Humble Pie. We can all use a slice now and then, but in our case a mouthful never tasted so good. A delicious cherry pie emerged from five hours of prep and cutting our mouthwatering, homemade crust. A last minute decision to create an inline finished out the type beautifully.
We took light inspiration from Christine Kawasaki-Chan’s Easy As and wanted to acknowledge her like mindedness, but we made this idea our own.
Many thanks to Joseph Alessio for hand modeling and Claire Coullon for taste testing.
How did this begin?!
Asked by cabi3
This site began as my response to a series of very low creative circumstances. I lost my only client retainer and as a result was struggling financially, physiologically, and emotionally during the Christmas holiday. My husband and I decided we could not afford to celebrate that year and began talking about how to push through this hardship to a better life.
In this video, I explain my discovery of my niche interest and how I began to discover greatness in myself. The reality is that all of us possess genius inside ourselves- we must simply be brave enough to let it out.

Joga Bonito. Nylon shoelaces.I won’t attempt to overload our tumblr with this particular image as it’s non-food related, but as lifelong players we wanted to pay our respects to the World Cup. Good luck to the US and other players of the Beautiful Game this month!

Spaghetting giffy with it on this two hour progression from lively piece to dried pasta. See the finals and learn the process on our site.
Spaghet about it- this is the most elegant application of pasta I’ve made all year. Utilizing fettuccine, I fashioned a copperplate script by using the heat and starch of al dente noodles to create thick and thin line variations on my kitchen counter. A batch of angel hair was used for ornamentation, also while piping hot to make advantageous use of the starch.
The process took three days, as the spaghetti would begin drying out immediately, leaving a pasta disasta in its wake. Some of the preliminary attempts can be found on Instagram, but the delicious final script twirled to perfection on the sauce colored surface. Celebrating my Italian heritage with grandma’s very best- spaghet it?
We’re up to our elbows in macaroni, techincally fettuccini, but it’s all a pasta disasta to us.
When life gives you lemons, use the zest for client work and slice the rest for a personal project. Duh.
