Pineapple Mule

In the spirit of channeling the tropical weather with this Caramelized Pineapple Cream Pie, I put the leftover pineapple to good use.

Caramelized Pineapple Cream Pie

It did not remotely feel like summer in Chicago this weekend. I woke up to a forecast of 44 and cloudy. We can only hope summer will make an appearance by August.

Southwest Chicken Pot Pie

It’s been gloomy and rainy all weekend in Chicago. The kind of weather that makes me want to do absolutely nothing. Do you think Spring will ever make an appearance? Saw this yesterday and it’s almost too accurate… Thanks for nothing, Spring. Since I’m pretty sure we’ll never get out of winter, we might as […]

Nutella Pie | via Pies Before Guys

Hap-pie pi day, friends! Hope your day has been filled with lots of pie (sweet, savory, pizza…whatever floats your boat). No shame: I had pizza for lunch and dinner, plus pie for dessert. In honor of Pi Day I have a new *delicious* recipe. But first…there’s some Nutella controversy out there, so let me start […]

St. Patrick’s Day Mint Pie

As a kid I looked forward to St. Patrick’s Day solely for the McDonald’s mint shamrock shakes.

Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Breakfast Pie

During my three years in NYC, my favorite breakfast by far was bacon, egg, and cheese on an everything bagel. It didn’t matter if it was from a neighborhood bodega or a fancy bagel shop—there’s just no match to the cheesy, salty goodness. It’s everything you want when you’re so hungover you want to die […]

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie

Just because Valentine’s Day is over, doesn’t mean I’m going to stop eating chocolate. If anything, I’m going to go to the store and get more right now. It’s on sale. You can’t say no to a good sale. Last week I bought sandals solely because I had a coupon. It’s 30 degrees outside. I […]

Tart Cherry Pie

I like to optimistically think of February as the end of winter…but this morning I had to dig my car out of a foot of snow. So basically winter is never leaving. At least February brings a few fun holidays to help us forget about the dreadful weather (aka Mardi Gras & Valentine’s Day). Nothing […]
