Easy Strawberry Pie for Virtual Easter Dinner

All week long the amazing bloggers that I teamed up with for the Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner, have been sharing their recipes for Easter Dinner. Laura started the week with her delicious Mustard Orange Glazed Ham, then Shaina added a wonderful Spring Orzo Salad, Tara shared an old family favorite, Hungarian Cucumber Salad, Tiffany created some Goat Cheese Biscuits that look and sound amazing, Aimee added a Potato Rosemary Strudel with a how-to video, and today I am adding the dessert.

This post is also a milestone… #1000!! WOW!! I can hardly believe I have written and published 1000 posts! I am absolutely having the time of my life and LOVE every minute of what I do! Even as I sit here in a disorganized office looking at my Dining Room table full of cupcakes and boxes from goodies for the Mother’s Day Giveaways.

As the holidays approach, our grocery budget usually gets stretched quite a bit. And even sometimes, we have a get-together to go to and would like to take something spectacular and delicious, but don’t want to spend tons of time and more importantly, tons of money.

This Easy Strawberry Pie can be made ahead, which is always a good idea when you are trying to prepare Easter Dinner. Even though it’s an easy dessert, our family looks forward to having it every Spring.
