Pineapple Mule

In the spirit of channeling the tropical weather with this Caramelized Pineapple Cream Pie, I put the leftover pineapple to good use. Plus I wanted to finally use this awesome copper pineapple cup. It was a birthday gift and is seriously adorable. So this Pineapple Mule was born. It’s tropical, fruity and refreshing…everything you need onContinue reading “Pineapple Mule”

Caramelized Pineapple Cream Pie

It did not remotely feel like summer in Chicago this weekend. I woke up to a forecast of 44 and cloudy. We can only hope summer will make an appearance by August. So naturally in protest I channeled tropical weather vibes the best way I know how…pie. Nothing says summer like pineapple, right? So sitContinue reading “Caramelized Pineapple Cream Pie”

Southwest Chicken Pot Pie

It’s been gloomy and rainy all weekend in Chicago. The kind of weather that makes me want to do absolutely nothing. Do you think Spring will ever make an appearance? Saw this yesterday and it’s almost too accurate… Thanks for nothing, Spring. Since I’m pretty sure we’ll never get out of winter, we might asContinue reading “Southwest Chicken Pot Pie”

Nutella Pie

Hap-pie pi day, friends! Hope your day has been filled with lots of pie (sweet, savory, pizza…whatever floats your boat). No shame: I had pizza for lunch and dinner, plus pie for dessert. In honor of Pi Day I have a new *delicious* recipe. But first…there’s some Nutella controversy out there, so let me startContinue reading “Nutella Pie”

St. Patrick’s Day Mint Pie

As a kid I looked forward to St. Patrick’s Day solely for the McDonald’s mint shamrock shakes. I’m a fan all things mint—mojitos, thin mints, this pie… The problem was…shamrock shakes aren’t sold at every McDonald’s. So it was essentially a month long scavenger hunt. With no clues. 🤷‍♀️ But because people are lazy there’s anContinue reading “St. Patrick’s Day Mint Pie”

Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Breakfast Pie

During my three years in NYC, my favorite breakfast by far was bacon, egg, and cheese on an everything bagel. It didn’t matter if it was from a neighborhood bodega or a fancy bagel shop—there’s just no match to the cheesy, salty goodness. It’s everything you want when you’re so hungover you want to dieContinue reading “Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Breakfast Pie”

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie

Just because Valentine’s Day is over, doesn’t mean I’m going to stop eating chocolate. If anything, I’m going to go to the store and get more right now. It’s on sale. You can’t say no to a good sale. Last week I bought sandals solely because I had a coupon. It’s 30 degrees outside. IContinue reading “Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie”

Tart Cherry Pie

I like to optimistically think of February as the end of winter…but this morning I had to dig my car out of a foot of snow. So basically winter is never leaving. At least February brings a few fun holidays to help us forget about the dreadful weather (aka Mardi Gras & Valentine’s Day). NothingContinue reading “Tart Cherry Pie”
