The Pie Hole

bakeries/cafes/dessert places - dessert - lunch

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Pie Hole post – definitely one of my favorite places in LA.

Apparently, the coffee is great…

…but the pie is where it’s at!

Full disclosure – I did not eat a single bite of any of these (I had just hoovered a giant raisin bran muffin and wanted to be hungry for a big dinner in 4 hours.)  But I know the food is great, so I couldn’t stop taking photos for you!  Here’s some quiche…

….chicken pot pie…

…but she pretty much singlehandedly took down the Mexican Chocolate.

Everyone left very happy.

A Huckleberry Thanksgiving

dessert - holidays

Since Abe and I will be volunteering most of Thanksgiving Day, I wanted to explore take-away options for a mellow little picnic.  Huckleberry seemed like a good place to start.

Along with a full Thanksgiving dinner menu which includes traditional favorites like Turkey, Sweet Potatoes, and Stuffing, they have their famous baked goods – available in store now if you want to sample them before the 27th.

…I didn’t have either, but I did sample these, with the help of Anna.

DSCN6929Speaking of Pumpkin…

…their pie is grown up and spicy…

…but I’d say if you only order one dessert – it’d have to be the Take-and-Bake Caramel Apple Cranberry Pie.

For $60, this will serve 10 people…

City in the Country

Ah, 3-day-weekends.  We were able to make a quick getaway from the city to hang out with Joy/Corey in the woods!

Joy doubled a vegetarian recipe from Blue Apron Meals

Berries, a massaged kale salad…

Banana Cream…
