Perfect Pie

How cute is Marian the Foodie (and her phone)?!? We had a late afternoon meetup at Bricks and Scones


Dinner last night = odds and ends from the fridge


  • 2 Yves Veggie dogs, chopped
  • Crushed garlic/ginger
  • Red cabbage + carrot shreds
  • Brown rice
  • Sprinkle Seasoning Salt
  • Squirt of Bragg Liquid Aminos




…but not bad


Banana Cream Pie from Border Grill, however, was a home run


Abe and I both flipped out over this dessert


Bananas? Perfect. Whipped Cream? Perfect. Crust?


Yes, that was perfect too.


Afterwards, we went to see a friend’s play reading


There was cake at the theater. But I was still pie-whipped so I had none.


Would you rather have cake or pie?

Usually I would choose cake. But last night the pie won.

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs)

    I’m not a huge fan of either… just depends on how “special” the cake/pie is before I’d eat it.

  • Avery

    Pie! I’m definitely more of a pie person, mostly for the buttery crumbly crusts, though I’m a sucker for a good custard based fruit tart.

  • Cindy

    Hmmm? Cake OR pie? Please don’t make me choose. Please! I’m begging you.

  • Anna @ On Anna’s Plate

    Yep, I’m usually cake > pie. But that pie does look pretty amazing! Almost like a bread pudding or something!

  • Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather

    Mmmm totally depends. Probably pie, most cakes are just waaaayyyy too sweet for me and I don’t really like frosting. But homemade chocolate cake… That’s hard to tuen down!

  • Lauren

    Pie all the way! Particularly, that Banana Cream Pie. Oh my!

  • J3nn (Jenn’s Menu and Lifestyle Blog)

    I love Marian’s phone!!! Hello Kitty is my favorite, I just bought a new HK camera case and mouse pad. I so need that cell case. :)

    That pie looks aaaamazing! I’d rather have pie. So much more variety and feels better to eat than cake. Unless it’s wedding-quality cake. Dry cake is YUCKY!

  • Natasha

    Pie all the way..

  • Destiny

    Your last-minute, throw-everything-in-a-bowl stir-frys always look so good!

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      thanks, destiny!

  • runningismagical

    I love cake…but I love pie more!

  • livinglearningeating

    Pie any day! I’m usually not a banana cream fan, but that one looks good :)

  • janetha

    neither.. ice cream :) but if i had to pick, it’d be pie. that dessert looks fantastic.

  • cowsy

    I would always choose cake above pie given an ultimatum. :-) Not that I don’t appreciate pie as well. I’m also a fan of crumbles/crisps/cobblers…

    The banana creme pie looks glorious. I love any type of banana baked good!

  • M.R.

    CAKE- for sure…it has to be a really good looking pie to tempt me. I’m a cake and frosting girl through and through!

  • biz319

    I just can’t do frosting, its just way too sweet for me – so give me a pie any day!

  • Leslie

    I love bricks and scones! And I’d rather have pie in the summer and cake in the winter :)

  • Casey

    oh boy, pie or cake? how could one choose!? Maybe ill make a pie cake πŸ˜‰ anyways id like to let you know I’m tagging you in my post thats coming up in the next day or so. I don’t know if you’ve done the challenge that it is yet or not but check it out and there is not pressure either way for you to do it!!

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      thanks, casey!

  • Erin

    Oh my god. Pie all the way! That banana cream has me salivating. In fact, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving so we can bake up some pumpkin and apple and show the Irish how it’s done. (We are having shepherd’s pie tonight, an altogether different kind of pie.)
