Tuesdays With Dorie – All-American, All-Delicious Apple Pie

Posted in food on October 26, 2010 by hoagiefest 2020

As seems to be the trend, my crust is slightly burnt around the edges and my pie is ugly as sin. BUT, take a look at those gooey insides.

All in all, a mild success. That’s just how I like them.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Caramel Pumpkin Pie

OH MY LORD IS THIS GOOD. I feel like I’ll probably have to go to the gym an extra seven times this week as a result of eating this thing, but I don’t see that as a problem. DO YOU?

Surprise! My crust look awful. Well, third time this month may be a charm, and I’ll be making apple pie next week with the Dorie bakers, so wish me luck.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Folded Over Pear Torte

Is that what this is called? It’s too late and I’m too lazy to look it up. Here is a picture of my photogenic torte.

Didn't John Grisham write a book about tortes?  I bet his was not full of custard.

If I had to describe the flavor in one word, it would be “pie-ish.” If I were allowed to use two words I’d stop caring about writing this blog post.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Double Apple Bundt Cake

Posted in food on October 5, 2010 by hoagiefest 2020


That’s more like it. I was pretty vocal about the lameness of last week’s tarte (pronounced tar-TAY). This cake looks and tastes exactly like a double-apple cake should taste, and you know you had a taste in mind the moment you read Double Apple Cake.

Over the last week, I wore an apron and baked CRAZY PIZZA BREAD (take 2, this time w/ caramelized onions, green bell peppers, and pepperoni) by candlelight because apparently rainstorm makes the electricity go away.

Speaking of go away, scram.
