Vegan pie: WHAT? Mind= blown

Hello pie lovers! How is the end of summer treating you? I know I am pretty excited about fall flavors...I'm sure you are too. Time to say goodbye to the luscious strawberries with tart rhubarb, or the creamy decadent lemonade, and say hello to the melting essence of our pumpkin and sweet potato. You know, fall and winter are the perfect months out of the year to cozy up to one of Kemmy's sweet pies, considering you will need some extra weight to keep you warm.

The golden couple of my family, would be my sister Amy and her fiancee Alexander. They are the true core of what hard work and patience will give you. We are all undeniably excited for their June wedding in Key West. But that is not why I am mentioning them now. Xander has had food allergies since birth, and some have faded away, but he recently had some health scares in this last year, involving his throat area. See walking around with a swollen throat, unconsciously, is not very enjoyable. As of about two weeks ago, he was given a lists of food he shouldn't be eating. Minimizing any intake of dairy, soy, nut (including coconut and sunflower),  and gluten. Coming from a family who makes everything with those products. It has been a little hard, because Xander is a complete pie connoisseur, and he was very disappointed with the news. My mom had to make at least a little something sweet for him, and she discovered a brand new delicious recipe for...vegan pie!!! Yayy! Finally. Let me tell you how absolutely delicious it was. It contains Earth balance vegan butter, organic rice flour, water, chia seeds, and raw sugar. All our pies contain less than half the amount of sugar, than what a normal store bought pie has. That is why are company is special, because we let the wholesome fruits and ingredients speak for themselves. And with this vegan pie, I captured every symphonic note the ingredients made with my tongue. Kemmy made it in the flavor of strawberry rhubarb, and I went to heaven with the first bite. What I also like about this pie, is that it makes you feel full and satisfied very soon. Depending on your appetite, it doesn't give you the urge to over eat it. I wasn't surprised though. My mom can take any ingredient, and make it taste great no matter what. Hopefully I get that talent sooner or later. As of right now, I am a no-go for cooking anything solo.

That's all I have for you wonderful people today. Have a great sunny day, and tonight do one little thing for me, while you sleep.. dream of pie!
