    My first pie!

    I've never made a pie before. Today I made a key lime pie, and I think I did an OK job for my first time. I hope the filling thickens up because it wasn't very thick when I poured it in, even though I added like a teaspoon of corn starch because I didn't think it was thick enough. I won't know until tomorrow. I think I made the meringue too stiff, because I couldn't make those "cowlicks" on the pie. I think I over cooked it too... but for my FIRST pie I think I did OK. I'm used to cakes. Martha Stewart's "Easy" crust recipe is anything but. I tried SO hard, but in the end it ended up ruined and looked like an undercooked biscuit, so I sold out and used a graham cracker crust. What culinary shame. I'm not sure what's bigger, my pie or my mess. I've got a mountain of tiny key lime peelings, zest, flower everywhere, and a mountain of bowls and pots as you can see in my sink.




    I also tried to make peanut butter fudge. Twice. They're both crumbly, except one is too moist and the other is too dry and it's grainy. I'm not good with boiling sugar. Paula Dean's version made with velveta was gross.... I don't recommend it.

    cooking is the best. Pies are really fun to make too-especially when your really bad at them like me! It's always a suprise, which isnt always a good thing...but hey. It's fun! I looks really good for your first time!

    (for those of you who are bug people: doesnt it kinda look like a mantis ootheca? haha it does to me! no offense intended!)

    one thing i have found is some ppl are good at cooking and some are good at baking but i generally dont find someone really good at both.....my dad and i are very good at cooking meals(except the part on getting everything to get done at the same time) however we arent very good at baking.......my mom on the other hand isnt as good at making meals from scratch but is excellent at baking cakes, pies, rolls, bread ect....i can create a meal from scratch using just an idea in my head(though a specific dish created from scratch takes a few tries to perfect) but i cant make my favorite banana bread even with my moms recipe.....so i just drop my over ripe bananas at her house and pick up a loaf of banana bread the next day ...

    keep practicing if yah really want to do it.....you'll get the hang of it, very few are naturals at either cooking or baking and practice is required.....you want a really good pie horror story? my grandmother made the most beautiful apple pie....actually looked good enough to be on the cover of a magazine......only issue, she accidentally grabbed salt instead of sugar.......as good as it looked you couldnt force it down your throat........
