♥♥♥♥ILOVEPIESOMUCH♥♥♥♥ PIE!  PIE! PIE!  Lattice talk about pie.  Pie (if you couldn't tell from my word "art") is one of my favorite things to make.  In the culinary world today, so much of the things we do seem more like an art show than delicious food.  Sometimes these 3 Michelin star restaurants will even sell … Continue reading September 26th- pies

"Pour up, bake.  Head shot, bake.  Sit down, bake.  Stand up, bake."  Sometimes I like to imagine Kendrick Lamar is in my baking class rapping this as we put bread in the oven and whip up frosting.  Instead, all I hear is the sound of ovens beeping, dishes being washed, and "Where's this ingredient?",  "Does … Continue reading September 18th- Pastry Cream and Whole Wheat
