    I used to have an elderly neighbor who asked me once to make him a Butterscotch Pie for his birthday, and it became an annual tradition. Once, I added a caramel cage, and was surprised at how easy this is to do. Here is a recipe for the caramel, from ‘The Chef In Me’: following video from Worldwide Culinary Apprentice shows the technique; he makes it on the inside of a small bowl, but when I did it, I used a large bowl and drizzled the caramel on the outside; then I snipped the cage down so that it...

  • NATIONAL PIE DAY – December 1

    While it might be the lesser of the two celebrated PIE days (there is also National Pi Day on March 14), it happens to fall smack dab in the middle of a major pie making season. Take away ice cream as a dessert choice and most people are either cake people or pie people. Or to put it another way, most people have cake or pie with their ice cream! Combine bumper crops from our gardens and fruit trees with a booming holiday season full of baked goods, cool weather and rosy-cheeked children; it’s time to tie on those apron...

    Especially at this time of year, I’m a fan of ‘finger food’ that can be made ahead, frozen, and ready in just minutes in the event of impromptu visitors. Nothing fits this bill better than the Gougere, a light savory ‘puff’ of cheesy pastry that goes wonderfully with cocktails and freezes very well. There are many variations on the Gougere, but this one is basic and classic: Last Thanksgiving, I took the advice of Freeper ‘boatbums’, and we dry-brined our turkey for the first time; it really was the best turkey we’ve had, even though we made the mistake...

    My word, what is this dark and vaguely sinister-looking pie you see before you? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s the world’s first Schadenfreude Pie, the pie to enjoy while you are reveling in the horrible misfortunes of others. Why is there a Schadenfreude Pie? Because after I wrote the headline for this entry, I wondered to myself, “what would Schadenfreude Pie taste like?” My guess: Dark. Rich. And oh so bittersweet.

  • 'We can't prove sex with children does them harm' says Labour-linked NCCL

    EVIDENCE has emerged that the views of the Paedophile Information Exchange influenced policy-making at the National Council for Civil Liberties when it was run by former Labour Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt. PIE members were lobbying NCCL officials for the age of consent to be reduced and campaigning for “paedophile love”. Their view that children were not harmed by having sex with adults appears to have been adopted by those at the top of the civil liberties group. Today we publish extracts from an NCCL report written for the Criminal Law Revision Committee in 1976 when Mrs Hewitt was general secretary....

    His wife may be behind the nation´s biggest healthy-eating campaign, but even the president is allowed one day off a year. President Barack Obama is celebrating Thanksgiving with a quiet family dinner at the White House - where he will be feasting on a choice of nine pies. The first family will have a choice of huckleberry pie, pecan pie, chocolate cream pie, sweet potato pie, peach pie, apple pie, pumpkin pie, banana cream pie or coconut cream pie, The Hill reported. The selection offers three more pies than last year. Savory dishes on the menu include turkey, honey-baked ham,...

    WHAT makes a great pie? Bundaberg bakery Tradewinds on Woongarra have found a new ingredient that is getting plenty of attention. Camel pies might not be everyone's cup of tea, but the low-fat meat which tastes similar to beef is proving a hit with customers looking for something new to temp their tastebuds. Tradewinds owner Greg Callaghan said after attending a camel meat field day in Blackbutt last month, he was sold on the virtues of the meat and his pies hit the shelves last week. "So far we are getting a great response from customers," he said. "A few...

    Michelle Obama may be a diehard for healthy eating and exercise, but today on a campaign swing through Virginia she wasn't counting calories. The first lady made an unannounced stop at Mom's Apple Pie Co., a family-owned bakery in Occoquan, a small town about 23 miles southwest of the White House. Obama perused the shop's offerings of fresh fruit pies and jams, as well as old-fashioned candies and a collection of wines and beers. "Oh there's wine!" she said walking through the store. "No one told me there was wine!" Obama also selected two pies from the display case -...

    Karl Rove is right. The fanaticism of the birther faction of the Republican Party is a curse that could sink the GOP. When polls show that barely 30 percent of all Republicans are convinced that President Obama is a natural born American, this is a level of sickness and weirdness in a major political party that could bring them electoral disaster. I have not been shy about occasionally criticizing President Obama when I believe it is called for, but: President Obama is as American as apple pie. He is as American as the nearest red, white and blue flag. He...

    Move over macaroons -- it's pie's turn at the tiara. As recently reported, pies, in all their delicious sweet and savoury glory, are looking to take the world by storm this year. Everyone from trend watchers to food industry types have been trumpeting that a slice of nice is the way to go -- in fact, pie popularity is showing up everywhere from restaurants to retailers, wholesalers and even the wedding cake industry. And having just recently celebrated National Pie Day (Jan. 23 -- pie making as easy as 1-2-3!) we're looking at the whole month of February to pay...
