Winner & Theme for May!

Congratulations go out to Jacque for her beautiful Open-Faced Designer Apple Pie - our winner of the Family Favorties round!

Our next theme falls beautifully in line with last month's theme - we are such a nostalgic bunch and I LOVE it!

Ellen at Kittymama is our hostess this month and she is taking us all down that nostalgic path one more time with Childhood Memory Pies!

Childhood Memory Pie: Bake a pie or tart that is inspired by a favorite childhood memory. Maybe you spent a summer vacation in Maine so it's a blueberry pie; or your grandmother always baked lemon meringue, or you remember your first taste of apple pie ever. Tell us a little story that will help us walk down memory lane with you and relive some happy childhood memories!

Please email your pie or tart entries to pieswiththat[at]gmail[dot]com by June 7th along with a 300pix sized picture titled with the name of your blog. Can't wait to see the creativity and share some memories!

Family Favorites Roundup

One housekeeping note before we get to the roundup - the blogroll seems to finally have been fixed and we **think** we have it up to date. If you aren't on there and either should be, or want to be, please send us an email with your name and blog url and we will get you taken care of. Thank you again to everyone for being patient!

NOW... It is time for another Pie Roundup! This time we get to find out about everyone's family favorites!

Voting will be open to all those who made a pie this time around - please choose your three favorites from below and include their name and blog name. Voting will end on May 10th, or when everyone who participated below has made their vote, whichever comes first.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this month's fun challenge and big thanks to Natalie at Oven Love for a great theme!
