Recipe: Salted Caramel Pie

Cooking / Eating In

I had previously mentioned that I made a salted caramel pie for the Pie Party Live potluck, and a few readers asked me to share the recipe – so here you are!  I first saw this recipe in my latest copy of Food & Wine magazine, who in turn was given the recipe from simplethings sandwich & pie shop in LA.  With only 7 ingredients and a minimum of steps, I know this pie had the potential to be easy and delicious.  And I was right!  It was so fun and exciting when a few foodie personalities I “knew” online came up to me during the party to tell me how much they liked the pie.  Would you like to try some salted caramel pie for your own? You won’t regret it!

Recipe: Honey Cornbread

Recipe: Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake

Cooking / Eating In

Note:  If you follow me on twitter, you’ll know that this cheesecake met its untimely demise when it hit the pavement on my way to work yesterday morning.  It was so sad, and (I admit) tragically funny.  What makes it worse is that I had made a mini one for myself so I know how good it tastes.  There’s more to the story – perhaps one day when I’m over the sting of wasted dessert, I’ll share. But there sure were some disappointed people at work yesterday.

I’m just going to come out and admit it – I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin pie.   I know, crazy right?  I think it’s psychological – the whole it’s a vegetable (I know, it’s technically a fruit, but come on) but it’s sweet, etc. etc.  But if you throw cheesecake into the mix, well now – that’s a different story.  And if you put praline topping on top of the whole shebang – ok, NOW we’re talking.  My second Thanksgiving recipe post for pumpkin praline cheesecake is a little more time intensive, but its actual steps are quite simple. Let’s get started, shall we?
