Cindy's Strawberry Pie

Mmmmm!!  Strawberry Pie!  This is, I think, the PERFECT pie!  Seriously, it is heavenly!

I was well into my 20's (nearly 30) when I tried my very first piece of Strawberry Pie.  We were having lunch at Clanton's and we decided to get dessert, which we hardly ever do.  I had heard how amazing their Strawberry pie was and since I like both pie and strawberries, I figured it couldn't be bad.

Oh! MY GOSH!  It was AMAZING!  But, there was just one problem.  I could only get this pie at Clanton's and it was VERY seasonal.  *sigh* *BIG SIGH*

This is where Cindy comes in.  Cindy happens to be my sister-in-love and seriously one of the sweetest, funniest gals you will EVER meet.  She is as beautiful as she is sweet, also.

Last year (I think it was last year, could have been the year before) my brother and Cindy came up to Oklahoma for something or other and Cindy made Strawberry Pie.  I was a bit hesitant going into my first bite because I was pretty sure it was not going to be as good as Clanton's.  Nothing against Cindy's cooking....Clanton's pie is just AMAZING.
I hesitantly took my first bite.
and...
it was like the stars aligned and Heaven opened.

OH! MY! STARS!

Sorry, Clanton's, but Cindy's pie was BY FAR SO MUCH BETTER!

It is perfectly sweet and perfectly strawberry-ish and just perfectly DELICIOUS!
Cindy's Strawberry Pie
1qt. Fresh Strawberries - sliced
3/4 C. Sugar
3 T. Cornstarch
1 1/2 Cup Water
3oz (small box) Strawberry Jello
9" Pie Crust
Cook Whip

Directions: 
Bake empty Pie Shell according to directions (or make homemade and pre-bake).  Set aside and allow to cool completly.
In medium-large saucepan heat water then slowly add Sugar and Cornstarch.  Stir constantly until you notice a change in color.  You want to try to get the mixture as close to clear as possible, this will take 10-15 minutes and the end result will be more of a cloudy clear than a clear, clear, your mix will also become thick.
Now you are ready to add your jello packet.  Continue to stir until fully dissolved.  Once dissolved, remove from heat and allow to cool 20-30 minutes.
While your Jello mixture is cooling, slice your strawberries.
After mixture has cooled, add your strawberries.  Mix well, but gently, and add to your pie crust.
Cool pie in fridge for at least 2 hours.
Serve with Cool Whip.

This recipe doubles easily!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
