Blueberries, Bananas, Guinness and the Best Of!

Hey all! In case no one's heard, Cutie Pies recently won Best Pie in all of Rhode Island from the RI Monthly. Awesome, right? We're very excited over here and going to do our best to keep living up to this great honor.

So this week! We're going to be at Burnside Park, downtown Providence this Friday from 11-2 with the Downtown Farmer's Market.

We'll have some fresh Blueberry Pie and Baked Chocolate Pie. We'll also have Cutie Quiche, Pecan Cinnamon Rolls, Cornbread and Jalapeno Cornbread.

On Saturday we'll be at the Jamaican Independence Fest from 10-10. The fest is going to be located on Prairie Ave. in Downtown Providence. There's going to be great music, food, art and lots of fun.

At this fest we'll have some of the Friday flavors but also our Banana's Foster, that delicious concoction of bananas, rum and brown sugar, sauteed in a little butter and baked into a soft, vanilla custard.

We'll also have our Sweet Guinness Pie. I've recently discovered that Jamaicans love Guinness. So it makes sense they'd love my Guinness Pie. So dig it, it's a sweet Guinness custard with a dark layer of chocolate on top. Yes, this is one of my crazy flavors, but a very loved one.

So c'mon out and see us, grab some pie and enjoy the market and festival. If you need anything at all in the interim, give a shout! We'll deliver or take care of you in any way we can.

Thanks for the love, 'Lil Rhody

Hey all!! Quickly, let me apologize for not updating maybe as much as I have. Why? Well.... weather, a little lack of inspiration. Not sure. I do know our weeks have been very hectic and it's been a stretch. But thank you for hanging in with me and checking out the blog. I appreciate it.

What I also appropriate, and am very humbled by, is the fact that tonight Cutie Pies won Best Pie in Rhode Island, courtesy of Rhode Island Monthly. I'm shocked and very proud. As such a small company, just one and a half people, we've tried very hard to put forth a good product and make as many people happy as possible. Might be heading in the right direction.

That said, we'll not be at this week's downtown farmer's market. We'll be back next week, so let me update the flavors right now: We've got Lemon Blueberry Pop, a sweet and tart lemon filling with whole ripe blueberries covered in home made pop rocks swirled in. If you haven't had this pie or have never heard of anything like it, this is a Cutie Pie original and will completely knock your socks off!

We've also got classic American Blueberry, made with Maine berries direct from Stut Berry Farm. When working a classic no one does it quite like us.

There's also a little Baked Chocolate Mint on the menu, crispy chocolate on the outside, gooey minty chocolate on the inside. Yum!

And last, Tart Lemon Zing. You've had a lemon meringue, this is close, but even, dare I say it? Better.

We'll also have our now famous Pecan Cinnamon Rolls on hand, as well as some fresh Cracked Cornbread (and why not a little Jalapeno Cornbread while I'm at it?) and a little Cutie Quiche.

Will see y'all next Friday, and thanks for all the love, 'Lil Rhody. I'm really starting to feel at home.
