4th Annual Pie-Athon! WAFFLE PIE!! – A Vintage Recipe Test

Happy summer everyone! And happy 4th Annual Pie-A-thon. This is the longest relationship I have ever been in!

4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie

I know I have mostly (completely) neglected this blog but the vintage recipe tests are really all anyone (Paula & Mom) care about so help me dust off those moth balls and let’s make some pie.

If you remember last year’s 3rd Annual PIE A THON then you remember that this is dangerous game we play around here. Participants submit a recipe and then are assigned a recipe that was turned in by a fellow blogger. Last year I drew the short stick and was given a pie with FISH in it. Please check it out again to see the torture I put my friends through when doing these recipe exchanges.

BUT luck was on my side this year, or at least at first glance it was, when I got my assignment of Waffle Pie. WAFFLE PIE! No fish! No organ meats! No hard to find ingredients!

This is what Poppy Crocker wrote on the recipe she submitted for the exchange:

Hi There!
These recipes are from Who’ll Do the Dishes?, compiled and published by Columbus Alumnae of Kappa Alpha Theta in April, 1960. I thought the idea for Waffle Pie sounded bonkers, but it might be good if you really love crust. That recipe mentions various possible fillings, but the one for butterscotch filling was right by it in the book, so I attached that one.
 
Whoever gets this, if you’re interested in seeing more about the book where I found this recipe, see Recipes that call for humility.
Good luck!
Poppy Crocker
Go check her post about this cook book. High brow recipes for the time with low brow grammar and spelling. I also found it very interesting that the recipes were not your usual casseroles of the day, the dump and cook of all the canned things on the shelves that were new and popular. I also LOVE that each recipe is hand written. Bunny and Mary Lou will be providing us with our recipe’s today.
HERE is the recipe we are going to tackle this year:
 
First – there is so much butter in this that I am pretty optimistic about how GOOD it is going to turn out. Second – I am not supposed to eat butter, or flour anymore (I blow up like a hot air balloon and have a strong urge to lay on the floor when I do) but hey ANYTHING FOR THE PIE A THON! And Third – I do not own a waffle iron. None of my 20 roommates own a waffle iron. MY MOTHER DOES NOT OWN A WAFFLE IRON!
I bought a brand new one for this project and was excited to get started! (for once with a vintage recipe)
Since there wasn’t a specific recipe for the crust I went to my GO TO lady on the inter webs for all recipes – Smitten Kitchen –  She has NEVER let me down!
She has a similar love for butter, and this recipe has 1 1/2 STICKS! And I will let you know now that I made the recipe as she posted, but split it into two discs. One disc was PLENTY and I made 4 dough layers from it – I have the second disc in the freezer for a rainy day or a midnight snack.
I am not going to do the step by step with the pie dough – instead go to the post linked. She gives excellent instructions and I will just muck it up. I will enforce that your butter, shortening, vodka (YES THERE IS VODKA IN THE CRUST) and water need to be ICE COLD. Trust me!
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
Assemble the dough, divide it and wrap in plastic wrap and toss it in the freezer while you go to make your filling. This waffle pie can be layered with ANYTHING but I was provided with a butterscotch recipe so I stuck with that PLUS I have never made butterscotch before. FUN.
Did you know that butterscotch is essentially brown sugar and MORE BUTTER. Obviously this is going to be delish.
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
Make your filling of choice and when it is nice and thick transfer it into a container that you can put into the fridge. I like to strain my fillings to get out any sugar or bits of egg that maybe didn’t get blended. Set on the counter to cool to room temp before putting into the fridge. This is a great desert to make a ahead as long as you assemble the pieces right before serving.
Next get out one of your pie discs from the freezer. I preheated my waffle iron and sprayed it with Pam. I wasn’t really sure if this was going to work but that is half the fun, right?
I divided the dough into fourths and put some flour on my handy mat to help rolling it out. As I have mentioned on previous challenges I REALLY HATE PIE DOUGH. I have never made it well and rolling it out always ruins it. So far this dough recipe was super easy.
This Bunny chick was a GENIUS with her idea of sticking the dough in the waffle iron. Why have I never done this before?!?! All my pies HENSFORTH will be made this way!
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
Mine ended up taking 8 mins to cook each disk. I would check your first one every 4 mins. You will prob smell it burning if you went to far with it.
I let these bad boys cool and then packed them in a tupperware with paper towels.
My friends and recipe testers were kind enough to have me over for dinner and willing to try this CREATION.
When I got there Lisa had SNACKS waiting!
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
and drinks!

