Pot Pies

Welcome to our Pot Pie Page.  Pot pies, a great American classic, comfort food at it’s best.  When I think of pot pies I envision a big old white farm-house on Sunday afternoon, a delicious pot pie baking in the oven.  We don’t live in a big ole farm-house, but we do love a good pot pie filled with chicken and veggies in a nice creamy gravy.  That’s why we think Pot Pies should have their own page.

As we explore recipes we’ve found great twists on the classic chicken pot pie, as we try them we’ll share them with you here.  As always this page is a work in progress check back from time to time to see what we’ve added.
