Celebrate 2011 :: Pie Day


National Pie day was perfect for a group celebration. Seven of us get together every other month for a dinner party, so we turned this month's dinner into a pie party! They were sports when I made them pose with their yummy pies. We had three savory pies and four sweet pies. Perfect for dinner and dessert! We were all stuffed by the end of the night!

1. ME: Barefoot Contessa's Apple Crisp (I turned it into a pie) / 2. LAUREN (also the host): Mocha Fudge Pie (e-mail me for the recipe) / 3. LAURA: Mini Blueberry Pies (e-mail me for the recipe) / 4. TOBE: Modified version of this Ricotta Spinach Pie (added cherry tomatoes and zucchini)  / 5. MORGAN: Martha Stewart Chicken and Kale Hand Pies with a Flaky Pie Dough recipe and add cheddar / 6. AMY: Modified version of this Mini Chicken Pot Pies with Bacon recipe (Amy substituted sour cream for sour cream for the creme fraiche, added mushrooms, and used the broth from the roasted chicken as part of the stock) / 7. CARRIE: Traditional Cherry Pie


I think it's obvious I need a better camera for this type of stuff, suggestions?

They were all so good, but I loved the cheddar crust on the Chicken & Kale Pies, and I loved all of the dessert pies...I have a sweet tooth!

Why isn't Pie Day on March 14th?

Maybe March 14 should be Math-Lovers Day!

Adorable! (And delicious, no doubt!)

As for cameras, I got a Canon T1i a year ago that I still need to learn how to make the most of, but even on auto its pics are much improved. Also upgraded to a bounce-flash, which makes indoor pics so much nicer!

I second Janette: a bounce flash will make your indoor pictures look much snazzier. I got a $200 Nikon flash. It works great when pointed up at white ceilings.

And man, do these pies look DELICIOUS. I'm drooling. I think I inadvertently celebrated National Pie Day. My Oma gave me an apple pie the day after you wrote this post. I ate it for four glorious days.
