Strawberry and Rhubarb Meringue Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie + a Giveaway

 

As I flip the thin plastic pages of a dusty and tattered photo album, my eyes hopping from one old photo to the next, I find myself searching for memories or glimpses into these captured moments of yesteryear. I hesitate on a snapshot for a few seconds before giving up and moving to the next. I scan the photo for some magic image that will take me back but mostly I find nothing. But soon I catch myself chuckling; the only memories I conjure up are of the stories my mom has shared with me time and time again. Each photo holds a story – too young for me to remember – but at a time when my mother seemed to assign every infantile moment, no matter how mundane or typical, a story and importance.

Books and books go by before I begin to wonder, did my mom keep a camera with her twenty-four seven? I hurry past the pages of a nude baby version of me frolicking about – was I that uninhibited or did my parents not know when to put the camera down? I notice a plethora of costumes per year – clearly I was being dressed up on more than just Halloween. I even think about the small moments taking place behind the camera; more than 50 shots of a birthday means at more than one hurried moment, my mother had to wind up a spent roll of film, take it out, load another roll of film, and prepare the camera in time to catch another goofy baby smile; she had to have spent a fortune on film and developing; she must have bored a photo technician to death every time she dropped off a few dozen rolls of me sitting in a high chair with chocolate cake smeared across my face.

 

But mostly I see my mother’s smile in every shot. The true love of a mother, someone who has decided to dedicate their life to me, shines through image after image. Never a moment of concern – except the one time I stood on the railing at the Grand Canyon – or sorrow apparent in a single photo.  I see a young lady new to the world of parenting, loving every single second of it.

How do you say thank you for this sincere gift of life? What can I ever do to repay such an awesome bestowal? I say, “I love you,” as much as I can. I let hugs linger and find any excuse to slip a, “thank you,” into the conversation. Sometimes I argue – when I think I know best. And on occasion I say things I regret. But as hard as it is I apologize and remind myself I have a lot to learn, especially from my own mom.

To this day, when my mother stares into my eyes, a mirror image of her own hazel eyes, I know she still sees her infant son. A quarter of a century may have passed since my birth but I will always be her baby and she will always be the first person I turn to in a time of need or a moment of celebration. And while she may not know it, every time I say, “thank you for the present,” or “thank you for handing me a plate,” I am saying “thank you for giving me life, for showing me how to live, and reminding me that I will never be alone.” For she is my mother, the most important person in the world, and the person to whom I dedicate nearly every act and accomplishment that have made my life mine.

If you don’t want a meringue topping, you can easily double the pie recipe and add a layer of dough on top of the pie before baking. If you choose to prepare it that way, you can use the pie bird (place it in the center of the pie on the bottom layer of crust before adding the filling; add the filling around it then the top piece of crust piercing a hole so the pie bird sticks out through the center – you want the dough to rest on the bird’s shoulders) to help remove steam from the pie so the crust will remain flaky and not soggy.

Now onto the exciting part!

I was given a Le Creuset Baker’s Set to test before the giveaway and I must admit I love it! This is my fifth pie dish but my first pie bird (and the first good oven mitt and trivet I’ve owned too). The pie dish is not only pretty (red is my favorite color in the kitchen) but large, making it perfect for big, family-sized pies. The oven mitt is heavy duty –  it beats folding up a few thin cloth napkins to grab something from the oven – and looks good too. The pie bird is not only cute – beware cat owners, your cats may trot off with this thinking it is their toy – but wonderfully functional. And who doesn’t want another trivet for their kitchen -when I’m not using it under pie I put it under my chemex coffee maker to keep it from scorching my counter tops.

Le Creuset Giveaway

To celebrate mother’s day, Le Creuset has been kind enough to give one lucky reader a Baker’s Set, which includes a 10″ pie dish, pie bird, oven mitt and trivet (all in a gorgeous cherry red). How cool is that?!

