Strawberry Pie + 4th of July Links

strawberry pie

Happy 4th of July weekend!

What are your plans for the weekend?  I currently have zero plans except for working a couple days during the weekend.  I’m hoping to change my lack of plans situation, though!  I’m up for anything this weekend so bring it on!

Before I share this fabulous strawberry pie with you, I have to tell you a little behind the scenes story…

Our main porch is on the front of our house, which is awesome if we want to do all of our porch stuff (grilling, entertaining, eating, etc.) in full view of the road & our neighbors.  It’s also where I drag my photography stuff out & take food pics for the blog.  The pictures look great on my blog, but behind the camera, it looks kind of ridiculous.  I realized last night that I’m the weird neighbor with the tripod, pie & chair set up on my porch!

Ok…now it’s about the pie!

I found this recipe for strawberry pie on Pinterest a while ago & finally decided to make it.  It didn’t disappoint!  I love it so much that I made another one 2 days later & I’m going to make another one this weekend.  Can’t stop…won’t stop!

Also, I totally cheated making this.  I found a pie crust that was prebaked and just used that!  It was awesome because crimping the edges of a pie crust is totally not my thing, which I found out when I made my first pie.  It was delicious, but ugly!

Side note:  only I could make such a yummy pie look dreadful in photographs!

Head on over to Cincy Shopper for the recipe!
