Apple Picking in Elijay and Apple Pie

I went apple picking in Elijay, Ga over the weekend with some friends and came back with a bag of apples. I wasn’t going to be able to eat all these apples before they go bad so I decided to make a mix apple pie!

Buttermilk-Currant Scones with Lemon Glaze

I bought some buttermilk yesterday with thoughts of making homemade hush puppies to go with my corn and potatoes for a crawfish broil at my house. We ended up with a lot of food so I decided to forgo the hush puppies and therefore did not use my buttermilk. This...
