I've got the itch to bake.


I don't know why now, in the middle of the summer, but it's true. Every day, I'm thinking about all of the delicious goodies I want to make. Friends came over last night, so it was good excuse! I made this strawberry pie. It looks a bit better than it actually was. I left out some of the sugar, and I think that was a mistake. I thought it was slightly bitter. The crumb topping, however, was good.

  1. Nolan got the itch to bake just the other day as well- that's very rare (about every 6 months) so I relished the moment! He made a wonderful strawberry rhubarb pie. Your pie looks great as well!!! Hope all is well. Katie

    Nolan got the itch to bake? And made a pie??? I can't even picture that in my head. Although I do remember him cooking full packages of frozen broccoli or making mashed taters with Creamy Italian out of frozen hash browns ! -Rod
