Mom’s apple pie

This is the same apple pie recipe my mom has been using for as long as I can remember. In my opinion, no other pie is better, though I am perhaps a bit biased. Thanks for teaching me how to make pie mom!

This recipe is for one double-crust pie. I use the same crust recipe for all my pies. If you are making single crust pies like pumpkin, this crust recipe will make two pies.

Greek lasagna

This dish has many of my favorite things – the tomato sauce and noodles of a traditional lasagna, spinach found in many vegetarian lasagnas, and eggplant found in Greek dishes like moussaka.

Peppernuts

This recipe comes from my mom’s dad’s mom. It seems that we make more every year around Christmas time, as more and more friends expect their share of the tasty, gingerbread-like cookies that look a lot like dog food. They taste quite a bit like gingerbread, though they have no ginger. The name is also similar to the German Pfeffernüsse, but they do not have anise.
