The Savory contribution from overachiever Regina was this tomato tart, with added bok choy, leeks and mozarella. I went back to savory from sweet when this showed up, which means something.
Laura baked her first from-scratch pie ever with brilliant simplicity. Martha Stewart crust and filling from the pumpkin can label:
15 oz pumpkin
12 oz evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar
1.5 tsp cinnamon
.5 tsp salt
.5 tsp ginger
.25 tsp cloves
Mix the dry ingredients. Beat the eggs and stir in the pumpkin and the dry ingredients. Slowly stir in the evaporated milk. Pour into unbaked pie crust and bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Then lower to 350 and bake for 40 minutes
The snooty food blogs can suck it: this was a perfect pumkin pie.
Of things I’ve baked myself, this cranberry tart is my favorite in a long time. It’s sour (I swapped lemon for orange zest) and sweet, cut by the dirty, dirty walnuts. When you think you can’t possibly eat any more pie, you can eat this pie.
From Becks, the lemon and whipped cream on this pie were delicious, but the saltine crust was truly unstopppable.
If French fries were a healthy food, if macaroni and cheese – macaroni and cheese can be a healthier food, but you know, the good old-fashioned creamy, cheesy, heavy macaroni, if that could be a healthy food, if pie could be a healthy food – I could go on – a hamburger and good juicy burger covered, smothered in cheese.
Lawrence said she ordered McDonald’s on the red carpet at the Oscars.
Hathaway is a vegan.

Clearly the Lawrence approach to snacking is much more in line with my world view, but this seems more like an age difference than a personality difference. I can’t find the quote, which is years and years old and probably from a paper magazine anyhow, but Hathaway definitely used to be in the “I never exercise and love cheeseburgers” camp, and then she hit 28 and wanted to keep her career. Please don’t everyone abandon Lawrence when she is no longer 22 and has to choose between keeping up with career demands on her body and eating what she wants. Chances are, she won’t be your cheesesteak friend anymore, either.
