key lime, for St Patrick's day

Ellie Enos

There is a Girls' Day (and a Boys' Day). The girls set out their doll collection about 2 weeks before the official day of March 3rd. They don't get pie, but hishi mochi. They celebrate this in Hawaii and other areas with Japanese cultural ties.

Have you seen Waitress? My daughter loves that movie and now it's a musical on Broadway. The central character makes pies!


I don't care what kind of pie you make as long as you save me a PIEce.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Key Lime! Perfect idea, Margaret! Have you ever made one?

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Ellie--so fascinated to hear this! we used to gripe to our mm that there was no Children's day--and she's always tell us: Children's day is EVERY day. That's why we need a mothers day.

And I will look for waitress!

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Come and get it, Mark! xo


I love pie but don't make it often. My husband usually gets lemon meringue pie for his birthday. We both love my apple pie I make with at least 6 different kinds of apples and Splenda.

I want to see a photo of the pie you make, Hank. I like to bake cakes (and eat them). My husband is a pie person, however, and I buy (not bake) him an apple pie for his birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Slicing all those apples discourages me from baking him a pie.

Pumpkin is my own favorite, but it's more the season for berries or perhaps a berry/cheesecake combo. I gave up on making crusts, though, and either buy them or do the graham cracker kind.
A student created a slogan I loved: Drop pies, not bombs. I have a mental image of pies with little parachutes.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Lemon meringue is my husband's favorite, too, Jody! He calls it Lemon MERINGUE pie, I call it Lemon Meringue PIE.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Oh, Laura, it's not so many apples. ANd read this book--you will WANT to do it!

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Mary, Kate would say store bought crusts are FINE if it gets you to make a pie!

Deb Romano

There are few pies that I enjoy, although I did go through a stage a few years ago when I made chocolate pecan pies. (It was the chocolate that sold me on it!) I'm more of a cookie person when it comes to baking.


My pie-making is limited to pumpkin, in the recipe I used as inspiration for a story in Death Dines In, an anthology co-edited by Frere Fatal Dean James. But perhaps I need to broaden my horizons.
