French Silk Pie

Desserts, Pie, Quick and Easy, Summer, Winter

August is (as they like to say) the dog days of summer. Thick, slow and steamy. It’s usually when we’re all starting to think/hope warm temperatures are going to come to an end soon but in places like Los Angeles, they’re just getting started (unfortunately).

Desserts, Pie, Winter

I can’t wait to show little glimpses of the kitchen because it’s almost all done and ready. I probably won’t be able to do that until January because we’re still waiting on a few pieces to arrive to get it up and fully running. I’m grateful that I can now make tea and dinner (on the stove-top only)—it feels so nice!

I baked this cranberry apple pie at my apartment and it was inspired by a cable knit sweater. Billy was like, the top should really feel like a sweater. And I couldn’t agree more but I didn’t really know how to do that. We settled on strips of braids and simple strips going only in one direction.
