Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie

Many people love fruit pies. Not me. I love fruit, but it’s best fresh or dried, and usually unsweetened. Let’s have fruit as part of our meal, and have our dessert be a pie that’s smooth and creamy, like this Coconut Cream Pie. Coconut Cream…

Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy early Pi Day! I thought about waiting until tomorrow, Pi Day , to talk about pie, but honestly, which is better? Making a pie on Pi Day, or making the pie the day before so you can eat it on Pi Day? I’d rather you…

Pecan Fudge Pie

Pecan Fudge Pie

I’ve finally rediscovered a recipe for a Pecan Fudge Pie after, oh, about a decade. It was years ago (maybe 2007?) when I was in Houston and went to a place (a diner? I can’t remember the name) that was supposed to have amazing pies.…

Blueberry Pie

Blueberry Pie

Happy Pi Day! I had a bunch of frozen blueberries, so I made a blueberry pie. I have a cold right now, so this recipe was about as much effort as I wanted to put into a pie – minimal. But the results are wonderful! 

Caramel Apple Pie

Caramel Apple Pie

I love fall. It’s hard to believe how far into fall we are. However, it’s also hard to believe I have an 8-month old. One of the things that I enjoy, and that I missed doing for a few years, is apple picking. I finally…

Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie

Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie

Our baby is one month old! Recently my life has been changing diapers, nursing, and napping. It’s a good thing that I stocked my freezer with meals and all the bread I made last December, because we’ve gone through just about all of it. I…

Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

Did you know that January 23 was National Pie Day? (Not to be mistaken with Pi Day, which is 3/14, but can be celebrated equally well with pie.) The only reason I know is because I looked up US food holidays last month when Alex…

Slab Pie

Slab Pie

At some point in July, I recalled that I’d read once about a flat pie. Not a galette or a free-form, open-pie. A large, flat, double-crusted pie that was perfect for sharing with a large group of people, without a high ridge of crust along…

Vegan Pecan Pie

Vegan Pecan Pie

I made a fantastic pecan pie last weekend – and it just happened to be vegan. You heard that right – an egg-free and dairy-free pecan pie. It was quite good. Just as sweet and flavorful as the original!

Fresh Blueberry Pie with Flaky All-Butter Pie Crust

Fresh Blueberry Pie with Flaky All-Butter Pie Crust

Can you believe it’s already mid-August? The summer has flown by, it seems. In a lot of ways, summer isn’t so different from any other time of year when you’re not in school. My job was tied to the academic year until about 2 years…
