Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

Summer is almost gone, and good riddance. I hate bugs, humidity, and having to wear SPF 110. The one thing I will miss is all the great produce. Remind me how much I hate summer when I’m sobbing into a box of tiny, sour strawberries come January, will you? Recently, I got my mitts on…

Strawberry Custard Pie- Estonia

You wanna hear something blasphemous? I only eat pie a few times a year. Whenever I eat it, I love it, but I never have much inclination to love it. If I’m going to eat sugar, it better be gooey, chocolatey, and covered in frosting. I have quite a refined palate, you know. I think…

Pastel de Choclo- Chile

This is somewhat like a Chilean shepherd’s pie! Except that it’s made with beef. And has a crust made out of corn. And has olives. And an egg. Okay, so it’s nothing like shepherd’s pie.

Apple Pie With Vanilla Bean Creme

Shekerbura-Azerbaijan

This is the last recipe in A! One down, twenty five to go. It’s been fun so far! And it’s about to get a lot more fun, cause Shekerbura is delicious. I’ve adapted it a little bit, substituting ground hazelnuts for almond meal, changing the filling, and putting almond meal in unheard of places, but…

Meat Pie- Australia

This was so good. So far, this is my favorite dish. I didn’t have very high hopes for it, I had never made a pie crust before, and I hadn’t liked any of the meat pies I had tried over the years. I resolved to just make it and get it over with. But ohhhh,…
