Speaking of March, both of my siblings' birthdays are in March. Actually, my friend Michele--who really should be considered a sibling--shares a birthday with my bro. They were twins separated at birth, by a year. Figure it out.

Anyway, it's still February. This month my hubby and my newest sibling, Andrew the Brother-in-Law, celebrate their birthdays. And I helped them. Because, as my dear friend Suzanne always says, "Birthdays are a BIG deal!"
|Flour, butter, sugar... YUM!|
Andrew celebrated his birthday on Tuesday, although somewhat secretly (to avoid being showered by his fraternity brothers... teehee). And, since I really really really reeeeeeally like celebrating birthdays, I made his favorite apple pie.
You see, I have connections. I know his mom. And I remembered that she once told me he prefers Dutch Apple Pie (aka. crumb topping), and that she showed me the combination of three recipes she uses.
|If Yogi Bear tried to steal the pie, he might get stuck in my tiny kitchen, so I figured the pie was safe to let cool on the stove top.|
Happy Un-Birthday to you, friend!
(Or happy birthday, on the off-chance that it is, actually, your birthday today. I hope someone bakes you a pie.)
