Technically For Your Pies Only turned a year old yesterday, but I was so in the depths of enjoying my last hours in Houston before traveling home that we’ll celebrate it today!
My very first post was on January 3rd…2011, the year of the pie. I started this adventure to give myself a creative outlet, a place to put my passion down in writing, something to give me purpose in my time of unemployment. My friends and family were the most incredible supporters, giving me advice or excitement when I needed it. Many of them asked if I was going to open a pie shop in 2011, but I knew I needed time to explore and experiment. And what an adventure!
Some 2011, first year highlights:
My very first 2011 top pies as determined by the readers:
#1-Bacon Mac N’ Four Cheese Pie…the product of two weeks without “real food” post wisdom teeth surgery.
#2-Caramel Chocolate Coconut Cookie Mind E’splosion Pie (aka Samoa Cookie Pie)…who needs Girl Scouts when you can make this pie?
#3-Full English Breakfast “Fry Up” Pie…I am just a little bit obsessed with England…just a little…
#4-Peanut Butter Pie…peanut allergies be damned!
#5-Beer & Bacon Pork Pie…every time I read this title, I hear a ‘Tim Taylor’ grunt after it.
Thank you all for your amazing support and I look forward to a lot more love, pie, and happiness in 2012!
