Raspberry Rhubarb Pie

Milestones are happening in the Fleur-De-Licious world!  Milestones like the last day of law school class.  And the last finals ever.  And impending real world lawyer jobs.  MOST IMPORTANTLY however, Kate will be moving to Dallas soon, which is where I live, which means that for the first time since graduating high school in 2006…I get to live in the same city as my best friend.  There will be champagne when she gets here.  We are classy ladies.

Brown Butter Bourbon Apple Pie

Sometimes, it’s right in the middle of test week, and you decide to make a coffeecake, an apple pie, and homemade rolls for premature Friendsgiving.  You just decide this, and you don’t think about the fact that it is a stupid decision, and that you have no time management skills, and that there are more important life skills you should be working on with all this apparent “free-time” you’ve created to bake this stuff.

Cherry Pie

French Silk Pie

My bangs are sticking up every which way.  I politely decline to show you a picture of them.

There is a pile of (clean!) laundry that probs weighs 3 times as much as I do, sitting on the sofa, waiting to be folded.  I don’t want to be rude, but it may be waiting a long time.

In the shower, you will find 3 empty shampoo/conditioner/face wash bottles.  (I also have full ones, just want to be clear that I’m still clean.) The shower is clean, I promise…but why can’t I just throw away (recycle?) those bottles?  Too much effort, clearly.

But the kitchen.  The kitchen, I am proud to say, is clean.  Even my pie plate is clean.  In fact, a clean pie plate is all that remains of the French Silk Pie. (more…)
