I’m a fairly traditional person, especially with my holidays.

I make eggs benedict every Christmas morning because that is what my dad made every year since I can remember. The kids and I make peanut butter balls every year because that is what my mom did with my sister and I.  I even listen to the same holiday CD’s from my childhood.

I had the hardest time after moving to California, because my FIL grills his Turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m a stuff and roast girl for sure.

But pie, for me that is a tradition that I would LOVE to break. NO matter how hard I try, I cannot get a pie to turn out. My crust, forget about it, Fluted edge, NO way. Sure, they may taste great, but they look horrid.
