A couple years ago, my now-fiance and I baked our first pie together: apple, with a lattice crust. We both peeled and sliced the apples, he took care of the interior mixture, and I took care of the crust and lattice, all within a lovely, though rather warm, kitchen. Though that wasn’t our first time in the kitchen together, it was our first time for an extended baking adventure, and I’m proud to say we worked quite well in unison.

Now that we have our own place, we bake a little more often. Sometimes when I come home,  he surprises me with a special treat, like pumpkin cupcakes or chocolate cake/cupcakes. (And ALWAYS with homemade vanilla icing!) But it’s even more fun when we get to do it together. Last week, we got to bake an apple pie–same as before, he manned the crust and I womaned the lattice, and I’m proud to say our efforts came out quite wonderfully!

(Even more importantly, it was DELICIOUS!)

Have you embarked on any baking adventures lately?



  1. I wish my man would cook! Haha, you are a lucky lady. That pie looks fabulous! =)

  2. Where in the hell did you find this guy?! I thought my husband was a lost breed of gentleman but apparently there is a pocket of that pack near you too!

    • It’s good to know there’s one more out there–I had assumed my fiance was the last of them! 🙂 (Unfortunately, gentlemen do seem to be scarce these days!)

  3. The pie looks delicious! I’ve never made a lattice top. Think I’ll give it a try.

  4. Looks yummy. Apple pie is my favorite, with sharp cheese melted on top. I’ve never tried the lattice crust though.

    • Oooo, I’ll have to tell the fiance about melting cheese on it. (He loves melting cheese on everything!)
