I was experimenting with a few pumpkin pie recipes prior to Thanksgiving this year and managed to assemble a “best tasting” recipe as a result. The basis for it came from a Better Homes and Gardens recipe book I had in my kitchen, but I made a few slight modifications to it.

How do food lovers give good wishes to someone who leaves work to go on an overseas trip? Well, we have an international potluck of course! Today, we did just that and so I decided to make a couple of Mediterranean contributions to the event. I decided to make two items for this simply because I had several leftover ingredients I knew I could use before they reached their expiry dates. Also, I recently got a new Cuisinart food processor for a birthday present and so decided I would make good use of my new kitchen addition (so far, I love that thing!).
