Tis the Season!

After seeing Mindy's blog, I had a real hankering for some blueberries of my own! I guess I could go with Briggy, but this year I skipped out on all my berry picking. Next year will certainly be more enjoyable for him.... Blueberry pie always brings up a favorite story amoung my family members--On one of my parents first dates, my mom (who is a very good cook) wanted to make a real nice home cooked meal for my 'city-slicker' dad. She made a turkey...I think it just about exploded, and for dessert, a blueberry pie---except for the fact that she completely destroyed it. poor mom. poor dad...he grinned and beared it...eating the whole meal with a smile :)
so even though im sure with a good recipe, i'd be able to master a proper blueberry pie, im afraid like mother like daughter, i might have a disaster on my ive actually never made a "real" blueberry pie. looking through my recipes, I came across this interesting take on a pie, that i'm sure is a lot easier....and probably just as tasty! anyway, just though i'd share!
