I never remember until the news makes a big deal about March 14 being Pie Day. It always sounds like fun to bake a pie on that day. If you know me, I’m always late. So let’s make today my day to make a pie. What pie should I make? Fruit, meat, or surprise? Let’s pull out that magazine I bought, that I put all those pink post it notes in and bake up a pie. Let’s pick Orange Chocolate Ricotta Pie by: Trisha Kruse of Eagle, ID It looks easy enough, I know where the ricotta cheese is at the store, always a plus. Ready, set, bake.
Looking pretty. I found myself having fun making the lattice work. My first pie. Now for the tasting test. To be honest, I really think I needed to put in the orange liqueur. The taste is a little boring, sorry Trisha. The chocolate with orange is different. I’m excited that it baked all the way, didn’t burn it and the smoke alarm wasn’t needed.
This wasn’t a complete disaster. My kitchen is safe and one more thing off of my March challenge list.
