PIEOGRAPHY and Pie Making Contest!

Last year, I submitted savory pie this recipe and essay to a contest on the Where Women Cook blog, and was fortunate enough to have my submission chosen be included for publication in PIEOGRAPHY - 42 Fabulous Recipes Inspired by 39 Extraordinary Women.

I am pleased to announce, it's finally here!  A 176 page hardcover book in an 8x8 inch format full of gorgeous recipes, photos and musings - mouthwatering inspiration for pie lovers everywhere.

What a fun adventure it was to be included in this process.  I wasn't sure what to expect, as I'd never had anything published in an actual *book* before, just magazines.

It took a good amount of time, but the wait was worth it.  Jo Packham and her team really did a great job of putting this collection of recipes and stories together.  Opening the package carefully with my mail carrier (she's the best) was so exciting - I could hardly believe it when I saw my name and words on the glossy pages.

My husband took a photo of me, and I was so proud of him too because it looked great in the layout.  A truly rewarding experience for the both of us.  The recipe photo turned out fantastic as well - looks super yummy to say the least!

If you are in the Tacoma area, join me at King's Books on Thursday, March 14th at 7 PM for a Pi(e) Day Celebration and Pie Making Contest!  Bake and bring your best pie for our judges to sample - winner will receive a copy of PIEOGRAPHY and a big fat ribbon!

It's going to be so much fun!  I can't wait to see what you folks bake, so GET BAKING!!!

There will also be copies for sale at the event, or if you can't wait, you can find this book for sale at King's Books now, or online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Powell's.

Thanks for sharing in my excitement!
