This recipe lends itself to multiple change ups. Most any hearty vegetable can sub in for the squash; use your favorite cheese and change up the herbs as you like. […]

This is one of my favorite go to pie pastry recipes. It’s been around a long time. I found it in an old pie book, can’t recall where but I’ve tweaked it a bit here and there over the years. So slab pie is just a pie that is baked in a sheet pan–this recipe […]