Did I mention THERE WERE DRINKS!
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
I’m a one and DONE kind of girl so after this ruby perfection I was brave enough to bring out this year’s pie!
First we needed to assemble
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
Start with a dough layer for the base then alternate filling with dough.
She isn’t going to win any beauty contests…

On to the TASTE TEST!!
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
This is Lizette’s first year testing for the Pie A Ton. Rafa survived last year’s FISH PIE and has come back for more.
RAFA: Oh wow, it starts off as desert and finishes off as breakfast.
 
LIZ: Magical creamy textured goodness here
 
LISA: All that’s missing here is some fried chicken.
 
SUSIE: Tastes like maple syrup.
 
LIZ: This is like funnel cake’s DAD!
 
LISA: Too bad JOSH isn’t here……
 
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
The verdict is that THIS IS A SMASHING success. It is pretty ugly and falls apart the minute you attempt to cut into it. Eating it family style was the way to go. (the homemade whipped cream I topped it with didn’t hurt either!)
We are already planning a birthday celebration for the girls featuring a Butterscotch Waffle Pie as well as a Banana Cream one. Of course, there will be fried chicken!
4th Annual Pie A Ton | Bittersweet Susie
The Pie a thon is my absolute favorite! Thank you so much for checking it out. YOU HAVE TO let me know if you try to make this pie! Send me photos! And a scoop of pie!
The BEST part about this is getting to see what other funny & creative bloggers post about – so here are the other participants in this year’s bake off: (please check back here – there are 12 of us participating and the links will be updated as soon as their entries are posted)

A VERY Bitter Christmas!

Hi Gang! We are almost in the home stretch.

Bittersweet Susie

In my family Christmas is a casual affair. We get together on Christmas Eve, draw names for a gift exchange, eat until we can’t move and are in bed by 9! Christmas day we just eat leftovers in pjs. I usually eat candy for breakfast to really keep with the manic sugar fuel frenzy that some of us get when we go all in to the holiday spirit.

Bittersweet Susie

What are your traditions?

Today is my BAKING MARATHON DAY! I am pretty excited about it. Also, I have pretty much watched EVERY holiday movie and special there is, some of them twice (I am looking at you White Christmas). I, as I do every year, had GREAT PLANS for all the crafty things I was going to make and per usual I did almost NONE of them. Typical. There is always next year!

I DID manage to make these cute mid century putz-style glitter house inspired from a tutorial on Retro Renovation. It is one of my FAVORITE blogs if you have not had the chance to check it out.

Bittersweet Susie

I also made these HOMEMADE Vanilla Extract that I posted here a few days ago. Look at me posting TWICE in the same month.

And as a HOLIDAY Tradition here on the blog I have for you the 2016 Bittersweet Christmas Playlist! I had a theme going for a minute. First a Country Christmas, then it was a bluesy Christmas and now it is just A RANDOM CHRISTMAS! Like our year this playlist has some ups, some downs, and some total turds! Not everything can be the best thing you ever heard, right? I will be listening today while I finish up (or start) wrapping, and baking, and meditating on being the MOST FESTIVE I can be!

Bittersweet Susie

Cheers to a great Holiday!

No homework! CHRISTMAS VACATION!

 

2016 Halloween Playlist!

Bittersweet SusieHi Friends.

I almost forgot to post this years playlist. I didn’t TOTALLY forget, that is a bit of a stretch. I remembered but I just was not into it. I firmly believe that we should have certain big holidays every other year – that way it is like – Yay Halloween I missed your guts SO much – instead of – OH CRAP HALLOWEEN IS NEXT MONDAY!?!?!

I am usually super pumped for Halloween – I do a bunch of posts and take photos of my spooky adventures. I just didn’t this year. I am sorry. I DID decorate the house a little and the roommies humored me with that. “Festive!” “Cute!” “Oh you decorate for EVERY HOLIDAY?” Thanks gang – I appreciate the understanding and support.

I managed go to two of the major theme parks Haunt events – Universal Studios & Knott’s Berry Farms. I had NEVER been to the Universal one before and had not been to Knott’s since *cough* 1998 *cough*.

