Make it & Take It Highlights 2017 ~ Part One

Without a doubt, the 2017 Make it & Take it  was the best ever!! Over 110 guests and 125 pies! I gotta give a shout out to long time oven master, Philip!  He slays!

We had lots of new faces and pie bakers this year. This guy.

Who later, turned into bossy Betty, jamming with the band, asking for the Beatles and “words with songs.” At one point he yelled, “it’s too slow!”  We all fell in love.

Of course, Ana and Dr. Ruth were there, bright and early, weaving pie dough, making masterpieces.

Can you believe this beauty?

Nalysia worked the front door with great aplomb, and a gorgeous smile. Love her to pieces!

Jade was amazing, and doesn’t she look Parisienne, here? Jaw dropping style, this one.

Did I mention? Elise, from We Adorn You, painted faces for a few hours.

I love when pie makers bring their Momma. All the feels.

This little guy has made at least 4 fudge pies in his lifetime. He told his Mom that night, that he wanted pie for dinner. She said okay, and gave him a piece on a separate plate. He said “no, if it’s for dinner , the pie needs to be on the dinner plate ( right next to the grilled cheese)”. In the end she agreed. PIE FOR DINNER!!

Did I mention?  Spiderman was in attendance!

It was a perfect day to make a pie.  Big shout out to Juli Frankel for these amazing snaps.  Wait, is that Rachel??  Making off with Ana’s pie??  PUT THE PIE DOWN, SISTER!!

And one more shout out to her, the sissy of all sissy’s. She helped me organize all the ingredients the day before, she made gluten free crusts and then, went to a concert that night! All I had to do was hang out with my favorite seven year old. Let the Holidays begin!

Our 2017 Batch of Fire Cider is Ready!

Yes it is exciting and, of course we’re not supposed to call it “Fire Cider”  given the trademark issues and all.  But for those of you who cannot get enough of this magical elixir – The time has come and we have it in stock! (Scroll to the bottom for prices.)

I wanted to walk my fans through the process, since it takes six weeks to brew. I’m not kidding and It helps to talk about it.

First I fill a very large jar with all the goodies. That horseradish gets me (and my sinuses)  everytime.

That’s only half of the ingredients. I pack it most of the way full, so it’s really hard to stir. Then I pour in 4 gallons of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, wrap it in a dark cloth and stir it everyday for six weeks.

When it’s ready, I strain it three times and add one-third of the amount of local honey, bottle it and label it.

 Here’s a little FAQ sheet I made with all the benefits…and..IT’S READY PEOPLE!
