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).
I posted this recipe for this French Silk Pie on The Instagram last Thanksgiving and realized I never properly posted the recipe here; you know, in real printable, easily-readable form. I like things to live here, too, especially given how Instagram captions can’t be rich-pinned and easily searchable. So here we are.
Also, this pie is perfect for this time of year when it is H-O-T. It’s something that can easily be made ahead AND transportable. Basically, a great formula for a summer dessert.
This past weekend Josh gave me his very cute cold so I’ve been trying to lay up in bed and rest. I got some good rest on Saturday AND also was able to decorate the kitchen for the holiday season. 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.
