Parve Pumpkin Pie
November 22, 2011 | 1 Comments

I can live without a turkey on Thanksgiving but I can't live without a pumpkin pie. It's another one of those "personal pan" items. I need my own pie for dessert and breakfast the next day...mid-morning snack, too. I'm not baking for the community at large this Thanksgivin... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Parve Chocolate Pecan Pie
November 23, 2011 | 6 Comments

For pecan pie lovers, the good news is that this is so easy to make. I'm not a fan of pecan pie but repeated orders tell me this must taste good. I tried a different technique last night; pre-baking the crust. I don't think that is necessary and causes the pie to brown too quickly. So, back ... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Perfect Pie Dough
February 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

September 9, 2011 | 0 Comments

Rosh Hashana and weeks of holidays are fast approaching. I'm crazy busy with catering and want to get more recipes uploaded. Solution at this point: put foods for the holiday onto my catering event menus. 'Tis the season so it should be fine. Tonight's board meeting dinner finished ...

Old-Fashioned Apple Pie
February 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

Apple pie is very simple to make; especially when using the pie crust recipe from Baking with Julia. Growing up, pie was always challenging...will the crust turn out? Will it be too dry and crack, or too tough? I discovered this particular recipe when the book came out in 1996 and have nev... (Continue to recipe and instructions)
