S’more Pudding Pie, please

So this was supposed to post on Presidents Day, but I guess it didn’t! Per usual these days, here in southern California anyway, it is February and the temperature is a crisp 80 degrees. That being said, I didn’t want to turn on my oven last week to make dessert! Fortunately, I have a solid, […]

Peach Pie

My friends and I were doing dinner and a movie one night, Parenthood, back during stone fruit season so I’m sorry this is super late, and I wanted to make a dessert that went with meatloaf. The hostess suggested a peach pie, so here we are. I decided to use the basic recipe I used […]

Blueberry Pie

I needed a dessert recently when I headed over to a friend’s place for dinner. His wife was making fish tacos, and his 3-year old son declared that out all the pie flavors possible, blueberry sounded best. I couldn’t argue. I used the same crust┬árecipe I’d used for my quiche, and doubled the recipe to […]

Pie Crust

Happy 2013, everyone! May your resolve be strong, and all your dreams be realized this year ­čÖé To me, making pie crust from scratch has always been a daunting task. Sure, I’ve done it, but it’s so much easier to buy it from the store. But for those times when I wanna wrassle with a […]

4th of July Lemonade Pie

I’ll make this quick since I meant to post it in plenty of time for you to make it today before any barbecues! This pie needs 8 hours to set in the freezer (preferably overnight, but I’m sure you could do 6 in a pinch!), so even if you can’t make it today, you can […]

Orange Custard Pie

Making this pie was also a direct result of my excessive orange purchase at the farmer’s market. I made this twice in that same week, because it’s that freaking good. Another thing to note is that aside from oranges, I’d also been on a Chinese Five Spice kick. (It’s reminiscent of apple or pumpkin pie […]

Farmer’s Market Pie

So this pie is just a slight variation on the Orange-Scented Strawberry Pie I made for Easter. As the name indicates, it was inspired by my purchases at a local farmer’s market (the one in Studio City, for you locals). I went with a friend on Sunday a couple of weeks ago, and we picked […]

Orange-scented Strawberry Pie

This really is the most accurate title for this pie, because Strawberry Orange seemed a bit over-exaggerated since I only used a bit of orange zest. The original intention had been to make a Strawberry Rhubarb pie, but I guess rhubarb isn’t in season since I could find it neither fresh nor frozen in 3 […]

Chocolate Puddin’ Pie

I’m really all about not baking lately. You read that correctly. I’m looking for any excuse not to turn on the oven because even the thought of it makes me hot. When I do turn on my oven, to roast veggies or make shrinky dinks, I make sure it’s late at night, at an hour […]

Easy as [Cool Whip] Pie!

Are you going to a barbecue or potluck this summer? Do you live someplace like Los Angeles where it’s too hot to even think about turning on your oven? Well Cool Whip Pie is definitely a recipe to keep on hand – you’ll memorize it after making it once – because it’s summery, light, and […]
