This week I tried a few new recipes. The first: a pumpkin pie recipe from French Women Don’t Get Fat.
The thing about pumpkin pie for me is this: I love the pumpkin part, but I don’t love the crust. Pie crust is bland and just always seems like a waste of calories. So, I made a few adjustments…ones that you might want to try if you’re making said pumpkin pie.
First, leave out the crust instructions. Then, make the sugar-nut mixture that goes between pie and crust, but either A) use it as a crust-like layer on the bottom or B) try pre-baking it a little per her instructions and then mix it in with the pumpkin mixture. Bake normally.
The second recipe I tried this week was Little Rags Soup (page 154, Cooking for Mr. Latte). And all I have to say about that one is YUM. Also, I diluted the chicken broth with a little water (maybe 1/3 water, 2/3 chicken broth) when I made it. Still very tasty.
