What do blogging and pumpkin pie have to do with one another, you ask? Well, as I took this photo of the best ever (I swear!) pumpkin pie I realized that I miss my blog... I have blogged in this space since 2007. Then, last spring (2013), I decided to take down my blog. Now I miss it. I will need to start fresh as I deleted all my (tons and tons!) photos that were linked to the blog. Sometimes it is nice to start fresh. I must say it feels bitter sweet. We'll see where this journey takes me... Tonight's pumpkin pie got me sharing my thoughts again for whoever decides they might be interested in what I have to say.
So. Back to the pie. It is a simple Joy of Cooking recipe but, wow, did it taste good. Maybe it was because the pumpkin was fresh picked from our own small family garden in the front yard. Maybe it was because I used allspice this time. Not sure. And, yes, indeed, those are finger marks in the top of the pie - I said yes when my daughters wanted to take a lick as soon as the pie came out of the oven. Saying yes is good...even better than a pristine pie.
