I just picked up Maira Kalman's new book And the Pursuit of Happiness. Maira muses on history, statesmen, freedom and...pie! Just look at the knock-me-out-beautiful back cover!

It's impossible to be angry and make a pie; the dough needs to be handled without fussiness or clumsiness, so you'd better pay attention.

Pie trumps cake.

Store-bought crusts are awful. It doesn't matter how much time is saved.

D makes the best pie crust ever, truly. Must come and try some.

I'd like that! He really gives himself over when he cooks. He cares, and it makes such a difference in the flavor of
the meal.
