Mini Beef & Guinness Pies

Mini Beef & Guiness Pot Pie

When Danielle and I went to London, we ate the most delicious savoury pot pies on our first pub night there and I’ve been waning to make my own at home ever since. I finally did it last week, due to the combined forces of Pi Day (3.14….get it???) and St. Patrick’s Day. My go-to […]

Salty Honey Pie

Salty Honey Pie

I’ve seen this recipe for Salty Honey Pie on so many blogs over the past few years, and have always been intrigued by it. It sounded kind of weird, but kind of like Crack Pie, but also maybe like a butter tart with honey instead of corn syrup. When Kristine and I went to Cake […]

Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake Pie

Strawberry Slice

While I may not have figured out my signature summer cocktail just yet, here’s my Summer Sixteen signature dessert. I made this two weeks in a row, and considering I hardly every make the same thing twice, it automatically qualifies. This is what’s happening in this four layer party in a pie plate: Graham cracker […]

Blueberry Custard Pie

I’ve been operating on a two-month delay over here when it comes to summer fruit, but luckily just caught the end of blueberry season a couple of weeks ago. I made that amazing Blueberry Buckle, but was dreaming of this Blueberry Custard Pie; a mash-up of the Blueberry Pie I made two summers ago, and […]

Rhubarb Cream Cheese Hand Pies

Sometimes I have a moment when I see a new recipe and I’m like omgineedtomakethisrightaway and I can’t stop thinking about it. This becomes a problem when dealing with seasonal fruit, and rhubarb in particular, because if you don’t drop everything and make it right away, you’ll have to wait like a year for your […]

Strawberry Jell-O Pie

I’m super excited to share this quick and easy recipe today! *insert sound of record scratching here* APRIL FOOL’S! I can’t even keep up this charade as a joke. Let me take a minute to explain. On my 5th blog-iversary, a mean internet troll my brother left me a comment that said: “Meh. The continuing lack […]

Peanut Butter Pie

The second dessert I made for my Blog-iversary party is another one I’ve wanted to make for years, and has a bit of a back story behind it. In 2011, food writer and blogger Jennie Perillo lost her husband suddenly. In response to the outpouring of support and people asking what they could do to […]

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream + Bourbon Peach Pie

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream

Well, I thought we’d go out with a bang before it’s all Apples, Pumpkins and Pears* around here!  Since I started a new job right in the middle of the summer, it kind of upset my flow in the kitchen, and feel like I didn’t get to make as many pies, crumbles, popsicles and ice […]

Rhubarb Custard Pie

I’ve been waiting a whole year to make this pie! This is what happens when your baking BFF lives on the West coast and her rhubarb season comes AFTER yours. By the time Danielle made this last summer and raved about it to me, rhubarb season was finished in Ontario, so onto my Pinterest board […]

Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Pie with Cheddar Pastry {Gastropost Mission #78}

November 23, 2013 Dinner
Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Pie

Mushroom BOOM! That was our challenge for this week, and I knew right away what I wanted to make. Smitten Kitchen’s Mushroom Bourguignon, which is both on her site and in her cookbook. It was warm, cozy, and filling, but just not really a looker. Since I had the day off on Remembrance Day, I […]
