  1. I'm making a pumpkin cake roll, but now I think I might make this easy pie, too. Thanks for posting it!

  2. I know....doesn't this pie sound so quick and easy? I am making the pies for Thanksgiving, and I hate making crusts. That is why this recipe caught my eye! :)

    Your Pumpkin Cake Roll sounds delish!! YUM!!

  3. No I didn't. Anastasia gave me the option of cleaning the stove or the fridge. I picked the stove. (Then she snuck in the microwave oven. Ughhh!) Anyway, she was supposed to do it after dinner, but her sisters called last minute to invite her out. Looks like it's going to be today. Lol!

  4. wow...this recipe is easy....others are too complicated...thanks for sharing Marie....:)

    happy thanksgiving in advance...looking forward to see your!

    thanks for the visit...take care!

  5. Thanks for the info. Pumpkin pie sounds good especially when the recipe is easy!!

  6. I LOVE pumpkin pie! Wishing you a happy T-day, A. Marie. I'm thankful you are my blog pally. :)

  7. Hi there Lola! That is funny about Anastasia sneaking in the microwave! Between the both of you, you'll have a nice, clean kitchen for Thanksgiving! If you run out of appliances, I have a fridge that needs cleaning! :)

    dhema, I can't wait to try this recipe! I went to the store yesterday and bought everything that I need. I am really getting off easy this year, though, because my Mom is bringing the turkey. I got a great deal at 39 cents/lb, so each of us bought one, and she offered to bring the turkey! YAY! :)

    Hi SonyaAnn! I am all about easy recipes. I think it is because I am not motivated when it comes to pie baking!

    Lin, Isn't pumpkin pie the BEST!! YUM! I can't wait! I have whipped creme for the top and if I can get the container out of my teen son's hands (He absolutely LOVES Cool Whip! LOL), I am going to pile it on and dig in! I am thankful that you are my blog pally, also! Who knew that blog world would bring us all together! :)
