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”

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.

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”

Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

It’s almost February which means both Valentine’s & GALentine’s Day. Aka chocolate season. Aka it’s time to throw a bunch of chocolate into some pies (see: chocolate pie crust).

Happy National Pie Day! It’s the perfect excuse to eat pie for dinner so I hope you’re celebrating accordingly. But can we talk about pie crust for a hot second? We all know that a buttery, flaky crust is the secret to a perfect life pie. It’s the unsung hero if you will. Now letContinue reading “Chocolate Pie Crust”
