A Pi Day Surprise
Yesterday was Pi Day, to celebrate Pi we cooks and food lovers take just a little liberty and make it all about Pie. Now I just love pies, fruit pies, cream pies, tarts, galettes, savory tarts and pies. They are all good. I love making pastry crust, I always have frozen pie dough in the freezer in case I need it.
I was busy, lots going on with work. I didn’t check my spam folder as I normally do every day until later in the afternoon and when I did I saw an email from Kate at Food52, she wondered if I would be home today between 1-5PM, they wanted to deliver a surprise. Honestly, I was flabbergasted and intrigued. I love surprises and rarely get one. At 5PM on the dot one of the Food 52 staff hand delivered this pie in this amazing pie box (which I have been meaning to order and now I need to get another one or 2), how cool is that? It made me feel really really good, they thanked me for being a long time member, it made me feel so special. Thank you Food52 for making my day!! Oh and I can’t forget to mention the pie was a salted honey pie, with an amazing flaky buttery crust. SO DELICIOUS!! I ate way too much pie!!
I also want to update everyone on sweet Percy, he is doing really really good. He was a little under the weather yesterday, I think it was the rain and cool temps but today he is doing great. He is very happy in Brooklyn and has adjusted to his new life, made lots of doggie friends and is getting to know his neighborhood.
SUCH an amazing surprise from F52. That pie is GORGEOUS. I love my pie box- know you’ll enjoy yours too!! I’m so glad Percy is feeling better today. I loved hearing your voice yesterday as I do seeing these pictures of sweet P. xo
I know I really was blown away, for F52 to do such a lovely thing really made me ver klempt. It was so good talking to you yesterday as well. You know, Percy likes a long walk in the morning before he eats and yesterdays nasty weather put a damper on it and he was not happy. Today although not great it was better and we walked for about 45 minutes he came back and ate and even wanted seconds, LOL. We have a routine, the walk, eat, a chewy and then he rests on the day bed, pretty much every day and on Saturdays I try to take him to the park. Yeserday’s surprise gift made my day.
Rolling in the Grass…I watch my dog Sami rolling in the grass there are days I feel like getting down there with her and rolls the hell out of myself…🍀
Oh PS…the pie was cute too
Lol, I would like to do the same. Wish I had grass in my backyard. Thanks so much❤️
I cannot think of anyone more deserving of that pie box than you! And I am super proud of Food52 folks for walking around the city and doing kind stuff! Way to go! Lots of love…
Thank you, I was so happy to receive that lovely gift from Food52 and yes to think they hand delivered it made me choke up. Thank you so much.
That’s good stuff! Real good stuff. I could relate highly with this post, as I too love the pie, and lo, I fancy myself also as a grass roller. And I mean that like little Percy is doing…I like to frolic like that, unashamedly. He’s my hero.
I am a super pie lover and I am constantly making pies. This was one of my favorite days. Thank you so much.
That is great! What a cool pie, and sounds delicious too. Percy is the sweetest!
Thanks Mary Frances, it was such a nice surprise. Love Mr. Percy, he is the sweetest dog.
Congratulations beautiful pictures of your pastries and Of Percy. So adorable rolling in the grass.

Percy is so adorable, he loves the grass, everyday he wants to walk to that spot, it’s the grass in front of the coops on Clinton Ave and Dekalb. The other day this guy had his two pugs there also rolling in the grass. Thank you so much.
Food 52 made the right choice when they chose you for his lovely tasty gift of a pie. You deserve it Suzanne. Have a great week. How is the weather n New York?
You are too kind, thank you so much Gerlinde, the weather is nice today. Yesterday, not so much.
I’m going to GermAny next week. I hope I get som decent weather!
Safe travels and look forward to seeing photos from your trip
Love all those pies Suzanne and what a wonderful surprise from Food52. I’ve tried to join, or at least get their posts and I seem to be encountering problems for whatever reasons. So good to see Percy adapting so well and fitting right into the Brooklyn scene 🙂
Thanks Loretta, what kind of problem with accessing food52, maybe I can help. Let me know. They are so wonderful, the community, the editors. It’s a great place to hang out.
Oh my gosh!! I saw that pie from Food52 floating around social media yesterday- how cool that they delivered one to your house! 🙂 Love!
I know I saw it also and then to have it show up on my doorstep was so amazing. It was delicious as well thank you so much.
Wow what a lovely surprise ☺️
Thank you, it was so lovely and unexpected.
Such a lovely surprise for you Suzanne-proud of you my friend!!! Cheryl xo
Thanks so much Cheryl, it was just wonderful.
