ChezCindy: Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry Crust
The mention of chicken pot pie conjures up thoughts of old-style comfort. It can be a complicated process, or as this one is, super easy to put together for a weeknight meal.
I've created this recipe using store-bought rotisserie chicken, store-bought chicken broth (I use unsalted Kitchen Basics brand-comes in a yellow box), and store-bought puff pastry (Pepperidge Farm). Then you can add in standard vegetables such as carrots, peas, and potatoes. Or, use what you have in the fridge that you might find interesting - sliced mushrooms, roasted butternut squash, and diced parsnips.
Serve the pot pie straight from the pan. Easy to make and easy to share with family and friends.

ChezCindy: Fresh Strawberry Pie
This lovely free-form pie, also known as a galette, is a bite of strawberry delight. The recipe uses fresh strawberries cut into thick slices mixed with store-bought strawberry preserves for a double strawberry impact. The baked pie is quite delicious for how little effort required to put it together. I served it slightly warm topped with fresh whipped cream, and rosé sparkling wine.
Any left-over pie makes a great breakfast treat, somewhat reminiscent of toaster Pop-tarts.
If you are new to pie making, try making a galette. It doesn't require a special pan, just a flat surface such as a sheet tray for baking. You will have great success.
