I made this pie at the tail-end of last week’s marathon. I was a bit pi-ed out, but excited to attempt my first ice cream creation! My cousin, Julie, just got engaged and was in town from LA for a wedding. Her sister threw her and her fiancé an impromptu engagement party at her new… Continue reading Week 12: Getting Out of the Mud Frozen Mud Pie
Despite knowing that this week would be a complete s***-storm, I thought it would be a great idea to commit to making not one, but TWO pies (technically three) to bring to work on Friday and yet another for a meeting this morning. We had our third-largest fundraiser at work on Thursday, so instead of… Continue reading Week 11: It’s a Pie Marathon! Parathon? Marapie?
I admittedly took a brief hiatus due to illness and travel, but I’m back in action! I figured nobody wanted to eat pie made by a girl who is constantly blowing her nose. Instead, I decided to make a pie for when my best friends, Betsy and Alex, came into town from Florida. Betsy is… Continue reading Week 10: In the Dark Dark Triple Chocolate Truffle Pie

Unfortunately, our… Continue reading Week 9: I Wanna Play Doctor with My Gynecologist Chocolate Mousse Pie

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
Well, folks, as promised, I have an extra-special post for you this week. Since there are a few recipes in the cookbook that require immediate consumption, I decided to invite over 7 of my friends (who all live within walking distance from my apartment…proximity helps) to feast on four pies and copious amounts of wine.… Continue reading Week 6: It’s a PIE PARTY!
