MARTINSBURG, W.Va. --John Michaels didn't really have a strategy to win the junior division of the pie eating contest Wednesday at the Berkeley County Youth Fair. "I just ate," said the 13-year-old Glengary, W.Va., boy after being the fastest among about 20 contestants to eat a small eclair pie with their hands behind their back. Michaels won $15 and was presented with the certificate. Other than a little bit of chocolate drizzled on the crust, Michaels said he didn't actually taste what he stuffed in his mouth in a matter of seconds and swallowed without the aid of silverware.

This pie was created after working with Wisconsin mascarpone in a variety of fashions including simply blending equal parts of mascarpone and chocolate. I took it one step further and created a crispy crust of fresh, chopped pretzels, a little bit of butter and some brown sugar for sweetness. It's a nice dessert to have ready in a few minutes and that all it takes to make this delicious creamy dessert.  You need about 6 minutes to cook the crust to set it and then about 5 to 8 minutes to blend the chocolate that you melted into the fresh mascarpone cheese.

andrews@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Compared to the usual demands of their jobs - legislate, manage, govern, vote - for three local politicians, Friday's assignment was a snap: Eat. More specifically, taste 10 pies - and pick a winner. Hagerstown Mayor William M. Breichner, Del. Robert A. McKee and Del. Christopher Shank judged a pumpkin pie contest at Broadmore Assisted Living at Hagerstown. About two dozen residents watched the three elected officials sit together at a head table and nibble on slivers of pie. The judges scored each pie on its appearance, flavor and texture.

In keeping with the harvest of blackberries, I wanted to create something equally as sweet yet, simple in cooking so many can enjoy the comfort of freshly baked pie without the fuss.   One tip is to make sure you wash the berries and let them drain so they are not overly wet when making the recipe. If there is too much water, the fruit will release its own juices and make the pie a runny mess.   If the berries are sweet, reduce the first amount of sugar to 1/2 cup. I like to incorporate fresh lime juice to brighten the berry flavor, but if you do not have fresh, bottled will do. In addition, I prefer lime but lemon will work in a pinch if lime is unavailable.

Back in the late 1950s and early '60s, the school ground in Dargan was the place to be if you wanted to play a little baseball. All the kids in the community would enjoy their summer vacations from school by playing the most popular sport. Nothing quite like a good baseball game or two and a slice of Grandma's homemade apple pie later. As we prepared for a big game, I would often toss a bat to another player and while we both grasped the bat we would place one hand above each other's until the last hand rested on the top of the bat. That person would then have first choice on choosing his team.

I am a changed man. A more open-minded man. Fifteen months ago, I had a conversion experience. Just before the big Halloween snow in 2011, my wife, Yolanda, told me she was going to eat a gluten-free, grain-free diet for 30 days. When I heard these words, I kept my face placid, but inside, my food-loving heart of hearts was doing an imitation of "The Scream. " You see, we generally eat as a family, and when two of the kids went vegetarian, we all ate vegetarian, by and large. That was OK - food was still flavorful.

In 2002, the committee organizing Old Tyme Christmas in Funkstown published a cookbook of family recipes. The book included a lot of old-style recipes, such as cheeseburger pie, stuffed meatloaf and pork chop casserole. Paulette Sirbaugh submitted this recipe for the cookbook. She learned this recipe from Funkstown resident Geraldine Ridgely. "She was my neighbor. Her husband was a great dessert lover. He wanted dessert after every meal," Sirbaugh said. "This was her pie. After she passed away, whenever we needed a pie, we used this one. " For the month of December, The Herald-Mail will publish dessert recipes from the "Funkstown Old Tyme Christmas Cookbook.

Janet Rohrer of Boonsboro doesn't know exactly know how her bumbleberry pie got its name. "I think it's just made up," she said, suggesting that the collection of berries and fruit in the pie might have something to do with it. But judges at the Washington County Ag Expo & Fair have another name for Rohrer's pie: champion. Rohrer, 64, won champion in the pie division and took home grand champion in overall baked goods and candy category during the Ag Expo last month. Cooking since she was 9 years old, Rohrer said she has only been baking pies the last 10 years.
