J.C.’s Lemon Blueberry Pie
This is one of the amazingly delicious desserts going in my Dad’s cookbook. I waited to make this until yesterday, I didn’t think it would be that exciting. I was wrong, it was so good! This sweet, tangy pie is delectable with every bite. Get your face in this pie right now. 
My Dad’s recipe calls for a graham cracker crust, but I had ground almond flour in the pantry, so I decided to make gluten free almond crust so my Sister could have some. I love the Almond crust! It’s got a buttery, nutty taste that plays against the creamy lemon filling and the fresh bite of fruity, blueberry topping. The whipped cream makes the whole thing extra decadent and it’s fun to use the whipped cream air canister thingy. 
For blueberry topping: The recipe calls for canned blueberry pie filling, but I had a bag of organic blueberries in my freezer so I made it from scratch. In a saucepan, 2 cups frozen blueberries, the juice of 1 lemon, 1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch, 2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Simmer until it thickens up and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350.
For the crust, the easiest method is to buy a pre made graham cracker crust, or you could make graham cracker crust from scratch, or do the scratch made Almond crust you see here. Combine 4 tblsp melted butter with 1 1/2 cups ground almond meal, (or 1 1/2 cups ground up Graham crackers) a pinch of salt and 2 tblsp brown sugar. Press into the bottom of a pie dish and up the sides. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes and cool. 
For the lemony filing: Mix 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 3 egg yolks, the juice and zest of 1 lemon. Pour into the pie shell and bake for 12 to 18 minutes until it firms up. Cool. Serve with the blueberry sauce and whipped cream. Yum!! Refrigerate the leftovers if there are any.

Looks delicious!!!

Anonymous asked: Just wondering - why do you support disney? Walt has a long history of being a sexist, racist man. Why would you want to follow that?

disneylandguru:

I don’t know if you are aware much of History at this time period but everyone was, Walt Disney was pretty fair compared to most.There was the labor issues that were in the forties and stuff like that. But by and large, no.” That will come as a surprise to anyone who has read mentions of Walt Disney’s alleged anti-Semitism, or his cryogenically frozen head, or any of the other rumors that swirl around the icon. So in order to get things straight, here is a factual analysis of all the many charges laid against Walt Disney in real life. Spoiler alert: He is not buried beneath Pirates of the Caribbean.

He was hiring other races and letting them into Disneyland before others were. I have a big post about how Walt make big moves in this way after song of the south came out, and I have posted about many women and just did today that worked under Walt.

a Historical  animation expert said that there were no women anywhere in Hollywood at the time; they were relegated to inking and painting. He explained, “That was an industry-wide practice. There were, however, a number of women working at [Disney] in a creative capacity during that time, mostly in story development.”

In 1941, Disney defended women to the men working on Dumbo, stating, “If a woman can do the work as well, she is worth as much as a man. The girl artists have the right to expect the same chances for advancement as men, and I honestly believe they may eventually contribute something to this business that men never would or could.” 

Disney hired his first female animator, Retta Scott, in 1942 for Bambi, and Mary Blair was the art supervisor and color stylist for Saludos Amigos, The Three Caballeros, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. By 1959, Disney was writing, “Women are the best judges of anything we turn out. Their taste is very important. They are the theatergoers, they are the ones who drag the men in. If the women like it, to heck with the men.”

Disney’s anti-Semitism is the biggest myth of all; Neal Gabler, author ofWalt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination, said,“It would be unfair to label him an anti-Semite himself, There is no evidence whatsoever in the extensive Disney Archives of any anti-Semitic remarks or actions by Walt.” Herman “Kay” Kamen, a Jew, was Disney’s merchandising chief, and Kamen once joked that Disney’s New York office “had more Jews than the Book of Leviticus.” 

Disney donated to The Hebrew Orphan Asylum of the City of New York, Yeshiva College, and the Jewish Home for the Aged.

The claims of anti-Semitism were drummed up by Snow White animators Art Babbitt and David Hilberman, who were furious when the animators went on strike in 1941. Disney was convinced the strike was fomented by communists, whom he hated, and he joined the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals, which was anti-Semitic but primarily anti-communist.

Douglas Brode, the Jewish author of Multiculturalism and the Mouse: Race and Sex in Disney Entertainment, said:

There is zero hard evidence that Disney ever wrote or said anything anti-Semitic in private or public. His films feature a wide array of great Jewish actors in the most diverse roles imaginable, more so than any other studio of Hollywood’s golden age, including those run by Jewish movie moguls. Finally, there is no evidence in the work of anti-Semitism via negatively portrayed Jewish characters. Disney, let’s recall, was the first filmmaker ever to cast a Jewish actor, Ed Wynn, as Santa Claus, in Babes in Toyland. We ought to give Disney the benefit of the doubt.

One of Walt’s former secretaries, Dorothy Wrigley, was recently  asked in an interview if she had ever seen any displays of racism or bigotry by her boss. Without hesitation, she said, “No.” She said he was always professional. Tough at times, yes, because he had a vision and knew what he wanted.

and now that I have given you a history lesson might I suggest a little something to you, Disney is not a perfect company, probably never will be but I choose to look at the GOOD it does! and OH does it do good! also I am a person that makes a stand against the same things you go on and on about (but I do my research and homework) might I suggest that you find ways to change the issues happening now instead of going after a man who can’t defend himself since he’s been dead for 48 years. Also another wrong thing to do is judge people so I also would like you to add to your list of wrong things as judging people for things you don’t understand so I hope that you will kindly stop judging myself and fellow Disney fans for what we choose to love!

Someone requested I make this rebloggable. Here ya go! 

I love what he has to say!
