Caramel Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is, without a doubt, my favorite type of pie. I always, and still do, greatly anticipated Thanksgiving because that meant there would be pumpkin pie for dessert. Luckily, I grew up in a family of pumpkin pie lovers so Thanksgiving was not the only time we would have pumpkin pie each year. I have a very distinct memory of visiting my Great Grandpa Frank’s house one afternoon and arriving just as he pulled a pumpkin pie out of the oven. Even though I prefer chilled pumpkin pie, I’ll never forget eating a warm slice of pie on a fall afternoon with him.

Giving Thanks

giving thanks | confections of a dietitian

As the card at my seat for Thanksgiving dinner prompted me to think about what I was thankful for, I realized that I couldn’t fit it all into a few lines. Since Thanksgiving is all about food, as is this blog, I decided I could post pictures of our phenomenal Thanksgiving meal, write about everything I am thankful for and, therefore, pass it off as a blog post. Feel free to keep reading my sappy thoughts (holidays always make me sentimental) or just drool at all of the delicious food (if you’re not too stuffed yourself).
