Winners & the New Theme

Rebecca at Ezra Pound Cake and Mary at Alpineberry tied for their Rich & Famous Pies! Congrats ladies! Please get in touch with each other and come up with a theme to email us!

I have added a hosting schedule at the top of the sidebar to help clear up who is hosting when since we have had so many ties! If you notice I've gotten it wrong or missed anyone, please let me know!

Family Favorite Pie

This month's theme comes from
Natalie at Oven Love

Everyone's family has traditions, including favorite desserts. What's your family favorite? Is it your mom's brownies, your grandmother's banana pudding, your brother's famous chocolate chip cookies? Whatever that favorite dessert is, take it and turn it into a pie! If it already is a pie, make the recipe with your own special twist. If you're feeling extra energized and willing to divulge family secrets, include the original recipe!

Happy pie making everyone!! Please make, post and email your pie to us before May 7th to be in the roundup and voting! Thanks!

Rich & Famous Pie Roundup

Is it Spring already? Really? Well, you wouldn't know it in many areas of the world anyway! This month's theme is all about the Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous... which is what got me thinking about the season. Wouldn't it be nice to just jet off somewhere where the weather was what you were looking for? That would definitely be a huge perk of being one of the wealthy elite.

Another benefit? You get to have a fantastic group of creative bloggers design pies for you! And here they are!

Remember - you get three votes, but only if you were able to make a pie and participate this month! Voting will be open until the 10th at 3:14 pm (EST) (or everyone who participated votes - whichever comes first)!

PLEASE NOTE - to current tarts and those who want to join!!!!!!!!
We are having some issues with the blog format still and we are trying to work them out with Blogger. If you have emailed that your name still isn't on the blogroll, or you want to participate and haven't been added, please be patient. We are working on fixing the problem. Right now, we can't access the blogroll list at all so we're stuck. In the meantime all you have to do to join in, is follow the directions for when to post your pie and make it within the theme and send it to us. Thanks!!
