Despite the fact that it is currently 80 degrees, rainy and humid in New York City, I still have Fall Fever. Fall is hands down the best season of the year, especially in NYC….the cooler weather, root vegetables in season, fall foods like Apple Pie, Butternut Squash, and one of my favorites: Pumpkin Pie. I was thinking this week that the last time I had pumpkin pie was when my mom last made it for Thanksgiving 2010….that’s 3 years sans pie deliciousness. Now, for anyone that knew my mom, she made EVERYTHING from scratch….there was none of this “store bought” anything….she was the real deal….but we all commonly agreed that the BEST Pumpkin Pie came from the Libby’s Canned Pumpkin Mix. It’s by far the best tasting pumpkin anything I’ve ever had.
So while out shopping with the hubby this weekend, I noticed the pumpkin has started to make it’s appearance in Supermarkets, and jumped at the opportunity to get my Fall on and cook up a dish, that to me, tastes like Fall on a plate. This one was for you mom, it tasted just like you used to make, and I know you were watching me bake it!