    My favorite pie depends on the time of year – right now, it has to be strawberry rhubarb. In the summer I love the bright taste of citrus – lemon meringue or key lime it is! In the winter, once I’m past pumpkin pie season (aka Thanksgiving) I start thinking about chocolate and pecans.

  • Ellen Wexler

    Isn’t “favorite pie” an oxymoron or something? I LOVE strawberry-rhubarb and this recipe looks divine, thank you. Also love key lime, lemon meringue… peach, cherry, blueberry… HELP!

    Don’t worry about me with regard to the giveaway. I don’t want to go register on the site. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your love for your mom with us and for this spectacular recipe. It looks delicious.

    Mmmm, Strawberry Rhubarb is fave of mine. I always order it with my friends at our local pie shop. I’ve never tried it with meringue. Love it with a lattice top and sugar sprinkled and baked on top. Amazing!

    My favorite pie is pecan pie.

  • Brian @ A Thought For Food

    I do a strawberry rhubarb kuchen every season and it’s something I always look forward to. But that meringue topping is just the thing that will take it over the top.

    There’s nothing better than a new pie dish… I have a feeling if I won, my mom would probably give it back to me. She’s a good mom. If that was the case, I’d have to whip up a coconut cream pie. It’s not something I’ve made before, but it’s on my list. So, yes, that’s what I’d make.

    Can’t go wrong with a classic apple though (with some brown butter, of course).

    Your mother will truly hold this article dear to her heart forever. To have a child write something like that about their parent is ever parent’s dream. She succeeded and believe me…many mother’s are not like the lovely one you have. You have me all choked up! Good luck with your giveaway and enjoy your new kitchen bobbles!

    Strawberry Rhubarb is probably one of my favorite types of pie! I’ve recently become obsessed with pies in general (Mission Pie in SF makes a mean strawberry rhubarb) and can’t wait to over-indulge this summer!

  • Laura

    I can only name one? Well, I guess it would have to be Lemon with just the right balance of sweet and tart under a mile-high meringue.

  • vanessalillian

    I signed up at Le Creuset. My favourite pie is cherry pie. It’s not that popular here in Australia but I made it for the first time last year, and ohhhhhhh myyyyyyy…!

    • vanessalillian

      Correction – it won’t let me sign up at Le Creuset because I don’t have an American address and the Australian English page returns a 404 error. Please don’t discount my entry! I did add you on Pintrest, though. Favourite pie is still cherry pie :)

  • Jennifer (Delicieux)

    What a beautiful post, you can really feel the amazing love you and your mother share.

    I love the sound of this pie. I love lemon meringue pies, they are perhaps one of my all time favourites, but the combination of strawberry and rhubarb just sounds so amazing.

  • Sleepyheadedmom

    My favorite pie is Lemon Meringue but I am defiantly going to have to try your recipe. It looks so delicious.

    But my rhubarb should be up in a couple of weeks and I am going to try this recipe.
    My mother always made the best rhubarb meringue pie, but she pasted away years ago and I never had the recipe
    Thanks

  • sarah

    My favorite pie is pear-vanilla bean.
    Your pie is so beautiful!

  • mjskit

    What a great post for your mom!!! You definitely show your love for an obviously wonderful woman! I was drawn to this post because my favorite pie is rhubarb, but in order to get my husband to eat it, I have to add strawberries which is almost as good. :) I’ve never had a strawberry-rhubarb meringue pie, but it looks delicious. Next time! I did sign up for the giveaway on Le Creuset and thank you for this opportunity!

    Hey guys, i’m a caffeine consumption enthusiast. So, I personally ended up looking over this short article and I truly appreciated it. It has got a few really superb ideas that I can process. I have got to state, I’ve been unhappy just
    lately given that my best mate is not here with me.
    Researching web pages provides me with some piece of mind though.
    I’d personally like to give thanks to you due to this cool www write-up which inturn helps to circulate the news in regards to coffee even more! I actually was curious as to if you have rss listing so I could always keep current on this site.
