About Pie Lady Bakes

I love easy recipes that are perfect for family and friends, and that’s what you will find in our FOOD section.  You’ll also notice how much I love dessert, especially pie!

Many recipes are from scratch, like my one bowl scratch cakes, the Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake is to die for! and of course the pie crust!  But we all need a little help and some shortcuts now and then, and that’s what you will see in recipes like my Quick Cake Mix Biscotti that I adapted from an amazing recipe we found on our trip to Italy last August!

In addition to FOOD, we have now expanded to include two new categories, HOMEMAKING and LIFESTYLE.  We’ll explore different topics, like how to cope when you’re feeling overwhelmed, and provide you with lots of helpful information.

You can read more about how Pie Lady Bakes and how we got started, visit our About page.


Do you want to browse through all of the recipes on Pie Lady Bakes? Visit the home page where you’re able to browse posts and recipes by category (i.e. pie, how to make pie crust, cakes, savory pies, etc.), by season, by holidays and special occasions. In addition, you can also search recipes by ingredient! Do you have a of Jar of Nutella lurking in your cupboard? Simply click on that ingredient to find all of the recipes that use it!


Yes I have two kitchens!  One in our RV and one in our city apartment.  Now I’m pretty certain most folks don’t have to stock two kitchens, but if you want to know the specific ingredients and equipment that I use  and recommend to others, go ahead and visit How To Set Up a Baker’s Pantry.
