The World Needs More Pie

"Give a Piece a Chance." — Books. Blog. Pie Classes. And a Pinch of Activism.

Make Pies Not Babies

What do you give as a wedding present to a couple who already has it all, including a brand new house? A pie party! For my friends Andrew and Bennett (pictured to the right), I wrapped up a pie dish with a gift certificate attached. It took several months for the dust to settle after their August wedding, but in March we managed to assemble a group of 8 to roll dough, slice apples, and make a big mess in their new kitchen.

The happy couple surrounded by apple pie. Congratulations, Andrew and Bennett, on your marriage and your new pie-baking skills!
