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”
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”
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”
Has anyone who says: “easy as pie” ever actually made a pie? Because if so, they’d know it’s anything but easy. It’s time consuming and messy and tiring and…absolutely delicious. But for real, a lot of recipes can be seriously hard work.
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”
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”
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). We all know Banana Cream Pie is delicious—definitely in my top 5 favs. So naturally a Chocolate Banana Cream Pie is right up my alley. You can’tContinue reading “Chocolate Banana Cream Pie”
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”
HapPIE New Year’s Eve! 🍾 NYE always calls for a little a lot of champagne. And since you can never have enough bubbly, today I’m pouring some in a pie. Why not? New Year’s Eve is overhyped pretty much 100% of the time. But not this year folks.
