Sugar Cream Pie Recipe and Bruschetta for a light summer dinner!!

Good day to you all,

Hope you are all enjoying this lovely Sunday afternoon.

Since you all seemed to love my Sugar Cream Pie from my last post, I decided to post the recipe!  I got the recipe originally from our pastor's wife.

Sugar Cream Pie

1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
2 cups milk, divided
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla
1 baked deep pie shell

Combine sugar, butter, and 1 1/2 cups milk in a sauce pan until boiling.  Dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/2 cup milk until smooth, then add to mixture.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until bubbly and thick.  Remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla.  Cool slightly, then pour into baked pie shell.  Sprinkle the top with nutmeg.  Serve when firm.

Last night, it was just my sister and I home for dinner.  So we decided to do a lighter dinner and have Bruschetta.

First off, I made some Spelt French Bread, which turned out wonderful!!

I had made the topping earlier in the day, cause it had to chill for a few hours.

We had a salad that went along with it as well.
It was loads of fun, and super yummy!!


  1. Thank you for posting the recipe for pie, sounds good. Your simple dinner is really spectacular, making a french bread is not that easy, i'm amazed by your cooking skills.

  2. The bruschetta looks spectacular! And that pie equally so. It has been a long time since I made bread since we have so many good bakeries in the Chicago area. However, many years ago I did Julia Child's 27-page recipe for French bread!!!!! Simple ingredients, lots of explanation. I really enjoy seeing what you come up with next!!!!!


  3. Now wouldn't this just be perfect for tonight's meal. It's so hot that nothing has whetted my appetite, that is until I saw this. Looks delicious!

  4. I am craving some of the bruschetta right now! Perfect for a hot evening when you dont want to cook a big meal.

  8. It all looks delicious! Thanks for posting the pie recipe. I have all the ingredients on hand and I think I'll make it this afternoon.

  9. Everything looks delicious. I've never worked with spelt flour and will have to attempt it soon. Your bruschetta is a great motivator and your bread a grand place to begin. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary
