A couple of weeks ago Karen and my big brother, Mike, welcomed baby #3 into their family. It’s a boy! My first nephew, and he’s adorable. We’re all in love with him!

Everyone knows that when someone has a baby, of course, you cook for them. So, this past Thursday night I took an entire dinner over to their house. I asked my three year old niece what kind of pie she would like for me to bring and she said blueberry, without any hesitation. She LOVES the color blue, she loves anything that is blue, and she loves blueberries. So, that’s exactly what I made. We ate it with vanilla ice cream, and it was so good. Great choice, Anna Kate!


Blueberry Pie

9 inch double pie crust
4 cups fresh blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tbs flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of salt
1 tsp lemon juice

Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry. In a mixing bowl, combine the blueberries, sugar, flour cinnamon and salt. Fill the pastry with the mixture. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of lemon juice and dot with 1 Tbs butter. Adjust the top crust and seal. Bake at 400 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
