While we wait for spring to truly arrive, I’ll just be here eating this pie.
I wrote this morning’s blog post from my hotel room in Los Angeles. Annnd just a few hours later, I’m back in Portland and ready to eat this delicious apple tart. It’s the last of the produce we have from the Montavilla Farmers Market, which I volunteer on the board for. It makes me sad […]
Well, this is terrifying! I made a video. I have to be honest, I’ve been sitting on this one for a while. It makes me really nervous to share it! I put a lot of thought and work into this, and it wasn’t easy. I’m thankful that I have a very supportive husband who was […]
Happy Pi Day! I have been waiting for this day, because I always need more excuses for more pie. Which reminds me. How about some curried chicken pot pie? I’m so pleased with how this turned out. Dave made the filling, and I was able to use some of my homemade puff pastry for the […]

After several different concepts and practice pies, Dave decided to make a spumoni pie for the annual contest at his work. And it is delicious. Check it out. Chocolate crust, and hidden under that delectable, homemade cherry pie filling? A layer of pistachios, sweet and gooey.
This past week, I decided to make a from-scratch banana cream pie. This post is a long time coming. Not because anything went badly, per se, but because it takes a REALLY long time to make a custard pie from scratch. Especially if you are new at it. Especially if you are alone but trying […]
