Beth Howard is coming to Austin Bookpeople on 5/8 at 7pm

 Beth Howard, blogger, TV producer, Tenant of American Gothic House, owner of the Pitchfork Pie Stand, and writer, will be at Austin Bookpeople Tuesday, May 8 to promote her book Making Piece – a memoir of love, loss and pie. There will be a book signing and pie will be served!

Beth was kind enough to give a shout out to my blog when I first started baking pies and has been kind in giving guidance in the art of the crust. Of which, I still have my hit-and-miss moments.

I look forward to seeing you there!




In late November while walking through Barton Springs Mall in Austin, TX, I decided to make a pie a week for the next year. I don’t know why I decided this; I only know it sounded fun and I was going to roll with it. Now, I’ve never really liked to cook. But as a child I really liked to bake. Cakes, cookies, brownies and all manner of treats. I could eat dessert for dinner and be happy. And for a time, while in college, I did. Dairy Queen was my friend.

My cat Fuzzle seems to like this idea of mine:)
