Riley and a recipe

riley-12-28-08.jpgGuess what Santa brought! 

Well, she was a bit late for Christmas, but a sweet present to ourselves anyway!  

Now if only she will train quickly….*crossing fingers*.   :0)  If you have any tips, I’d love to hear them!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family!

Ok, so below is a recipe page I did a few months ago.  One of my favorite pies is a custard pie.  I just called this Berry Custard because I use blueberries or raspberries.  And if you are short on time, it can be baked in a baking dish without the crust- still yummy!

I used the House Mouse Pumpkin Pie image and just made the pie a different color.  The fun decorative paper is by Flair Designs and I purchased it at All That Scraps.  Christine has a ton of papers to choose from!

In case it’s difficult to read from the picture, here’s the recipe:6-x-6-berry-custard-diane-zechman.jpg

4 slightly beaten eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups  milk


fresh or frozen blueberries or raspberries

1 T. flour 

Blend the first four ingredients.  Stir in the milk.  Pour into a baking dish or unbaked pie shell and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Shake berries in a bag with the flour and add to the custard.  Bake @ 400° for 45 minutes.  Let cool and then refrigerate.

  1. oh how cute, Diane!!! That will sure make life interesting for awhile. Greg would have loved to get a dog for Christmas! Too bad his wife is such a humbug, lol

  2. Your puppy is adorable! What’s her name? How fun to have the pitterpatterof little feet in the house!
    Your recipe looks delicious as does the recipe page!

  3. Riley is so cute Diane! My tip for training her…. send her to live with Gayla or Kari for a couple of months 🙂

  4. I sooo agree with Michele! Let Gayla train 2 at once, I’ve heard that keeping them in a kennel makes it easier-but no experience here. Bailey was 6 months old when we got her and knew about such stuff. Riley is just adorable.

  5. hey it made me anonymous. I’m the previous comment!
