Caramel Pumpkin Pie

There is a distinct rank and file to my Thanksgiving table: 1. Pumpkin Pie 2. Pumpkin Pie 3. Oyster dressing 4. Turkey Nothing upstages pumpkin pie in my book. About three weeks before Thanksgiving, I find myself drawn to every magazine at the grocery store. “Your best Thanksgiving Ever!” (Yes!) “A Pumpkin Pie to Wow […]

Pie it Forward: Norm and Carol – The Market Connection

Sometimes, you only need to look across the street to find some inspiration.  When it was time to choose my Pie it Forward suspect, I knew exactly who was next on my list. Norm and Carol’s house was the first one we noticed when we bought our new house in the Spring of 2010.  Every […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Bites

My parents came to town this weekend, so I wanted to knock their socks off with all this pie I’ve been ranting about (plus, if we’re being honest here, I knew they would play with the boys and I could bake!). I planned a pie-a-palooza of a weekend – dough experiments, mini pies, whole pies. […]

The L Word

I had to do it.  It was the natural next step.  It was time to make pie crust with LARD.  For some reason, I was having a hard time making the leap.  It’s the word – lard.  The first thing that comes to mind is the Lard A$$ pie eating contest in the movie Stand […]

Mini Apple Pie Bites

I’m feeling the consequences of too much pie. I think I am honestly hung over. It is not news that pie crust is nowhere near healthy – I’m not even going to try to claim the calcium from butter. Ian and I have been eating an average of one mini-pie a day…for the past month. […]
