july 5th has been declared pie day. did you know? the declaration was made by shauna, the gluten-free girl i refer to frequently, and a few of her friends. this was a twitter conversation that turned into an event. almost 1400 others are planning to post a pie on their blog or on facebook today. and this pie party is one party i can’t refuse.
this pie allows me to take advantage of the plentiful and lovely berries of the season, and takes care of a sweet craving. i made it for the first time in college… so it also transports me back to a tiny, cramped, dark apartment. the one with the toilet that spontaneously ran. the one with the walls that were too thin to keep out the thudding bass notes of the neighbors loud music. and the one with the window-less bedrooms which compelled us to name the place “the cave”. but, oh the fun we had…
i hope you all had a wonderful july 4th celebration…. full of family, friends, fireworks and pie.
this recipe is adapted from a fantastic cookbook, stop and smell the rosemary.
