pieIf you’re not a great baker but are a great hostess, try buying a selection of delicious pastries from Simply Pies for your next dinner party. Locals Nancy Blau and Hanna Miller schemed from scratch to recreate the perfect crust from their childhood memories. “Everything that we use is organic, and we try to buy local farmers market whenever possible,” explains assistant manager Kaitlin Blume, a fellow pie-girl from the south. “We’re now expanding our menu to include meat pies, made with organic, grassfed beef from Rancho San Julian.” Simply Pies makes several seasonal treats, including apple, blueberry, mixed berry, coconut cream, lemon meringue, and lemon dream (from $3.50). –Gay Browne
