Feb 22 2011
Who could have thought that a common dish would have its own celebration and not only for a day, but the whole month? Well, this is possible in February, when the Americans celebrate National Pie Month. The event is also called National Cake Month, but do not mistake it with National Dessert Month, that is in October or with National Fruitcake Day, that takes place on December, 27th. Pie recipes can be found in all sorts of magazines, TV shows and on the Internet. One of the most “reliable to be tasty” source for this dessert is National Pie Council’s recipe index. However, not all pies are sweet. For instance, Chicken Pot Pie or Meat Pie are eaten as a main course. So, forget about diets this month and let’s celebrate together the National Pie Month!