I was TERRIFIED of these types of things – but this year I was fine. I am either way more brave or so old and bitter I no longer care to be scared. Either way – they are both fun! I felt like I was everyone’s MOM at Universal. So, there was that. And the lines were ridic. What the crap is the purge and why is it EVERYWHERE. If I had to pick one to return to it would HANDS DOWN be Knotts. I love that little park. And the Ghost Town all filled with fog and decorations is pretty much the closest thing you will get to living in a spooky Halloween special of our childhood AND it has Elvira – plus it is half the price – is there even a contest here? We know who the clear winner is.

Bittersweet Susie

I am also most likely NOT going to dress up for Halloween this year. I was never even temped with that idea. Adult Halloween is sometimes just NOT my jam. I do like carving pumpkins! And the smell of a FULL bucket of Halloween candy. It is the best.

As a peace-offering for being the worst blogger ever for the five friends and family members who read this (Hi mom! LOVE YOU) I have two treats for you today!

The 2016 Playlist! AND some crafty fun freebies! Wooooo! Party!

It is time to get crafty because I made you a “Tomb Sweet Tomb” Cross Stitch – AND of you run out of time (like I do every damn year) you can also just download a free printable fakeout – See fellow procrastinators – I GOT YOUR BACK!

Bang Bang – A Photo Adventure

Greetings everyone! I hope you are well!

Dominique in Palmdale - Film - Yashica 124

My friend Dominique and I have been planning and scheming to shoot together from what seems like FOREVER.

If you don’t already know and follow @tikidominiki then you are a damn fool and missing  out on this incredible sassy pants. Check out her music HERE!

Her shows are so fun and I have the BIGGEST girl crush on her ever – good thing her husband is the coolest!

Our plans are always grand and ambitious – I think partly because we both can be perfectionists and also know the other is going to KICK ASS at anything we do together. The only problem with that is we never seem to just DO IT. We are trying to find a perfect location, or lining up some hair and makeup friends to collaborate with us. In theory this is awesome, because we both want to put our best work out there but I think it also prevents us from shooting some spontaneous places full of happy accidents.

We somehow lined up our schedules and drive out to butt fuck nowhere in the desert to shoot some rogue rolls of film.

There were walmart runs, wrong turns, wild fires, traffic, and some totally sketch neighborhood that had us prepped to JUMP BACK IN THE CAR in a flash.

The results are rad and I cannot believe I waited this long to post them for you to oogle.

Of course – I shot it on film. I used a twin reflex camera from the 60s & shot both black and white and some expired slide film – which I started to develop myself. I never did that before and it has been a learning curve for me. It is way more sensitive than black and white film. Scanning and color correcting is always a challenge and I certainly have a hate/hate relationship with being enslaved in front of a screen for any length of time. Blah!

Check them out:

 

It was incredibly WINDY – hence all the HOLD ON TO YOU HAT poses. She was braver than I was for most of the day, until we got to the scariest liquor store EVER – then I was for some reason FINE. I guess I rationalize that if they have Doritos there than it cannot be that bad.

The best part was the road trip conversations  – day trips are perfect for that. WE HAD SO MUCH to say and no time to get sick of each other & are already scheming for more shoots and maybe some more road trips JUST BECAUSE!

Thanks for checking them out friends!

Happy 50th Mom & Dad!

Bittersweet Susie | Mom & Dad

This month marks my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Let that sink in a minute. 50 years. YEARS.

And I know I am biased, and everyone’s parents (or whoever raised you) are awesome, but FOR REALS, I win.

I got the BEST ONES

I lucked out like WOAH with these too. They are snarky and funny. They are fully supportive of the weird hobbies/careers their 4 kids have decided to do (and then NOT do). You want to play a guitar – here’s a guitar. Oh you want to play basketball – let’s install a hoop – which is particularly hilarious for most of us being arty nerd burgers. They continue to take care of us.

They are fun to be around.

They are open and welcoming and often “adopt” many of our friends as their own kids – well into our adult years.

The craziest part about to story, to me anyways, is the timeline.

It could be considered romantic, efficient, or straight bat shit crazy.

Per mom:

We met in college.  We were in a class together.

First date was December 19, 1965.

Got engaged around Valentine’s Day, 1966.

Wedding rehearsal and dinner was June 9, 1966

Graduated from college in June 10, 1966

Married on June 11, 1966

My mom made this outfit – and NO she didn’t save it! I would not have fit in it ANYWAYS. Mom is a little baby bird.

These photos were taken in a span of 3 DAYS! They are crazy for SURE!

And in celebration of this occasion Mom and Dad have compiled a playlist of favorites for all of you. This is the most random Bittersweet playlist thus far. It may have been fueled by wine.

