 9" pie crust (optional...I never use it because it works well without. :)


-3 eggs
-A stick of butter (melted)
-3 TBS. flour
-1 1/2 cups sugar
-1 cup Buttermilk
-2 TBS. lemon juice
-1 tsp. Vanilla
-1/4 tsp. nutmeg




1. Whip eggs until frothy. (You'll see lots of little bubbles) Add butter, sugar, and flour. Stir well.


2. Add buttermilk, lemon juice, vanilla, and nutmeg. Mix.


3. Pour into pie plate (with your crust if you used it) and bake at 350 degrees F. for 35-45 minutes.


DO NOT OVERBAKE!!!
4. When done, let cool a little and slop on some whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. :) Taste, and enjoy.








Tips


-Let the pie crust set out for 20-30 minutes. It'll work so much better.
-Farm fresh eggs make this even more healthy.
-Organic Buttermilk...now that's GOOD!
-Don't underbake or over bake. This pie should be lightly browned, but still custardy.


My own secrets...shhhh!!!


-I use our homemade buttermilk.
-Farm fresh eggs.
-Make this as a breakfast meal! So yummy.
-I add more lemon and vanilla but less sugar (if I'm making this as a breakfast dish. You don't want it to be too sweet.)
-I suggest adding cinnamon as well. If your not a nutmeg fan, this is great. :D
