Happy Saturday, friends! Can you even believe that it is March already? I can only hope that March brings with it more sunshine and fewer snowflakes than February did.

I know that I am always excited to introduce my Friends First guests, but there is a special reason that I am thrilled to introduce Amy from Very Culinary to you today: her’s was one of the first blogs that I started reading during my senior year of college, before I even considered starting my own food blog. I adore Amy and cannot believe that I can now truly call her one of my friends. I think you’ll adore her, too! She’s a wife, mother of two, beagle lover, fellow curly hair sufferer, snow hater, and pie addict. Truly, I think we were meant to be. She and her husband, Paul, also make the most awesome parody videos. The “Royals” and “What Does the Fox Say?” parodies had me in stitches. Knowing how much we all love pie, she made us an incredibly easy (and gooey!) Macadamia Nut Butterscotch Cookie Pie, further proving why my love for her is eternal.

Hi gang! Thrilled to be here and sharing Stephie’s space for a day.

New to Very Culinary? Well, here are a few things about me that will catch you up to speed:

1. I get up at 4:30 each morning, but don’t drink coffee.
2. I used to have a career in the music business, but like silence when I’m working.
3. My husband and I both work from home. Have mercy!
4. If you were to hang out in my house for a day, you’d think you had front row seats to a musical (except the singing and dancing isn’t very good.)
5. I have super curly hair. And not that wavy-curly that everyone thinks they want. More like the kind where ladybugs hitch a ride.
6. I am an absolute emotional disaster if an animal gets hurt in a movie. I don’t care if it’s not real. It looks real enough!
7. My mother has the patience of a saint. And it skipped a generation, because I do not.
8. I love an easy stir-fry. And no good stir-fry should ever be served without white rice. Paleo will never happen for me. Ever.
9. If given the choice between any dessert and pie, pie will win every single time.
10. Even though I know how to make pie crust, I’m a big cheater and buy it.

So I made pie for you today. And it doesn’t get any easier than this. If you’re an over-achiever like Stephie, feel free to make your own crust. I won’t be offended!

  1. It’s Amy!! Yay!! My soul sister–or something like that. Ladybugs hitch a ride. Hahaha! Has your best friend ever told you that you are going to look like a white poodle in the nursing home (and for the record, she still is my bestie, even after that comment. Thank goodness for color). This pie looks awesome!! I need it in my life, and no chocolate for my weirdos. This is going to happen. :) Someday, we will meet, dang it (and let’s choose your area if it’s winter).

    • Omg. You two are my absolute favorite thing to happen last year. Yes, happen. Like an event. Because it was epic. And FWIW, there’s a house down the street for sale. Just sayin’… xoxo

      • Welp, I think more than one person has considered the two of us an event. Here’s an advantage to you moving here (ok, I’m stretching this idea): we have an awesome hair stylist that can work wonders with terribly curly hair. Does this overrule the snow thing? That’s up for grabs, because we’re due for another round of the stuff tonight. {sob} But, yes. Finding you was epic for me. :)

      • FWIW, I’ll be there tomorrow. *dreams*

  2. Wheeeeeee! Wait, I didn’t know I was one of the first blogs you started reading – that’s a little nugget of a secret. *blushes* Oh my gosh, so much love today. Can I go back to bed before someone ruins it? Lol. You’re the best, girl!! *mwah*

  3. This pie. OMG. And those parodies. OMG. So much to love about this post.

    But seriously that pie.

  4. OMG COOKIE PIE?!?!?!?! If I wasn’t feeling soooo lazy right now I would get up and make this then return to the couch and eat this whole thing in one sitting!

  5. Love this! cookie pie…….yum!

  6. It’s so nice to meet you, Amy! I love that picture of you with the pig. I adore pigs! This pie sounds fantastic. Pinning!

  7. Darn! I don’t have the macadamia nuts or butterscotch chips! How about pecans and I’ll carmalize some of the white chocolate? I have butterscotch pudding…. Seriously, I do NOT want to wait to make this pie! It looks and sounds heavenly!

    Fun to learn some new things about you, Amy!

  8. I seriously love everything about this post. Pie, macadamias and butterscotch (omg), two lovely ladies (I can’t believe that I’ve never met the eternally lovely/pie genius/curly haired wonder that is Amy. What’s with that, Stephie?!) and… well, pie. It’s so wonderful that it deserves two mentions. I am definitely going to make this. You could even call it ‘Aussie pie’ due to the macadamias. Well, I’m going to ;) Another gorgeous FF post Stephie! xx
