Takin’ it slow is sometimes okay

3 Mar

Hello readers and fans!

You might be asking – Where have I been? Where did all the pies go? Well dear readers and fans, I believe this was no typical blogger fatigue. About 6 months ago, something went horribly wrong with my neck and shoulders. Quickly, the pain traveled down my arms, and I couldn’t do a lot of the things I really loved to do, like cook and bake. So Ru’s Pie Club took a hiatus so that I could heal. It’s been pretty hard, and I’ve missed baking like whoa.

But I’ve been doing better! And while I take time to work up to full-fledged pie-baking, I’ve been getting creative and thinking outside the pie box. About a month ago, I experimented with creme brulee! Here are some photos:

Brulee-ing the Creme!

Delicious!

I’ve also been eating my fair share of pie. In fact, today I tried Three Babes Bakeshop for the first time, and it was incredible! They operate out of Stable Cafe on Folsom at 18th Street, and are only open on the weekends, 9am-4pm. If you get a chance, definitely head over before this weekend is over because they have THE MOST DELICIOUS lemon meringue pie I have ever had. Seriously. Cole and I got an extra slice to take home. Yeah, it was seriously that good. So go!

    You look ridiculously excited for that blow torch. I would be too.
