Lemon Ice Box Pie

  The impending warm weather always gets me excited about pie season. I especially love cold pies during the warm summer months, like this lemon ice box pie. It is super easy to make, and lasts for a long time in the freezer. Whenever you are craving a slice, all you have to do is open your freezer and a delicious pie is already waiting for you! This lemon ice box pie is made with fresh lemon juice and zest, which […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Every time I make this pumpkin pie, nobody knows tofu is the secret ingredient until I say it. People are always surprised by the tofu, but it actually makes a mean pumpkin pie! Instead of adding evaporated milk or cream, I use tofu to make this pumpkin pie vegan. The tofu and pumpkin blend together nicely with the spices to give you a creamy pumpkin pie filling. And it becomes totally soft, creamy and delicious after baking it in the oven! It […]

Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut butter pie is one of my top favorite desserts, ever. It’s so quick and easy to make, too! Oreo cookie crumbs make a chocolate-y crust, which is filled with a creamy, lightly sweetened peanut butter filling. The pie is frozen until ready to serve and then topped with crunchy chopped peanuts, drizzled with chocolate syrup and decorated with whipped cream. Make sure you remember to set it out about 30 minutes before you are ready to serve it to allow […]

Banana Pie Smoothie

This banana pie smoothie tastes just like a banana cream pie in a glass! My favorite thing about it is the graham cracker crust topping. Freeze the bananas ahead of time (already peeled and chopped in half). I like this smoothie really cold, so I also like to add some ice, too. You can make this smoothie for breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or as a healthy dessert alternative! Banana Pie Smoothie Ingredients 1 banana, frozen ½ cup plain, non-fat […]

Apple Pie Smoothie

Fall is just around the corner and what better way to welcome this lovely season into our lives that with a fall classic: Apple Pie. Delicious, warm, it really is the best. But baking can be time consuming and difficult, especially if you don’t have all the ingredients you need, all the utensils, or the time it takes to sit around and wait for it to bake. Chances are though, that you have a few common smoothie ingredients, some apples, and […]

Blueberry Handpies

Because who needs plates anyway? These are great when you have guests over and you don’t want to deal with cleaning forks AND plates. Bake these and then everyone can have their own slice of pie without the mess. These also make great breakfast pastries with your morning coffee. Pies aren’t just for dessert anymore. I found this recipe, beautifully photographed and styled on Camille Styles. Oh, to have a whole legion of contributors, photographers, and bloggers at your disposal. One […]

Baked in a Buttery, Flaky Crust

Try saying that 3 times fast. No, seriously. It’s a bit of a tongue-twister, and no one knows it better than these two regulars at Dysart’s Restaurant in Maine. Baked in a buttery, flaky crust…

Vegan Chocolate Pudding Pie [In a Jar]

Finally! The ultimate! The one! The only! The fabulous vegan dessert you’ve all been waiting for! I know you’re so ready to impress all your friends… and enemies… and roommates… and stuff. So here it goes, I’ll just get straight to the point on this one, since you’ve all been waiting so patiently! Vegan Chocolate Pudding Pies Wait, I have to preface this: oreos are technically vegan. In the U.S. at least [apparently in other countries, they have whey in […]

Key Lime Pie

Hi! While I was in San Francisco visiting my parents, I made the most heavenly key lime pie with graham cracker crust. I used my Magic Bullet for both the crust and the filling. The Bullet crumbled the graham crackers, blended together all the key lime ingredients and basically made my life much easier. This wondrous pie was quite possibly my proudest Magic Bullet creation. I was so pleased with the results that I kept asking my mom to take […]
