The quarterly magazine features women who cook-whether professionally, as a hobby, as part of their blog, or just for fun-and the spaces in which they cook. My article has a focus on, what else, pies!
I share my Chocolate Chess Pie recipe, as well as a recipe for adorable Mixed Fruit Picnic Pies.
Most importantly, I share my love of pie baking and the story that spawned that love.
Rich Fleischman, and we have collaborated several times since. He is super passionate about both food and photography, and he never seems to tire of taking shots of me rolling pie dough (or maybe he is just too nice to say otherwise:) I do know that he never tires of sampling the finished products. He shot the lovely photos for this article, as well as the story for my friend Laurie Crowell of the Golden Fig.
We have a lot of fun when we are working, but are also fairly meticulous about getting all the shots we want.
The assembly of these little hand pies was well documented to make sure we got just the right angle and peek of fruit. If you think it is exhausting just baking a pie, try baking one (or many!) in slow motion in order to get just the right shot. (these are just a few....)

Rich was also adventurous enough to make the drive out to Southern Minnesota and hang out with most of my family at our cabin to shoot a feature for the newly released book Where Women Cook: CELEBRATE!
I hold company with a whole roster of amazingly talented women who have cooked for and documented a favorite celebration.
