Apple Butterscotch Pandowdy

Fall, Pie, Quick and Easy, Thanksgiving

Hii from Thanksgiving land. Are you guys ready for the big day?

I imagine you’re sort of putting together your meal plan together.

So every year (including this one), I push pie recipes onto you all. A lot you email me, tag me in your pie photos and I absolutely love them all. I know that some of you all don’t love assembling pies. There’s the rolling the crust out, the latticing, the decorating. It’s kind of a lot. I get it. It can get kinda frustrating if you’ve never done it before.

Well, this recipe is for all of you who want to skip doing all that but still want a pretty pie! A pandowdy is not something I invented, it’s an old school American dessert that originates in Pennsylvania.

I honestly had never heard of it until Josh told me about it. He said that his mom made them all the time. I guess it makes sense I’d never heard of it; my family isn’t from the United States so this isn’t something my grandmother or great grandmother would have ever made.

Late-Summer Peach Galette with Baklava-like Filling

Desserts, Pie, Summer

Are you guys chilling this weekend? After a little bit of a crazy few weeks, I was lucky enough to be able to relax most of the weekend. I slept, I tried to stay cool (it was literally 105F every single day, help us all!), tried to stay away from the crazy fires, washed clothes and went to a bbq for a friends birthday. It was all good.

This weekend I’m headed to Seattle for Create + Cultivate and I just learned that Issa Rae is the keynote speaking and it has me a little scared/shy/excited to meet her!! EEEE! I love her so much. I’m actually leaving before she hits the stage so who knows if I get to meet her BUT if you haven’t watched Insecure DOOO ITTT!

It is my favorite show on TV right now; it has be DYING every single episode. And every time an episode is done I’m like UGGGHHH I wish there was more!

Let’s turn our attention to this late-summer galette because it is SO good. At the base of the galette, underneath the peaches is a baklava-type of mixture and it is B O M B. It’s spiced and crunchy and flavorful. It gives the entire thing such a good flavor and texture.

Rhubarb Strawberry Pink Peppercorn Pie

Desserts, Pie, Spring

Do you wanna know what today is?

It’s 3.14 AKA gorgeous, beautiful PI DAY!

This is honestly one of my favorite food days. I know it gets sort of exhausting with the whole “national peanut butter sandwich day” or “strawberry shortcake with basil pesto day,” etc., etc.. But Pi Day is 100% LEGIT.

I’ve always wanted to put pink peppercorns in a pie; I’m so glad I finally did it.

Since the rainy season hit LA and California really hard this year, we have been blessed with beautiful rhubarb. Crisp, beautiful, bright pink rhubarb. I’m so into it.

I have a batch leftover that I need to use up today or tomorrow so let me know if you have any delicious rhubarb ideas! I’ll make ‘em!

I really want to make sandwich scones. Because Cindy made a version a month ago or so and I can’t stop thinking about them. Like roasted rhubarb in a scone. SHIIIITE that’d be good.
