I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

AMERICAN FLAG PIE

AMERICAN FLAG PIE

My husband loves pie, so any time I have an excuse to make a pie, he loves it. Not many things are more American than a pie...except maybe a pie that looks like the American flag... :) It is a great patriotic dessert for the fourth of July.

For the "stripes" part of the pie I mixed a can of cherry pie filling and about a cup of fresh sliced strawberries and pitted cherries. For the "stars" portion of the pie, I mixed a can of blueberry pie filling and about a 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries. To make sure that the blueberries didn't mix with the cherries, I sectioned off the pie crust with some tinfoil. That allowed me to get clean lines to show the different parts of the American flag. I removed the tinfoil and then added some stars and stripes with the leftover pie crust. Then baked it at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes then turned the oven down to 375 degrees and continued baking it for 45 minutes or until the crust was golden brown.
