Win a Year of Pies!

Yup. You read that title right. You can win, A YEAR OF PIES. The catch is you need to supply the flour, fruit, and stove. English and me, we're supplying the recipes.

I first met Ashley English online. She emailed me back when her first homesteading books were coming out asking if I could review them, offer a comment? I did read them and was really impressed. Her four books (on chickens, canning, dairy and bees) were all amazing and I am darn proud to have my quote on the back of them. Over the years we have emailed, sent packages, and stayed in touch. I consider her a kindred spirit and friend. Her little one has a hand-knit Maude wool hat and if that doesn't make the English family special to me I don't know what does!

So when she asked if I wanted to offer a pie recipe for her new book, A Year of Pies, I was more than happy to do it. I shared a recipe for a quiche I made after raising my first pig. It has sausage, cheese, and bacon: a hearty meal for sure. It's in the book along with recipes by other bloggers and authors and the whole thing is beautifully photographed and the recipes are easy to follow and taste AMAZING!

I am giving away a copy on the blog today, so if you want to be entered to win, just leave a comment! Tell us your favorite type of pie. Mine is apple, warm with vanilla ice cream! I'll pick the winner Sept 1st along with the fiddle winner! Good Luck!

I love her books too! (have both the dairy and bee hardback) As far as my favorite type of pie, it depends on where I am. If I’m at home here in the northeast, give me a slice of warm apple pie with a strong cup of black, percolated coffee, preferably consumed outside in the crisp autumn air. If I’m visiting my family in the Georgia countryside, it’s always going to be homemade pecan pie (pronounced pee-kahn, not pee-can).

I never seem to be able to pick an absolute favorite pie... I'm a huge fan of my mom's apple pie warm with whipped topping or ice cream, lemon meringue is also a biggy, anything with lemon is a fave. But if I have some chocolate pudding pie with whipped topping... I am as happy as a cat with milk. Katlyn ktbug22288@yahoo.com

I love pies that use fruits that people don't normally cook... like Peach and Cherry!
Savory pies also have a special place in my heart - what's better than pie for dinner??

Hard to pick! Either cherry pie with vanilla soft serve or a freshly baked lemon meringue, before the meringue gets weepy.

Elderberry filling. All butter crust. Served with whipped mascarpone, no additional sugar but flavored with dark rum. It's more on the bitter spectrum of dessert.

My favourite pie? Thats a tough one. In the fall and winter, definitely pumpkin (with lots of whipped cream!) or apple (with vanilla ice cream). The best summertime pie for me would have to be blueberry. Not too sweet with a hint of lemon. I also just came across a recipe for buttermilk pie which intrigues me. Sigh, now I want pie. Thanks for the opportunity!

When I was in grad school, I used James McNair's pie cookbook to do pie night every Monday (mostly as a way to procrastinate). My friends loved it, and pretty soon I needed to make more than one pie to feed everyone. I love pie, but have to say that the red banana cream pie was my favorite of them all.
