The Duo Dishes Pie Collage - The Duo Dishes

In light of the ridiculous downpour soaking California, and the next pounding of snow on deck for the East coast, it feels like a great time to hunker down and crank up the oven. What else is there to do? If you are looking for a great way to spend your time stuck in the house, make a few pies! Custard, cream, fruit, savory meat, grilled, mini…we have them all.

It’s time to get to business and focus on the year that is just a few months from its end. That time can be so busy that you don’t even notice which day is the present, and before you know it, it’s December. How frightening.
