Not long ago I’ve published a story about the creation of icon for “Buy Me a Pie!” in iOS 7 style and the results of our attempts. I was surprised to see the rush of comments under it, and according to their number and the willingness you shared your opinions on the icons the topic turned out to be a matter of interest! The whole “Buy Me a Pie!” team was monitoring the comments closely since everyone was eager to know which icon wins. As a result #1 proved to be Number One, and frankly speaking I expected that. Now I’d like to tell you more about this very icon: why it was made the way it was made.

A Well Laid Out Kitchen 28.08.2013

fA Well Laid Out Kitchen

@photo

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I really enjoy cooking, baking and trying new recipes. When I look at houses for sale (because sometimes I just like to do that, don’t judge) the kitchen is always a focal point for me. The most amazing house can take a quick downturn if the kitchen is outdated, too small, or poorly laid out.

You can easily paint cabinets, replace counters and add a nice tile backsplash. But if your kitchen isn’t laid out well it isn’t going to feel right. The usability is greatly diminished and it makes working in there very difficult. You can even grow to dislike being in the kitchen at all if it is hard to work in.

Late Night Snacks To Have You Sleeping Well 23.08.2013

what to eat before going to bed
@photo

Sometimes, after a long day doing.… well, all the many things I do in a day, I look at the clock and think, “I really should hurry off to bed so I can get up early and do all of this again tomorrow.” I really try to get a decent amount of sleep each night so that I can function at full capacity (or at least pretty close). But quite often I find that I face a little problem. Just as I am ready to head off to bed I get that all too familiar feeling…

I’m hungry!

So now what do I do? I know that I need to head to bed now if I want to get enough sleep, so I don’t want to spend time making (and eating) a snack. But I also know my stomach is not going to be quiet and just let me go to bed either. And of course I won’t sleep well if my stomach is this empty and my blood sugar isn’t balanced. I also need to be careful because a sugary bedtime snack can lead to a blood sugar spike, and then crash, that can lead to a groggy and grumpy morning.

Make Me A Pie! 19.08.2013

As summer ends and fall draws near there is a bountiful amount of ripe, delicious fruit at hand. It’s a beautiful time to enjoy jams, jellies, smoothies and of course…PIE!

Wether you have never baked a pie in your life (and truth be told, you’re pretty intimidated) or you are a pie professional, we have some indulgent and sweet pie recipes that will have you excited to fire up that oven.

Crust

We must start at the foundation of your pie – the crust. People are often leery of making their own crust, but it needn’t be something to fear. The recipe below is simple and full of buttery, flakey flavor. And if you are short on time, or just not ready to take the leap, go ahead and by a prepared pie crust (we won’t tell).

How often to shop? Plan your time and money. 16.08.2013

smart shopping
@photo

Do we really love popping into the market every day or two to pick up fresh produce, something the kids requested for dinner or something we forgot? Don’t you ever think to yourself, “How I wish I could do this just once a week!”

And really, if you add up the time you spend driving, parking, shopping, loading bags into the car, pulling bags out of the car—you are probably spending an extra 3-5 hours a week shopping that you could be spending relaxing with your family. Impulse shopping is also much, much more expensive than planned shopping.

It is entirely possible to limit the amount of time and money you spend shopping with just a little bit of planning. With the help of standardized pantry lists and a little mental reprogramming, you can become a shopping wizard.
