Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Note: This post was originally published exactly 5 years ago on July 5th, 2009 (on another note, I can’t believe I’ve been blogging about food for over 5 years!). I have since revised the recipe and instructions to make this pie even better and simpler than its original version. I hope you enjoy it, and happy baking!

Strawberry rhubarb pie is probably my all-time favorite pie. To me, there’s just something about the perfect combination of tart, spring rhubarb and sweet, summer strawberries that ushers in the first real days of summer. I’ve updated so many things about this recipe over the years that the new recipe bears little resemblance to the old one, and so I wanted to make sure to record the changes here – after all, this is where I keep all of my favorite recipes! Now that strawberry season is in full swing, I hope you’ll give this classic pie a try. And, enjoy the rest of your 4th of July weekend!

Sprinkle Cookies

Ah, summer. It has finally arrived here in upstate NY, at least according to the weather. The last couple weekends have been gorgeous – sunny and dry and perfect for backyard fire pits, early morning runs, and going out for ice cream with friends. We’ve also been firing up the grill frequently, and I’m excited to start seeing our favorite fruits and vegetables popping up at the farmers market in the coming weeks. For now though, I’ve been meaning to share these sprinkle cookies that I brought to a friend’s house on Memorial Day. They were soft and sweet, and made for the perfect snack to go along with our hot dogs, fruit salad, and other cookout fare. Enjoy and have a wonderful week!

Nutella Scones

Hello, friends.

Yes, I’m still here – although as you can see, the month of April got away from me a bit. Between Easter and starting a new job, things have been a bit hectic around here lately, but I’m hoping that I’ve finally begun to settle into a new routine. I haven’t been spending much time in the kitchen except to cook dinner a few nights a week, but this weekend I had an excuse to bake, and these Nutella scones have been on my list to make for a couple of months now. I brought them to a party, and everyone who tried them said that they were amazing – several people asked for the recipe as well, so I’d say they were a hit. I hope you love them, too. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