3rd Annual PIE A THON – Star Gazy Pie – A Vintage Recipe Test

I have been neglecting you dear blog. I don’t have any excuse other than I have just felt very unfunny lately. No-one wants to hear vague complaining and passive aggressive sadness – That’s what Facebook is for.

Luckily, I have the lovely Pie A Thon to drop kick my butt back into it. Nothing is funnier than watching people you care about eat something from a long forgotten mid-century recipe that never should have been made in the first place! I do that AND THEN take photos of it for everyone to cherish.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

I was assigned Star Gazy Pie – 1954 – Pan Am Airways

Along with a little background info –

This is from The Complete Round-the-World Cookbook, published by Pan Am Airways in 1954 (the cover’s not as interesting as the route map they used for the end papers so that’s what I’m sending). They had their various employees get recipes from everywhere Pan Am sent planes to and compiled them into a book, sorting them all by country. This is from the UK chapter. 

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

So, I was excited. My eyes read BACON and then stopped. Literally just DID NOT SEE ANY OTHER PART OF THE RECIPE.

You guys, there is fish in it. I do not DO fish. I seem to get ASSIGNED fish fairly often though *cough Vincent Price Cook-along cough*. 

Who was I going to get to try said pie? Where was I going to buy this little fishy ingredient? HOW AM I GOING TO TOUCH FISH. My dad, being the most helpful, told me that I could go try to catch them off the dock in Oxnard. Swell, And for those of you who are not familiar with this little California seaside town, eating anything caught off the dock in Oxnard MAAAYYYY not be the greatest idea. Because of this Magic/barftastic ingredient I totally put the whole thing off until the day before it was due. Ahhh, high school memories.

I did have ONE friend who agreed to eat it! “I like mackerel!” He said! “I will still be your friend even AFTER I eat the pie!” He said! “I will eat the WHOLE THING!” He said! I should have gotten that in WRITING. Remind me that for the next recipe exchange, will ya? You’re a peach.

Before we dive in to the whole recipe, cooking show, barf reaction shots I need to confess something to you. I didn’t find the mackerel. I only went to ONE STORE the day I needed to cook it and they just didn’t have it. I was kinda HOPING they wouldn’t and I did ask (and received a WHY WOULD YOU WANT THAT face from the butcher) so I had to substitute it with Cod. To me having to cook ANY fish is gross. I am sure the cod is LESS GROSS in the world of fish but as I am typing this to you right now I can smell hint of fish lingering in the air and I just do not care for it. Cooking fish is my kryptonite. Bleh. I also didn’t find Tarragon Vinegar. Can someone please enlighten me to whether this product is still made and WHAT you would want it for.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

So the recipe called for tarragon vinegar. They did not have that so I made a bootleg version that prob didn’t even do anything flavor wise. Ladies and gentleman – dried tarragon in white vinegar. I am sure if I did my homework ahead of time and actually let this steep for more than the 15 mins I had it going it might resemble this ingredient but homework is hard. Such a slacker!

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Butter and add half of the recipes allotment of breadcrumbs to a casserole dish. No specification as to what size so I used this pyrex. I also used some parchment paper because NO FISH IS GOING TO TOUCH THIS PAN, ya dig? Also maybe this is a grand time to preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Vintage recipe test featuring PIE - a recipe exchange

Next, the best part of all the vintage recipes. Butter. Glorious butter.

Vintage recipe test featuring PIE - a recipe exchange

I have the butter going and THEN I remembered I wanted to cook the bacon first, you know to get all the bacon goodness on to the evil fish. So…

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

I put the bacon INTO the melted butter. Evil genius/total idiot. Cook the bacon sort of ( half cook it because you are gonna dry it all to hell when it goes into the oven FOREVER). I love you bacon.

THEN lightly brown the fish (I used cod – pretend it’s THE OTHER FISH)

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Then chop some parsley – and add your spices and salt and pepper. WARNING: I should have SKIPPED the salt in this step. They asked for a lot! Not totally sure why all of a sudden I decided to be a rule follower. Too much fucking salt.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Put the fish in your dish!
3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Add the remaining breadcrumbs. Seems like too many breadcrumbs.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon
Mix egg yolks with the “tarragon” vinegar. Everyone gets in the pool.
3rd Annual Pie A Thon 3rd Annual Pie A Thon

I made the dough in the food processor. I hate making pie dough. HAAATTTE –  usually I cheat and buy one. See examples here and here for past pie dough crimes.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

I hate you too rolling pin. HATE.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

This beast is ready to go into the oven for 1 3/4 hours. Yea. Almost 2 hours to just really DRY THE PISS out of it. Also, look how damn festive I am.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

We also had this plan B, plus sausages. Don’t look at me like that.3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Family dinner is set. Clearly we made other things and are not relying on this pie to sustain us.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

This is Jeff. She is forced to wait in the yard while we do our scientific experiments!

