Marshmallow Mermaid Pie-The Waitress
One of my favorite movies is ‘The Waitress” with Keri Russell. There was not much buzz about it back in 2007 but if you are a lover of pie, it is a MUST see. This movie has inspired me to cook from my gut and from who I am. There are a whole list of pies she makes in the movie, some with a recipe and some without one. I made the pie she invented when she was 9 years old (in her mermaid phase). The doctor she gives it to called it “biblically” good. So, the kids and I got together to make what we think could be the pie. Here is a list of her other pies she makes that she invents as she goes through the struggles of her life. I need to make a ‘be kind to yourself always pie’. In fact, I may invent that one this weekend. Oh, and I have more thoughts on pie and pie crust here.
