Spied at the Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza. Motherpie?
I was browsing the local cookbooks at the Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza earlier when I came across this. It is "Applehood and Motherpie. Handpicked Recipes from Upstate New York." Care of the Junior League of Rochester. I came a hare's breath away from buying this for obvious reasons, but I didn't feel like shelling out 20 bucks and the recipes were kind of run of the mill, not really regional in nature. But I did leave the store snickering about the term "Motherpie." What exactly is in a Motherpie? Do I really want to know? It sounds dirty and my childish mind delights in these sorts of things.
