The End.

Blueberry Pie

I think this was the last pie I made in Pittsburgh. It was the second to last pie I made in Pennsylvania, before I moved to Alabama for a new job. The unexpected opportunity has caused drastic changes in my life. If you told me three months ago that I'd be leaving Pittsburgh, I would have said you were crazy.

So instead of spending my weekends in the Strip, I am spending them visiting places like this:

Continental Bakery

Pepper Place Farmers Market

Given that this blog was meant to be Pittsburgh centric, I think it's time to conclude it. I don't think blogs should go on forever- much has changed since I started this one, and i'm ready for new projects. Should I start a new baking or food related project, I will let you know. Pittsburgh has been good to me, and I will miss it.

how sad - i just discovered your blog while searching for a recipe for a Lemon Meringue Pie.
Good luck with your new job and in a new city.
Thanks for keeping your blog though so I can dig into some of the other scrumptious looking pastries you have made.

I was afraid this was coming because you are usually very punctual with your blogging. I will miss your blog very much. I have many favorite recipes from your blog, especially the Baked French Toast (which I make often). I never met you in person, but I will cherish your recipes. Thanks for sharing all your culinary skills with the world. You are gifted baker and a perfectionist. Hope you have a change of heart in Alabama and continue your new blog as Alabama Needs Eated.I hope you keep this blog up so I have time to print out all my favorite recipes from this site. Good luck with your new venture!

Lisaaaargh. RIP Pghtasted. I'll miss you and your delightful baking. Please start up a new blog when you're settled in... even if it's rarely updated. I'm selfish and need updates on you! :P
