  1. This is the recipe I have been using for year. I often get asked for the recipe. The sweetened condensed milk is what makes this so good. Much better than the traditional Libby's recipe that many people make. Give it a try, yo will not be disappointed!
  2. I believe this recipe makes the perfect pumpkin pie. The creaminess far exceeds normal pumpkin pie. That said for our pie my daughter used some fresh pumpkin that she had frozen in culinary arts class. The texture was not as creamy as with the canned pumpkin. Next time I would only make with canned pumpkin. The wonderful creaminess is not be passed up. Made for Holiday PRMR.
  3. Yummy! I wanted a pumpkin pie, but I didn't have evaporated milk. This one fit the bill! It was so easy, and I loved that it didn't call for cloves. I think nutmeg fits so much better. This is smooth and fluffy when baked up. Thanks for posting a great recipe!
  4. This is also my favorite pumpkin pie recipe. I add a pinch of ground cloves. I like that the sweetened condensed milk makes the filling nice and thick so it doesn't slosh all over when you go to put it in the oven! Gives it great texture, too - smooth and creamy.
  5. I love this recipe, it is a staple for our holiday tables. Thanks for sharing here!


<p>Married to my sweetheart for almost forty years and we have two wonderful children who are grown and have flown the coop. Also, we have been blessed with a wonderful son-in-law and beautiful daughter-in-law, plus FIVE grandchildren: two beautiful granddaughters ages five and eight, and three sweet adorable little grandsons ages 2 months, 2 years and 3 years. My husband and I share a combination of English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Dutch, Swiss, Polish, Austrian, German and French heritage, and our son-in-law and daughter-in-law are both Hispanic. We've traveled extensively to many countries abroad (we lived in Germany), and have traveled and lived in several states here in the U.S.A. Many of the recipes I post here are influenced by our combined heritage or from our travels, or they are old family favorites that I want to share with you. I hope you enjoy! Have been to culinary school with many years of cooking (mostly for my family) under my belt, so know my way around a kitchen. And I'm very lucky to have the best sous chef in the world, dddddh! One of my favorite chefs of all time is Jacques Pepin! I have several of his cookbooks, and enjoy watching his television cooking show Fast Food My Way. Another top favorite is Julia Child (of course!). A few other chefs I read/enjoy watching on t.v. are: Giada At Home, Ina Garten's The Barefoot Contessa, Nigella Lawson's Nigella Bites, and Patti's Mexican Kitchen, and many more. On my bucket list is dining at Thomas Keller's establishment The French Laundry in Napa Valley, California... as well as Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in Berkeley, and the James Beard award winning Tartine Bakery and Cafe in San Francisco. One day!! &nbsp; Hobbies/Interests: Decorating with fresh flowers and herbs from the garden is my passion, and brings me deep joy! It's really hard to beat!! I love connecting with others who enjoy the same. Gardening, decorating, sewing, music, dancing, film, and reading are also up there. Spending quality time with my grandchildren, family, and friends (and cooking holiday meals!). Currently, a newfound passion has been so richly rewarding for me: genealogical research. I heart ancestry dot com. And last but certainly not least, I absolutely LOVE cats--we have two half-Siamese fur babies (cats) that allow us to live here!!&nbsp; &nbsp; A Note of Thanks~ I try to personally thank everyone who kindly makes and reviews my recipes, but sometimes I am busy, late, or may forget. Please know that I am always humbled that you would try one of my recipes, and I enjoy reading the reviews and seeing all the pretty photographs. Thanks so much!&nbsp;</p>
