Blast from the Past: Recipes of May 2010

I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts.  I have been going back and looking at them.  It’s been fun.  I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW.  Over Ten years.  I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about the recipes I shared in May of 2010.


I was getting LOTS of eggs from my chickens and making lots of goodies that used eggs.  This was the latest installment of recipes that use eggs.


This is called Impossible Pie.  It’s one of those recipes that you have to try just because, quite frankly, it sounds impossible.

Mix together:
4 eggs
2 c milk
1 c sugar
1/2 c flour
1/2 c melted butter
2 t vanilla
1 c coconut

It will be in a liquid form.  Pour into a 10″ pie pan.  I don’t have a 10″ pan so I put mine in a round casserole.  If you use a 9″ pan, it will run over.  (trust me on the this tip)   Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.   The pie “makes it’s own crust” and tastes a bit like a coconut custard.

It’s not a beautiful looking dish but could be spruced up with a bit of whipped topping and strawberries if you like.

Kramer proclaimed to not be a fan of coconut yet he really liked this and I made it quite often.

I had to laugh looking back on the old posts as the chickens had gotten into trouble.  I wrote…My wayward chickens dug out all but a foot of my row of garden lettuce.


I quickly had them arrested.   They spent the night in jail waiting for the jury to deliberate.  The verdict came in this morning…guilty.  They were released after time spent and a wing clipping.


May this offense never happen again.   If it does…I am afraid they will be sentenced to the soup pot.

Awe…I miss the chickens.  Karl and I have been talking about getting chickens but currently our town doesn’t allow them.  Back then we were living on the farm and having them wasn’t an issue.  Hmm.  Is it worth ruffling some feathers to see if they would allow chickens in town?  I wonder how bad do I really want them or if this is only a whim.  Hmmm.

I also gave out another recipe for Sour Cream Apple Pie.  It’s been a great recipe for using up some of those raunchy apples that didn’t get eaten in their prime.  Kramer loved this.

Here’s the recipe.

2 eggs
1 cup sour cream (I used vanilla yogurt)
1 c sugar
2 T flour
1 t vanilla
3 c chopped apples
In a large bowl, beat eggs.  Add sour cream, sugr, flour, and vanilla.  stir in apples.  Pour into unbaked pie shell.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.  While that is baking combine
3 t butter
1/4 c brown sugar
4 T flour
Sprinkle the mixture on top of the pie.  Return to the oven and bake 20-25 more minutes until the filling is set.  Cool and refrigerate leftovers…if there are any.

Well seeing that pie and remembering how good it is has me off and running.  I’m hoping there might be a few raunchy apples in the refrigerator.  Whoever hopes for raunchy apples??  Well I think I’ll make it even if there are good apples.  Aw…I don’t know if I have good ones either.  I guess I best go check it out.

  1. The Impossible Coconut Cream Pie is my favorite ! But I have never made it with flour instead of Bisquick. This I will have to try! I always have flour, and Bisquick is expensive! Thanks for the tip!

    Nice to get recipies – the apple one I may need to try – just hard to justify a whole pie with only the 2 of us. I am not a coconut fan so won’t be trying that one even though Roger liked it. The chicken story is a fun memory but if they eat the lettuce that would indeed be a sad situation. Our lettuce is peaking through in the garden.

  3. I’ve made that Impossible Pie lots of times, but, like Connie, I always used Bisquick not flour, as that’s what the recipe called for. I’ll have to try that. Fun to look back at your posts.

  4. I have made the Impossible Pie many times, but it has been a while….thanks for reminding me I need to make it again!

  5. YES!! I want chickens too! I hadn’t assumed our town even had rules against them. If you two decide it’s more than just a whim, I would gladly talk to some city council members with you to see if they would change their minds.

  6. Pies sound yummy. Thanks! Interesting about the chickens. Our city/town allows 4 animals per house lot. So you can have 4 cats or 2 cats & 2 dogs or 2 dogs & 2 chickens, etc; no goats or cows & other animals but chickens are allowed. I think roosters allowed only on 1 acre (or larger) lots. Then the chicken pen has to be so many feet away from your lot line. Good luck with changing your city’s regulations.

    Perhaps now is the time to approach the power-that-be in your town to see if they would allow a certain number of chickens to be kept in people’s backyards, with the probability of shortages of chickens/eggs in the stores. They just might decide, for the good of the townspeople, to all it.

  8. Your Impossible Pie recipe brought back special memories of my grandma so I made it today. Hubby and I both love it. I shouldn’t be baking since it’s just the two of us but I couldn’t resist. Thanks for bringing back such memories. Next up, her “Pink Salad” with cherry pie filling, cool whip, and I can’t remember what else. Will have to try to locate her cookbook.

  9. The sour cream apple pie is in the oven. it smells heavenly. I did add some cinnamon to the apples and substituted quick oats for the flour in the topping. Did you mean 3 teaspoons of butter for the topping? I used 3 tablespoons of butter, because you can’t ever have enough butter!
