Happy 3.14 Day!

In celebration of all things Pi and Pie, let us take this moment to reflect on pie in all of it’s greatness. Pie can be sweet or savory. Pie can be breakfast, lunch or dinner. Pie can be a casual bite on the go, a simple weeknight meal or the final course at...

Pie Day 2012

I really love pie. Delicious and comforting, pie can be sweet or savory. Pie makes me think about Holidays and family, Summer and BBQ all at the same time. Pie works for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. It may, in fact, be the perfect food. So, in honor of Pie Day...

This recipe started with me in the waiting room of my daughters’ dentist reading Family Circle.  My eyes happened upon a recipe for Chocolate Hazelnut Pie submitted by Brenda Melancon of Gonzales, Louisiana.  Nutella?  Oreo Crust?  Yes please.  I took a photo of...
