Tuesday Tidbit: Pie Season's Comin'!


This Tip's for my Boston-area followers . . . others of you might find inspiration from Bon Appetit's "The Hot 10" list.

I don't know 'bout you, but I'm a pie girl.  I love it.  More than cake, even.  I like my homemade the best (if I do say so myself . . . don't knock lard 'til you've had my crust, I tell you!), but when I'm feeling lazy, I trust Petsi of Petsi Pies in Somerville to make it for me.  Truth be told, I find Petsi's crust to be a little on the bland side, and not quite flaky enough . . . but I'm being really picky here.  Her pies are freshly made, seasonally inspired and delicious.  No one will hate you for bringing one of these sweeties to a gathering, trust me.  Just be sure to call ahead for special flavors or to ensure that popular pies are still available for purchase . . . you know what they say about that early bird!
