Additional Information

Beth M. Howard knows about pie. She made pies at California’s Malibu Kitchen for celebrities including Barbra Streisand (lemon meringue), Dick Van Dyke (strawberry rhubarb), and Steven Spielberg (coconut cream) before moving back home to rural Iowa. She now lives in the famous American Gothic House (the backdrop for Grant Wood’s famous painting) and runs the hugely popular Pitchfork Pie Stand.
With full-color photos throughout, Ms. American Pie features 80 of Beth’s coveted pie recipes and some of her own true tales to accompany them. With chapters like Pies to Heal, Pies to Seduce, and Pies to Win the Iowa State Fair, Beth will divulge her secret for making a killer crust without refrigerating the dough and will show you how to break every rule you’ve ever learned about making delicious, homemade pie.

I'm actually really intimidated by pie and not just because of the carbs and butter involved. Here's what happened: a long time ago I made a quiche with a homemade crust for a brunch party and someone else bought one and everyone ate the store-bought one and not the homemade one, because frankly, it was better. So I got my feelings hurt and got turned off pie.

THEN I found this cookbook and decided to try again, mainly because the author is really funny and just makes it seem like no big deal--and you know what, she's right. Who cares if you mess up a crust? Try again. She puts baking into this perspective that it's a process and a beautiful one, at that. My husband's pretty damn happy with my new philosophy. My kids too!
I read Beth Howard's first book (Making Piece, A Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie) and loved it. I have been inspired, educated and entertained by her love and knowledge of pie and its ability to bring people together, offer comfort and heal. I preordered Ms. American Pie and just finished reading it. My thoughts are: first, Beth's relatable, humor filled writing style is easy to read. I loved the stories she weaves into her narrative about each pie. Second the size of the book is a nice surprise, its bigger than a novel hardcover would be. Third the pictures are beautiful and the pies look mouth watering. The recipes are not intimidating, but doable. Now I will admit I haven't made any of them yet except the apple which is excellent. Beth includes not only her own pie recipes, but many award winners as well, and old recipes handed down through families, and I can't wait to try them. There are quite a variety of pie recipes, including fruit pies, cream pies, custard pies, savory pies,... Read more
How can we not love pie. How can we not love Beth Howard. All of Iowa is sad she could no longer keep up with her business in the American Gothic House but here we have her refreshing 'voice' along with her recipes and we can make our own pie. Plus not only is the content of this book fun and educational and enjoyable but it is simply a very beautiful book. I have owned it quite some time now and haven't yet been able to shelve it. I have, however, used many of the recipes. This past wesk it was Gooseberry pie.
