Strawberry + Blueberry Pie | Fortune Goodies

Summer is almost over. It’s back to school for me next Tuesday and I’m really not happy about it. So unhappy that I bought a bag of potato chips last night along with not one, but two different flavors of chip dip (french onion and buffalo sour cream), because I didn’t want to couldn’t decide on just one. Indecisive gluttony is not one of my more charming traits. 

Kind of like how I couldn’t decide between strawberry or blueberry pie, so I made this mostly strawberry pie with a few blueberries sprinkled throughout. Unlike the chip-dip slip, adding the blueberries was one of my better decisions.

Blueberry Muffins Aerial View

Muffins are my breakfast guilty pleasure. Add blueberries to the muffins and I’ll feel a little less guilty. Make this better-for-you blueberry muffin recipe and you’ll hear me ask, “What guilt? Pass me the muffins.”

That’s because these blueberry beauties are made with fat-free milk and non-fat greek yogurt, and use only half of the butter called for in most recipes. Now to be fair, when I say “most recipes,” I can really only speak for this one Paula Deen (too soon?) recipe that reads like a heart attack, but that’s neither here nor there. 

So yeah, I’m no nutritionist, but even I know that less fat means fewer worries and more of these muffins with blueberries (I’m on this weird almost-rhyming kick, sorry). Recipe after the jump.

Summer = Fruit Pie

Word-association games aren’t very fun for me. I usually draw a complete blank and people point and laugh and wonder if I’ve ever picked up a book. It’s tough. Summer and pie, however, are two words that I can easily get behind.
