Can someone please tell me how it is already spring!?! When did that happen! I feel like I just woke up one day and it was warm and sunny and the end of March.  I am not complaining though, can’t argue with sunshine!

Despite all the gorgeous weather we’ve been having in Austin, seems like between work and the recent SXSW festival, I have barely had time to enjoy it. In between errands and meetings I always try to sneak away for 5 or 10 minutes to walk my walk dog and catch some rays. All that vitamin D sure does put some more pep in my step!

Also, I would like to ask, when did I become my mother and talk about how quickly time flies and how I love taking walks? For real though, it so weird how people tell you you’ll grow up but you never really believe it… until one day, you’re like “oh wait, I sound exactly like my parents!” Seriously. It is a bit of a weird feeling when that happens. Please tell me I am not the only almost 30-something experiencing these types of feelings? Haha, at least it makes for a good laugh!

As I continue on my pie and tart making adventure this year, I always stumble over whether to get super creative or go more classic like my last steak & ale pie. I decided for classic again for today’s recipe, I figure learning the basics is the first step in becoming an expert!

Besides, all that sunshine makes for some very fine strawberries and I figure it is best to just let them do their thing in this pie with minimal invention. Plus, I totally latticed (is that a word?) the crust. Yes, lattice! Do it! It was way easier than I thought!

Most people go no-bake with strawberry pie, but really, give this baked strawberry pie a try. It’s absolutely amazing!
