Book Review- Sweetie-licious Pies: Eat Pie, Love Life

I have shared my recipe for my Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie before:
And I do love pies. I think pies are something that really epitomize hospitality and just old fashioned baking.
I am a member of Goodreads which is a great site for those of you that love books. There is an opportunity for giveaways for books that are newly released that you can enter, and then to share reviews with others, etc. It's a nifty little place. Recently I won a book about Pies!!
Sweetie-licious Pies: Eat Pie, Love Life Pies! A whole cookbook about Pies. This is a great cookbook that also talks about the people the recipes came from, stories about when the pie was served etc. There are great pictures and recipes of all kinds of pies as well as vintage photos from the authors family and friends. I read it through like a novel, not like a cookbook.

I like how it starts out with three options for crusts, ( including an original crust and a graham cracker crust, then also talks about different types of toppings like crumble. You can mix and match crusts and toppings and really have a lot of options for what your family likes. I'm looking forward to trying some of these recipes out this Fall and Holiday season with my family. I just wanted to share this super fun book, you can probably find it on Amazon, and I think it would make a great gift or even a coffee table type book.

Happy Homesteading Ya'll
(and Happy Pie making)!
