Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Sweet, savory, fancy or rustic, the word evokes warmth, and love, with pillows of whipped cream or nuggets of savory jewels that melt into a buttery crust. For many of us, it has always been (and will always be) PIE. Which is why, if you know someone like me, you might grab this book and stuff it in their stocking OR face. Trust me, either would suffice. This book is serious. Go grab two. One for you and one for me." --Nicki Woo blog
