I Propose Pie Season Be A Real Thing

pieby Steven Doyle

Is there a thing called “pie season”? I know there is a Pie Council, possibly in the same vein as Garrison Keillor’s “Catsup Advisory Board” or his “American Duct Tape Council”. Pie Season to me would encompass most of the calendar not already loaded up with pie goodness such as National Pi Day, or Pie Day. There is also “Eat a Pie Day – December 1”, “Raspberry Cream Pie Day – August 1”, “National Cherry Pie Day – February 1” and a litany of other super cool pie days. But Pie Season could happen four times a year with a suggestion of seasonal pies throughout.  Continue reading

Our Thanksgiving Tradition: Pie From Malai Kitchen

by Steven Doyle

I have always been enamored by the incredible dishes at Malai Kitchen in West Village in Uptown Dallas, but wanted to share what was probably the best part of any of the meals I have had there – the coconut pie.

I loved the pie so very much that we called Malai a few years back and asked for the recipe.  Now we are not normally a recipe loving web site, but this pie is special.  It deserves all the love and attention it can garner.  If you can bake pies, use the recipe.  If you cannot, call them and reserve a pie for your Thanksgiving table. We like to run this recipe every year now in hopes one of you will invite me for a slice!  Continue reading