Congrats on your lovely gift. A gift well deserved, that is for sure. Your pie pics are amazing. I too, love all kinds of pies 🙂 . Your handsome boy, is just so adorable. thanks so much for the update, I am a dog lover too, so think about him often. I am so pleased to hear he has settled in nicely and has made some doggie friends. Hugs to Percy 🙂 Enjoy the rest of the week Suzanne. 🙂
Thanks Lynne. I think Mr. Percy is about as comfortable and happy as a doggie can be. My neighborhood is very very dog friendly and just about everyone has a dog or 2 or 3 and Percy has some playmates. Have a great week and thank you again.
What a wonderful surprise, and so well deserved 😀😀 and such a fabulous looking pie! Lovely to see Percy so happy and settled xx
Thanks so much Elaine, such a lovely surprise. I am still smiling.
Wonderful!! Makes me smile for you 😀😀😀
What a lovely Tuesday treat, Suzanne — pie and Percy! 😀
I love pie too…. any kind of pie, dessert or meal. Yum!!! And your pies look particularly delicious. The photos are gorgeous. Thanks for this wonderful lunch break. Mega hugs.
Thanks so much Teagan, oh me too, love pie whether sweet or savory I love it all.
What a sweet surprise from F52! No pun intended. 🙂 I loved Pi Day when I worked. Kids brought pies in, and we adults went around visiting different classrooms when we had a chance. I have such a sweet tooth. Your fur baby looks happy. ❤
Thanks Mary, a sweet treat and Percy is my sweet boy, a day of sweetness for sure.
Pies are such a wonderful desserts and the ones you have here all look scrumptious!
Percy is one lucky dog. Great to see how well he adjusted. 🙂
Thanks so much Ronit. I think Pie is my favorite dessert so Pi(e) day is a great day to celebrate. Percy is doing so well, I am thrilled.
Surprises are the best, aren’t they?! The pie looks absolutely delicious but the pie box is what really caught my attention- you’ll get a lot of use out of that! It’s so wonderful to see your page alive with updates about a furry friend again Suzanne. Glad to hear that Percy continues to adapt well to his new life with you!
Out of the blue and a total surprise it was wonderful. All in all it was a such a great day,
I love that pic of Percy rolling in the grass… true doggie bliss! The pie from Food52 is gorgeous and I’m sure a most welcome treat!!! Like you, I have been meaning to order that pie box; it’s such a brilliant (and very attractive) idea.
I love the pie box, it’s a great way to transport pies they are protected and you can be assured your pie arrives safely, Great idea and a wonderful gift from my favorite food site
Suzanne, how cool is that! And to think I missed Pi day…And there’s that tart I love! I think Percy must be one pampered pooch and he looks like he’s having a blast.
Pie is something to celebrate for sure and a day devoted to this wonderful treat is a great idea. Thanks so much and Percy thanks you too, LOL!!
Oh Suzanne, just what I like ! May I have some custard ? 🙂
Wonderful indeed ! 🙂
I would love to give you some, thank you so much France.
So glad Percy is adjusting well! he is so cute. Wow that is totally exciting and a gorgeous pie! xxx
Thanks so much Lynn, very exciting indeed.
This pie looks amazing and what a lovely surprise for you too!
It truly was wonderful thank you.
Beautiful! Beautiful!!! You deserve it. I do love that special pie box. Percy looks very handsome and healthy and happy😊
Thanks Susan, Percy is a dear sweet boy.
What a beautiful pie, Suzanne! With some ice-cream or custard, please! 🙂
You got it Mochi, with ice cream and/or custard. Thank you so much.
He is so cute! You are both very lucky … for finding each other … a match made in heaven! 🙂
Have to agree, thank you so much Francesca.
How fun! What a great surprise! So glad Percy continues to do well!
He does, and thanks Michelle it was great fun.
That’s one delicious surprise ! Looks so yum ! Percy is such a sweetheart ❤
Nothing better than a delicious surprise. Thank you so much Freda.
What an awesome surprise! The decoration is just perfect and salted honey…wow!
I know right, salted honey with flaky pie crust, pretty much heaven.
Wow, the Food52 continues to amaze me. What a thoughtful surprise for you! Indulge and enjoy – well deserved. And I’ve been eyeing those gorgeous pie boxes, too…
I am amazed as well, it was so kind and generous and completely unexpected. Thank you so much Hannah.
