Pie Fest

Oh people, you are going to love me after this week's post. Our guest chef Tara is gracing us with not one, but eight, yes EIGHT pie recipes. I mean, we have a Thanksgiving holiday to prepare for here. If you don't think your family needs eight pies for Thanksgiving, have a pie fest with your friends the next night and assign them each a pie from this post. You will not regret it. Well, you might, but not because it wasn't real real good.

Now let me tell you about Tara. We were roommates in college. Ah college, wasn't that fun? Yes, well, one of those crazy college nights Tara made Razzelberry Pie for a Pie Bake Off. And that's when I fell in love with her. She tore that Bake Off up. I mean, no other pie even compared to my girl Tara. And today, ladies and gentlemen, she is here to share that blessed recipe with you.

And just for kicks I will now mention a few other little known facts about TaraMitch and myself:
  1. I first discovered text messaging with her and Brandi. We thought it was the greatest thing ever. Then we got our bills. 10 cents a text. Ouch.
  2. She is from Danville. I am a Northern Californian magnet. Those people love me there. And they find me wherever I move. Can I get a witness Mary, Justin, Elizabeth, and the girl I met at bookclub last month?
  3. She is a co-creator (again with Brandi and myself) of acoustic night. All you BYU students out there having "acoustic night" at your house? You owe it all to us. No, really.
Okay, back to food. Here is a list of the many pies you have to chose from:

You're so cute you have your own cooking blog. Our good friend Damaris has a cooking blog. She has built it up so much that she has a following and companies contact her and send her free things to try out and blog about. You should check hers out. I think it "from the corners of my or something or just go to ours and find the link. Dude Abram is so funny. He might be funnier than you.

Man oh man are you missed back here :)

So I have a request per se...looking for an amazing Lemon Meringue Pie :) I grew up loving my grandma's, but I'm wanting something new and lemony. Let me know if you have anything.

I love lemon meringue too, and I've only ever made the one on the back of the lemon pudding box. Imagine how i would love a real one. Any readers out there with suggestions?

Maybe I'll have to mention it in a post.
