Happy Sunday!

I have been watching this alot lately

and not only it makes me happy, it has also inspired me to do these things:

1. bake pies
2. open up a pie shop
3. eat pies
4. wear pretty dresses
5. to always look on the bright side (this is a challenge)
6. to believe in true love

okay the last bit is super cheesy but i wanna believe in it anyway :)

I am pretty serious about starting up a pie business though. Not necessarily just pies maybe a lil bakery selling all kinds of cakes and pastries too. Our (Stuart and mine) dream is to open up a fudge shop one day but now since I have discovered a new found love for baking I have decided to expand the idea into a full-blown bakery instead...fudge still included. 

This is where you guys come in. I am eager to start baking pies and the only pie I know is Banoffee. Does anyone know any good easy recipes to start with? And are there any tips on how to make the perfect pie? 

I am salivating right now just at the thought of it.

ps. Isn't Anna Friel the cutest? I first saw her on a made for TV movie called "Perfect Strangers" on HBO starring herself and Rob Lowe yonks ago and I fell in love with her instantly. She is so adorable! I have been searching for the movie but can't find it anywhere! I can't download or rent it either. Has anyone watched it? No one else I know has watched it though and I don't think it got good reviews but I loved it. 

Hope everyone's having a lovely Sunday! Loves.


  1. so cute! love the actor of course and the interior and clothing so lovley and playful!

  2. i have a really gr8 pie crust recipe if u need one. & knowin my baking skills that's sayin sumthin. it has turned out evry time i've used it, but i might have just jinxed it ;)

  3. oh my gosh, one of my dreams is to have a little bakery too! i love baking mini things, like mini cupcakes and mini pies:) unfortunately i've only ever baked pumkim pie {not too original i know} and i used premade crust! i'm into shortcuts:) if i do find a good pie recipe i will definitely send it your way!

  4. G'morn ~ You got my attention ... SWEETS! I only wish I could make a pie crust from scratch, as did Mother. What fun you will have with your baking ... don't lick every bowl, save one for me!

    Have a lovely summer's day ~

  5. i LOVE this show! anna friel is a more likable zooey deschanel, in my humble opinion!

  6. Hi Sal, I loved Pushing Daisies too and I'm so sorry they took it off. I really miss it! My mom made awesome pies but I'm sorry to say she is no longer with us. I will look through her recipe box and see if she had any recipes in there. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Nan

  7. i love watching this show too. Ive actually wrecked the first season disk lol emmerson cod is my fave and i was GUTTED when they cancelled it bcuz they set up the end of the second season perfectly for a third!!

  8. oh my gosh, Sal!!! If you open up a pie shop, I will FLY to England with my boyfriend and EAT AT YOUR SHOP!

    I love love love this dream of yours and I can't wait for you to make it happen! I'll be a customer for life!

    And PS, this would be a GREAT reason for me to come and visit England, I've never been!
