My first giveaway

7 Apr

This is the first day of what I hope will be a year long adventure in pie baking.  I’ve been baking for many years and wanted to find a way to express my gratitude to my friends, my family, the universe… and decided that I would bake a pie of one kind or another every day for a year.   Each day I will find someone to give a pie to.   That person could be a friend or neighbor who I know could use a pick-me-up… or maybe it will be someone that I don’t know yet… but who has come to my attention via this blog.

Today’s pie (my first of the year!) was in the form of a quiche – Quiche Lorraine – and it was delivered to a dear friend who I had not seen in quite a while.

I’ve long been a fan of the book/movie “Like Water for Chocolate”.  In this film the lead character is a wonderful cook who infuses the foods that she prepares with the emotions that she is feeling at the time.  I hope to infuse the pies that I make with love and good wishes to all that receive them.

Please join me on this journey.  There are many ways that you can become a part of this voyage.  Perhaps you will share your favorite pie recipes with me.  Maybe you will suggest a person who needs their day brightened.   Or maybe you will find a way to send me pie tins that you don’t need that I may use for this experiment.

Whatever way you choose to participate, I welcome you.   Thanks for your support!

    Dear Karen, this is Kristian from Denmark.
    I am very excited to read about your new project!!!
    Unfortunately – what with english not being my first language – I’m a little confused as to what defines a pie: Is it with fruit? Is it with a hard crust? Will it go with the Dukan diet?
    Looking forward to seeing many more pies, whatever a pie may be.

    Regards from Denmark,
