    I will take your serving(s) of pumpkin pie Red, I really like it - as long as it is not tooooo spicy. I once had one that burned my mouth........tooo spicy.

    Okay, I am going to try this recipe.

    You must understand I have cooked, on or in a stove, exactly three things in the past several years: boiled 30 banty eggs for Thanksgiving Day potluck at work, sauted some Portabello mushrooms this afternoon, and then cooked four slices of special, thick bacon in the same pan as the mushrooms had been sauted.

    Every other bit of cooking I've done has been in my microwave oven, crock pot, or 16 qt. electric roaster.
    I have had a brand new stove/oven in my house since ... I dunno, early August?

    Just inaugurated my stove this past week. Now I'm brave enough to try a simple recipe!!!

    Thank you, redhen!!

    Thanks redhen!!!

    I am not a pumpkn pie lover either.
    And I have probably 4-6 cups of cooked pumpkin left in my freezer from the Rouge Vif d'Etampes I grew last year.
    Now I know where it's going [​IMG]
