Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup

Cold weather is soup weather. Classic tomato soup and grilled cheese has been a favorite since I was a kid - but my taste buds have changed a lot since then, and although tomato soup is still a favorite - this roasted red pepper and tomato is a perfect combo with a more sophisticated flavor - the sweet, smoky peppers go fabulous with the tomato soup. Mmmm!  We are sharing the recipe on Or So She Says today - find the printable version there too! 

Stay warm and enjoy some soup!

Buttermilk Pie

Do you have all your pie ideas lined up for Thanksgiving this week? If not, or even if you do, you might want to consider this. For us, this Buttermilk Pie is a newly discovered favorite!  We love tradition, food, and family, and we also love to try new things.  This was a pie we tried last year for Thanksgiving and we absolutely fell in love!  For Leesh, as a non-pie lover, this has seemed to convert her!

This custard pie has Southern roots, so you should definitely use a Southern accent when referring to it. It makes me think of one of my dear friends from Alabama when I say it in my head.  It is so easy to make-- Stir and dump! We're talking a short list of pantry-staple ingredients and pouring it all into an unbaked pie crust.  .  You can also make it a couple of days ahead of time which is always a win when you have lots of things competing for oven time during the Holidays.  It's great chilled or at room temperature. 

To me, this pie tastes like the marriage of flan and crème brûlée. The flaky crust compliments it so well!  Rich, creamy, custard-y, and not overly sweet.  It will definitely be showing up again as part of our dessert spread at Thanksgiving dinner this year and most likely fro mhere on our as it keeps winning us over and over again. 

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert?  Have you tried Buttermilk Pie?  Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!  

Buttermilk Pie


Pastry for 1 pie crust
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons flour
½ tablespoon vanilla
⅛ teaspoon salt
½ tablespoon lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place all ingredients into a saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring often,  for 5 minutes,  or until all ingredients are melted.
Pour mixture into unbaked pie crust and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the filling is firm and golden.
Allow pie to cool to room temperature before slicing.  Top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. It tastes great chilled or at room temperature.

Leesh and her family celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving in October - and she text me a picture of this beautiful and delicious dish.  Needless to say, I was practically drooling on my phone!  I knew I had to make it - and it was a hit!  We loved it!  I absolutely love roasted vegetables and this medley of fall veggies was not just tasty but so beautiful.  Doesn't it just scream fall to you?  It does to me!  Anyhow, if you're in charge of a veggie at Thanksgiving or perhaps just want to mix up your veggie some week night, this is for you!
