Now is the time for all good boys and girls to start dieting. Well, not really now, but soon. And, so, if you’re about to start exercising a little self-discipline and deny yourself some things in the name of hotness, what better way to go out with a bang than with… PIES!!!

This post is a bit of an homage to sucheela and her awesome baking blog. But unlike her, I don’t have the patience and dedication to type in three different recipes. Especially when the Dutch Apple Pie recipe was incredibly detailed, and two pages long.

Also, I suppose that I should have posted this early this morning (or late last night, however want to think of it), but, hey, cocktails don’t drink themselves, you know.

Anyway. Without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the pies:

First, the Zucchini Pie:

A wonderful savory pie. Yummy hot or cold. One important note: remember the Dijon mustard next time (although I must say that it was still delicious).

Next, the Blueberry Pie:

The sugar on the crust adds that extra blast of sweetness - just in case the blueberries weren’t enough by themselves.

And Finally, the (Sorta) Dutch Apple Pie:

It’s a “sorta” Dutch Apple Pie because the recipes calls for raisins as well as apples. But, outside of oatmeal raisin cookies, I’m not a huge fan of raisins in my baked goods. So, it’s just full of apple-y goodness. And sugar. The streusel topping is chock full of it. Mmm, mmm good!

Now, of course, even if you’re trying to gorge yourself before a diet, there’s only so much pie you can eat in two days. And you know what this means, don’t you? That’s right, folks - these pies (or at least what remains of them) will be at work Monday morning.

It’s OK - you don’t have to thank me, Rebecca.
