Ah, the elegance of a small, silky pie. Thank you to Archimedes of Syracuse and to Geometry teachers everywhere for sponsoring today’s deliciousness. As you will see all over the cooking world, today, March 14 (3.14) is dedicated to all things pi(e). Similar to the cakes from my Small Cake Series, a small pie can be shared if you wish. But it certainly doesn’t have to be: leftover pie for breakfast is a lovely indulgence.
Do you want your salad to sing? This is possibly my favorite vinaigrette (though there are about 5 others in the running– I’m sort of a vinaigrette-addict ever since I learned to make my own.) It is simple, quick, always fresh, and I know exactly what’s gone into it. Though white balsamic vinegar may sound exotic, I find it at my regular supermarket. In any case, it’s well worth the bit of extra looking that your eyeballs may have to do in order to find it on the shelf.
