Mixed Berry Pie

So here's the thing. I've become obsessed with baking lately, and I've been stealing recipes from various blogs around the net, playing around with them, trying them out...but I haven't been taking any photos (although that's probably a good thing; my presentation skills leave something to be desired), nor have I recorded anything that I've actually done, what needs to be changed, and how I would do so in the future. Plus, I want a place where I can actual comment on other bloggers pages, not to mention a place to keep track of all the blogs I read, instead of going to Culinary Adventures' blog every time I want to browse around my favorite cooking/baking blogs. Thanks Randi, by the way, for getting me into this!

Yeah, I go. I made a mixed berry pie last night from a recipe found on the Food Network webpage (blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries), and was somewhat pleased with it. I used a lattice crust instead of a full top crust, because it just looks so pretty with all the berries oozing through, but the filling turned out a bit too...watery, I suppose...for my taste. It may have just needed more standing time, or I may add some cornstarch next time to thicken it up a bit. No photo for this time though, for sure.
