Hi there - I've just started following your blog.

This pie looks absolutely delish - but you don't include the recipe for the crust.

This was a teaser! If I give away all my recipes, no one will buy my books. :-)

For you, though, Kim, I'll probably post the crust shortly.

Thanks Jennifer :o)

I like your blog and recipes. I am also hypo and find that lowcarbing makes me feel better.

If I were to buy one of your books, which one should I get.
