We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Pie Squared: Irresistibly Easy Sweet and Savory Slab Pies by Cathy Barrow, today on its publication day. The author is on a whirlwind tour and her extensive schedule can be found on our calendar.

Need to feed a crowd or, in my case, a 14 year old boy? Pie Squared is the answer. Savory dinner and sweet dessert pies fill this book which shares a total of 121 recipes. Cathy's invaluable tips and expertise with plenty of gorgeous photographs make this book a baker's dream. You will be the star of the potluck or family gathering when you arrive with a Favorite turkey chili Frito slab pie with a cornbread crust for the gang (or again, in my case, I will be the best mom ever). Andrew likes to say when I've made something he really likes "Mom, you were chosen as star baker this week."

I particularly love that Cathy has gone an extra step in providing as much information as possible for her recipes. For example which crusts work for savory, sweet or both and which pie recipes work with that particular crust. Throughout the pages, Cathy offers variations on recipes, swap ideas and techniques including "how to set up a double boiler" and more. 

Pies don't need to be perfect they just need to be delicious and in this case - you can have your perfectly beautiful pie and eat it, too. This book is one of our upcoming Eat Your Book Cookbook Club titles.

Our    takes you inside this book and features the following
