Paula Deen Would Be Proud...

After church today I spent the afternoon baking several desserts for Labor Day parties we're going to tomorrow...for my Family Get Together I made a Sour Cream Pound Cake (my first ever)! And for our Small Group Bible Study Dinner I made a Chocolate Chip Pie and a Crunch Top Apple Pie. Our house now smells AMAZING!!

Here's the recipe for the Chocolate Chip Pie--you should really try it!

1 C. sugar

1/2 C. all-purpose flour

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 C. (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled

1 C. pecans (optional)

1 C. semisweet chocolate chips

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Mix sugar and flour together in a bowl; add eggs, butter, pecans, chocolate chips, and vanilla, and stir. Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake for 45 to 60 minutes or until set.

Serve with vanilla icecream or sweetened whipped cream.

*I leave out the pecans and put EXTRA chocolate chips because I'm a chocoholic!!

Let Me Introduce Myself...

My name is Anne Rains--I'm a real estate agent and insurance agent. I enjoy what I do, especially because I work from home--no traffic or commuting for me! I graduated Cum Laude May 2007 from Georgia College & State University with a Business Management degree. I enjoyed my time there, especially since I was in the Delta Zeta sorority and was actively involved.

I got married this past March to my handsome hubby, Matt, and am loving married life...especially decorating our new home! He is a man who wears many hats...he's a real estate agent, real estate appraiser, Website developer, and he teaches a real estate technology class to real estate agents. We work together as a Real Estate Team and have lots of fun helping people find and buy their dream home!

My free time is spent cooking and baking--I absolutely love being in the kitchen and making new things. I also enjoy traveling--I have hopes of seeing the whole world someday. I've already spent 3 amazing weeks in AUSTRALIA for study was the most fun I've ever had--everyone should go if they get the opportunity!!
