Yummy Monday: PIE

     Released this past October, PIE by Sarah Weeks will definitely keep you busy, baking in the kitchen and eating at the table (and reading!). The book includes a different, character-favorite pie recipe at the beginning of each chapter. The 14 recipes total were contributed from all over the nation. Now that's my kind of book. And there's a cat. Double points.
     Sarah Weeks begins her book with this dedication:
(Amazon link)
"To my faithful readers, because a book is like a pie -- the only thing more satisfying than cooking up the story is knowing that somebody might be out there eating it up with a spoon."
(From Goodreads)   
     From the award-winning author of SO B. IT, a story about family, friendship, and...pie!
     When Alice's Aunt Polly passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous pie-crust recipe. Or does she? In her will, Polly leaves the recipe to her extraordinarily surly cat Lardo . . . and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.
     Suddenly Alice is thrust into the center of a piestorm, with everyone in town trying to be the next pie-contest winner ... including Alice's mother and some of Alice's friends. The whole community is going pie-crazy . . . and it's up to Alice to discover the ingredients that really matter. Like family. And friendship. And enjoying what you do.


So, what do you think, oh Lovely Reader?
