Blueberry pie is a sweet pie that can be filled with fresh or frozen blueberries, blueberry filling, or even blueberry custard. It is one of the more popular pie flavors in the United States. Blueberry pies are also quite common at summer picnics and July 4th celebrations when blueberries are in season.

Did you know that Maine produces more blueberries than any other state? In fact, Maine produces 25% of all low bush blueberries in North America. That makes this New England state the largest producer of blueberries in the world!

Head to your favorite bakery or make your own tasty Blue Ribbon Blueberry Pie to enjoy on National Blueberry Pie Day!

Holiday Strata

April 21, 2011

This is a favorite family recipe of the Lisle Family. It is perfect for Easter or Christmas Morning, Mother’s Day, or any special Brunch.

Strata is a savory bread pudding, consisting of layers of bread, cheese, and other ingredients, topped with an egg and milk custard mixture that soaks into the bread. It’s a great dish for brunch because it requires an overnight stay in the refrigerator. Assemble it a day ahead of time, and the next morning all you need to do is bake it.

You’re sure to find something for all the woman on your list. (more…)
