A Coffee Date with Mud Pie

January 31, 2018

Time for a Coffee Date

We took a break from the work day to go on a coffee date with one of our Mud Pie gals! We fell in love with the way she layered our winter styles, so of course we had to snap a few pics. Whether you’re looking for something comfortable and stylish to wear to work, a coffee date with your bestie, or driving around town to run a few errands during the day, Mud Pie pieces make for the perfect go-to outfits. Plus, to stay warm, we are ALL about the layering this Winter. Shop our entire Fashion collection to mix and match fun and on trend closet staples and layer pieces.

National Pie Day with Mud Pie!

January 23, 2018

Happy National Pie Day, gals!

Here at Mud Pie, we give into every excuse to celebrate anything and everything that has to do with pie, because pie fixes everything, right? Did you know that January 23rd is National Pie Day?

We are absolutely drooling over this Oreo Home Made Pie we put together. YUM!

National Pie Day

National Pie Day

National Pie Day

Ingredients & Recipe

For the pie crust:

25 Oreo Cookies

5 tablespoons unsalted melted butter

——

  1. Finely crush your cookies. I like to use a food processor for this step, but you can also place the cookies in a plastic bag and roll the sealed bag with a rolling pin. If you’re using a rolling pin, seal the bag but leave about an inch open for air to escape. You’ll have to put some muscle in it to get a fine crush. The crust sticks together best when the cookies are crushed finely.

NOTE: You do NOT need to remove the filling from the Oreo.

2. Stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together with a fork. Press crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of our Circa Pie Plate. Chill until ready to fill.

3. For a no-bake pie: chill the crust about 30 minutes before filling, then fill/chill as directed in the recipe.

Recipe from: Crazy for Crust 

For the filling:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups crushed Oreo cookies

Additional Oreos and whipped cream for garnish (optional)

——

1. In medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy {to avoid lumps make sure cream cheese is really soft or place in microwave for 20 seconds}.

2. Add in vanilla extract and granulated sugar. Beat until combined.

3. In separate bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

4. Using a rubber spatula, pour the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and gently mix together. Fold in the crushed Oreo cookies and combine.

5. Dump into the pie crust and smooth the top.

6. Refrigerate for 6 hours before serving.

7. Before serving, garnish with additional whipped cream and Oreos.

Recipe from: Together as a Family

Well we learned a few things baking a pie from scratch. One, we LOVE pie (but that doesn’t surprise us) and two, we aren’t professional pie stylists, but we are putting pie bakers on our resume because it was DELISH! It was so easy and fun using our Circa Pie Plate & Server Set. We also have a wide variety of mixing bowls and a vintage-inspired Circa Measuring Spoon Set. (ps – hand model is wearing our best-selling Baelyn Plaid Button Down)

Want something even sweeter? We are giving you FREE SHIPPING from now until midnight (1/23 at 11:59pm est)!

Mud Pie Playlist: New Year, New You Playlist

January 10, 2018

New Year, New You!

Happy New Year, babes! The holidays are over and 2018 is officially here! We are so excited for all that 2018 has in store for us, we can hardly contain ourselves. One of our Mud Pie babes got engaged, one got a new puppy and one moved into her brand new house! So we’d have to agree that these first few days of 2018 are going to be hard to top!

New Year New You Playlist  New Year New You Playlist  New Year New You Playlist

One MAJOR part of starting a new chapter every year, is setting New Year’s resolutions. A lot were set here in the office, including a lot on the list below. What were your New Year’s resolutions?

Top 10  New Year’s resolutions ( according to Statista)

1.  Eat healthier

2. Get more exercise

3. Save money

4. Focus on self-care

5. Read more

6. Make new friends

7. Learn a new skill

8. Get a (new) job

9. Take up a new hobby

10. I am not making any New Year’s resolution

New Year, new ways we can help!

Now we wish we could say we could help you with all of your resolutions this year. While we may not be able to help you with absolutely everything, we can help with a few!

1. Eat healthier – It’s easier to eat healthier when you have fun serving pieces to put the food in. Fill our Veggie Bowl Set to the top with your favorite healthy foods.

2. Get more exercise – This was definitely on our list (not going to lie, it is every year!) Even if it is taking a few minutes out of our lunch break to walk around the warehouse, we are determined to exercise more this year. While we can’t force you to go to the gym, we can motivate you with darling athletic wear you can buy right now on our sister site, Mud Pie Market

3. Save money – We can absolutely help here. While all of our Mud Pie products are already marked at great prices, we also have our sister site, Mud Pie Market, where you can find products you already like, at prices you will absolutely love.

4. Focus on self-care – There are a lot of angles to this one. Washing your face more, brushing your teeth more or even being in a happier state of mind. We have a great selection of Make Up Bags that you can store your make up or toiletries in. Need a mental pick me up or know someone going through a hard time? Our Pazitive Thoughts collection has a little something to brighten up everyone’s day.

5. Read more – Here are a list of best books to read in 2018. While we don’t sell books, we do sell the coziest blankets you can curl up under while reading a great book!

6. Make new friends – Easy, friend us on Facebook and Instagram, we may throw a like or two your way!

7. Learn a new skill – Like cooking! Don’t forget the essentials!

8. Get a (new) job – Come work with us! Check out our careers page & see if you are everything we’ve been searching for.

9. Take up a new hobby – Maybe you want to become an interior designer? Or learn how to monogram? Or even become a personal stylist (or just changing up your own wardrobe)

10. I am not making any New Year’s resolution – That’s okay too! Sometimes you have to set smaller goals in order to reach the bigger picture, or maybe you are just going into 2018 with an open mind! Celebrate every moment of 2018.

New Year, New Playlist!

Whether it is at the gym, working on your fitness goals, or cleaning around the house, we have created a brand new playlist to kick off 2018!

What are your New Year’s Resolutions in 2018?

January 4, 2018

Winter Wardrobe Must-Haves

Brr! It’s cold in here! This Winter weather is making us want to stay under the covers snuggled up in our pajamas. We don’t know about you, but we used to find ourselves standing in front of our Winter wardrobe, wondering what to wear that will keep us warm, but also stylish. That is not the case anymore! We have had so much fun styling Mud Pie‘s sweaters, scarves, bottoms, gloves and accessories this Winter, that we don’t mind braving the cold! Check out how our Mud Pie Gals Kelli and Rachel style Mud Pie as part of their Winter wardrobe:
