Before starting my own food blog, I was just someone who enjoyed cooking and baking. Many of the things I made were inspired by not only recipe sites but food blogs. Now that I share my adventures (and misadventures) through my own blog I still continue to be inspired and in awe of so many talented bloggers, cooks and bakers out there. That’s one of the things that I love about being a member of The Secret Recipe Club. I am constantly being introduced to new blogs that I may not have known about otherwise.
As of this month, I officially have a new favorite blog! Life and Kitchen is truly an amazing place to click through. Not only does Lindsay write this wonderful blog but she works full-time, is finishing up her master’s degree oh, and did I mention she’s also a new mother?? This is one lady who has a lot on her plate and seems to handle it all. When I read her blog I feel like she’s a friend sitting across from me. She’s just telling me a story and sharing a recipe. Her writing, beautiful pictures and deliciously easy recipes are some of my favorite things and these are the things that have made me her newest reader. You should definitely check it out!
Each month as I look through my assigned blog, it’s always difficult to narrow my choices down to just one recipe. Lindsay’s blog makes it nearly impossible!! As difficult as it was, today I bring to you a “new to me” pie that I had never even heard of before. In fact, it was only as I began typing this post that I realized this pie was actually Lindsay’s pick for a previous Secret Recipe Club post when she was assigned the blog Shockingly Delicious. Apparently, great minds think alike.
As soon as I came across Bob Andy Pie, I was intrigued. What in the world is Bob Andy pie you might ask? I asked the very same thing. This is a cinnamon custard pie with a wonderfully flaky crust. As the pie bakes all the cinnamon rises to the top making a dark crust on top. It’s supposed to have a look of gradual layers. Unfortunately, I did not achieve that layered look. But layers or not, it tasted amazing! This pie is quick and easy to make and will quickly be gone as well. So delicious! But what’s with that name?
According to Lindsay, legend has it, an Amish farmer came in from working in the fields and upon taking a bite of this pie said, “This pie is as good as Bob and Andy,” his two prize-winning plow horses. That works for me! This pie truly is a tasty pie perfect for any occasion. I didn’t change a thing, so head on over to Life and Kitchen and make yourself a Bob Andy Pie!
