Traditional Deep-Dish Double-Crust Blueberry Pie

As the summer progresses, we move from strawberries to blueberries, and so here is *another* pie. I know, you all are likely getting sick of my pie recipes, but I had to make a birthday treat-not-pie and my best friend is a blueberry-lover, so I came up with this one. Turns out, it might be my favorite pie to date — well, on looks at this point, because I haven’t eaten it yet. But it looks really nice!

Peach Red Currant Streusel Pie

Peaches were very sweet and the currants are a very nice balance. Yummy.

I’ve made galettes before, but if you look carefully, this one is intended to be a mulit-pointed star … aka fireworks. Easy to make, no pie pan necessary. And as always with blueberries, very juicy. Celebrate well!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Bars

‘Tis the season for both fresh local strawberries and rhubarb, so taking advantage of the local, I made my famous (and super easy) crumble bars. They are ready to go quickly and are definitely easier than making strawberry rhubarb *pie* as there you always have to solve the issue of berries being too juicy. Definitely recommend having a go at these!
