Don’t settle for a boring pie crust. Pour your favorite pie into a brand new suit (a.k.a. different crust) to impress your holiday guests!
Graham Cracker crust:
To add a crumbly crunch to your favorite pie, simply mix crushed graham crackers with butter and spread evenly into a pie dish. Fill with fruits, crumbles, or even pumpkin for a twist on classic pies.
Feeling chocolate-y? This pie crust has got you covered! Mix crushed Oreos with butter and spread evenly into a pie dish. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a cream filling for a one-way ticket to Chocolate Town, USA.
Cinnamon Roll Crust:
Is there anything better than cinnamon rolls and pie? To achieve this, place raw cinnamon rolls in a circle and roll to 1/4-inch thickness. Lay rolled cinnamon rolls into pie dish and trim the excess. Add any type of filling you like- there is truly no wrong choice.
After being adventurous and changing up your pie crust, don’t forget about the classic flaky and buttery pie crust.

November is National Diabetes Month to bring awareness to this horrible disease. Diabetes is a condition where there is too much glucose (a type of sugar) in the blood. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), diabetes affects about 30 million Americans or 9.4 percent of the U.S. population. This includes 1 in 4 adults who are unaware they have the disease.
If you are over the age of 45, you should be screened for diabetes every 3 years. With a simple finger-stick, our pharmacy can screen for glucose or A1c levels. A1c testing is recommended every 6 months for patients already diagnosed with diabetes.
The most common types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.
Type 1 means your body doesn’t make insulin. Usually diagnosed in children and young adults, they need to take insulin to stay alive.
Type 2, the most common type, means your body doesn’t make or use insulin well and occurs most often in middle-aged adults.
Gestational diabetes develops in some pregnant women. Although most of the time it goes away, the chances of developing type 2 increases later in life.

Giving back. It’s on many of our minds during the holidays. It might be because a charitable gift or donation of some kind is on our To-Do list. Or we’re hearing a flood of TV commercials and ringing bells. Whatever the case, some of us will fulfill our good intentions this year while others will promise to make it happen next year when things are a little less hectic. But let’s be honest, will the holidays ever be less hectic? Probably not.
3 Easy Ways to Give…Any Time of the Year
- Keep a few cans of shelf-stable food in your car. Most of us have rolled up to stop lights and experienced that inner conflict over whether to help people on the corner asking for help. If we give money, will it be used in ways that are healthy and helpful? Or are they running a scam? We never really know for sure, but sometimes we get a sense that prompts us one way or another. Giving a large can of dehydrated soup or freeze dried fruit is a good way to help someone in need. Soup is easy to make and fruit can be eaten as a snack right out of the can. Both are hearty and nourishing and do not require refrigeration.
- Keep an ear out for friends or neighbors who might be struggling. The stress of single parenting, losing a job, or facing a financial rough patch can be extremely hard on families. Think about giving an emergency food pail that includes well-rounded breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. You will help feed a family several hearty meals that may just be the difference between hope and despair. For the holiday’s there’s even a Turkey Feast pail that includes all the fixins for a very tasty and easy-to-prepare Thanksgiving spread. What’s also nice is a sealed pail of shelf-stable food can be placed on a family’s front porch anonymously.
- Give hungry children a hearty breakfast. It’s shocking to hear that one in six children in America face hunger on a daily basis. Utah is no different. The good news is school programs provide free breakfasts during the school year. The bad news is school is not in session year-round. So, then what? Ask your church leader or your child’s school principal if he or she knows a family who struggles to feed their children a healthy breakfast when school is out. Consider asking that they pass along a large can of maple brown sugar oatmeal and a can of powdered milk to the family. Both are shelf-stable foods that will provide up to 40 servings of hot and nutritious cereal that will start their children’s day off right.
We hope you consider giving these easy and affordable ideas a try throughout the year. Meanwhile, Macey’s and Augason Farms wishes you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season.
