Stay Calm and Bake Pie -- Episode 2, Mixed Berry Crumble

I am learning how to do the video shooting and editing on the fly -- flying solo, at that. I am using Doug's iPad to film and iMovie to edit. I'm starting to get the hang of splitting clips and splicing music. But the sound quality needs a lot of improvement. I need a wireless lavalier (clip on) microphone. I want to wait on shooting the next episode until I get the mic, but the next one is banana cream pie and Doug already bought the bananas... So to that I say, videos, like pies, are not about perfection!

In this berry crumble episode, I think (hope) you'll find the baking instruction useful and the farm scenery soothing. Even if you can't hear a damn thing! Enjoy and send me pictures of your pies -- and stories of who you baked them with, and shared them with.

Someone commented on my Facebook page that all this pie is going to make us fat! I had a whole spiel about that in this episode but the footage got deleted somewhere along the way. I was blathering on about how this berry pie is "just fruit," full of vitamins and antioxidants. I also added that while pie making is good for your heart and soul, exercise is good for your heart and body. So go for a walk or do an online dance class to balance out the eating. I don't want to be preachy, but I do feel it's worth mentioning.

Next episodes:
  • Banana Cream Pie 
  • Chicken Pot Pie 
  • Key Lime Pie 
  • hopefully a gluten-free pie in there somewhere, by request. 
  • and if I keep going, then Shaker lemon, spaghetti pie, French silk, peach...the list could be a long one!
