Happy Thanksgiving!!!

November 27th, 2008


Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a wonderful turkey-filled Thanksgiving with your friends and family!

So, Thanksgiving, as you would probably agree, is not complete without a good slice of pie. In my family, we always have pumpkin, pecan, chocolate chess and pine nut. This is the first year that I am unable to go home for Thanksgiving. Even though I miss my family, I refuse to miss out on the Pine Nut Pie. This pie is just amazing…buttery brown sugar with pine nuts! How can you go wrong? After making this myself, I think I would add a pinch of salt.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
