It should, perhaps, comes as no surprise that food blogs left and right were churning out the most decadent, mouth-watering pies this week. The pictures, the recipes — I was a drooling, bookmarking-crazed mess with it all. You guys — all of you, posting about these irresistible pies — you’re killing me! But only in the tastiest way. I did also manage to find some delicious sounding and looking healthier recipes, and tried out some workouts that actually killed me, so hopefully this has turned into a well-balanced collection of links.

And if you don’t find yourself dreaming day and night of over-the-top pies after this, I may have to question whether or not you’re actually human.

What I’ve Pinned This Week:

Image from How Sweet Eats

Custom-Fit Copper Kitchen Aid Bowl — So a $300 bowl that is exclusively used for stabilizing whipped egg whites…that’s probably one of those unjustified expenses, right?
No one will ever be you.
33 DIY Gift Ideas — Great list! My goal in life is to be super crafty like this.
HIIT Like a Girl Workout — I felt like death after this one!
(Oh, and then there’s also round two!)

What I’ve Bookmarked This Week:

Pumpkin S’mores Pie — No, this isn’t déjà vu. Last week I also posted about a pumpkin s’mores tart. This one, it’s totally different. I had to save them both!
Carrot & Red Lentil Soup – My love for creamy cream-less soups knows no bounds.
Buttermilk Pancake Ice Cream — Umm, I may or may not have had pancake parties with my friends in high school, and they may or may not have involved ice cream. So now I may or may not definitely need to make this, like, now.
Almond Joy Pie — Whhaaaaaattttttt! How does this exist??
Pumpkin Tiramisu — These pies, they’re killing me this week! (/ ok, this is not really pie, but it’s shaped like one, and it’s killing me, so it counts.)
Salted Caramel Apple PieMore pie!
Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse — With Greek yogurt, my love! I will try putting Greek yogurt in basically anything.
