There, I admitted it. It might have something to do with currently reading the City Baker’s Guide to Country Living. There is a LOT of delicious pie baking talk in that book, and I love every single crumbly bit of it! Or, of course, it might also have to do with these unusual circumstances we’re living through, and being home a whole lot more. Therefore, more time to bake pie! And, obviously, eat pie. 🙂
Whatever my inspiration (or obssession! ha!) might stem from, today is the day of the homemade pie. I found some awesome new pie gadgets, beautiful pie dishes to display your homemade lovelies, and other pie related goodies that were too cute to ignore. Enjoy, and then – dig in!!
