American Pie

          I know this isn’t that healthy but it is delicious! When I saw this photo in the magazine I really wanted to eat it. It looked so pretty! The colors of the pie and the organization of the fruit were very aesthetically pleasing for me. I really wanted to recreate the image that made my mouth salivate. This reminds me of my family’s Fourth of July traditions of making food with the colors of our nation. I made this pie for this year’s family tradition and I recreated it for the Chapman University’s swim team baking competition and everyone loved it! I felt like I became an artist while making this dish. This is a total American themed dish and making it made me proud to be an American!


  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • 2 jars of Jet-Puff filling
  • 2 bars of regular cream cheese
  • Graham cracker pie crust

To make this delicious pie, you mix the jet-puff filling and cream cheese in a blender or food processer. Once blended, spread into the graham cracker pie crust and decorate with the strawberries and blueberries. Enjoy one of my favorite deserts!!


About allisonharf

Hey everyone, my name is Allison Harf and currently I am a junior at Chapman University majoring in Communication Studies. The theme to my blog is cooking healthy, well-balanced meals while living on your own. Everyone knows the first time they had to cook a meal for themselves they did not know what to make, well, that’s why I am writing this blog. Ever since I was a child, I always helped my mother make dinner. Now, being an athlete in college I realize that a healthy and well-balanced meal is extremely necessary for everyone and every lifestyle. I plan on alternating each week between chicken, beef, fish and a vegetarian dish. For each meal I make, I plan on adding all of the necessary nutritional facts so you guys can see the nutritional value. So check out on my blog weekly to discover a new healthy meal to try. Please let me know if you guys have any suggestions or comments so that I can make my blog and my meals more entertaining and exciting for you!

    This is my favorite patriotic treat! My family has this every fourth of july and I love the decoration. Great connection between being a great cook and great artist all at the same time. I also agree that it makes me salivate when looking at the picture.

    I love this blog! I wish I was a good cook, but these really help. Especially now that I’m in college it will be nice to eat outside of the caf.
