Easy Traditional Pumpkin Pie


As I checked in our blog today, searching for the pumpkin pie recipe we made two Thanksgivings ago, I was appalled to find nary a trace of it, as if such deliciosity had ne’er occurred! I did a cursory web search, trying to find something that approximated what we’d made previously, but everything seemed to have too […]

We’re featured on the Made Just Right (Earth Balance folks) blog!


Happy almost Spanksgiving everyone! The folks over at Made Just Right featured our Faux Turkey recipe! We’ll be making this again this year, while visting Amy’s folks in their new home in Iowa.

While it’s a fairly obvious fact that other countries don’t celebrate the same Thanksgiving as we […]

I don’t know where Uncle Nathan found the recipe, but over the years it’s become Amy’s and my staple Spanksgiving centerpiece. What’s great about this (aside from being delicious) is that it doesn’t […]
