Simple Egg Pie - All that's Jas

Layers of filo pastry soaked in egg mixture then baked to golden perfection make this simple egg pie. Simple Egg Pie This egg pie (jajara – /yaya-ra/) recipe has been handed down through generations.

Roasted Butternut Squash with Pecans and Blue Cheese - All that's Jas

Simply roasted butternut squash, dressed up with fresh thyme, pecans, and blue cheese is what you’ll always find on my holiday table.
