Week of Jan. 8 – Chocolate Megpies

LATE. BUT AT LEAST IT’S GOIN’ UP. Honestly, I just ran out of time for pie last week so I bought something that had “pie” in it’s name. I went to Starbucks for a tea run and I per-chanced upon these Megpies! They’re hand pies! If anything, they look like adult, locally-sourced Pop Tarts, and guess…… Continue reading Week of Jan. 8 – Chocolate Megpies

Week of Dec. 25 -McDonald’s Apple Pie and Double Chocolate Pie

I know, I know, I’m late. Guess what? IDGAF. It’s been busy last week what with the transitioning from one year to the other. This week, I opted to just be quick and easy about it, and bought myself some hand pies from McDonald’s. My local one had Apple and Double Chocolate available. If I…… Continue reading Week of Dec. 25 -McDonald’s Apple Pie and Double Chocolate Pie

My co-worker brought in this Christmas box earlier last week and it was…… Continue reading Week of Dec. 11 – Butter Tarts

Week of Nov. 27 – Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie, homemade

Ever since I saw this Buzzfeed video about Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie, my tastebuds started getting curious about how this pie would taste like. The Walmart up here in Vancouver does not carry this pie nor am I willing to pay for the shipping fees involved in importing this pie to my very doorstep. So the next…… Continue reading Week of Nov. 27 – Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie, homemade

Week of Nov. 20 – Chocolate Chess Pie II

Ever since I saw “Chocolate Chess Pie” on the Gabi & Jules menu last week, I became curious as to exactly what a chess pie is. Research has taught me that chess pie will always be a single crust pie with a custard base.  Still, that doesn’t answer why it’s called a CHESS pie. I thought that maybe if…… Continue reading Week of Nov. 20 – Chocolate Chess Pie II
