Home Sweet Moments with Marie Callendars® & $100 Giveaway

Sweet Moments with Marie Callender's® Pies
How many times during your day do you appreciate the beauty in it?  Do you notice the flowers in the garden have bloomed?  Do you listen to your favorite music?  Do you sit and listen to what someone has to say?  Spending time with those you love has gotten harder than ever.  There comes a time when you realize you just have to slow down and enjoy the little things in life.  As you get older you might discover those little things turn into big memories.

Sweet Moments with Marie Callender's® Pies
The holidays are coming up and it will be a perfect opportunity for memory making.  Have you ever noticed how many memories are made around the table?  Preparing a meal and serving it to your loved ones is the perfect shared experience.   Are you getting visions of the movie National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation right now?  Is your grandparent generation sharing too much information around the table?  Do the teens ever look up from their phone?  Truly today's family has its own set of challenges but the memories may spontaneously happen just the same.   
The power of a shared experience is the stuff that bonding and memories are made of.  Chances are your best memories come from an experience you shared with others.  Life goes by so fast, when we gather it is important to savor these sweet moments.  No matter how awkward or tender these moments may be they are the stuff that life is made of.   
With the busy pace of life, serving homemade desserts can be a burden.  Marie Callender's® desserts can help you savor every moment.  Many of Marie Callender's desserts are simply thaw and serve.  With their made-from-scratch crust and homemade wholesome quality ingredients you can enjoy more time with friends and family for any occasion.

Photos of pie, especially Marie Calendar's Coconut Cream Pie, evoke memories of when I was a young girl in elementary school. My grandpa would pick me up from school in the afternoons and many days we would head to Hayloft Restaurant for a dessert, and if it was cold outside, a mug of hot cocoa. The waitresses at the Hayloft knew Grandpa by name because he was a regular customer and friend. The cook's nickname was Granny and she was actually older than Grandpa!! Granny's Coconut Cream Pie was amazing. I can still remember the first time I ever ate it - the flaky crust, the creamy filling brimming with toasted coconut will forever stay in my memory. I've been trying to relive that memory ever since. Marie Callendar's is actually incredibly close to how I remember Granny's tasting. That's why it's my favorite pie. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

That chocolate pie looks amazing, and is my daughter's favorite. I'll have to make it when she's here in January! Thanks for the recipe.

Hi Sherry,
I love your blue and white china and I'm sure your boys will enjoy those pies. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Autumn blessings,

I want to create a memory with my grandparents while they are still here. We love to sit at the table and catch up on our lives with pie and coffee.

We just had the coconut cream the other day. It's so good! Your china is gorgeous!! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I probably shouldn't have looked at this post while hungry :/.

All these pies look unbelievably delish, but that chocolate one has me swooning.

Margie said...

I want to create a memory for my little 22 month old granddaughter of coming to Grammy's house for Thanksgiving with the family.

There is a Marie Callendar pecan pie sitting in my freezer right now! It is the closet thing ever to my mom's home-made pecan pie.
Lovely post - you are so talented.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Carmen Whitehead said...

Yum! The Dutch Apple pie has always been my favorite!

Sarah said...

Sherry, we adore pies in this house! Just "liked" Marie Calendars on FB. We like their pies! '-)

I want to create memories of leisure time shared with my husband. We are headed out on a daily walk, a time when we share our thoughts. I'm very grateful to have a loving relationship and want to embrace the simplest of times together. Each day is a gift!

Thanks for the chance to win.
Happy Holidays to you.

Sarah said...

That toasted coconut pie is calling my name. '-)

Jann Olson said...

Sherry, Marie Calendars has always been my favorite pies. Love their coconut cream and the sour cream lemon they had at the restaurant. Everything they make is delicious! I love making memories with my family! I do stop and take the time to think about how thankful I am. This Thanksgiving all of my kids and some of their spouses made a pie and we had a pie tasting contest. It was so fun and something that we will remember and be talking about for years. We had a whole lot of yummy pies. It was hard to choose a winner! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

I want to create memories around the kitchen table with family. I think it's so important to try to eat dinner as a family.
