Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie

Our resident Celiac Girl is here to share her latest baking achievement:

The no-roll crust is seriously the best thing ever.  We'll start there:

1 1/2 C gluten-free flour blend
1 1/2 t sugar
1 t salt
1/2 C oil
2 T cold milk.

Mix together and press in pie pan.

Then for the pumpkin filling mix:

1 15 oz can pumpkin
3 eggs slightly beaten
1 C sugar (brown or white)
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t EACH of cloves, nutmeg, and ginger
1 C evaporated (or regular) milk

Pour filling into pressed in pan crust dough.  Preheat oven to 450.  Bake for 10 minutes and then reduce heat (leave pie in oven) to 350 and bake an additional 40-45 minutes.  Insert a knife to check if it is done.

One Bucket Down

Great news.  I think....

I've been grouting the tile whenever I'm in the mood to get messy, so pretty often.  It took longer than expected but today marked the finish of the first bucket o' premixed grout.  Still have more to do but considering we bought 5 buckets we've got WAY more than enough.

Western Decor Products

The cold weather has me thinking about warm and cozy western design again.  I've decided I want to make insulated plaid flannel curtains for the camper.  Sounds fun, right?  When summer comes I may lose my motivation, but since it'd keep the heat out too, I might be up to it!

Fires are so romantic.  I'm thinking about putting one of those fake fire space heaters in my master bathroom.  The tile is so brrr on these winter mornings.

Asian Products (but I maintain it has a western edge)
