I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
There are numerous iconic dishes in the Bluegrass State, from burgoo and hot browns to bourbon balls and fried chicken. But none are quite as delicious as transparent pie. Made from a batter of butter, sugar, cream, and vanilla that’s poured into a simple pie crust, transparent pie truly is the sum of its parts. It’s darn delicious and absolutely legendary, with Magee’s Bakery in Maysville becoming quite famous for this iconic Kentucky dish.
Have you tried the transparent pie from this legendary bakery before? Did you know about this iconic pie shop in Maysville, Kentucky? If you can’t visit the original Magee’s in Maysville, there’s also a Lexington location… and the bakery even ships their pies, too!
