Wow I've been awful at posting lately!
Lee has had the past few days off from work so we've just been lounging around the house enjoying each other... and eating.
I've been dreaming about Fall weather.. (like everyone one else in blog land ;) . Unfortunately, Fall has not made its way to southern Florida. I'll admit, it is so weird being some place HOT in September. Lee and I are both from Pennsylvania, which is like freezing for 8 months out of the year, and cold for the other 4 months ha. Definitely not my cup of tea. But I sure do love the change between summer and fall there... it's wonderful!
Anywayyys, despite Fall not arriving quite yet here in Florida, I have decided that I am going to start baking all the yummy Fall foods... and maybe it will arrive a little sooner ;)
So yesterday, we made our first pumpkin pie ever! I was super unsure of how it was going to turn out.
one, because we don't have a hand mixer (something we should totally invest in).. you definitely needed one for this recipe.
and two, because neither of us have ever made a pumpkin pie!
but we made due with what we had, and I think it turned out pretty good for the first one! Lee really liked it. I think it seemed a little bit wetter then it should have but I think that was just because we didn't get it quite the right consistency without the hand mixer. But, thats okay, we have plenty of time to improve! I love how cooking pies instantly makes the house smell like Fall.
We used this recipe. A lot of the reviews said that this recipe tasted more like a pumpkin cheesecake rather than the classic pumpkin pie recipe... which I do agree.
Do any of you have a great pumpkin pie recipe that you use every year??
SO loving the change of the seasons even if were not seeing it quite yet! And another thing, I just love being married during this time (ha.. of course I love being married all the time) but its so fun to bake yummy foods together, snuggle, and take walks at night as the weather starts to slowly cool off :)
PS thanks for all the feedback on the new layout! You all are too kind
