A first!! Cutie Pies is sold out. Already! We have nothing for tomorrow's market, so we've got a rare Friday night off. If you need something extra for Sunday to give to your sweetheart, give a shout and we'll take care of you. Thanks!

I Heart Providence

Hey all!!

Just in case you forgot, with all the snow, new episodes of Lost and every day living, Valentines' Day is just around the corner. Not to worry, we've got you covered. This week the Cutie Pie crew are putting together little gift bags that won't break the bank but will make your loved one feel special. A little bit on that later, first, where to see us this week!

I Heart Providence
has come back around, and this year should be an even better party. Held at City Hall and starting at 6PM on Thursday the 11th, this party is the end all be all of lovers and lovers of Providence. Come by for some food, music, and get in the media booth to tell the world why you love Providence. Things aren't that bad, show some love.

We'll also be at the Hope Artist Village Winter Farmers' Market, complete with our Valentine flavors, just in case you can't join the festivities at City Hall. The market starts at 11am and we'll stick around as long as we've got pie.

So what are we serving? Four delightful flavors this week! Follow me down the wonderful and wicked ways of love.

Falling in Love This was a favorite last year and has been heavily requested. A chocolate crust filled with a dark chocolate smashed with raspberries and a mint ribbon, this is the perfect way to let your loved one know exactly how you feel.

Wild at Heart Not just in love? Completely bananas? Chocolate whipped with bananas and covered in caramel, this succulent little pie will have your sweetie swinging from the chandelier.

Vanilla Heart Not a chocolate fan, are you. So, try this lush vanilla with an eggy center, complete with a bruleed top. Yes, vanilla might sound boring to others, but Cutie Pies makes it decadent and new. Surprise your partner with... vanilla!

Cupid Can Suck It Ok, not everyone is in love, and the big V-Day celebration isn't always well timed. So what? You can have a pie, too. Chocolate filled pie full of cherries and hand made marshmallows. No love has ever tasted better.

So that's it, y'all! Give a shout, email or phone, and we'll hook you up with a gift box, whole pie, tasters, cuties, whatever you'd like. You can even call and tell me what you think the next pie name should be! Hope to see you at I Heart Providence, it will hoot of a time, but if not we'll catch y'all later in the week. Until then, keep warm!

Who Dat Pie & Sweet Ricotta

Hey all!!

Alright, so unless you've been living under a rock or you're just not interested in football, the Saints are headed to the Superbowl this Sunday. Now, I admit, usually, I don't care. I am, however, from New Orleans, and am part of my tribe.

So in honor of my city's team heading to the big show in so many freakin' years, I'm doing a Who Dat Pie. Now, I have to maybe explain this a little bit. I've been getting a lot of questions about what, exactly, a Who Dat is. It's our fight song. As in, "Who dat sayin' they gonna beat them saints, who dat?! Who dat?!"

The Who Dat song has sorta.... well, let's just say the city has done exactly what my city does, and everyone is now doing their own version of the Who Dat song. In case you'd like to know what that sounds like, take a look at the Times Picayune/ site to hear the whole line up of songs. It really is quite fun.

So what's in a Who Dat Pie? Chocolate, lots of it, and pralines. And lots of lots of love. Molasses. And more pralines. And cream. And more pralines. Who dat sayin' they gonna eat that pie? Who dat?!

While I'm usually very fair and like to put in both sides of pie, in love and not in love for Valentine's day, all political candidates, the front runners of any race..... not this time. I'll admit, I live Persimmon Pie (the best persimmons being found in Indiana), but they aren't in season. And no one around here really knows Shoofly Pie. So what to do?

Go local.

That's right, this week we're featuring a local favorite, the Sweet Ricotta. For once I won't put berries or honey or anything in it, just let this wonderful little pie speak for itself.

We'll also have a few Key Lime Pies at the market this Saturday, but only in whole pies, the crust won't allow little ones. So jump on them while they last! There's also going to be some quiche (new flavors!) and maybe, if we have time, cinnamon rolls.

Alright, y'all, see you at the Hope Artist Village tomorrow from 11-2. Hope you have a great weekend!
