Chess Pie

Hi there! Long time no see. We got a puppy; his name is Crunchwrap Supreme. Crunch(y) for short. Yes, after the Taco Bell culinary breakfast delight — of which I’ve only had two or three — but relish in the silliness of the name and the reactions we get on walks and in dog parks. Let me tell you, he lives up to the name on all fronts.

Of course he’s adorable and I absolutely bust out photos of him when people haven’t even asked, but we’re here to talk pie. Chess pie. And Crunchwrap is here for it too.

Mexican Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate Pie

You wouldn’t think I needed another rejuvenating California fix after my recent trip to LA, but I did. I went to San Francisco for ten days last week and just about died I was so incredibly happy and relaxed.

I got to explore more of the city and a lot of the East Bay. I got to go north to Muir Woods to breathe in that amazing redwood scent and to Stinson beach to dig my feet in the sand while enjoying a picnic with one of my favorite people in the world. I got to spend the whole time with some of my closest friends from high school and college. I got to relax, bake, and go running and hiking; I got to try some pretty freakin’ outstanding restaurants and some trendy SF bars.
