Key Lime Pie

 

As with many things, I am quite spur of the moment.. meaning.. I just see something in the store or on TV or whatever and just suddenly think “I HAVE TO MAKE THAT!”

And so it was with the key lime pie… walking through Sobey’s the other day and there they were… KEY LIMES! I don’t remember the last time I saw them in a grocery store here! Very unusual! Continue reading

We were at the Farmer’s Market on the weekend and found some lovely fresh rhubarb…. so of course pie must be made!

My mother is a pie expert.  I’ve probably told you this before, but she made pie a LOT … seemed like every day.. after all, Dad needed his breakfast pie.. not to mention lunch and dinner pie… but then he got the high cholesterol and all that pie eating came to an end.  Good thing as I think my mother was getting awfully tired ….but I digress.

Blueberry Pie

Well hello there Blueberry pie….

We bought a lot of blueberries, so I made some pie….

Coconut Cream Pie - Beth the BakerHappy PI Day!

Okay, so this is late.  And I’m a nerd.  Pi Day is supposed to be to celebrate the mathematical constant Pi or π.  However, it IS a pretty good excuse to just have pie.  And I WAS in Math Club, so it’s all good.  Although at Math competitions we just got donuts.  No pie.  The heathens!

We celebrated Pi Day with some pretty delicious Coconut Cream Pie.  Enjoy! Continue reading

Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream PieSo the beautiful and talented Katy Warren is not a big cake fan.  She likes pie.  LOVES pie.  For her birthday, I wasn’t sure what kind of pie to make… so I made two.  Also, I use the word “so” a lot.

I wasn’t sure what kind to make.. her favourite is Raspberry Pie, but felt it was the wrong time of year to make it (her birthday is in February) hence I made two pies.  Here’s number one…. Continue reading
