Comforting Homemade Pie

Posted by Michele Zagorski on 22nd Nov 2016

“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.” 

― David Marnet

I got up early and began baking, even before my almost-15 year old son was awake.  The sun was still low in the sky, streaming into my kitchen to rest on just-rolled dough.

Some say pie-making is becoming a lost art. 

It evokes the cozy, but inconvenient realm of wood burning stoves and laundry hung out to dry.

But, truly good things need not be lost.

“Pie is a symbol of something bigger than Mom and her way with desserts.” 

~ Pasquale Le Draqulec

"Cooking demands attention, patience, and above all, a respect for the gifts of the earth. It is a form of worship, a way of giving thanks."

~ Judith B. Jones

Jacek and I drank our morning coffee in the garden...taking delight in a warm, comforting slice of strawberry-rhubarb pie.

“Pie and Coffee is approximately the third best social interaction a man can hope to have with a woman.” 


"To me, pie is poetry that makes the world a better place.” 

― Ken Haedrich

(I used organic strawberries, and rhubarb from our garden with the recipe below. Keep the art of pie-making alive!  I'd love to see pictures of your pies...please share.)
