3 Pies+ 1 Kitchen+ 3 not great recipes= One stressed out Brooke

Alligator Pie, Alligator Pie

If I don’t get some I think I’m gonna die,

Take away the green grass, take away the sky,

but don’t take away my alligator pie.

I have always loved this poem, enough that I was able to type it purely from memory. Growing up it was always something that seemed so happy, which is something I really needed while I was trying to bake pies on the weekend.

I have started to notice something, even though I am always convinced that the recipe will not work out, it always seems to, or at least it does as I make adjustments based on how bad I am at following recipes.

I made three different pies; Apple Pie, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with a crisp topping, and Banana Cream, all of these will have a homemade pie crust.

The making of the pies was not my worse experience baking, but I did learn one thing. The recipes I found online using all recipes were really off on their measurements. Eight apples was more like four, one pound of rhubarb really needed to be one cup, and one cup of strawberries instead of 2 pints. The recipes did not state how to cut the apples, rhubarb, or strawberries which made it a guessing game.

If someone happens to know of a good strategies for rolling out pie dough, I would love to hear them because my arms really hurt the next day.

I figured out a way to combine all of my segments into one large video; however, my sound is slightly off and I am not sure why. If anyone has any suggestions on video editing that would be great.
