Cookbook by: Jenna Hunterson

“I learned that you don’t bake a pie with your hands, you bake it with your heart. It requires the essential ingredients: a dash of hope, a cup of courage, a little spice, and some good friends to share it with in the end,” Jenna Hunterson.

A few years ago for my birthday we went to see Waitress the musical on Broadway. At the time Katharine McPhee was in the lead role. It was an amazing show! I was so excited to see they were selling a cookbook and immediately bought it. Since I grew up baking and it is my first love – these recipes speak right to my heart. 

The recipes are very detailed and taste fantastic! Home chef’s of all skill levels can use these recipes to make amazing pies – both savory and sweet.

I Can't Have An Affair Because Its Wrong Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake

I love a good cheesecake and of course I love chocolate. I have made this recipe twice and it is so rich and tasty. My pie hasn’t come out with the marbled look as it is shown in the cookbook but it still looks pretty and is so decadent. Remember this pie needs to sit in the refrigerator for four hours after making it. It’s so hard not to take a bite immediately.

I haven’t made a savory pie before and thought this looked pretty good. The recipe is a little complicated but as long as you read it a few times before starting it’s not hard to make. It wasn’t the easiest pie to cut into pieces when it finished baking. Next time I make this I am going to cook it in individual ramekins as it will be easier to serve. 

A pie topped with mashed potatoes is great on its own but when you add the fact that these were the best tasting mashed potatoes I have ever eaten – yummy.