Oh my goodness, you are blessed to get a personal delivery from Food52, but it’s so well-deserved. WOW! And look at Percy, happy as a camper rolling in the grass. Your pies look so delicious, too. xoxo Suzanne!
I wish I had more grass around me, he loves it so much. It’s kind of a long walk for him to get there. I will have to bring the stroller for him so he can have a roll in the grass often. Thanks so much Kathryn.
Lucky you…that pie sounds delicious and looks fabulous! Happy to see Percy enjoying life. 🙂
Thanks so much Nancy,
Salted honey pie? That sounds SO GOOD! I went with an old standard (because it is easy and I never have time) – Key Lime!
I love key lime pie. It’s wonderful. Hugs to you and Choppy.
What a nice Pi Day surprise! And love the cute photos of Percy! 🙂
Thanks so much Nancy.
Both Percy and Pie and Pi! Equally delicious. 🤗
Thanks so much Lisa.
Amazing…i need to try this out..
Thank you Bhumi!
What a great surprise from food 52 Suzanne! Lucky you. :). I would have eaten way more than enough too.. The lie looks delicious and Percy looks happy! I hope you get a little break in between your work:).
Thanks Sonal, it’s been incredibly busy lately, not complaining though when you are self emplyoyed busy is good. The pie was wonderful and a great surprise. I was stunned.
What a great surprise Suzanne! Salted honey pie–that sounds incredible. And, er, well-balanced, so it’s fine to eat plenty, right? (I know I would eat way, way too much of it!). Lovely to hear that Percy has all settled in as well. It looks so bright and green over where you are, some lovely weather for a roll in the grass 🙂
We had such a warm winter the grass stayed green, only had 1 real snow storm and temps were so mild. Mr Percy loves the grass, it’s his favorite I don’t think he likes cement or sidewalks. The pie was sweet and the salt balanced it perfectly, Delicious. Thank you so much.
Looks like you had a ball yourself on Pi day Suzanne.I envy the lucky recipients.
xxx Massive Hugs xxx.
Thanks David it was a wonderful day. Massive hugs to you to my friend.
Aww the pie box looks so beautiful and what a lovely surprise. So happy to hear that Percy is doing well too!
Thank you Jasline, It was the best surprise ever. It was such a wonderful of the people at Food52 to do this.
I have been having some internet issues and missed your posts on the reader. So had to come visit your site as I had missed reading your posts.
What a nice surprise with the pie box! So happy for you. Also very very delighted to see how happy and well adjusted Percy is! You both were meant to find each other.
Thank you so much Sandhya, I haven’t seen any posts from you in a while. Maybe thats why you are having problems with the internet. Thanks so much I was so happy to get the pie and box and the pie was baked in this beautiful pie plate that has a quote etched on it. Love it. Thank you and Percy is a love, such a sweet boy.
Wow this is an amaxing surprise. … delicious pie… Percy is the sweetest. …passing loads of kisses to him… 🙂 🙂
Thank you Chitra and Percy gladly accepts kisses and hugs ❤️
Wow Suzanne, you are getting as much love as you are giving. So happy for you!
Thank you so much Julie. It was wonderful.
Hi Suzanne, there was no question in my mind that Percy was going to flourish in your care, what a handsome devil.
What a fantastic and honorable treat to receive. Must be all your great accomplishments!!!
Thank you so much. Percy is a handsome boy for sure. Qute the lady’s man too, the girls just love him. That is very kind of you to say, not sure why they chose to send me the pie but it was a great gift and so kind of the editors at Food52. It was such wonderful surprise and totally made my day.
Very Nice of Food 52 friends! I enjoyed reading your opener, “Now I just love pies, fruit pies, cream pies, tarts, galettes, savory tarts and pies.” I just love the sentence! 😀 )))
Thank you so much Fae, me too, big fan of pie whether sweet or savory I love it all.
I am pleased to hear Percy is adjusting well to his new life, I am sure that’s mainly down to having a loving and kind ‘Mom’. Surprises are alway lovely and the pie looks super good. 😉
Thank you so much, Percy is such a dear sweet doggie. I am so lucky to have him.
How cool is that– a pie surprised delivered your door?!! Well, if anyone deserves a serendipitous pie, it’s you Suzanne!! and it was so pretty!! — and thanks for the update on Percy. Looks like he’s happily feel so at home! xo
What a wonderful surprise for you to get that fabulous pie. I don’t blame you for eating a lot of it – I would have done, too. Yout new pug, Percy, looks a lovely dog, and definitely very handsome. He poses for the camera so well. 🙂
I am hungry now! Looks amazing!
