Baking pies? Worth the effort?

Don't do it!
Today's blogpost is very, very brief: if you're a student, you shouldn't be baking pies!  Go out and buy one, guilt-free.

Today, I made puff pastry from scratch, and used it in a proper home-baked chicken pie.  Which was, I might add, delicious.  But I spent a long time in the kitchen, and it was devoured in 5 minutes.  I could have bought a ready-made one in the supermarket.  It would probably have been cheaper, too.

So that's my advice to any student getting over-ambitious in the kitchen.  Stop, think, shop.  You can bake proper pies when you've got more time!
