I have two VERY exciting announcements to make. First, I am starting a new venture in the baking world: pies! I recently discovered my love of making pies…and anyone who knows me, knows that I am OBSESSED. It’s all I can think about, talk about and it’s all I want to make! My mind is going crazy with possibilities and different varieties. I am also focusing on using ingredients that are all-natural, local and totally fresh. As I have told my husband, I want to be the Jeni’s (of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams) of the pie making world. I admire her vision and the quality of her product so much. It’s totally a difference you can taste and as cliche as that sounds, it’s true! And I want it to be true for my pies.
Of course, I’ll still be making a variety of desserts for my blog but will be putting full-time effort into my new pie business, Sweet Pies by Desserted Planet. I’ll have more information such as menu and pricing in the near future, but to place an order, I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh and check out my amazing new logo, courtesy of my very talented husband! I absolutely love it.
My second huge announcement is my participation in an awesome event called Tux for Chucks. This black tie affair is a dinner and auction fundraiser for my aunt’s amazing organization called One Sole Purpose, a group dedicated to putting brand new shoes on the feet of school kids who cannot afford them. Please go to their website and check out their information under “About Us” and please consider donating to them today (which you can conveniently do online!).
As for my involvement in the Tux for Chucks event here in Springfield, MO, I will not only be donating pie for dessert that night, but I will also be donating a pie to be auctioned off, along with a “Pie of the Month” gift card! I am so honored to be a part of this event! If you live in the area, consider attending and getting in on all the action. It will be a fabulous night with good food, dancing and the best part is, it’s for a wonderful cause!
