Guess what tomorrow is? Only the best of all days, in March at least. Okay, maybe the second best, behind the 17th…

If you are looking to celebrate here is a cute idea, complete with a recipe for what sounds like quite the blueberry pie:

Pie It Forward

Happy Pi day, in advance.

Apple, walnut and cheddar with hand-cut leaf design: a truly magical surprise pulled fresh from the oven amidst a Halloween party. Delicious beyond words.

Brilliant creation shared by my friend:

A Venn “Piagram”: simply stunning. I wonder how they attached the two pie tins?

Despite the beauty of this strawberry/blueberry combination I can’t help but imagine a Thanksgiving version a la pumpkin/pecan. This concept also definitely has to be recreated come March 14th (and yes, you know what day that is!).

Four and Twenty Blackbirds

Four and twenty: about double the amount of months I have been waiting to enter this (now legendary yet still unassuming) pie shop. And all of a sudden, entirely by accident in only the way that those magical life encounters seem to pass, there I was.

Peach and paprika pie, fresh schlag, cold brew.

While this wasn’t quite the level of just-baked-by-Mom glory, such a pie is probably the closest I will ever get away from my childhood kitchen. And with its wooden tables, open counters and an atmosphere inviting enough to allow for reading a book all afternoon on a Saturday, Four and Twenty Blackbirds did indeed become my adopted house for those few hours. If they only had a couch for post-pie naps… But then again, life must have some trials to afford such rewards, don’t you think?

Where Am I?
