Bye Bye American Election Pie

IMAG0677

Election night is exciting for me like the way the SuperBowl is exciting for others. The BFF is really into politics (“junkie” doesn’t begin to come close to explaining his fervor) so watching election coverage is made all the more enthralling when a 34-year-old man is jumping up and down, skipping in and out of […]

Time For A (Veggie) Tart

204

Tart was not my nickname in high school…I don’t think. Tarts have an open top and can be sweet or savory. Make of that what you will. Jokes! Terrible ones! Years ago there was a restaurant in Denver called A La Tomate that made delicious pizza-type tarts, savory but with a buttery pastry dough crust. […]

Attack Of The Alien Grapes (Run For Your Lives, It’s Pie!)

The gooseberry looks like an alien grape and tastes like a sour one. Not that I’m complaining or trash-talking it. Just sayin’, plus it’s fun to say alien grape.

Fried chicken, hell yes. Now, try it with pie crust. Irish boxty, yum. Pie of pretty much any flavor under the […]

Sick of Turkey? Pot-Pie It.

Ugh, I am so full. But there is still a LOT of food in the refrigerator and there comes a time when one simply cannot bear the thought of eating the same (albeit delicious) meal again. And that is the time when I remember the adage they taught us in elementary school, “Recycle-Reuse-Reduce.” Mashed potatoes […]

Holly Jolly Southern Holiday

I trust not everyone is recovered from this years holidays. And if you are, it’s just in time for New Years so we can start the recovery process all over again! I come from a long line of Georgia women. And nothing says “Georgia at Christmas” like pecan pie. The recipe below is inspired by […]

Stew + Pie Crust = Pot Pie?

I love pie crusts, as you may have noticed. And I welcome any excuse to put dinner inside of one. So I decided I would make a cioppino-inspired stew but with less fish and baked inside a pie crust. So it was to be a seafood pot pie of sorts…