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

In a surprise turn of events everyone took a little to try. Two of these lovely people are essentially vegan but were willing to try it for the cause/blog.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Josh: Tastes Scandinavian (I’m Norwegian) Tastes Minnesotian – It’s really good with ketchup.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Stefania: (who is normally vegan!) BLEHHHHHHHHHHHHH

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Tony: It’s VERY British – Lemon makes it a little better. If it was bacon & egg OR bacon & fish it would work. One of the ingredients isn’t playing together.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Lisa: Agreed! (with tony)

3rd Annual Pie A ThonRafa: Second bite was the seasoned bit.

Josh: (Whispering) Try it with ketchup.

Lisa: It’s VERY salty.

Rafa: You all sound very British right now.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Susie: (I don’t usually try these experiments) It’s fine, it’s edible.

Josh: I like it!

We didn’t give any to Jeff, even though she seemed interested.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Verdict: So very dry, so very salty, but edible. The bacon helped but the lack of moisture plus the ton of breadcrumbs ruined this dish. Josh liked it and requested the recipe. I always think I make these things wrong in the end.

3rd Annual Pie A Thon
I love doing these recipe exchanges! Please check out what my fellow explorers had to cook up!

3rd Annual Pie A Thon

Thanks for stopping by friends – here is your homework:

• Would YOU make this pie?

• What makes this a pie? The crust?

• Do you have a recipe that everyone hates but that you love with ketchup?

Where have you been?

I am sure the 5 of you out there reading this have been asking yourself the SAME THING. WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN SUSIE?

Vintage Los Angeles • Photo by Susie Delaney • Janet Fischietto

Well, I have been hustling. I had a few life changes occur over the last few months and I just have not been sure what the best way to deal with them is. Do I rant on my blog and complain about what is going on? Do I ignore it and pretend nothing has happened but let it fester anyways? OR – Fucking use it as an opportunity to do what you want.  And that is exactly what I have been doing!

I am getting back to shooting film. It is what I started on when I was in high school – and what Brooks BEAT into us after.

I broke up with film for a long time. We fought, film wasn’t giving me what I thought I wanted, I blamed film. I am happy to report that we are back together and very much in love. Both of us have changed and at the same time are both are totally stubborn selves.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

••••

I have been teaching my friend Josh ( check out his instagram @joshsorheim to see the fun stuff he has been shooting) how to shoot manual and how to develop. His completely   bat-shit enthusiasm has reminded me how I used to feel about the entire process. I foresee many more photo adventures and smelling like fix in the future.

With that being said I am going to be posting these quick little shoots here from time to time. I always post one or two on instagram but there are so many I would like to share and not be a complete self important asshat about it. So I am going to be one HERE, because IT IS MY DAMN BLOG!

••••

I had the pleasure of being acquainted with Janet (see her instagram here) from mutual friends, roommates, and just knowing she is a creative vintage force. She travels a LOT and while we have exchanged messages about wanting to work together time just seems to slip away from us. When I realized she was off around the world again I asked if we could get together for a quick little shoot. SHE WAS IN!

We went up to the Griffith Observatory at dusk – and I brought a few rolls of film and my little TLR and we pretty much just did a lap around the property and left (and celebrated with a glass or two of wine and CHEESE)

She did her own hair, makeup, and styling and needed ZERO direction. These photos are equally hers as they are mine. I love it when a plan comes together.

Please check out her site  –  http://www.janetfischietto.com

I am convinced she is just visiting us from another time. I am also convinced that we need to be besties and run around LA together every time she visits!

I am going to work on that one.

••••

I develop my own negatives at home – with some experimental combinations that Josh and I have been working on – then scanning and doing my post until I have a dream house with my own darkroom.

Homework:

• Do you have a hobby or skill you used to love and don’t use it anymore?

• Is there one you wish to learn?

• How do YOU deal with stressful life situations? Is being creative a factor?

 

 

Come back soon, I promise to be here!
