The Pi(e) Maker

heart+home, yumcourtneeComment

Happy Pi Day!! And how else do you celebrate the world’s most famous number? With pie, of course!!

Friends, family and anyone unlucky enough to have a casual conversation with me about television knows that my most favorite show is Pushing Daisies. I’m still not over it’s untimely demise! One of my favorite parts of the show were the delicious and unusual flavor combinations of the pies offered by Ned, the pie maker. I couldn’t think of a better time to make my favorite inspired by Pushing Daisies Apple with Cheddar Cheese Crust pie! If you need me, I’ll be here watching my favorite show and eating pie for dinner! YOLO!

Being a toddler mom is a tough and messy job! the days are long, my employer is demanding(but adorable!) and the pay is nonexistent! sometimes I need to remind myself that I'm my own person. To me, this means putting a something a little nicer and treating myself to a meal that I can sit and enjoy!

a few days ago, I treated myself to dinner at a fancy diner. my meal included a heath bar milkshake with handmade, burnt marshmallow fluff, tater tot poutine, and a buffalo bleu dog. OMG!!! it was worth every single calorie! 

Even without my kid I somehow ended up with poutine on my dress. and this my friends, is why I gravitate to prints! despite the camouflaging nature of a pretty print, I still want to take care of my things so that they always look good and I never have to worry about the errant food leaving a forgotten stain!  

Thanks to a recent trip to Wal-Mart, I had Shout® Trigger Triple-Acting Stain Remover on hand to help me get rid of any telltale traces of my dinner!



It works quickly to penetrate an dlift stains and I don't have to worry about the temperature of the wash cycle or concern myself with Shout® Trigger Tripple-Acting Stain Remover fading any of my colorful prints.
With an incident that could have left me too bummd to enjoy the rest of the evening, safely handled byShout® Trigger Tripple-Acting Stain Remover, I was free to enjoy an after dinner walk on the waterfront.


strawberry muffins{oh my heart eats}

while strawberry season is technically over i can't seem to quit them! they are without a doubt my favoarite fruit and i love that they can go sweet or savory.

i like to cook but the precise nature of baking intimidates me. i'm determined to change that! i decided to make some strawberry muffins. muffins are kind of fool proof...right?

 they were pretty simple to make, even for a novice baker. they were prepped, baked and cooled before the end of rowan's nap. and the verdict-delicious!
