May Online Conference.. and Blueberry Pie

Yes! Our next Joyous~Homemaking and Wise Guy online conferences are at the end of this month. May 29th marks the start! We have Jennie Chancey from Sense & Sensibility joining us again to teach her new Gathered Dress Pattern. She mentioned the new dress in the last conference she did with us, and it was too sweet not to do a class on it! I'm seeing some new little dresses for the girls this summer.. don't you? :) Such a pretty dress, and so simple to make!

Mom and I are doing a quilting lesson with our project, "Summer Days" quilted table runner. I love all of the blues with this pattern, I think it's going to make a lovely runner! We are making this into a good beginners quilting class, with an added challenge of using triangles for those of you who have prior experience with all square block quilts.

May 30th is The Wise Guy. Lots of good stuff for the men this time! In Auto Talk, John Powers is going to be teaching the men how to service their own transmission. Following that is going to be a lesson in woodworking, making something that Mom's like: a Kitchen Pantry Cabinet.

Visit our website for more details! We are so looking forward to another weekend of teaching with everyone! Hope to see you there.. :)

Now for a recipe.. Mom made this scrumptious pie for Easter.

Blueberry Pie

For this recipe you need two 10" pie crusts (your favorite pie crust recipe!). In a small bowl whisk together 1 1/2 cups sugar and 6 Tbsp. potato starch. In a large bowl combine:

6 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
potato starch/sugar mixture
juice from 1/2 large lemon

Stir together until all of the berries are well coated with the sugar mixture. Let sit for 30 minutes, or until a thick syrup has formed. Pour pie filling into crust. Cut 2 Tbsp. cold butter into small pieces and scatter across of the top of filling. Cover with second crust.

Make a light egg wash by whisking together one egg white and 2 Tbsp. half & half. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, brush once more with the egg wash. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Use a sharp knife to cut four slits in the top of the crust.

Bake pie for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 and bake pie for an additional 40 minutes, until the crust is lightly browned and the juice is bubbling. Mmmm... yummy!!

Happy Friday! ~*~Jessica~*~
