    Preceded by her famously delicious pie pops, we introduce Andrea Smetona! This amazing woman is the owner/founder of Cakewalk Desserts and author of the new cookbook, Easy as Pie Pops. Andrea tops our list of dessert connoisseurs and we had the pleasure of featuring two of her decadent desserts in our 2013 Holiday Cookbook: Sugar and Spice. Whether you are craving savory or sweet, there's a recipe just for you. If you’re looking to be crowned dessert diva at your next holiday party, check out Andrea’s pie pop recipes - you’ll surely have all toques tipped after the first bite!

    We caught up with the lovely lady behind the pops, so read on to learn more about this baker extraordinaire.

    Tell us a little about your culinary background. Have you always loved to cook/bake? Did you go to school for it?
    My background is actually in Hospitality Interior Design if you can believe it, and I have a Bachelors from Texas Tech University in this specialty. My love of baking began when I was young as a helper to my mother in the kitchen. It continues to be a way my mom and I bond every week, even though we live 2500 miles apart. We call each other constantly to talk about new recipes we love, ways to re-invent old classics and our hilarious baking disaster stories. So, while I never had professional training in baking, I did have a wonderful teacher. I like to think that my degree in design and my passion for baking married one another, creating what is now my business, Cakewalk Desserts.

    We've heard that creating a book is a LONG process. How long did it take you to put Easy as Pie Pops together?
    The short answer to your first question is...YES! To elaborate slightly, I will just say the entire process took about a year, but it was totally worth it. I learned a lot and I'm sure there are things I would do differently the next go-round, but it will always be so very precious to me. Many of the recipes are family favorites, and it almost serves as a tribute to the woman in my life and a legacy for Cakewalk Desserts. Easy As Pie Pops released everywhere November 12th, and it's my mission this coming year to help people know about the book. This is why I am so grateful to Ruche for helping me spread the Pie Pop Cheer this holiday season! 

    Doesn't her book cover look delicious! We can't wait to make a few of these recipes.

    If you were to attend a holiday party, which recipe would you prepare from your book?
    I love bringing anything a little different, just to spice things up. You know that feeling when you walk into a party and someone else is wearing your dress? Its the same for me and desserts. LOL. So, I think I might be safe with my Honeyed Fig or Cranberry Walnut Pie Pops. Both are beautifully festive and unforgettable. 

    (See the recipe in our cookbook!)

    And of course, we have to ask, which Ruche dress would you wear to this party? Ok, this took me about 2 hours to decide on just ONE dress. This is always my dilemma when it comes to shopping at Ruche. However, I picked out the lovely Serendipitous Moment Embellished Dress. The color is a woodsy, deep hunter green with just the right touch of sparkle on the sleeve caps. It's perfect for the holiday party, but also great for just a night out with my hubby. I'm thinking I should buy it now before it's gone! 

    Now for a round of quick fire questions. Ready? Go!

    Cuddled up indoors or bundled up outdoors?
    Cuddled up indoors by the fireside, drinking Irish coffee, listening to Bing Crosby... watching the snowfall. 
    Holiday party attire: bold lipstick or bold jewelry?
    I tend to forget to reapply my lipstick, so bold jewelry all the way! It lasts all night. 
    Apple pie or cherry pie?
    Apple Pie! 
    Graham cracker crust or traditional pie crust?
    I like traditional pie crusts because they are more versatile, you can go sweet or savory with the filling.

    If you're itching to get your hands on one of her awesome recipes, you're in luck! In celebration of the release of her book and our holiday cookbook, we are giving one lucky Ruchette a chance to win a copy of, Easy as Pie Pops. (You can also find two of her recipes featured in our holiday cookbook!)
    Giveaway Details:
    1. The giveaway runs from November 20 to November 30, 2013.
    2. Enter the giveaway by commenting with a Ruche dress that you'd love to wear to a holiday party.
    3. One random winner will receive a copy of Easy as Pie Pops
    4. We will announce the winner on our blog November 30, 2013.

    If you adore Andrea as much as we do (or have an obsession with cake pops), visit her website, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or Twitter. You can also find more about the book here: Page Street Publishing, Better Court Studio, Amazon Pre-Order, Barnes and Noble Pre-order.


    UPDATE: Congratulations to Anne-Marie for winning Andrea's book, As Easy As Pie Pops! ♥ We will be contacting you shortly.

    To celebrate the arrival of the holiday season, we are having a wishlist giveaway! Making a holiday wishlist is not only the most fun thing to do on your coffee break, it simplifies things for all the friends and family who want to wrap something up and put it under the tree for you. And it means that when they’re watching you un-wrap the gift they have picked out, you won’t have to quickly scan the tissue paper for a gift receipt or fake a smile because it will be exactly what you wished for! Because no one wants to start the new year by standing in line at the mall with a bag full of gift returns. Whether you have your eye on a cute printed scarf, a sparkly statement necklace, or a cozy sweater, put it on your Ruche wishlist ... and you might just win a $250 shopping spree!

    Our wishlist giveaway is as simple as can be. Just sign up or log into your Ruche account and add items to your wishlist. Then share your wishlist with friends, family and us for the chance to win. The more people you send it to, the more times your name will be entered and the higher your chances will be.

    Meet Lilliana Vazquez, a style genius and talent behind the affordable fashion site, The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style. Every day, she scours the web for the best trends under $100 and teaches us how to "shop cheap but look chic". What's not to love?

    For those of you looking for expert styling and budgeting tips, you're in luck! We're giving you the chance to win a signed copy of Lillana's new book, The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style: Secrets to Shopping Cheap and Looking Chic. (We're also excited to announce that Ruche was mentioned in the book!)

    To enter, all you have to do it "like" Cheap Chicas on Facebook and leave a comment below to tell us which "budget friendly" piece from Ruche is your favorite.

    When we asked Lilliana how she keeps track of current trends, she said, "I'm addicted to the internet so I'm constantly scouring Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, my favorite fashion sites, and personal style blogs for trends and inspiration. I love Into The Gloss for beauty, Wendy's Lookbook for feminine style, and Atlantic-Pacific for a little west-coast flair!"
    With a plethora of "savvy budget fashion" in mind, Lillana combines styling, shopping and saving all into one fashionable package. Curious to see more? Take a peek inside the book! These pages below teach you about seasonal staples and how transition pieces for casual to dressy days. (And that's only 8 pages out of 352.)

    "I love every aspect of this industry -- the designers, photographers, makeup artists, and stylists... but most of all I love that the career I've chosen has give me the opportunity to share that knowledge and passion with such a large audience." -- Lilliana Vasquez
