    Blueberry Pie...

    "The only real stumbling block is fear of failure.
    In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude."
    ~ Julia Child

     

    Each time I try a new recipe, I imagine that it will come out perfectly as pictured. Reality rarely cooperates. Case in point. Blueberrry pie. The recipe at That Pioneer Woman simply called to me. I found this amazing site through Sophie at For Love + Idleness. Alterations to the original recipe included brown Turbinado sugar for white, and using 2/3 of the recommended butter. Still quite a bit of butter. I used the 2T optional flour so perhaps I needed more. Or perhaps the pie needed to sit or be chilled before serving. If the pie could better be described as blueberry soup or cobbler, I take responsiblity. The flavor, however, was beyond description. Rich, tart, lovely.

    I totally love the Pioneer Woman!!! I've also crashed and burned with a couple of recipes... although her "mystery rolls" and Marlboro man's fav. pasta are the bomb!!!!! (And her writings are hilarious!)

    I'm found with fresh blueberry pies, I always need way more flour than suggested. But, I've had plenty of pie's that looked just like yours, and it falls into the category of "who cares." I'm sure it tasted luscious!

    I'm drooling all over my keyboard looking at your luscious pie. It reminds me of the homemade blueberry pies that my daughter in ME bakes when we visit. I agree with Adrienne - "Who cares?" - especially when I sure it's uber delicious! Hugs, Terri xoxo

    PS - LOVE the quote - the same could be true of art! xoxo

    Terri, As it tastes good, I'm not concerned about achieving a bakery-store look... my birthday cakes are only now starting to be symmetrical and not lop-sided. You are absolutely right, the quote is a perfect way to think about art. Cooking is an art form, after all. ~ Tammy
