What can I say about this pie? I mean, besides the fact that it’s so easy to make. Besides the fact that it’s cold and refreshing and sweet and fresh and summery, and bright, and just lovely. What can I say other than I love it!
1 cup sugar
1 cup very cold water
3 tablespoons Jell-o Strawberry flavor (powder) gelatin mix
3 cups fresh ripe strawberries, cut in half
3 heaping tablespoons cornstarch
1 (9 inch) ready-made or homemade pie crust, baked and cooled
Rinse and hull strawberries. Slice them in half or quarters depending how large they are. Set aside. Bake your pie crust and set aside to completely cook.
In a saucepan over medium high heat, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and 3 tablespoons of the gelatin powder. Add cold water and stir until mixture dissolves. Continue to whisk constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and allow liquid to cool. Keep in mind, the colder the water the quicker the mixture will begin to set. Continue to whisk it as it cools so it begins to thicken but can still be poured.

Rib Eye Steaks and Shrimp
2-4 rib well marbled rib eyes cut 1 ½’ to 2” thick
Salt and pepper
1 pound of unpeeled large raw shrimp
2 lemons sliced in half
Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let them come to room temperature, about 30 to 45 minutes. This is important if you want them to cook evenly with no cold spots.
Heat a gas or charcoal grill to high (about 500 degrees). It is important to
preheat your grill for at least 10-15 minutes to reach that temperature. Add
some vegetable oil to a thickly folded paper towel or old dish towel and using tongs,
oil the hot grill by rubbing the oil saturated towel across grill grates.
Meanwhile, Place steaks on a
large platter and drizzle them with a little
olive oil. Then generously season all sides with salt and pepper and garlic
Brush shrimp with olive oil and generously season with Old Bay Seasoning. Do not peel shrimp.... they are best grilled with shell on. Set aside until steaks are finished
When the grill is ready, place the steaks on the grates and cover
the grill. Cook, undisturbed, for about 4-5 minutes. Flip steaks over, cover
the grill and cook for another 4-5 minutes for medium rare.
Remove steaks from grill and transfer to platter. Tent with aluminum foil. Allow steaks to rest for at least 10 minutes.
