piles of pie

It’s Thanksgiving week. I could not be more excited! I am also a little bit nervous because I am cooking Thanksgiving dinner all on my own this year. This morning, I got all of my groceries and I had to call my mom multiple times to ask questions like, “Will this feed all of us?” “Where is corn syrup?” and “I can do this right???”

In our house, pie is the star of Thanksgiving. Hubs LOVES pie. He has been picking out the pie I will make for weeks. Y’all, I’m not kidding. He has stalked Pinterest, Food Network, and so many other websites looking for the perfect pie. Fruit, chocolate, pecan, pumpkin, he doesn’t care. If it has a flaky crust and a sweet filling, he loves it. This year, I am definitely looking forward to the pie. We moved into a new house last week, we both start new jobs this week, and I am working on launching a business. As you can guess, my stress levels have been a little high so I am looking forward to calming myself down with a few slices of sugary goodness.

To celebrate Thanksgiving and it’s special dessert, here are some of my favorite pie recipes. Enjoy!

Are you drooling? Hub’s ultimately landed on the Chocolate Espresso Pecan Pie so that is what I will be making this week. Let us know your favorite pie recipes and what you will be cooking in your kitchen!

Hope your day is filled with thankfulness and all things merry!


Thursday Trend: Let Them Eat Pie!

Hi friends! Fall is oh-so-close! I am literally counting the days until it cools down and I can snuggle up with apple cider and leggings. My heart can hardly handle the anticipation. With the new season comes new fruit, and with that comes my new trend! I have seen it in quite a few weddings recently, and the trend is fantastic no matter if it’s summer or winter. Today’s trend: pies at weddings! I absolutely love how having pies allows for tons of different flavor options, but you can still have your cake and eat it too! Pie tables add a sense of whimsical personality to the traditional wedding dessert table. Mark them with flags, make custom place cards, or adorn them with bride and groom toppers. Pumpkin and apple and pecan, OH MY! Enjoy these scrumptious looking pies, I’m about to go pretend to be Julia Child and try to make one of these delicious desserts.


Hope this inspired you to whip up some rustic, fall filled pies for your big day! Love and sunshine!
