  1. My family liked this pie. Putting gingerale in a strawberry pie was a new ingredient for me. I put a little more ginger ale in mine since one of the reviews said it was a little thick. A very cool and refreshing pie. Easy too. Thanks Zanna Bullwinkle.
  2. I didn't care too much for this. It was like jello with strawberries in a pie shell. It was very firm.
  3. The Strawberry pie was fantastic!!! It was a fight to even be able to keep some for the next day!! This will definately become a regular dessert in my home!
  4. So quick & easy to prepare and a delicious change from the regular Strawberry Shortcake enjoyed by us northerners! I didn't have any ginger ale but the slight lemon flavour of 7-Up was a good substitute. Thanx Zanna!
  5. This is another one of those recipes that is worth 10 stars! Totally Awesome! Fast and easy. Hardest part was slicing the strawberries. Definitely a keeper here! Thanks so much Zanna


I have taught myself how to cook since college and my advice about cooking is to keep practicing, try all sorts of cookbooks and different recipes, and don't be afraid to fail--you'll always learn something from it (of course, I'm a teacher so it makes sense that I believe that). I moved to Dallas 3 years ago and I love the ready availability of genuine Mexican food in the area. It's the one kind of cuisine I've never tried to make myself because the restaurants in my area are so good. I love movies, music from the 70's and 80's, animals, and beautiful weather.
