The pie. That sumptuous common delicacy filled with a sweet or savory filling baked in a crust can be presented in a million ways. Generally made in a round, slope-sided pan and cut into wedges for serving, the pie can be served as a snack, a dessert, or a meal in itself. As long as you have a filling and you have a crust, you can make a pie. But how do you make one that’s as delectable as you see in the pictures?

That’s what this pie cookbook is all about. There is a pie fit for every meal and can be prepared using just about any type of filling. You don’t need to be an expert cook or baker. But most of the time, you will need an oven especially if you wish to make your own dough. If no oven is available, that shouldn’t stop you from making your own delicious version of a pie.

When the holiday season comes, it’s pie time again! But you cannot just stick to a few favorites. Explore the different flavors and textures of fillings and crusts. Personalize it and you will be unforgettable to those who will taste the pies you serve. Give pies as gifts or simply serve them on your dinner table. It’s always a winning dish to offer.

Now that she is a mother, it is more important than ever to make sure that healthy food is available to the next generation. She hopes to become a household name in cookbooks for her delicious recipes, and healthy outlook.Martha is now living in California with her high school sweetheart, and now husband, John, as well as their infant daughter Isabel, and two dogs; Daisy and Sandy.
