in these dire economic times we're getting inspiration from one of the most famous ministers in the world. i'm talking about joel osteen. he's coming to washington in april of 2012. he'll be at national stadium and i had a chance to talk to him yesterday. >> there is enough already pushing us down with just life in general. we have the economy, there is always something. when i speak and able to minister people, i want to lift them up and make them feel better and let them know there
are brighter days up ahead and that's what our ministry is about. >> by the way, joel has a new book, it's called every day a friday. and i've been looking through it. he said how to be happier 7 days a week. every day a friday by joel osteen. now go to my website at jchayward.com and you can see the entire interview. i have another book to show you right now. it's from paula shoyer, the kosher baker. she's my special guest today. and let me just tell you, these pies, the fragrance is just filling the studio. this is a beautiful book that she has. 160 dairy-free recipes so i want to promote her book. and what are you doing today? >> well one of the reasons i'm here is to talk about my appearance this thursday on a
food network competition show. >> that's right. >> it's called sweet jenus. and every day i go in the pitchen and bake for people with special diets and this is gluten free, this is sugar-free and this is dairy-free. and i thought being on a competition show where they give me challenging ingredients would be fun. but you have to move quickly in the kitchen, which i do. so today i'm going to show you the fastest pie you can ever make. >> and where can people see this? >> on the food network on thursday night at 10:00 p.m. and it's on for about an hour. >> okay. and they will see you. that must have been fun? >> it was fun. it was hard. i took risks i didn't need to. i made something on that show that i have never made before in my life until i was on that set. >> you are kidding? what was it? >> i can't tell you. back to the pie. so this is a frozen pie crust. i have a lot of homemade pry custs in my book, but sometimes you need to make it easy.
so here i'm adding lemon juice, a little bit of salt, cinnamon, sugar. >> that's cut up? >> raspberry, blueberry, and you can use whatever fruit you want and make the pie your own. and you just mix the ingredients together and mix this up until you don't see that much of the flour. you can use corn starch as well and in the summer i use peaches and plums. and then dump this into the pie crust. that's probably enough. >> you didn't bake your crust at all? >> no, this is right out of the freezer. and then all i'm going to do is smooth this out and take cookie- cutters and cut out circles and make a design on top. you can use different sizes, you've used stars or flowers or whatever you like and when you bake it, it looks like that. >> doesn't this look lovey. you can get the full recipe by
