At Gastrokid we’ve been longtime fans of Cookie magazine (even before I started writing the ocassional non-food related story for them; and, full disclosure, they’re owned by the same company that publishes Bon Appétit, the exceptional magazine at which I’m an editor, and which, I might add, has an amazing site with a freakishly vast and reliable index of recipes on line, many quite family friendly). At Gastrokid, we’ve been liking Cookie’s food stories of late. Their website, Cookiemag.com, just posted a nice cold weather pie story that taps into that nesting impulse that families across the country will undoubtedly feel as the summer turns to fall, tho here in So Cal, we’re still waiting for summer to actually start. Elsewhere in the states and on the globe, crank up the stove, roll up your sleeves, and roll out some pie crust. The recipe list alone is a cozy sort of incantatory pie poem:
Ricotta Pizza Pie
Cupcake-Tin Pork Pies
We’re in. Check it out. And fathers, please don’t be put off by the tagline “mom style, kid culture.” There’s plenty of Dad-worthy stuff in there too (including a cool CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, story).
