Creamy Lemon Pie by Carrie's Creations

Hello everyone and welcome to my first guest-written post! I am excited to share Carrie's post with you and introduce you to her and her amazing recipes! I really enjoy her style and I think you will, too!

Hi! I'm Carrie, the writer and photographer behind Carrie's Creations . I've recently relocated to New Jersey from Virginia and enjoy sharing my recipes with family and friends through my blog. 

One evening a few weeks back, I was watching a new show on HGTV, America's Most Desperate Kitchens, and saw Britney's episode. I felt drawn to her episode in particular because of the fact she enjoyed baking and blogging and she had the best personality! Later on, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw that Anthony Carrino reposted Britney's picture. Of course I clicked on her name, found her blog, started following and the rest is history!

This Creamy Lemon Pie will have you holding onto the last bit of summer with its perfect blend- not too sweet and not too tart.
