Yingst Ranch + Pear, Quince & Wild Blueberry Pie.

Back before I went to Hawaii I made one last farm trip. I wasn’t sure if we’d find the super secret persimmon farm (future post) I had heard about upon my return. So, what I’m saying is this could have my last CA farm… Continue Reading “Yingst Ranch + Pear, Quince & Wild Blueberry Pie.”

CJ’s Pumpkin Ranch & Pumpkin Pie.

  I’m breaking all kinds of MoFo promises! I didn’t get a chance to post over the weekend because I’ve been too busy pickin’ pears and celebrating birthdays and getting ready to go to Maui this week! Yes. Maui and I are getting together… Continue Reading “CJ’s Pumpkin Ranch & Pumpkin Pie.”

This MoFo has started to get the best of me. I am le tired! But so many posts left to do. What really helps me is writing my posts in advance and then just pasting them here when I’m ready. I never think recipe… Continue Reading “Apple Sour Cream Pie.”

Shoo-Fly Pie.

That was a nice weekend off. I think MoFoing will continue to be a weekdays only type of thing for me. But it’s Monday again so on to delicious things! I’m told that shoo fly pie is traditional among southerners and the Pennsylvania Dutch.… Continue Reading “Shoo-Fly Pie.”

Endless Wonder: The Santa Monica Farmer’s Market.

I hate to come over here and bitch. Dirty life and its stresses and things. Boo. Nay. Well, be gone stress, before I cut you. All I will say is that I moved really fast and unexpectedly (always a good time) and that there… Continue Reading “Endless Wonder: The Santa Monica Farmer’s Market.”

Peach-Blueberry Pie w/ Lavender & Coconut Scented Crust.

The first thing I want to say is forgive the ugly photos. This is a pie I threw together a couple of years ago. It turned out pretty amazing, but I’ve never gotten around to taking some better pictures of it. The coconut scentedness… Continue Reading “Peach-Blueberry Pie w/ Lavender & Coconut Scented Crust.”
