Baking Recipe: Pink Lemonade Pie (Non-Baked) & Award

It seems that lately I've been obsessed over tarts or pies..While there is Pink Lemonade cakes or cupcakes and a pink lemonade drink, I thought it would be fun to add another dessert to the ever refreshing taste of pink lemonade. The best part is that it's in pink, which is subtle and pretty.

For recipe: Click on image + Zoom

Now, let me introduce you the newest member to the Pink Lemonade family [drum rolls..] It's my very own version of Jo's Pink Lemonade Pie. Instead of a drink, now you get to have it as a pie. The filling is ultra light, and melts in your mouth with hint of pink lemonade taste, and is topped with fresh whipped cream. Am I making you drool at this point? Perhaps you should feast on the pictures, and that could be good enough to make you want a slice? Lol..

Next, I am happy to share with you that Ann from Cooking Healthy For Me, who is constantly so kind with her compliments have awarded me the "Versatile Blogger" Award. Now that's really AWESOME! Never thought I can be versatile. However, I believe that I am. Part of the award is that I have to share with you 7 things that you might already know or may not know about me. But first, let me award 15 bloggers, who are my new foodie friends and maybe a couple who are pioneers in food blogging.. THANKS for constantly stopping by to buzz me here.

Seven Things About Me?

1. This is something close to my heart, apart from playing a make a belief chef, and an actual IT consultant during the day, I'm a trained classical concert pianist and sometimes play with my violin as well.
2. I'm a huge classical geek, and have idolised Beethoven since I was the age of 5 years old. And I'm a big fan of musicals, catchy beats and tunes.
3. Till this day, I'm a huge Disney person. Bring me to Disneyland and I'll be a kid all over again. I only love watching comedies, and maybe some thriller. Otherwise, I only prefer happy and ultra funny shows or sitcoms.
4. I'm obsessed with documentaries, and anything related to Sharks, Whales and Dolphins, that's where I'll be glued to the couch and TV.
5. I'm fussy and an extreme perfectionist. If something looks awful, or what I made didn't turn out the way I want it to be, I'll start all over. Quiting is not in my books, although there were times that I'm on the verge of just giving up. However, my pride kicks in. I always live on this motto, "When doing something, it must be always be 101% or if not better".
6. Home interior decorating is another area that I love. I used to move my furniture around in my own bedroom. So if you need a second honest opinion, or want another set of eyes, I'm in.
7. I love colours, so I suppose you can imagine that my wardrobe will have a rainbow of colours.

Till then.. and have a great week!!

  22. Congratulations on your ARE a versatile blogger! I LOVE your 7 facts! I didn't know you were a classical pianist!

    I took lessons as an adult and my piano - with great pain - told me that I needed to pursue other creative avenues!

  23. Stephanie: Oh.. yes yes yes .. Shark week is one of my favourite documentary. It's funny I can't take horror or gory movies. However, for shark attacks studies etc, I could actually stomach the facts.

    Lacy: If you do enjoy drinking pink lemonade, do give this a try. You will definitely enjoy it.

    Sandra: I'm so thrilled to know that you're a big big fan of my site as I am too a big fan of your site. Hehehe.. It means a lot to me knowing that though I don't write a lot, that my treats still inspire some of you.

  24. These look amazing! I am usually not a pie maker, fo the fast I mess it up every time, but no bake..I possibly could do this!

  25. Hi Gina dear! When I saw your comment, I nearly burst into tears. Missing you tons.. Thanks so much for stopping by my dear friend. You take care and have a wonderful week, days and months ahead. Hugs, Jo

  26. Lily: You always make me smile with your comments. Thanks for constantly stopping by to buzz me. Yeah.. I really love colours. Hahahah.. except bright neons, as I can't carry those oolours. Hahahaha..

    Tina: You certainly deserve the award. Looking at your bentos, and then the meals you come up with what Foodbuzz sents you.. they are all amazing!!!

    Tobias: I'm so happy that you popped by and discovered my blog. I am loving what's on your blog. Your photos are extremely beautiful. Wish I could learn to take more beautiful shots. Please feel free to buzz me anytime. It's always nice to be able to chat with a foodie friend.

    Cheers, Jo

  27. Chandra: Sounds awesome.. and hopefully you'll enjoy the pink lemonade pie as much as my family and friends did.

    Nic: I'm so sorry that you have to discover your award like that.. I just cannot believe my comment didn't go through. I'm coming by shortly. So happy you stopped by to check out on me.

    Ann: Hehehe.. not many people know that I'm a trained classical concert pianist. Only close friends and family members. I was auditioned before for an orchestra while I was slightly younger. However, didn't make the cut. Way to competitive in the pianist industry. Hehe.. however it was an experience in life I cherish till this day.

    Linny: As much I like to bake, I will still try to find ways to avoid baking if I can. Lets just say I would like to cheat off some heavy duty cleaning up as much possible. Please give this a try. It's really not that hard, but maybe just some patience and lots of heart ;).

    Have a great week everyone!!

    Cheers, Jo

  28. Your bakes are so sweet and pretty as usual, not a surprise to learn that you are a perfectionist! and the well deserved award! can wait to meet up with you

    Thanks for giving me my first award! how sweet of you to remember me.. now have to start cracking on what to write..

    Always falling asleep at orchestra performance should have hinted that I'm not musically inclined and finally surrendered my piano lessons at Grade 6.. much to my mama's dismay.. haha

  29. The pink lemonade tart is gorgeous! I love that shade of pink colour. It's beautiful! Great job!
