  1. Pies vs Tarts - The Showdown.

    [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text text_larger="no"]Picture this: You're finally sitting down at Thanksgiving dinner to enjoy your meal after a long morning of mashing potatoes and filling the turkey.

    That came out wrong - let me start over.

    As you sit down, you begin presenting your food to your guests. But oh no! You mistake your tarts for pies! Rookie mistake, you see. Many people can't actually tell the difference between a tart and a pie. Don't panic! Your pastry ignorance will be no more as we are here to teach you exactly what the difference is between a tart and a pie.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text text_larger="no"]

    What is a Pie?

    [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text text_larger="no"]Ahh, pies. Every grandmother's signature dish. If you were to ask me what food properly describes the American people, this would be it. Pies; at every holiday table, are baked at least once in every household (don't quote me on that) and will guarantee a rough morning after. The biggest indicator that you're dealing with a pie is the slanted edges, thick crust, and one too many toppings. In pies, the filling is where the creativity, taste, and presentation will shine. Pie crust is really only there to hold your fillings together. Making some apple pie? Drizzle some chocolate on there, put some bananas around the edges to spice things up - maybe even add some toffee in there if you're feeling reckless. It's been done! Don't feel even the slightest of shame as the more creative the filling, the more creative the pie.

    Pie pans are distinguishable because of their slanted edges. Choosing a sturdy, presentable pan is integral in your pie-making as pies are typically

    DIY Table Garland Runner

    [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text text_larger="no"]With my DIY garland table runner, I got a few separate bunches of decor from the dollar store to fill out the whitewashed garland I bought from Joanns for about 15$. I tried to vary my shapes and colors of my accessories to give the garland more dimension and shape. I bought some pinecones, more pine leaves and a few silver branches to pop out the silver tone. This whole project cost about 25$.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="44043" img_size="full" parallax_scroll="no"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text text_larger="no"]

    DIY Christmas Wine Glass

    [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text text_larger="no"]With this project you will need:

    1. Hot glue gun
    2. Wine glass
    3. Glitter

    Start by outlining a tree with your hot glue gun, Be sure it's completely filled so the glitter will fill properly. Then, drizzle enough glitter on the glue to fill the surface completely and add a desired top piece. I couldn't find small enough stars but I did find these white balls at the dollar store which worked as well. Let dry and wipe off excess glitter.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image
