Bake 52: Week 16

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!
My parents grew awesome rhubarb, so every summer Mom baked rhubarb pie, rhubarb jam, rhubarb syrup, and us kids would run around with stalks of rhubarb to gnaw on (my pucker reflexes just turned on).  Needless to say, I love rhubarb pie.  I love strawberry rhubarb pie.  And now I know I love just strawberry pie because that's what I ended up baking.  I baked with the lovely Michelle this week and we couldn't find any rhubarb, so strawberry it was.  I definitely missed that sweet sour taste the rhubarb adds (not to mention the nostalgia), but I must say, a plain strawberry pie is mighty good too!  Valerie hosted this week and you can get the recipe at her blog HERE.  There are great tips on how to make a super yummy crust and beautiful pie edges (something I've never been able to do until now!).  And check out Michelle's BLOG to see our gorgeous pie pictures!  Then go make some pie!
