A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Pie Night

The premise was simple: bake a homemade pie and bring it over for some good old fashion eating and judging. We had ten entries and three categories with prizes: Best Overall, Best Taste and Best Presentation.

Of course we had to have a little snow to keep things festive.

In order to keep all the deliciousness straight I made numbers to place atop each pie.

I decided to stay with a classic; Martha Stewart's Crumb Top Apple Pie. I am happy to report it tied for third in the Best Taste category.

This little over achiever made two pies: apple pie and key lime pie. Her apple pie placed third for the Best Presentation category and tied for second in Best Overall category.

Jeff and Janelle kept it simple and made a pumpkin pie.

Lynn's Apple Cranberry Pie won for the Best Presentation and tied for second in the Best Overall category.

Dave and Alyce were adventurous and created a clever combination with their pumpkin ice cream pie.

Cali and Ray could not go wrong with another classic pumpkin pie.

Robert impressed the audience with his second attempt ever at making a pie, the first being a test version of this Pecan Pie. He tied for third in the Best Taste category.

Kristi brought her pie straight from the oven, which helped her land first place in the Best Taste category with her Blackberry pie.

Cameron and Steve did their best to keep things light and fun throughout the night. Although they do not spend much time baking, they sure are a lot of fun to have around.

The aftermath of deliciousness.

The big winner of the evening: Lynn, my Mom and Kristi. As hostess I was able to stand among the greatness.

Merry Christmas
