Good lord this a good pie. Like insanely must not eat all the filling with a spoon before putting it in the crust good. And crazy text my mother and sister-in-law as I'm licking said spoon to tell them how good it is and that they need to make it for Thanksgiving good. And why on earth didn't I do this ages ago good. I have no idea why this recipe took me so long to piece together. To use the principals of my Key Lime Pie and Lemon Custard and apply them to the cooked-custard Vegan Pumpkin … [Read more...]

Happy Pi Day! That's right, not Pie Day -- that one falls on 23 January each year as declared by The American Pie Council, "the only organisation committed to preserving America's pie heritage ... [to] raise awareness, enjoyment and consumption of pies". But Pi Day -- derived from the date matching the first three digits of Pi, an infinite non-repeating pattern created by the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter aka 3.14159265359andonandonitgoes.

Pumpkin makes me think of autumn, simple as that. Overflowing bins of carving pumpkins just crying out to become jack-o-lanterns. Costumes and candy and festive parties and crazy decorations. The promise of Pumpkin Pie at rapidly approaching holiday dinners. I've said it before and I'll say it again, no matter how long I live in Australia I still associate end of year holidays with cold weather -- and Halloween falls firmly in this category. People in many parts of the world don't … [Read more...]
A celebration. A celebration of life no matter how brief. A celebration of life because the alternative is a contemplation of loss and the extraordinary sadness that accompanies it. Five years ago on this day, a special soul left our family and this earth. She was 19. An artist, a musician, a budding chef, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend. There wasn't a funeral, instead a Memorial Mass and Celebration of Life. We had only just moved back to Sydney weeks earlier but there was no … [Read more...]
Pumpkin Pie does wonders for seasonally induced home-sickness. Don't laugh, it's a valid northern-hemisphere-displaced-persons affliction. It occurs in June -- when it gets cold and you keep hoping the Christmas lights will appear, and then again in November -- when you go to the beach on the weekends and see Christmas lights on the way home. With Thanksgiving only a few days away, it has kicked into high gear. ~~~ We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for a special … [Read more...]
Um, yum, just yum. For as much as I love Cake! I am at least as equally obsessed with Pie! Not the crust bit mind you, in my opinion it really just gets in the way of the business end of pie - the filling. Sweet, savory, creamy, fruity, whatever, I could sit with a pie tin and eat the whole middle bit - one small spoonful at a time. Now I've just shared with you my crusade on pumpkin, so what else to do but get straight to the point on this one. Apple, pumpkin, spices and voila, a spread … [Read more...]
It is officially autumn in America-land. The seasons are changing, Halloween is full steam ahead there are pumpkin recipes everywhere. Sydney on the other hand has not yet woken up to the fact that it should be getting warmer here, and although it is now light until after 7pm [thank you daylight savings] it still feels more like winter than spring. All of these things combined, along with the promise I made to continue the 'brunch we never had' and the fact that shortly the trip recap will … [Read more...]
