13 Mar Your Weekly Internet Spoils: St. Paddy’s Edition

St. Patrick’s Day is a very strange phenomenon, my darlings. (And I’ll get the pedantic lesson out of the way quickly: It’s abbreviated correctly as Paddy’s, not Patty’s, because it is not St. Patricia’s Day, which is in August.

10 Feb Spicy Apple Hand Pies

What makes a pie better? Being handheld. And able to kick you in the teeth with spice.   Depending on her temperament and level of spice tolerance, your grandmother will either find this take on the classic apple pie invigorating or a terrifying abomination. Personally we think a little kick of non-traditional apple pie spices help to balance out the sweetness. Hand pies also eliminate the need for hand-washing all of grandma’s silver serving pieces. Just be…
