The Ballard House is an incredible place here in Cinco Ranch that provides short term overnight stays to families that are in our area due to a serious medical issue with themselves or a family member. These folks don't have money to afford expensive hotel night's. Proud Pie is excited to be able to cater a nice home cooked meal to these folks every 2nd Thursday of each month. Since we open up our bag of tricks and cook a meal from scratch that we do not offer in our Bakery, we decided to highlight recipes from each of our Ballard House nights and give you the recipes so that you can duplicate the home cooked meals we serve the folks at Ballard House. 

Enjoy!!
