Derby Pie

4 Jun

I’m not sure when this became a food blog…. but I hope to come back in full swing this summer. In the meantime, I will try to catch up!

I love celebrating Derby and even though we didn’t have a big plan this year, I still wanted to serve Derby Pie to a few friends. I used a recipe from Paula Deen.
