In preparation of pi(e) day (March 14….3.14 in case you haven’t heard of it!), I thought I’d do a little round-up of all the pies I’ve made here on the blog! Pie is one of my favourite desserts to make, and is so much simpler than people think.Read More
Hello friends! If you’ve been following me over on instagram, then you may have seen this chocolate pie pop up in a tutorial I did with my friend Kristie from The Sweet and Simple Kitchen. We shared a number of “halfway homemade” recipes that are great when you’re entertaining, hosting for the holidays, or just need to whip up something asap.Read More
Let’s first acknowledge the fact that it is no longer italian plum season. I know this, okay? I made this pie a couple months ago, and it got lost in the chaotic-ness that is my life during the Fall harvest season on our farm. But guess what? If you have frozen plums (kudos to you for thinking ahead!), they work perfectly! And you could also swap in red plums, which I’ve been seeing all over the grocery store in the past couple of weeks. Yay! Pluots would work well with this recipe as well. So many options!Read More
Say hello to your new favourite Summer pie! Peaches and blackberries are a match made in heaven. Sweet peaches are made even better by the pop of flavour that tart blackberries bring (I'm a huge fan of tart things!), and be sure to add a scoop of ice cream on top to really take this pie to the next level.
Now, social media is sometimes the worst....but sometimes it's the absolute best. I had followed Kristie from The Sweet and Simple Kitchen on instagram for a while now, and a couple weeks ago she messaged me asking to have a baking date! It was reminiscent of my very first insta-friend meet-up with my now good friend Amy, minus the sleepover that Amy and I had. Ha!Read More
Hello! Today we have such a wonderful (and maybe unusual?) Summer pie to talk about. If you're unfamiliar with saskatoons, they're kind of like a smaller blueberry, with almost a nutty taste. Hard to describe! But they make amazing pies, even if they are a pain in the butt to pick! Ha! They tend to ripen individually, versus blueberries which often ripen in clusters. Soooo.....when you're picking them for money, the saskatoons are much harder! I was always a terrible berry picker when my family had more berries (we used to grow a ton of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries), and I didn't even bother to attempt to make money picking saskatoons. Hahaha.Read More
