This week, I chose a pie to make for a staff barbecue at work. I’ve already baked my way through most of the fruit pies (at least the summery ones), so I decided to try my hand at another chocolate pie that has fruit in it and seemed like it could travel well. Unfortunately, our… Continue reading Week 9: I Wanna Play Doctor with My Gynecologist Chocolate Mousse Pie
Before I left for my west coast trip, I had promised my coworker, Paul, that I would make a pie for his last day with us. Unfortunately for him, his last day was only a few days after I got back to New York and I was feeling way sleepy and zero percent in the… Continue reading Week 8: I Can’t Have an Affair Because It’s Wrong (and I Don’t Want Earl to Kill Me) Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake Pie
After a completely wonderful 5-day trip to Seattle and Portland (major west coast win) and 3 days of oddly rough jet lag, I finally felt human enough to bake again! My a cappella group has been prepping for the first-ever Varsity Vocals International Championship of A Cappella Open Northeast Semifinals (nerd alert) for the past… Continue reading Week 7: Big Guy Strawberry Pie

Who knew!? Anyway, I had grand plans to set aside part of my weekend for this recipe… Continue reading Week 5: Banish the Glum Plum Galettes
I have to say, I’m pretty proud of this week’s pie. After a full week of stretching out my birthday celebrations (I was in bed by midnight day-of… #old), I decided to dedicate my entire Saturday evening to making this guy (again, #old). So, after a spa day with the strangest massage I’ve ever endured… Continue reading Week 4: Life’s Just Peachy-Keen Polka-Dot Peach Pie
As I hinted in my last post, I went a little rogue this week. I jumped toward the end of the cookbook in order to find the perfect pie to make for my niece’s “Pretty in Pink” themed 3rd birthday party. Lulu’s Lemonade Pies seemed quite fitting. Not only are they pink in color, but… Continue reading Week 3: Lulu’s Lemonade Pie(s)
