Ten Pies for Mikey
Posted by EmilyMonday August 22, 2011
It has been just over two weeks since Jennie lost her husband suddenly. Like I said in this post, it is incredible to see the food blogging community come together to honor the Perillo family and bake #apieformikey. We like to do “Best of the Web” posts here, when we see a lot of bloggers posting about the same food, or holiday, or theme, et cetera. I couldn’t possibly come up with a “Best of” A Pie for Mikey list, because each post is personal and great on its own, for it is a tribute to Michael and Jennie. But here are ten pies that especially stood out to me. These just go to show you that Jennie’s story affected bloggers all over the world, that it brought people together to share their own adaptations of peanut butter pie, and that it touched everyone.

Finally, if you haven’t seen this video by White on Rice Couple yet, I highly suggest taking a minute to do so now. And have your tissues ready.
