Lately I’ve really become quite the little baker. My husband is quite excited as he is my little taste tester and he loves sweets so it’s pretty much a win-win for him. I haven’t tried my hand at pies yet, wait.. I take that back.. writing this brought back the hilarious (yes I’m lol’ing) memory of me making my first “made from scratch” pie.. we’ll just say the pie didn’t survive and leave it at that.
Yes, it was that bad. I don’t know how I did it but I probably managed to make the worst pie in the history of pies, it was so glorious not even the dog would touch it! That was back in 2008 when I was pregnant with the twins. It’s been 5 years since that dramatic day and I think it’s time to revisit pie making again.

Since we are preparing for yet another snow storm here in Illinois maybe I will start practicing my pie making this weekend. If I can’t leave the house due to the ice and snow, might as well bake right?
Don’t forget to celebrate National Pie Day (March 14th) with a bite of your favorite pie! What’s your favorite pie? Mine is probably apple or cherry.
