Let Them Eat Pie Mix: RADAID, katsen, drummer, melodics, mumford & sons, Ellie Goulding, Shad K, Tada Tata, Monotonix and more


Jean-Jacques Rousseau did not have me in mind when he wrote in his Confessions book "Qu’ils mangent de la brioche. J’achetai de la brioche." This quote is generally translated as "Let them eat cake. I bought some cake (but in all actuality refers to brioche, a French egg bread). Cake is too rich for me, too much icing, not enough good stuff. I'll take pie over cake any day. That's why I love November so much. It seems that no other month of the year sees so much pie sent my way. Pumpkin, apple, peach, cherry, blueberry, raspberry, rhubarb and strawberry. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying. It's pie out the wazoo. That's what this month's playlist is all about. Eating pie, baking pie, sharing a pie with the whole world. Everyone out there, this crust is for you.

The Bourbon and Orange Pecan Pie pictured at the top of this post came from this month's Real Simple. I put in more vanilla and less corn syrup than the recipe called for and used my own pie crust.
