Original Green Bean Casserole | Apple Pie

For Thanksgiving, I brought green bean casserole, yams, and apple pie over to my future in-laws’ house. They’re Italian, and until last year, had never had green bean casserole of yams the way that I make them (recipe previously posted), and it’s nice to bring my tradition over to theirs. I don’t generally like cooking out of a can of soup, but it’s a classic that I just love.

The apple pie is a recipe that I looked up on Food Network’s website. It was on a special about Blue Ribbon winners. It took forever to cook the apples on the stovetop, but it was well worth it. You can’t rush it, or the apples will burn. I decided to try a lattice top, and it looked really pretty. I realized that it’s the first pie I’ve ever made on my own. I used to make them with my grandma all the time when I was little, but haven’t tried it since. It turned out really great.
