This Month...

It's official. I'm taking this month off. August has been so incredibly ridiculous that I've decided to just strike it from the record. So, in September, my posts will resume.

In the meantime, you should really check out my archives and reminisce about the good ol' days, when I was posting weekly. And check out this pic.

Custard Pie

I finally get to top off Pie Month! And what better than a Martha Stewart creation? Of course, my Custard Pie certainly isn't as pretty as hers. Check out her photo and the recipe here.

This isn't so much a pie as it is custard with pears. The hardest part of this recipe is slicing and arranging the pears. The rest of it consists of measuring a few things and mixing them all in a food processor. Tada! Done.

You wouldn't think you could mess up the pear-arranging...but I did. A lil bit. What I did was concentrate too many in the center so the dish wasn't as evenly baked as it should have been, and actually a little overbaked. But as far as the taste goes, you really can't mess that up. It was good--not too sweet--and I could definitely take this to a small get-together or potluck.
