Pear Cranberry Holiday Pie Cups

Every so often, I open my inbox to a message that says, “Do you sell your pies?”  My answer is always the same – no.  In every response, I go on to explain that I will gladly make pie for anyone,  I just don’t accept money. This inevitably leads to an uncomfortable exchange, with the […]

Spiced Blueberry Citrus Pie

My host son is a pie fanatic. He would eat a pie everyday if I let him.  In fact, twice now he has taken a whole pie to school for lunch.  If he appreciates one thing about America during his year here, at least I know that pie will be towards the top of the […]

Eva’s German Christmas Cookies

These cookies are hearty and spicy and make you think of gingerbread houses and small German villages.  I’m obsessed with them and have added them to the mandatory rotation of family Christmas cookies.  Like all recipes, I followed Eva’s notes and then made some of my own adjustments like adding some salt and vanilla and […]

Peach Pie

Peaches and dreams. That about sums up my experience making this pie. What was intended to be a simple summer pie ended up being a catalyst for summoning some of the best summer memories. As I was preparing my peaches, my mind wandered to the summer I spent working at a local road side fruit […]

Pear Eggnog Winter Pie

It’s 2012 and the best thing to do for a new year is to come clean and start fresh. Don’t get excited – there’s nothing juicy here like sordid affairs, slipping my kids Benadryl so they will sleep, or a problem with shop lifting. My confessions are rather mundane, but they are mine and blogging […]

Cranberry Apple Holiday Pie

The calendar need only read December 1st and visions of orange zest, nutmeg, clove and spice start swirling in my head. How quickly I break up with pumpkin pie and move on to the warm, intoxicating smells of the winter holidays. December is a month that I spend in my kitchen trying to recreate the […]

Sweet Potato Pie

According to me, you get total pie street credit if you’re from the South. If you have an accent and hail from any of the states below Ohio, I automatically assume that you are harboring your Great Grandma’s family pie recipe and that you know some worldly secrets about great pie making. After all, don’t […]

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 […]

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. […]

Pumpkin Pie Bites

* Update – I made these hand pies again and used a 2 1/2 inch diameter glass to make them a little smaller. This allowed me to get a dozen from 1 recipe of dough and the serving is a little smaller (which means less calories!). Fall has me feeling like pie (shock, so did […]
