Mmm. Pie.

My son Matt (now 13) and I used to cook together quite a bit when he was in third and fourth grade. We had more time back in those days (even though we didn't think we did!), compared with our schedule now — baseball, swimming, piano, homework…

But I just received something in the mail that has inspired me to spend a Saturday afternoon in the kitchen with my kid. Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies, by Mollie Cox Bryan, made my mouth water.

Doesn't that cover photo just get to you, too? There goes the diet.

The book includes recipes for pies I've always wanted to try (and some that just sound like so much fun!): Shoofly Pie, Grasshopper Pie, Tar Heel Pie, and even Brown Sugar Pie From The Attic.

Matt and I will give one a try and we'll report back. Do you cook with your kids? I'd love to hear about how you spend time together in the kitchen.

    Glad to know you like the book, Kathy! Please let me know how it goes when you and Matt make a pie. I can’t think of a better compliment than your inspiration to get back in the kitchen with him. That’s awesome.
    Cheers,

    Hey Mollie! Wow, I was just going to email you to tell you about this post. Did you find it through a Google alert?
    LOVE the book. Another post to come soon, after we make a pie! Thanks again for the inspiration.

    Hey Kathy!
    Yes, I fond it through Google alert. I’m looking forward to following your kitchen adventures with your son. Have you decided on a pie?

    Not yet, unfortunately! Been consumed by homework and baseball playoffs for the past week. But we will!
