Popular Kitchen Series - Homemade PizzaHobby Farm Home Presents: Pot Pies
Faced with these varied opinions on the definition of "pot pie," it was difficult to decide which recipes to include in this book. Should they all include meat and vegetables? What about crust? Are pot pies main courses to be served only at lunch or dinner, or do people eat them at other times of the day? Can pot pies taste sweet—or just savory? This magabook (magazine-book) includes nontraditional versions as well as standard pot-pie recipes. One thing these recipes have in common besides their deliciousness: They all feature some sort of crust. Where to get a copy>>

Today, meat preserving is a technique used by cooking and hunting enthusiasts to create great-tasting meat products, often for less money and with fewer preservatives than store-bought. Imagine: Instead of grabbing a shrink-wrapped package of bacon at the grocery store, you can make your own smoky strips from just pork belly and some spices.

Why do we love baking pies and cakes so much? One core reason: It’s fun.

Remember to always keep this "fun factor” of baking. Don’t get obsessed with a perfect end result. Rather, relish the baking process, and embrace a sprinkle of serendipity along the way.
