Apple pies, Jam and Sunflowers....

Last week I spent a lot of time making apple pies. I tried a few different recipes: one "Carmel Apple Pie," two "Sour Cream Apple Pies," a "Cherry Apple Pie" and then one or two of my old stand by recipe. They were so beautiful! I will be making more too!:-) I'm a happy woman if I'm baking, doing anything w/ pictures or working w/ cattle...

This is pear/raspberry jam. It's so pretty w/ the sun shining through it:-)


It was really good too. I'm not a huge fan on raspberry jam so the pear made it a little less raspberry and just sweet. I had never made it before and I actually didn't even follow a recipe because I couldn't find one that worked for me, so I kind of made one of my own:-)

This pretty sunflower is one of the last:-( They are slowly fading. The bee's are all over the flowers that are in bloom right now. Storing up for the winter I guess.

You know, you can always send an apple pie this way once it gets a little cooler. Or you could freeze one for me when i come for thanksgiving ;)
