Come on in and have yourself some pie...

So, here I am. Not at BlogHer. Not at cool parties. Not hobnobbing with Blogosphere A-listers. In fact, I'm actually just kinda chillin' on the sofa with my hubby eating some delicious Buttermilk Pie (see below) and totally breaking our new "no eating after 9pm rule" because it's Friday and, darn it, if you can't fall of the diet wagon on Friday night then when else can you?

And, I'm trying to think the best way to introduce myself to all of you joining our regularly scheduled blogging via the Blog Hop.

So, who am I? Well, I'm kind of a cross between Lucille Ball, Bridgette Jones, and Mother Theresa. Okay, except for that last part. I meant, Mother Goose. 'Cause she wrote about a woman who lived in a shoe with a ton of kids and I write about life with two wild kids and sometimes parts of my house smell like a shoe.

Anyways, want to know more about me? I'm wife and a mommy to two crazy girls, a Bad Femininst who says ridiculous things to my children on a regular basis, and a mini hobby farmer in a completely suburban setting. I don't always fit in and I am generally okay with that.

So, there you have it. The Cliffs' Notes version of me.

And, now for some party food. I just so happened to have baked my favorite pie in all the world tonight and so I thought I'd share it with the rest of the world. Ladies, prepare yourself for your new favorite dessert.

The Buttermilk Pie

Oven: 350 for 45-50 minutes.
Yield: 1 (9-inch) pie

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 rounded Tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash Nutmeg
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell

Cream together sugar and butter. Add flour and eggs; beat well. Add buttermilk and flavorings. Pour into an unbaked 9-inch pie shell.
Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes, or until top is lightly browned.

Recipe from A Taste of Georgia cookbook.

I LOVE BUTTERMILK PIE AND HAVE YET TO FIND A "GOOD" RECIPE FOR IT!!! When we lived in SC, there was a restaurant who had a KILLER BM pie (sounds disgusting that way, huh) but they wouldn't give up the recipe. I am cutting and pasting right!now!

Thanks, too, for joining the BlogHop. I am s l o w l y getting to everyone on Mr. Linky, but my kids keep needing me (go figure) :).

Do you live in Atlanta? Might you be going to the BlogHer reach out thing in the fall? I'm thinking about it (or Nashville).

Thanks again!!
