Getting orders ready!

Getting the orders ready! Thank you all so much for the continued dedication and support – means everything to me!

I’ve been stamping Grandma Deloris’ name on her recipe – page 5. She really wanted to autograph them all but she’s weak and her stamina is not the best – so I had a stamp made. She loves that she’s been a part of this journey with me!


Grandma Barbra has been signing boxes and boxes and boxes of books – and not complaining one bit! She wrote the foreword for my cookbook and loves signing the page that has her printed words. Such a special moment. Said she can’t believe she’s doing this ROUND TWO! Hahaha

Rigatoni Pie

I first discovered this recipe on “The Food Network” Facebook page and I knew immediately I wanted to try it. I was not sure I would have the patience though to individually place all the rigatoni pastas into the cake pan – but you know what? It was really easy. Might have taken 4 minutes total! Super easy and the end result is really impressive! 

This is the perfect recipe for entertaining and the perfect recipe to make with your kids! You can use meat in this recipe – hamburger, sausage, lamb – just make sure it’s precooked and that you add it after the tomato sauce but before the shredded cheese. Fabulous and delicious! 


Rigatoni Pie

1 pound rigatoni pasta
1 large jar pasta sauce, plus seasonings
2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Start by spraying an 8-inch springform cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Wrap the bottom with aluminum foil. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Boil the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water for 8 minutes. Drain.

In a medium saucepan heat the pasta sauce and add in whatever seasonings you desire. I added minced garlic, red pepper flakes, basil and a pinch of sugar to mine. Let come to slight boil. Simmer for 15 minutes.

Arrange rigatoni pasta in springform pan. The easiest way to do this is turn rhe pan sideways – arrange the pasta building it “up” – sideways – until you reach the top of the pan. Not all of the pasta will fit. That is ok!

Carefully pour the pasta sauce over the rigatoni and level out with a spoon. You may not use all the sauce. Be sure the sauce covers a majority of the top.

If you want to use meat – layer on top now.

Evenly sprinkle with both cheeses.

Place pie on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil. Place aluminum foil on top of the pie, tenting it slightly. Place in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes remove from the oven and remove aluminum foil. Place back into the oven for 30 more minutes to brown and melt the cheese.

Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Gently undo the springform pan from the pie.

Cut the pie into pieces and serve.

Enjoy!

Chew This! Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Happy “Chew This!” Sunday!!! As many of you know, I write a food column for “The Courier-Times” on the first and third Sundays of each month called “Chew This!” I absolutely love it and love sharing my family recipes, stories and memories. If you are in the Henry County, Indiana area – pick up a copy of the newspaper today and let me know what you think! If you are not, but would still like to take a look, sign up for an online subscription at http://thecouriertimes.com Need help with the online signing up!? Write to me and I’ll be happy to help! blaisethebaker@gmail.com 

I am so excited to share this recipe with everyone. Well recipes – there are two here that I’m sharing. The pie crust is from a friend of mine, Dorothy Boulanger and could not be any more simple! The pie crust does not have to be rolled out, prebaked, proofed – trust me – it is amazing! And the filling? It is basically a huge, soft chocolate chip cookie! The crust is crisp, the inside warm and gooey. My mouth is watering… 

This pie can be made in advance, wrapped and chilled and baked off whenever you are ready! Just be sure not to keep it unbaked for longer than 3 days. After baking, leftovers can be kept covered for 7 days. It is simply an amazing pie and one of my current favorites!
