We’re speeding down the tracks towards Thanksgiving and the holiday season. Which means you’ll probably be hosting a dinner for friends and family at some point, or tasked with bringing a “dish to pass” for a potluck or two.
I always end up in charge of desserts, and yes, I plan it that way because I know I can pick up a pie at the store and be good to go. What could be easier?! And who doesn’t love pie?! I’m like most busy working parents, where there just isn’t a lot of time for, well, anything. So I appreciate the pie option, because you know what? I would rather spend what little time I have savoring all those precious, sweet moments that truly go by in the blink of an eye.
Marie Callender’s is my go-to brand for pies. They’re reliable, available in most major grocery stores nationwide, and there’s never any question that the pies will be crowd-pleasingly tasty with the highest quality ingredients, signature special touches and a reason to celebrate – during the holidays and every day.
My favorite Marie Callender’s pies right now are:
- Chocolate Satin Pie: Rich Chocolate filling, Made-from-Scratch Crust, Topped with Real Chocolate Curls.
- Coconut Crème Pie: Creamy Coconut Custard, Made-from-Scratch Crust, Hand Garnished with Real Toasted Coconut.
- Dutch Apple Pie: 100 percent Fresh Fuji Apples, Made-from-Scratch Crust, Brown Sugar Streusel, Baked to Perfection.
Just writing those makes me want a piece RIGHT NOW, and you know what? Why not? These amazing pies aren’t just for big dinners or special occasions. They’re perfect for celebrating all the big and small moments every day.

And remember, every day is a good day for pie! Here are three of my favorite pie-centric movies and TV shows:
1. Twin Peaks. I just started watching this surreal show and love it. It has a retro 1950s vibe and a classic American diner that serves as a town meeting place for Twin Peaks with, of course, cherry pie. “The best in the tri-counties,” in fact. Want some coffee to go with that, Agent Cooper?
2. Waitress. Here’s a whole movie about pies! Lovingly baked by Southern diner waitress Jenna (Keri Russell), who crafts each masterpiece in her expert, flour-dusted hands. And each pie has special meaning, related to whatever Jenna is feeling at the time she bakes it. How about a slice of “I Can’t Have No Affair Because It’s Wrong and I Don’t Want Earl to Kill Me” pie?
3. Labor Day. This romantic drama from director Jason Reitman features a lovely pie moment, in which the characters played by Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet and young Gattlin Griffith all contribute to the making of that night’s dessert – wonderful peach pie.

My favorite is The Help. (my friend who is here likes the pie scene in the movie Michael where Andie McDowell sings a song about pie) 🙂
I well remember all those pie scenes in Twin Peaks, but another famous TV pie episode is the one from Seinfeld, where Jerry can’t figure out why his date won’t share his pie. Funny.
I tweeted about your fun blog post and the Marie Callender’s giveaway:
Oh wow. I can only think of Life of Pi! Nothing to do with Pies, but a good movie nonetheless!

NCIS and Criminal Minds are my Pie-Centric but really any show would do I just love pie!

Yum!!! Ok, my movie might not make you say “yum” but my tv show….. also.. probably won’t!
Movie: Stand By Me – The part with the pie eating contest and all the … throwing up… is so memorable that it sticks out in my mind 🙂
TV Show: Supernatural – Dean is always stopping for a slice of pie 🙂
The Walking Dead, yup love eating some pie while watching zombies.
Stand By Me and the pie eating contest.
One of my favorite movies is Anne of Green Gables, and I know that they eat pie. Who doesn’t love a slice of pie?

I always think of pie when I watch Golden Girls. They were always eating pie or cheesecake at the kitchen table. It makes me hungry for dessert every time I watch it.
Steel Magnolias is my pie movie and 2 Broke Girls is my pie television show since they are always dealing with food as well as desserts primarily cupcakes but oh well!
Gotta go with Friends
I’d go with your number 3… labor day!
I don’t know any pie-centric movies other than the American Pie franchise. hahaha I did enjoy those movies though! hahaha
I tweeted here: https://twitter.com/MsTofuFairy/status/704381937004244996
My Pie-Centric Show has always been The Three Stooges. There isn’t one episode that doesn’t touch on a pie throwing somehow.
