Hi guys! I hope all of you had the loveliest of weekends. This time of year is calling me into the kitchen. I can’t help but be drawn to my oven (or freezer in this case) and play with new recipes. Most of which have been turning out quite well. Except for those Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Bars I made last week. They basically looked like coal in the shape of tiny bricks and the taste was less than desirable. A single bite is all it took to knowing that something went terribly wrong. And don’t even get me started on the texture. No, just no. One of these days I’ll hopefully be able to redeem them, but for now I’d like to forget about my big baking disaster.

So I turned to my freezer instead. I was looking for redemption. Sweet, sweet redemption. Though in serious doubt that my second healthier recipe of the day featuring some unusual ingredients would give me what I was looking for, I decided to give it a whirl anyway.

Little did I know what a pleasant surprise I was preparing. The proof is in the pie. Determination is quite delicious. [Read more…]

The Easiest French Silk Pie of Life (Dairy-Free)

Today is the day, you guys. Not only are my hubby and I the same age once again, but it’s also the day on which his French Silk Pie dreams are coming true. It also happens to be my first actual pie post here on the blog. And for good reason. Pie-baking only happens once a year in our kitchen and that is the day on which my hubby turns a year older.

It’s my least favorite thing to bake, but I gladly make an exception for my pie-loving man. So when I say this is the easiest pie of life, you better believe that I am not kidding around.

Especially if you’ve never made a pie before; I can’t think of a pie that’s simpler and more suitable for a beginner than this one. There’s no baking involved here and you only need a couple of minutes to throw this together. This might be the easiest and tastiest recipe I’ve ever created.

Here’s how you can get your pie fix on. [Read more…]

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Pie

Cinnamon Rolls in the form of Pie studded with Crisp Apples, Caramel Bits and drizzled with Two Luscious Glazes!

I am giving in to fall baking. It’s happening and I couldn’t be more excited about it, especially if that means we get to eat things like what I am sharing with you today. My caramel-apple-cinnamon-roll-pie dreams are coming true. Finally. I have been thinking about some kind of a caramel apple cinnamon roll concoction forever now, which means probably 2-3 weeks for me, ha.

Seriously, thinking about the perfect way to pair those three completely occupied my mind. Once I had the idea, I tried to hold out on executing simply because I refused to get an early start on all things fall. You know how anticipation makes things almost always better, like so much better?! Well, I think that might have happened with this pie.

I doubt that it could taste anything but delicious, but after taking my first bite of this, I almost fell into a foodie coma. I am pretty sure my taste buds had no idea what was happening…. but they couldn’t get enough of this breakfast/dessert mash up. [Read more…]

I am finally making my pie debut with a recipe that is so easy to pull off, you won’t be able to stop making them. I mean, who wouldn’t be able to spare 10 minutes in order to enjoy a freshly baked Hand Pie?

All day long is what I’m thinking :).

You could definitely fill them with anything you prefer, but I have always had a thing for cherries. I have great memories of my grandparents and me driving to a cherry farm and picking them fresh from the trees. Afterwards, we’d always sit on their balcony and enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Before summer is coming to a close, I knew I wanted to create something that would bring back those fond memories of my childhood. Bite by bite, these amazing little pies are doing just that! [Read more…]
