My cherry pie!

I had a ton of cherries left behind by my guests. I love cherries but I am pretty sure my tummy would be quite sore if I ate that whole bowl. So instead of having an upset tummy I figured I would put my own spin on a cherry pie. I only used what I had on hand and it turned out fantastic.

 First I used my remaining graham cracker crumbs and didn't quite have enough to fill my pan at first so I took some graham crackers and smashed them up really fine. Then I melted margarine and mixed the graham crumbs until it was all moistened. 

 Because I had fresh cherries I had to pit them all. So after some tedious work I placed my cherries in a saucepan and put them on medium heat. Let them cook for about 10-15 mins stirring occasionally. As they heat through they will release their juices. Add a tsp. of vanilla.

In a separate bowl mix together 1 cup of sugar and 4 tbsp of corn starch. The amount of sugar varies by the kind of cherries you have, if you have tart cherries use more, for a sweeter variety use less. Add the corn starch mixture to the cherries and stir until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat and pour into the pie crust.

Now pop that baby in the oven for about half an hour at 350 degrees. Remove and serve with ice cream or whipping cream. I'm sure this would be great as a cheesecake to. I hope your having a wonderful long weekend!

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!
