And now for something completely different.

In some circles I have a reputation for baking pies. I’m even told I’m quite good at it. Yet it occurred to me early this week that I have not baked a pie in a good long while. Months even. And that’s just wrong.

So after baking and giving away (most of) the cherry cordial version of Sharon Tyler Herbst’s double fudge brownies early this week (knitting guild folks made quick work of them, thank goodness), I rummaged around in the freezer, found a bag of berries we picked last August and baked a blueberry pie.

It tastes like summer.


About pattiblaine

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.
