Giving Thanks for Pie
I lack a certain domestic gene when it comes to baking, it's never been a big deal because my in-laws are amazing bakers. I was super excited and a bit intimidated when it was announced that this Thanksgiving we would hold the First Annual Family Thanksgiving Pie Contest. I perused pie recipes for weeks, and decided on a Turtle Pumpkin Pie. I added the secret ingredient and all was going well. Well, until I got to the presentation portion. I was trying to drizzle homemade caramel sauce in a decorative pattern but it didn't work. A couple different attempts ended up with caramel on the cabinets, ceiling, my face & hair. I highly doubt my in laws had any kitchen mishaps during their pie baking.
