Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are ready for the holiday tomorrow! I still have a ton of errands to run AND I need to make a homemade pie (our family is having a ‘best homemade pie’ contest) if any of you have a yummy pie recipe, or a filling idea you want to share I would LOVE any help I can get!

Today I’m sharing a look I wore a few Sundays ago. I love the bold red paired with the soft grey SJP pumps and sweater (and how cute is my furry accessory/photo bomber, he loves to tag along while Drew and I take photos).

  1. Love the contrast between the neutral grey and that gorgeous red. And the lipstick tops it off perfectly!

    Good luck with the homemade pie competition – salted caramel apple pie is divine!

  2. My family enjoys making a chocolate pie with meringue and chocolate chips on top,they also make a butterscotch pie with meringue and butterscotch chips on top (both my late grandma’s recipe) Both are to die for! My brother and I still fight over it till this day! Love the outfit..beautiful! And your baby is such a cute photo bomber! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Rachel,

    I have the best homemade apple pie recipe from my sweet Grandma, it’s been in the family for years and it is hands down the best, most simple apple pie! Super easy to make too. I love your blog, and hope you find this recipe helpful and maybe even use it.

    Pie Crust:
    2/3 cups shortening
    2 C flour
    1 t salt
    5-7 T of cold water

    * cut shortening into flour and salt mixture, then add T of cold water one at a time and form into two balls. Roll out to make top and bottom layer of pie.

    Pie Filling
    6-8 Granny Smith Apples, peeled
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    2/3 cup sugar
    1/3 cup corn starch
    1 T lemon juice
    2 T butter
    1 lg egg white
    2 tsp sugar

    *Combine sugar, cornstarch cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and apples and lemon juice

    Bake @ 400 degrees for 1 hour and 10 mins, let cool for 30 mins.

    1. Alex-

      Thank you SO much for the recipe!! This sounds amazing! Drew loves apple pie, I’m definitely going to have to use this.

      Xo!

  4. Stunning! In terms of pie you can do four fillings instead of one by dividing the pie into four quarters, peach Apple pecan and cherry were always our family favorites!

  5. Wow, that’s some bump you got going on in the second pic!
    Did I miss an announcement? You go girl!!!
    You are going to make the most beautiful baby.

  6. My go to dessert is an easy one, chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, Heath Bar (crumbled up) and Kahlua- I would make it as a truffle- and you can put whipped cream in between the layers and the layer with the cake put a little bit of the Kahlua on it. The top layer should be the whipped cream with the broken up bits of Heath Bar. I made this when my husband and I were dating- and all of his friends devoured it!
    Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you win!

  7. Oh my goodness those shoes! Lovely color combo! You always have such beautiful color combinations I wouldn’t have thought to put together. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!
