About Eloise in the Kitchen

Hello, and welcome to my blog.  A degree in English Literature and a passion for pies, and what do I do?  I become the Pie Girl.  An equal opportunity baker, I am not picky when it comes to confections.  My only prejudice– that my pie crusts be flaky and my cookies be chewy.

I’ve always felt that no matter the event, food is what brings everyone together. Some people mark their memories through photographs, others through souvenirs, but I… I navigate through nibbles. I may forget whose party it was, what I was wearing, or the music that was playing, but one thing’s for sure: I’ll remember the dessert.  We bond over burgers, laugh over a bowl of pasta, commiserate over a cup of coffee, and connect over a slice of cake.  Join me as I share bites and snippets from my life over a pie dish.  As I take a trip down memory lane—from childhood to today, from Los Angeles to Europe, and back home again—I will recount these stories, tasting and recreating those memorable memories and meals.

    I can attest to the fact that your pie crust is flaky and your cookies perfectly chewy! My mouth is watering as I write.

    Hi Eloise! It’s so nice to “meet” you – thank you for saying hi after reading my blog for a while! I can’t wait to follow you – but I can tell right from this about me that I’m going to love your blog and writing style 🙂 It’s true – so many memories are formed over food. And maybe you’ll inspire me to try baking a pie 😉

    I am a fan. Of you, your writing and I will be a fan of your baking if I get to taste it (hint hint)! Your curls are SO fab. How did you grow up when I’m the same age as I was when you were tiny??
