Let's talk about pie, baby

apple pie
...let's talk about you, and me....
Now that I have that song stuck in your head, let's DO talk about pie. Have you ever heard pie lovers talk about pie? What kind they love the most? What kind they remember as kids? What kind their grandma taught them how to make? And if we're talking about pie makers, well, it just gets intense. And so it was just a day ago, and that dialogue spawned a Pie-Off. As in a dance-off. As in, Bring It On! My pie will kick your pie's ass. And people on twitter waxed poetic of their love of pies. And thus the Pie-Off was born.
Do you love pie? Do you love to make pie? Do you love to eat pie? Gawk at pie? Well, come Saturday, August, 30, 3pm, at a picnic site up at Washington Park, local pie hounds will join together. If you'd like to share pie links, stories, recipes or photos to the pie blog from afar and can't come in person, please e mail me at sassygardener at gmail. Keep up on the Pie-Off news, brush up on your favorite pie recipes, and plan to join. For the love of pies.

My son loves pie, but especially pumpkin pie. He asks for it every year for his birthday instead of cake. The secret to my recipe is cinnamon and lots of it. Easy on the nutmeg.

I love most pie, but not lemon meringue. Something about meringue makes me queasy. And no, pot pie should not be included. :)

What a great idea! And, oh, how I love pie!
I am a great judge of pie, if any judges are needed.
