While I’m in the blogging mood, I thought I would point to my friend Brian’s blog, where he discusses our afternoon making pie.  I consider Brian a master when it comes to the art of pie crust and asked him to share his secrets after that fairly crappy afternoon Martin threatened to never let me make pie crust again.

We took some pictures, I learned some stuff and hopefully I will retain it all for when I go back to California!  I will report back on my next pie crust attempt, but let it be known that Monday, December 20 was a fun afternoon of getting flour all over me, fussing with Brian over who is the Alpha Chef (he won that fight – THAT TIME) and generally making a mess of and then tidying up Amy’s kitchen.
