Summer pie season has finally descended upon us, so you know what that means…everywhere you turn us food bloggers are throwing fruit-filled pie at your face. Literally, we’re throwing pie at your face and we’re not even thinking twice about it. For my contribution I wanted to give you a pie with a twist though, because I think you need this one in your life immediately and because you know me, I can’t just give you something that is simple and basic. I just can’t. So Strawberry Piña Colada Pie is this year’s summer pie of choice because nothing screams summer more than lounging by the pool with a piña colada in hand. Now you can lounge by the pool with a slice of strawberry piña colada pie instead. Pie trumps a cocktail any day of the week.
The second bit of good news, aside from this awesome pie, is that I’m hosting a GIVEAWAY for you all! I’m giving away a signed copy of my cookbook The Slider Effect to one lucky winner! Who will it be? Will it be you? Who will it be? I have no idea actually. It’s already been one full week since my book’s official release, can you believe it? In honor of my first cookbook being published, and as a big thank you to every one of you for continuing to follow along and supporting me and this blog, I’m giving away a copy of the book (along with a special gift) each week in July. After all, none of this would be possible if it weren’t for your support! I never forget that. So if you’re good with math, that’s 4 chances to win my book and a special something extra. I won’t tell you all the prizes just yet, because I do like surprises. This week’s prize however, is small but mighty. One of my favorite things about the book are the various appetizer picks I used throughout the different sliders. I had a lot of fun finding different party picks to hold the sliders in place. It became a game for me to find new and exciting toothpicks. So this week’s prize is a copy of the book, and a big bundle of slider picks. A HUGE bundle of picks. Like, all my favorite ones from the book.
To enter, leave a comment below letting me know how you celebrated Independence Day yesterday?! As always, my mamma will be picking the winner at random. It’s one of her greatest pleasures in life, what can I say? You should know us well by now, and know that we love lots of details. Tell us what you did, how your day was, what did you eat, what did you cook, etc. I love reading all of your comments. If you live outside of the US or didn’t celebrate Independence Day, then just tell me what you did yesterday. Let’s keep things fair, only one entry per person, and if you win, you can’t enter the following weeks. Sorry but I want everyone to have a fair chance. You have until Friday night to enter! Good luck, I’m rooting for you!
