So far I have made: Raspberry pie = amazing. Cherry pie = amazing. Lemon mousse pies = amazing. Salted caramel chocolate tart = amazing. I will never cease to be amazed by the amazingness of the the Isa and Terry cookbooks.

Yet for some reason my apple pie seems to have been a bit of stuff up. There was just far too many apples, but I put them all in any way, so my pie looks like a mountain. I saw one or two other people post about this - I am wondering if "6 cups" of apples really equates to "3 pounds" like the recipe says. I weighed out 3 pounds (I'm metric minded, I have no idea what 3 pounds of apples would look like) and it was a heck of a lot more than 6 cups. I am hoping it is still edible.

It's all good, pie still turned out awesome, if not a little mountainous, but that's not such a bad thing. My faith is restored. mmmmm pie.

A mountainous apple pie sounds great! Plus you can sing Climb Every Mountain from the Sound Of Music while eating it. okay, maybe not.

When I made the cosmos apple pie, I bought a 3lb bag of apples but only used slightly more than 1/2 of it to get to the 6 cups. It was still quite mountainous when I put it the pie dish and I think it ended up being a good amount of apples. I made it with the vodka buttery double crust. It was probably the best thing I've ever made.

I made the raspberry pie today and can't say enough good things about it. So far this is my favorite from the ones I've made. And for some reason the crust tasted extra buttery and flakey tonight. Just all around delicious!

I have been dying to use this book for months and I finally got to make the strawberry rhubarb pie, it was just as amazing I hoped, which means it was incredible.

Now I want to make every single pie in the berry chapter.

I have a question about the rad whip, somehow I have gotten this far in life without a mixer. I'd rather not add one to my cramped kitchen. Do you think I can use my beater attachment for my immersion blender? Or a fork and a fast hand?

Wouldn't the beater attachment do the same job, just handheld instead of standing?

I don't know, it's just one big whisk, the mixer seems to mix things together more. But I'll probably just have to try it.

I think the beater attachment will work, just make sure you use a big bowl (the whisk attachment on my immersion blender likes to send things flying).

I made the Ginger Peach Pandowdy last night. My first pandowdy! It was a little different for me because I don't think I've ever had peaches baked in anything before. But it was very nice especially with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. At first it was a little weird smashing in a perfectly good crust, but then it was kind of fun.

Yeah, so the other day my husband asked me where I got the recipe for the apple berry pie. I told him it was in this book and asked why and he said, "Well, you know, just in case something happens to you." !!!! I guess that means he liked it.

I've been waiting for this season to try the strawberry rhubarb pie, but now that both things are available, I'm not sure. I've never eaten rhubarb before, what does it taste like? What consistency does it have? Shall I go for it?

Rhubarb is very tart and gets quite soft and a bit stringy when you cook it.

I peel most of the string off the rhubarb before I slice it up, peels just like a stalk of celery. So I've never noticed stringiness after it's baked.

Edit to add that strawberry-rhubarb pie is a favorite in our house and my hubby's all time pie favorite. I think the strawberries and rhubarb are a nice sweet-tart balance. I say go for it.

Gargh.... blueberries are pretty much my favouritest food in the whole world, but I promised myself I wouldn't make any of the blueberry recipes from this book until I got my weight down to my target weight... but I have put on kilos rather than losing them. Might have to break my promise to myself. I want blueberry pie and blueberry cheesecake and blueberry hand pies. I want them now, gosh darn it.

Just made the Very Berry Chocolate Chip Cobbler. Omg...so good! For some reason though I had to cook it 15 minutes extra because the biscuits were still doughy. I probably could have even cooked it more. I covered it w/ foil again for the last extra 10 minutes because I was afraid the tops of the biscuits would burn. I don't know what the problem was. Sometimes with my oven I have to add on a little extra time but this was excessive. I did use all frozen berries, maybe the coldness kept the biscuits from cooking right? I don't know, but it's delicious and that's what counts.

Rhubarb is one of the two things I absolutely refuse to eat (mushrooms being the other). However, I am in a major minority on this one, so you should try it, because MOST people like it. And if you don't, I have no doubt you could find a neighbour or friend who would snarf it down. ;-)

I made the Blueberry Thrill and Maple-Kissed Blueberry pies on Friday. They were a big hit, but I couldn't really taste much difference between the two. I'm guessing the maple extract would have helped (I didn't have any and used vanilla).

Absolutely! I have tried it this weekend it is a wonderful combination! The pie is so sweet you don't get the tart rhubarb flavour at all. A great introduction to rhubarb & a fabulous pie!

I made the strawberry rhubarb pie yesterday. It is delicious, but so soupy I had to serve it in bowls! Anybody know what might have caused this?
