Pie Another Day

JamesBondPie1_Finished

Word is that Daniel Craig recently turned down a gazillion dollars to continue playing the role of James Bond. That may or may not be true, but if he returns you can celebrate with a pie. If he doesn’t and a new Bond is chosen…celebrate with a pie.

We recommend whipping up a few vodka martinis (actually don’t. Vodka martinis are inferior, not to mention weak when shaken), and this no-bake Oreo “Pie Another Day” pie from Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin (otherwise known as @ThePieous).

Head on over to Boing Boing to check out the full recipe.

Dan Whalen of “The Food in my Beard” blog recently had a moment of inspiration that led to the creation of the Grilled Cheese Taco.

In place of tortillas or shells, Dan calls for grilled cheese sandwiches made from bread sliced with a “really long bias”, while the stuffing consists of conventional taco favorites.

“The taste is as you would expect,” Whalen explained. “The flavors of a grilled cheese and a taco in one, but it creates something greater than the sum of its parts because of the crazy way it looks and the texture when ground beef starts to soak into the bread. The crisp lettuce and fresh pico is also important to balance out the heavy bread cheese and meat.”

Thankfully, Dan has created an easy recipe that you can check out here. There’s also an additional mouth-watering pic below. [click to continue…]

Jabba The Tart

Untitled-3

Piemaker Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin made these snazzy-looking apple turnovers in the shape of the most visually inconsistent Star Wars character across the entire saga. No, not Yoda (seriously, what was up with his mouth in the prequels?), but… y’know. Jabba The Hutt.

Using just two apples, some patsry and a hint of cinnamon, Jessica has created a version of Jabba the Hutt even Han Solo wouldn’t object to. I mean, probably.

Indeed, the container holding this candy is edible. Dave Hax created the vessel out of chocolate and fitted it with the label and lid from a conventional bottle for added realism.
