Who Wants Some Pie?

If you haven't seen the movie Waitress yet, you need to rent it. I have been inspired to make pies ever since I watched it. Keri Russell's character comes up with some real doozies in the film, one being "Marshmallow Mermaid Pie" of which I'm still trying to find the recipe.

Go watch it. It's all warm and feel good and all that crap, but if you really want to be hit hard by a film then go read about the woman who starred in it and produced it. That will surely bring a tear to your eye.
