Pop Tarts were my preferred choice of breakfast back in the days of high school. My mother was always concerned that I was not getting a healthy breakfast, but I was never an early riser and these were ready in a matter of minutes before I rushed out the door. After ten years, I no longer eat pop tarts, but I still rush out the door to head to work. Old habits die-hard. I was looking to make a sweet pastry pie, so I bought Bubby's Homemade Pies.

This has to be the most charming book that I own. It is a recipe book but also includes entertaining and decorating ideas for the month of autumn. The book is filled with watercoloured sketches, hand-written recipes and sentimental quotes.

These are family recipes that you will want to make time and time again.
