NOTE: Kim first baked the Blueberry/Strawberry pie and then started all over again with peaches, so I could photograph the process, step by step. But the story really did begin here:

Okay, I’m sitting at the gallery working on the blog and greeting visitors when I get this email from Kim (see previous post A Very Mini Artist’s Colony in New Mexico): “Just removed what I think will be an excellent blueberry/strawberry pie from the oven. Won’t know until tried… but will restrain myself until you get home so you can get a photo.”

First of all, my friend has BAKED A PIE while I’m at work. Wow. And secondly, HE’S WAITING FOR ME TO COME HOME BEFORE HE CUTS INTO IT SO I CAN GET A PHOTO FOR THE BLOG. That’s definitely a double WOW there. Baking a pie on a stormy summer’s afternoon and restraining himself in support of the blog. I tell you what, I just don’t think it gets any better than that.

And if I arrive home to a piece missing I will have compassion… and you will understand, I know.

But remarkably, he held out and the pie was whole.

However, let’s start with his Peach Pie recipe since we have all the steps photographed, shall we?
