slice of blueberry pie

Summertime Pie!


I love the heat. I love the beach. I love all the fresh fruits and vegetables that are available to me.

As a southern girl at heart, pie is an essential part of dessert. Pie in the summer when we have all this beautiful fruit is exceptional. I am lucky enough o have a blueberry bush in my backyard. Every year I wait until it starts giving me the sweetest berries. I am so close!

This year I couldn’t wait even one day longer to make my blueberry pie and tomorrow is National Blueberry Pie Day!

This recipe is fantastic and you can adapt it to really any summer fruit. Other fresh picked, what are some ways you like to enjoy summer fruit?

Blueberry Pie

Is there anything better than fresh pie? I love summer time when the fruits are abundant and lazy days make it easier to take the time to bake a pie.
