Vienna Pie Slice
It’s nice when a new kitchen gadget actually does what it’s supposed to do, which is why I am dedicating this post to the Slice Solutions 9-Inch Sectioned Pie Pan Set. It’s a 9 inch pie pan with a top and bottom that separate in springform fashion, and has a divider insert that you put in your pie before baking.

I really needed to take a new picture of Vienna Coffee Pie, so I decided to accomplish that task while also providing this little demo of how the pan works. Here’s the unbaked pie full of batter. As you see, I’ve stuck the divider in the center. The divider, which I sprayed with flour-added baking spray, goes all the way down through the unbaked crust.

Mile High Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie is one of our favorites and I think I’ve made at least 20 different variations.  The one I’ve been making most often is a version that uses sour cream and doesn’t have eggs, so I was really curious to see how a pie made with 6 (!) eggs would compare. The eggs […]

Chocolate Orange Walnut Cookies

Double Chocolate Cookie

My stepmother is crazy about chocolate/orange, so over the years I’ve made a lot of desserts using that flavor combo. The only problem is sometimes the orange overpowers the chocolate and makes me wish I’d left it out completely. But that’s not the case here! The dough is straight double chocolate and the orange flavor […]

Key Lime Cake

A standard box of cake mix used to be 18.25 oz, but cake mix has been reformulated and most boxes now hold between 15.25 and 16.5 oz of mix depending on the brand. A few months ago you could still find 18.25 oz boxes of certain flavors of Duncan Hines, but I’ve searched high and […]

Luby’s Chocolate Icebox Pie

Chocolate Cream Pie

Having grown up in Texas, I’ve eaten at Luby’s Cafeteria more times than I can count. They’ve updated the menu to include healthier fare such as salads and grilled meat, but one thing that hasn’t changed much is their dessert section. Part of the fun of going through the line is and always has been […]

There’s been some backlash towards pumpkin spice this week, but do yourself a favorite and don’t let the negativity put you off the new limited edition Pumpkin Spice Creme Oreos. They’re really good! Having been burned by some of the other flavors (Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Oreos, I’m looking at you), the Pumpkin Spice Oreos […]
