Welcome to Pinot & Pie, and so much more!
The name Pinot & Pie is meant to capture my love for food, wine and sharing it with friends and family! That means the name will be given its broadest interpretation, so recipes and articles will not always incorporate wine or pie. But hopefully, they will all convey the warmth and fun found in creating food to share. So, please lift your fork, raise your glass, and join me on this journey!
JD Carothers is also the author of novels involving food, romance, and mysteries. Check those out on her author website.
