Mmm. Pie.

Friday, May 8th, 2009

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.
