Ah, sweet pie!

Recently I purchased Ms. American Pie Buttery Good Pie Recipes and Bold Tales from the American Gothic House.

Since then, I've been on a pie-baking binge! There are so many fantastic pie recipes in the book, and thus far I've made 10 of them.

 My coconut cream pie turned out to be a very pretty pie! And it was delicious, too!


 Last evening I went to a book signing/pie demonstration by the author, Beth M. Howard. Here Beth is talking with someone and looking over her book. Both of her books are on the book rack on the left.

 I showed Beth my handwritten list of her pie recipes that I've tried so far. She wrote a very sweet inscription in my book and encouraged me to keep on making pie.

What a fun event!

Beth is on FB as "The world needs more pie."  Her website is www.theworldneedsmorepie.com.

I encourage you to visit her site, and I think you'd like her books as well.

That looks like a very special evening. They have to be wonderful recipes if you have already made ten of them! Did you have a favorite?

Beth said...

My favorite is French Silk!!! Also, though, I'm quite fond of fruit pies warmed up with a scoop of ice cream.

What a nice post! You look lovely in that picture with her - you could be sisters. I made my first rhubarb pie in a long while the other day. I didn't turn out half bad! ;)

Have a great day, Beth.

I had a great crust recipe for years until Crisco changed their formulation, took out the trans fats. It is not a good crust anymore, tried Martha's butter crust, no one likes it as well. I may end up being a former pie baker!

This looks like a fantastic book...if you've made that many pies you must like it!! I love making pies, too, especially in the summer with berries. Do you have a favorite crust you use?

I'd love to go to a book signing one day...we have them around all the time but they are usually very popular authors and the lines are exceedingly long. And I have to say you looks so pretty in the photo!

Have a great evening, Beth!

I'll take a slice of pie over cake any day. Mmm, we can have pie and tea when you come to visit!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Beth, your pie looks so gorgeous, it could be a photo in a cookbook! I love pie, even more than cake or other dessert. Nice picture of you and the author.

I love pie but never seem to have the time to do one from scratch. Yours looks great.

Beth,

Your coconut cream pie looks amazing not to mention delicious! I wish my husband liked coconut, but he is not a big fan of it. I'm so happy you were able to meet Beth and get your book inscribed. Keep making those pies!

kitty said...

Hi Beth,
Your pie looks wonderful and coconut is a favorite of mine. What fun to meet the author and to see her demo. Cute pic of both of you named Beth!!

Donna said...

OK now I have to get another book...10 pies oh my goodness Beth...your family must be in heaven...I miss my grandma's crust...I have to have gluten free so I use a great pre-made crust.
