Hi Nerdie Foodies! It’s been a while since there has been a new Foodie post. This post is a special one, not only is Pi Day just a little over a week away, but it is also the 10th Anniversary of the Adrienne Shelly Foundation. Writer, director, and co-star Adrienne Shelly made this movie called Waitress (2007) which also starred Keri Russell, Nathan Fillion, Cheryl Hines, Jeremy Sisto, and Andy Griffith.
Now onto the pies! There are about 18 pies that Jenna creates in the movie. As much as I would love to feature all 18 pies (I might turn this into a Waitress Nerdie Foodie series in the future), we are just going to feature a few of them now. Let’s go!
Mermaid Marshmallow Pie
Host Red Reyna from Let’s Eat Fiction, shares with us her recipe for this colourful pie recipe that is inspired from the movie. This one is for all the marshmallow lovers out there. Plus, the best part? The only baking you have to do is the crust! Check out the video below!
Lonely Chicago Pie
One YouTuber, Leah K, shows us how to make the Lonely Chicago pie. A pie that our main lady Jenna makes with her doctor, Dr. Jim Pomatter. Check out the video below!
I Can’t Have No Affair Because It’s Wrong and I Don’t Want Earl to Kill Me Pie
This one is a very simple pie.
“Vanilla custard with banana. Hold the banana.”
– Jenna (Waitress)
Baby Screaming Its Head Off in the Middle of the Night and Ruining My Life Pie
Raising a child is no simple matter. It is a feat in itself. Even more so when you’re a single parent. Thanks to Michelle, we have another recipe here that might help in getting you through the night. By the way, it’s a cheesecake based pie. Check out the recipe here!
Earl Murders Me Because I’m Having an Affair Pie
Jenna does not have a perfect marriage nor a perfect relationship with her husband. It’s very clear in all these pies that she creates and the names that go with each pie. But she is doing her best to get her life together for herself and her unborn child. This pie is a fruity doozy. Check out Falling in Love Pie’s version here!
Strawberry Chocolate Oasis Pie
Speaking of fruit, the final pie of this post will take you to heaven! YouTuber StephStance shares with us their recipe for Strawberry Chocolate Oasis pie. You could definitely opt out of the bourbon if you wish to make this kid-friendly. Check out the video below!
