  1. I LURVE strawberry jello pie! This crust sounds amazing, and this tart sounds very delicious.

    Also, I like that your birthday is the 4th of July!

  2. It's so sad that I haven't bought any fresh berries yet this spring or summer...they're just so darn expensive! I really need to though...the ones in your pie look so bright and delicious. The pie sounds like a great way to use them!!!

    happy bday! Mine's on July 7th :)

    1. They are still expensive, I know. But they're cheaper now in the summer and so worth it!

  3. When I think strawberry pie, I think "Red and Wild" (name that movie!)

    Happy Independence Day and Happy Birthday!

  4. Happy, happy birthday, Em. Eat cake!

  7. I love fresh strawberry tart - and I agree, pie always seems to be so much better when someone else makes it for you! You have a lovely blog. :)
