Reappearance of the Key Lime

Hello all!

So maybe you noticed I didn't update last week. Maybe you were relieved to not have to hear about all the wonderful pies set out to tempt you into doing something against your waning New Year's resolutions. Maybe not. Last week I waited for Key Limes, that most holy of all citrus, but my fresh crate of the wonderful fruit arrived late last Friday. So no email. No time to warn y'all.

Again this week I waited, because I know I'm not the only one who adores this perfect little ball of limey wonder, I've ordered another crate. Fresh. Direct from Central Florida. And it arrived this afternoon. Just. In. Time.

So this week the Key Lime pie reappears. This is somewhat special for me. One, because it is the pie that launched Cutie Pies, and the other because it is simply my favorite. Everyone asks which of my massive pie menu has my undivided attention, and it is, after all the crazy concoctions, this feat of simplicity.

Key Limes come into perfect ripeness at the end of February. They signal the end of winter, the coming spring and the wheel of our year starting all over again. The Key Lime pie was created to simulate sunshine in your mouth, to bring the first warm glow of warmth that will lead a summer kiss of sun.

Yes, I get a bit romantic about Key Limes. They are one of our perfect fruits.

I will also have this week a wonderful, flirty little pie called Cranrazzle Cream, a Cranberry, Raspberry Cream that is simply divine.

Both will be at the Winter Farmers Market at the Hope Artist Village this Saturday, you can find directions here.

We'll also be delivering Key Limes ALL WEEK LONG. There is no limit on this one, just make sure you give us a 24 hours before you'd like delivery. We've got one last crate on the way, so there should be no problem accommodating everyone. Keep in mind because of the graham cracker crust, this pie cannot be done in small form, so whole pies only.

Special Diets: Both pies can be done gluten free. Neither can be lactose intolerant OR vegan OR diabetic. I know this puts a cramp in some sides, but if you need a delivery this week for a special occasion, give a shout, we'll see if there's anything else in my goody bag for you.

That said, I hope everyone is having a wonderful week, and a very happy end of February to you all. Here's hoping for spring and a little sun!

I Heart Providence!

Hello all!!

We've had a whole lot going on of late, but what I'm really excited about this week is showing some love to Providence! Cutie Pies will be at the I Heart Providence event this Tuesday evening (the 10th) from 6-8 at City Hall!

This event is hosted by Mayor Cicilline, who's always nice to bump into, and our Master of Ceremonies, Dan White, will keep us entertained and happy with live music from Jacob Haller and members of Route .44.

You'll also find complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided by Trinity Brewhouse, chocolate truffles for tasting and purchase by Sin, and heart-shaped pies by Cutie Pies. More info at the website!

And the Cutie flavors? I've sort of outdone myself this week. I express love and care through food, and it shows. We have six this week:
1. Wild At Heart, a chocolate, banana and caramel pie.
2. Falling in Love, which is a chocolate crust, fudge filling smashed with raspberries and a mint ribbon.
3. Wild Honey Pie is exactly what it sounds like, a perfect, sweet little honey pie.
4. Isn't She Lovely, a delicate vanilla and rose concoction.
5. My Psycho Ex, which, of course, is cashews and chocolate. Cause their nuts? But tasty.
6. Cupid Can Suck It. Yes, love goes both ways, and this is perfect if you're not currently in a relationship. This one is chocolate, cherries and hand made marshmallows.

We're doing something a little different this week, while we'll still have individual flavors there will also be "Flavor Packs", little cute boxes with miniatures of each flavor. The idea is to give your sweetheart something different this year. Hopefully they will think it's as cute as I do.

And if you can't come on out and show off for Providence, then think of heading to the Saturday Winter Market located at the Hope Artist Village in Pawtucket. Click here for directions

And if you still can't get out of the house? Give us a call, we'll deliver. Yup, delivery is still every Friday between 6-7pm, just give a shout by Thursday evening and you've got it. So that's it for this week, I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines day!
