ABOUT THE PIE ADDICT
The Pie Addict is a Boise, Idaho-based, and family-owned, Pie Bakery & Catering shop. We not only make amazingly, delicious and FLAVORFUL homemade pies and pie crusts for order, but we can also provide these wonderful dishes to both corporate and personal events, gatherings and celebrations.
To say THE PIE ADDICT is proud and honored to call Boise home is a dramatic understatement. The city is a flourishing and vibrant oasis of friendly people and communities, great food and entertainment, and strong family-values, surrounded by rolling, trail-speckled hills and pristine wilderness. It has been both a wonderful place to raise a family and an incredible city to call home!
THE PIE BAKERS
When Mom lived in Texas, and made her regular visits to me and my siblings here in Boise, we would always harass her to bake us her coveted APPLE PIE! As I grew older, I became more and more interested in LEARNING how to make and bake this family dish myself, so I had her teach me. But I didn’t stop there. That baking urge and ‘fire in my belly’ now lit, I dove into pie baking full kilt, and tackled different pie recipes every week for years. I learned to make a variety of homemade crusts and tested recipes out on friends and associates at work – taking constructive feedback and honing my pie baking skills.
When Mom finally made the big move to Boise, we figured it was time to share our delicious pie dishes with everyone else!
After working in the corporate sector for over 40 years, I have finally decided to pursue my passion for baking. I spent many years in sales, customer service and operations and now it is time to pursue my dreams of owning my own business. My Mother (Dave’s Grandmother) was an accomplished baker in her own right without any professional training. I spent many years watching her create culinary delights for her family without even glancing at a recipe. Over the years I have re-created some of her baking arts for my family, my three children (David, Kerry, and Tracye) and my eight grandchildren. Married to George Edwards for over 25 years he has also been one of my culinary critics which has helped me improve my baking skills.
I hope to bring to you through Pie Addict the taste and flavors of these yummy desserts through our pies. Enjoy.
