American Flag Slab Pie

The 4th of July is fast approaching, and with it the opportunity to break out the red, white, and blue. I have so much fun getting creative with themed parties for holidays and other celebrations (you should see the themed birthday parties I throw my kids) so every year I try to do something different […]

As I mentioned last year, I get ridiculously excited about Pi day. Perhaps it is because I grew up reading math fiction with my dad (like this book. Kind of like science fiction, but about mathematical concepts). It could also just be that I like fun word plays, or I just like any excuse to […]



Thanksgiving Pie Fries

With Thanksgiving right around the corner it is time to talk about pie. I always make lots of traditional pies for Thanksgiving but sometimes it is fun to play with my food a little bit. I made these fun pie fries last year for the Joy of Kosher website but never got around to posting […]



Banana Cream Pie

Today is March 14th. 3.14. A day known in some circles as Pi(e) day. Every year I see other people posting pies on their blogs in honor of Pi day and I kick myself for not taking that opportunity (can you tell that I am secretly a math nerd?). So this year I decided to […]

The week leading up to Thanksgiving is all about pies. I am seeing all kinds of different interesting pie recipes pop up on pinterest, along with everyone’s tips for fool proof crusts. (In case you were wondering these are my favorite parve ones). I love making pies, and will be making plenty for Thanksgiving, but […]

Now that I’ve started making Thanksgivukkah recipes my mind keeps spinning with fun possibilities. These pumpkin pie filled sufganiot are my latest idea for a dessert to enjoy while celebrating the one in a lifetime confluence of Thanksgiving and Chanukkah. Classic sufganiot are my favorite chanukkah food, and I don’t even really like doughnuts all […]

Everywhere you look it seems there is all kinds of buzz about Thanksgivukkah. What is Thanskgivukkah? It is the once in a lifetime confluence of the holidays of Thanksgiving and the first day of Chanukkah. Due to the intricacies of the calendar this won’t happen again for more than 70,000 years, hence all the buzz […]



A Better Pie Crust

With Thanksgiving next week it is¬†officially¬†pie season. I know that there are those who would argue with me, claiming that the middle of summer when fresh produce overflows the farmers market is the height of pie season. While I do love a great cherry pie at the peak of the season, pies don’t tend to […]



The Best Pecan Pie

I know that pumpkin pie is the traditional dessert for Thanksgiving but to be honest I could take it or leave it. It is pecan pie that is my first choice from the dessert selections, and in my mind Thanksgiving would not be quite as sweet without it. This year I tried to convince my […]

Sour Cherry Pie

Last week I went to the farmers’ market near my house after not having been for several weeks. I didn’t know what I was going to find, and I was thrilled with all the different friuts that had come into season since I last had been there. Apricots, plums, peaches, and berries of all types […]
