Bacon Pumpkin Pie

My friend Christine sent me this recipe months ago, but I decided it really had to be saved for Thanksgiving. And now that November is here, the recipe sharing can commence. This pie is unique in many ways. First off, it has a graham cracker crust rather than a...

Home of the Free, Land of the Bacon

Marianne couldn’t post today…she’s going to spend all day voting. Or at least that’s what she WANTS to do. She’ll probably spend the entire day and night watching election coverage, so I offered to fill in for her. On this Election Day, I...
