For the Love of Pumpkin!
Here at the SandBar Photography, it’s not just family and children portraits this time of year that we love, but we have a passion for all things pumpkin, and especially this time of year.
SandBar photography loves all things pumpkin
Now although I am a children and family photographer I do have two other photographic passions one is with horses and the other is food. Well to be more accurate I love cooking and making food maybe a bit more than actually photographing it.
Sandy is a better newborn photographer and high school senior photographer than she is a cook! She’s one of my dearest friends but she needs a bit of help in cooking department, She asked for this recipe so I thought I would share and find something to blog about as well. I use this recipe for my pumpkin pie as we avoid the white sugar and replace it with a unprocessed ingredient honey.
first of all I start with FRESH PIE PUMPKINS
they are small.
I then cut them in half , take seeds out ( these can be baked as well for a nutritious snack )
Baking pumpkin seeds
and bake your pumpkin halves on 350 degrees for about an hour or until fork tender.

Let pumpkins cool down , then puree the pumpkin in my handy dandy ninja blender.
I then freeze enough for 2 pies ( 1 1/2 cup for each pie) in a quart freezer bag, date and label and freeze to last me thru the holidays.
Fresh Honey Pumpkin Pie
1 1/2 cup of Pumpkin Puree
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
fresh grated nutmeg ( just a pinch)
I like taking the nut and using the grater makes me feel so gourmet ! LOL
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 cup evaporated milk
1 pie shell
Mix all together and bake for one hour at 350 degrees
Enjoy ! and let me know if you try this?
