Win a copy of Ms. American Pie!

To celebrate National Pi Day, which was 2 days ago, and, well, “just because,” we’re giving away THREE copies of my cookbook, “Ms. American Pie.” And it’s ridiculously easy to win. Just write your name in the comment field below. Cut off time for entering is Friday, March 20 at Noon PT (3PM ET). Check back on Friday at 2PM PT/5PM ET and we’ll have the 3 winners posted.

If you already have my cookbook (or my memoir, “Making Piece,”) I’d love it if you would post a review on Amazon or Goodreads or, hey, wherever you like. Your comments are appreciated.

A peek inside the book…and when you get the book you
get a peek inside the American Gothic House
The book is full of easy recipes. Really easy.
Even I can make them!


World’s easiest pie to make: Coconut Custard.
Recipe is on page 125 of my cookbook.

The world needs more pie. Make enough for everyone.

If pie makes people happy, then pie cookbooks
make people REALLY happy. 
Blueberry crumble baby. Okay, so maybe a little brown,
but pie is not about perfection!

More happy people — made happier by making their own pie.

Of course the best part, besides sharing your homemade pie,
is getting to enjoy a slice yourself!

Remember, leave your name in the comment field below and check back here on Friday to see if you won. Winners will be picked in a drawing and posted here on the blog. If you won, you’ll need to send me your full name and mailing address. And if you don’t win, well, you can always buy the cookbook. I won’t mind. Better yet, you’ll be glad you did.

  1. My mother-in-law loaned me a copy of your Making Piece book to read before Easter. I grew up in Iowa and know what a healing, warm place it is. Thank you for sharing your story that shows all of us that, although we don't know how we will move past tough times, we find a way. Especially by giving to others. Sara McCormack Hoffman

  2. We love pie and enjoyed your memoir, "Making Piece" — received our copy via Barnes & Noble. Had a Strawberry & Danish Glaze pie for "Pi Day". Be well and do good work!

  3. Margaret Wood…Woody and I bought your book for the La Crosse Public Library at the November Holiday Gala for the honor of being the first to check it out! Time for my own copy? Hope so!

  4. " Making Piece " resonated with my grief experience, finding pie making consoling. I used several of your recipes from " Ms American Pie " to make pies for the National Pie Day celebration at River Lights Bookstore in Dubuque.I would share additional books.

  5. Meg powell. I cannot put your memoir down. I need more pie in my world. I moved from a pie loving family to a culture of cake eaters and i cant even buy pie at a bakery. My bucket list includes learning to make good pie!

  6. Jean Powell Luadzers here from Missouri. Your Ms American Pie book is still my Go-To pie book. If I won a copy I would have one to share with my first pie teacher, I know he would love to have your book in his collection if I so chose to part with it to him.
