June's Winner and A New Theme for July!

Wow, wasn't June a great theme?? I think we all had a lot of fun with that one! Thanks again Suz and Sara, for picking a real winner! And now on to the good stuff- the winner of the "Summery Drinks" pie challenge is...............ERIN of Milk & Honey (again!)! Her Tequila-Lime Tart knocked everybody's socks off and she won by a landslide- go girl! You all know the drill; since Erin won, she gets to choose our theme for July, so without further ado, here it is:

"Summer Fruit Pies"- For July, how about we highlight summer fruits...berries, cherries, peaches, etc. All the goodies that are season now that we can enjoy before their gone again.


So there you have it- Summer Fruits. Oh boy, oh boy, this is gonna be another good one! Thanks, Erin! Ok, everybody- start thinking about creating those beautiful, fruity pies. As always, you have until July 13th to submit your creation via email (pieswiththat at gmail dot com). Tell all your friends and spread the word- let's try to make July the biggest Round Up yet!

Everybody enjoy your 4th of July holiday!

June's "Summery Drinks" Round-Up

**EDIT** Kelsey of Apple A Day missed the Round Up, and we promised we'd go ahead and post her pie anyway! So here it is, Kelsey's Frozen Cherry Limeade Pie!

Woo hoo! Summertime is finally here and we couldn't think of a better theme than "Summery Drinks" for the month of June! Chosen by Suz of You Can't Eat What? and Sara of Cupcake Muffin, our "Summery Drinks" pies were supposed to be inspired by our favorite drink to enjoy by the pool, or maybe even a tropical beach somewhere. What a fun theme- I think everybody really had a great time with this one (honestly, how could you not?! Pies inspired by cool drinks, sunshine and beaches?!....ahhh, just lovely!)!

As always, only those who submitted pies this month are eligible to vote- everybody pick your TWO (that's right, two!) favorite pies and leave your votes in the 'Comments' section of this post. We'll announce the winner and the new theme for July in the next few days, so check back! Without further ado, here's our fantastic, summery round up- get those beach umbrellas and sunscreen handy!
