Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Creekside Farms, especially from the Mom (Carol/Nana) who started it all.
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate Mom and all Mother figures. The observance of the holiday began in the US in 1907 when Anna Jarvis had a memorial service for her mother. The idea of celebrating moms spread to most places in America and in 1914 the US president, Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday. It was to be observed on the second Sunday of May. Mother’s Day is now celebrated throughout the world with varying traditions and days of observance. Traditions vary depending on the country, including feasts, gifts, flowers, and wreaths (we love this one), festivals, songs, and giving Mom a day off to relax and be pampered. However you celebrate Mom, we wish everyone a wonderful day.
The Founder and Mother figure of Creekside Farms, Carol, would like to extend a special wish to all the Moms and Grandmothers, that their day is filled with love, laughter and relaxation. Did you know that Carol owned a restaurant before growing herbs and delving into the wreath making business? It was called, Not by Bread Alone, and there, among other things, she made lots of delicious desserts. Her favorite was apple pie, which she still enjoys making today with her grandchildren during the holidays. She says, “the secret to making a good pie, is a good crust.” She uses a no fail crust recipe as follows: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/15174/no-fail-pie-crust-i/ You can use your favorite filling recipe with this crust, or use the one for apple pie that Carol prefers: https://www.thespruceeats.com/apple-pie-or-dessert-filling-recipe-3050834 Carol uses flour instead of corn starch. Happy baking!
