I haven’t seen eye to eye with Paula Deen on a lot of things, but I have to agree with her on this one. Life is just too short to not enjoy a good homemade slice of pie every now and then.
Classic strawberry rhubarb pie needs no fancy frills or embellishments. Just one bite and you’re a fan for life.
Spring is well under way, as evidenced by my monstrous rhubarb plants. They’ve been begging me for weeks to bake with them and I finally gave in. It was time for some of my favorite pie.
