Pies that Remind Me of Home on Foodie.com

I’m required as per FTC regulations to inform you that this is a sponsored opportunity with Foodie.com.

Some families celebrate with cakes or other desserts but my family is full of pie eaters.  We eat pies for birthdays, christmas, thanksgiving, in the summer, in the fall, or when ever we have a chance to get together!  Some of my favorite pies are Key Lime Pie and Pecan Pies among others.  I have a cousin who makes a superb fruit pie, and an aunt that makes an out of this world chess pie. Really in our family you just can’t go wrong with pies. What better time to celebrate our love for Pies than on Pie Day (March 14th)!!

So when I found that I could make a board of just pies over on Foodie.com I was ecstatic! There are so many wonderful recipes that I can’t wait to share with my family!  This collection I made was classic pies that remind me of home.  Most of these are pies we make or have made before, but they all give me warm feelings about family and the time we spend together!  I have a cousin that is getting married March 15th so I will be making one of these pies out of my collection for sure to celebrate with my family on the 14th for Pie Day!

I also have a couple favorite pies here on Cocktails with Mom!  Including homemade cherry hand pies which are always  a crowd favorite.

    Oh, this is an awesome collection!

  5. I have to say that as an English person, the variety of pies here is nothing like you have in the USA… However, my Granny’s apple pie was amazing. I made peach pies for the first time last year and I loved them so much. My husband is a keen Key Lime pie eater when we are in the states!

  6. Eliz Frank says:

    Those pies look scrumptious. I could jump right in and have a slice of each one… The Key Lime with Elderberry sounds divine.

  7. Dee says:

  28. The leftover turkey pot pie looks amazing. We have that a couple of times a year and it’s delicious.

  29. My mom didn’t make pie that often, just Thanksgiving and maybe one other holiday during the year. I love to make pie and my husband likes to devour pie! He likes fruit pies and I like almost any kind of pie.

  30. My favorite pies are Sweet Potato Pie and Chocolate Pecan pie. I learned how to make Sweet Potato Pies from my grandmother. The problem is I only know how to make them in groups of three!
