Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie FEAT

Guess what kids.  It’s time for some Pie in July with my friend Carrie from Frugal Foodie Mama.  Why? Because pie in the summer is a GREAT idea, and because Carrie and I just can’t stay away from each other.    She’s kind of one of my blog girl crushes – just in case you didn’t know Carrie.  And in case you haven’t heard, Carrie is going to be contributing

Pumpkin Pie & Peach Pie


My friend Jamie doesn’t bake.  She’s a great cook, but not a baker.  This year she got volun-told to make pie for Thanksgiving at her parents.  I offered to help her with the pies and it got interesting.  Jaime just wanted pie to take over, she wasn’t worried about everything being made from scratch.  She bought Pillsbury Pie Crusts and made the fillings.  Semi-Homemade, right Sandra Lee?  Let me preface

Banoffee Pie


Do you like Duff Goldman?  I’ve been a fan of Ace of Cakes for years.  The bakery put out the most awesome cakes.  Which is great and all, but they also have so much fun, and they’re quirky and the kind of creative people that make the world a better place.  I even got my little sister addicted to the show too.  When Ace of Cakes had its last episode I was

Frito Pie

Frito Pie FEAT

I miss playing music.  It’s almost impossible to play my viola with the kids awake (they want to touch and see and yell at me if I say no) and I can’t play when they are asleep…what if they wake up?  We can’t have that.  *sigh*  Someday soon I’ll get my chops back.   In high school I was in orchestra, a fiddle performance group, marching band, and concert band.

Rob’s Perfect Pie Crust & Pie Printable

Perfect Pie Crust 3

Hi everyone!  I totally planned on making Tart Tatin today to fulfill my Operation 2013 goals.  But that’s just not going to happen.  Puff Pastry and I aren’t friends right now.  So instead I’m going to teach you all how to make my step-dad’s perfect pie crust.  It’s the best.  Every time I make it for a pie it comes out perfectly. My step-dad Rob is an avid cook and

Caramel Nut Pie

Caramel Nut Pie | {i love} my disorganized life for White Lights on Wednesday

Rich caramel, flaky pie crust and fresh whipped cream come together to make this delightful Caramel Nut Pie! This adorable little pie is quite deceiving in looks. It’s actually very rich & creamy and extremely addicting. I have made caramel before, but this, this caramel was by far the best. Let me warn you, it did take some time to make, but it is certainly well worth the wait. In

French Silk Pie

French Silk Pie FEAT

One slice of this decedent French Silk Pie and you’ll be hooked! I love chocolate.  Just plain old chocolate makes me really happy.  One of my all time favorite pies (besides Coconut Cream) is French Silk.  It’s creamy, dreamy, and oh so chocolaty!  I can’t believe I’d never made my own French Silk Pie before.  I usually buy the Marie Callendar ones from the freezer section at the store.  Not all

Kauai Pie Ice Cream


If you have ever been to Hawaii then you may have heard of Lappert’s Ice Cream.  They are famous on the islands and visitors flock to their shops.  I was recently there with my husband and we went to Lappert’s three time in one week!  One of their specialty flavors that they always have in the ice cream case is their Kauai Pie ice cream.  It is Kona coffee ice

Boston Cream Pie

Boston Cream Pie

Yesterday was near perfect.  I got some new kitchen goods, bar stools, and a table from my mom’s old house.  I had a great lunch date with my favorite men.  I took a really long nap.  Cleaned out my spice cabinet.  Got Mike’s help to scrub the kitchen and do dishes.  I made a really yummy dinner.  I tickled the bajeezus out of my kids.  Mike and I watched Louis

Dark Chocolate Black-Bottom Pie

Dark Chocolate Black-Bottom Pie 1

Happy Pi Day!   Did you know the mathematical constant Pi had it’s own holiday?  It does.  Fun facts about Pi: Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. Cool, huh?     The first Pi Day was organized by Larry Shaw in San Fransisco.  Today is also Albert Einstein’s birthday.

Lemon Raspberry Mousse Pie in a Jar

No Bake Lemon Raspberry Mousse Pies in a Jar 3

What’s your favorite part of summer? Is it spending all day at the pool?  Barbecuing with your friends?  Eating grilled food and no bake desserts? We have A LOT of summer birthdays, especially in July.  They’re fun, and I love seeing my family.  But the food is my favorite part.  We do almost all our get togethers {holidays, birthdays, etc.} potluck style.  I’m usually the one bringing a side dish,

Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Pie


One of Thing 1’s favorite snacks is peanut butter on graham crackers.  It’s one of my favorite snacks too. The other day I was wracking my brain trying to think of something new to make for a dessert post and then it hit me…peanut butter and graham crackers.  You can’t go wrong with that!  This is seriously one of the best ideas I’ve had for a pie.  I pieced together

Caramel-Apple Pie Triangle Treats


Oh my gosh y’all!  I am so HAPPY that the Crazy Cooking Challenge is BACK!!     I had no idea I had joined 9 months into a 12 month project.  I was terribly sad to find out the Cheesecake round (which I missed getting a recipe up for, boo) was month 12.  A dark cloud hung over my kitchen.  Then last month, Tina sent out an email – CCC was coming

Spiked Pumpkin Pie Milkshake 2

Can you believe Halloween is in two short days?  I’m so excited.  Eddie is big enough to walk around and carry his own pumpkin and Otto is hyping on his costume.  We’re actually all dressing up together for a group costume.  I see a trend beginning. What’s our costume going to be? Leave your guess in the comments.   The first correct guess gets 200×200 ad space for a month.

Irish Capookie

Irish Capookie FEAT

Happy Pi Day everyone!  Or pie day for all you non-math nerds.    Today is officially the 1 year mark to my wedding.  It’s weird to finally be all like, “it’s one year away.”  Until now I’ve been ahead of the game and all the wedding timelines, and now I’m in them for real.  To put my mind at ease, I made pie.  And not just any pie.  The craziest
