Shop Small Business Saturday

November 20, 2018

Saturday is Small Business Saturday!

At Mud Pie, everything is a celebration, including Small Business Saturday. Did you know that Mud Pie has over 16,000 retailers across the United States? From California to Texas to right down the street from our warehouse in Georgia! These businesses, big or small, are the heartbeat of our company and we rely on them just as much as they rely on us! Even with the new age of online shopping, there is nothing like walking into a store and getting the ‘in the moment’ experience that our retailers offer.

Why you should shop local this Saturday (and all other days of the week!):

1. Support local business in your area

2. Get the opportunity to touch and feel the item, or even try it on!

3. You can show love to your favorite stores and give love to your favorite bands at the same time

4. Get styling advice from the stylists in the store

5. Some of our retailers even offer gift wrapping (could it get any easier this holiday season?!)

Missed the last chance to shop online?

We have to admit, we can be last minute shoppers when it comes to the holiday season. But luckily we can run into one of our favorite local boutiques to grab those last few Mud Pie Christmas items on our list!

Check out some of our retailers:

Below are a photos from a few of our retailers. Show them some love + follow them on their social channels, too!

Celebrating Thanksgiving, Family Time & Friendsgiving with Mud Pie

November 9, 2018

Celebrating Thanksgiving with Mud Pie

Ready, set, THANKSGIVING! It’s the final countdown, celebrating Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away (I know, we are thinking the same thing, HOW is it already almost time for Thanksgiving!) We swear just yesterday we were celebrating the Fourth of July, right? But anyways, we are currently working on our touchdown dances because we CANNOT wait for all of the Thanksgiving festivities to begin. From watching football, to playing in the yard with family, to celebrating Friendsgiving with our besties, Thanksgiving season is here and we are ready to stuff our faces.

Sipping, Smiling, and STUFFED!

Yes, Thanksgiving is just one day, but here at Mud Pie, we like to celebrate all week long (and then some). We always enjoy time out and about with our little ones throwing the football, playing tag, or just enjoying the great outdoors. Thanksgiving day, we stay in our PJs and cook all day until family comes over. Then we find our stretchiest pants, throw on a flowy top and stuff our faces with delicious food. After hours of telling stories and laughing until our sides hurt, we gather around the living room and watch movies together.

Instead of having Friendsgiving before Thanksgiving, we have it after! It is the PERFECT way to get rid of the pounds and pounds of leftovers and revamp it into something even more delicious. (This also helps us save money, so we can spend it on Mud Pie goodies instead!)

Baking a Pie this Holiday Season with Mud Pie!

November 2, 2018

Baking in the kitchen with family this holiday season!

We love spending time with family here at Mud Pie and during the holiday season, we find ourselves spending a lot of time in the kitchen! Whether it is with your momma, your grandmother, your sister, brother, dad, uncle, cousin or mother-in-law, we have such a good time sharing stories and spending time whipping up our favorite traditional recipes! I bet you can’t guess what us Mud Pie gals like to bake for Thanksgiving. I’ll give you a second to think about it….

Baking a Pie This Holiday Season with Mud Pie Home

PIES!

Did you guess right? From pecan pie, to apple pie, to mud pies! We are drooling at our desks just thinking about it! Last weekend, we had so much fun hanging with a Mud Pie Momma and her little turkey. They shared laughs, stories and even a pecan fight.

Any way you slice it…

we’ll take a bite no matter what. Is your mouth drooling yet?! We used one of @thefeedfeeds & Love and Olive Oil’s pecan pie recipes and my oh my it was one of the most delicious pies we have ever had. Don’t forget our Pie Plate & Server Set for a perfect presentation of your mouthwatering pie.  We may or may not still be day dreaming about it…

Check out their recipe:

Ingredients

For Crust:

1 3/4 cups (7.75 ounces) White Lily® All-Purpose Flour

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

4 tablespoons cold unflavored vegetable shortening, cut into cubes

4-6 tablespoons ice water

1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 teaspoon water

For Filling:

1/2 cup pecan halves

1/2 cup chopped pecan pieces

8 ounces dark chocolate, chopped

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

4 large eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. To prepare crust, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add butter and shortening and mix with a pastry blender until butter is pretty evenly broken up into pea sized chunks. You can also use your hands to flatten out and break up and larger pieces of butter, as long as your hands are not too warm and will melt the butter.
  2. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of ice water on one fourth of the dough mixture; blend with a fork until that section is evenly moistened. Sprinkle another tablespoon on the next section, and so forth. Mixing the dough a section at at time will help the dough get evenly moistened without getting overmixed. Only use as much water as you need to bring the dough together in a shaggy dough. You may need more or less depending on your specific conditions, but I found about 5 tablespoons was just the right amount.
  3. Gather the dough together in a ball, pressing out any large cracks. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or more to allow the flour to fully absorb the water molecules.
  4. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface or pastry cloth. For a 9-inch pie pan, you want a round approximately 12 inches in diameter. Drape the dough over your rolling pin and gently transfer it to your pie tin, easing it into the bottom without stretching.
  5. Trim edges. If you will be crimping your dough, trim the edges about 1/2-inch out and then fold the edge under, then crimp as desired. For a cut out effect, trim the dough to the edge of the pie pan. Reroll the scraps and cut out shapes using a small cookie cutter. Brush the edge of the crust with an egg wash and then adhere the cut out shapes to it. When finished, brush the edges of the crust that will be exposed with an egg wash and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Refrigerate pie crust for at least 15 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  6. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spread pecans (both chopped and halves) in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant (watch them carefully as they will burn easily!) Set aside to cool.
  7. Gently melt chocolate and butter together in a double boiler or in the microwave, heating in 30 second intervals at 50% power, stirring after each interval. When chocolate is melted and smooth, remove from heat and whisk in sugars and salt until mixture forms a smooth paste. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Whisk in vanilla.
  8. Spread chopped pecans in a layer in the bottom of chilled pie crust. Pour filling over top. Arrange pecan halves on top of filling in a decorative pattern as desired.
  9. Place pie on a baking sheet (just in case) and bake at 325 degrees F for 55 to 65 minutes or until crust is golden and pie is puffed and slightly cracked around the edges, and the center is still just barely jiggly (which will result in a slightly gooey center). If you prefer a firmer pie (more like a fudgy brownie) you can bake the pie slightly longer.
  10. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely to room temperature, about 2 hours, before slicing and serving. After 2 hours if you are not serving it immediately, lightly cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Let come to room temperature prior to serving.

Get Spooky with Mud Pie Halloween 2018

September 6, 2018

From Spooky to Seasonal, Mud Pie Has it All!

At Mud Pie, we love all types of decor. But this fall, we are going crazy over door decor! We are heading out this weekend to put up our Halloween decorations (too soon? We don’t think so) and counting down the days until trick or treaters climb the steps and hit the doorbell!

Transition from Halloween to Fall

While we love putting up the Halloween decorations, we hate taking them down. This season, Mud Pie makes it easy to keep a lot of the door decor out through fall and until it is socially acceptable to put out our Christmas decor.

Tips to make an easy transition:

1. Switch our skeleton for a wreath and hanger

2. Swap your Halloween doormat for a more generic one

3.  Trade the Tin Luminary Bags for Rattan Pumpkins
