Not sure why, and it might be a mistake, but I think I have my mother-in-law talked into baking me an orange pie. That's right, you heard me, an orange pie. I know there are grape pies, cherry pies, strawberry pies, peach pies, and apple pies, but I never heard of anybody making an orange pie. So with that said, I'm going to venture out and see what happens. I'm hoping it will be good, and I think I have her understanding how I want it made. I'll either love it, or I'll end up walking away looking like I have bitter beer face. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. After I taste it, I'll let you know if I recommend it or not. Then again, if you don't hear anything from me, in let's say a week, then you'll know that my face sucked up so tight, that I couldn't see to type a response, and I'll have to wait until the swelling goes downs, or my face relaxes from the shock!

I'll keep you posted.............I hope!

I kind of think an orange cake would be pretty good. However after you do the orange cake and you don't get bitter beer face then you have to try a grapefruit pie. :D

Yeah That's the reason I've stopped going to Red Lobster. Every time they get something I really like, it's not on the menu the next time I go. They told me their twice baked potato was too labor intensive?

When we had the Fudge Shop I made Dreamsickle Fudge and it sold good. If you never try you never know. Good Luck.

They're already charging twice what it was worth, stands to reason they could bake it again...

Yeah I thought so too! I would not mind if I had not already waited 35 minutes to get a table. So I'll go next door to Olive Garden same wait but I know what they have.
