GLUTEN-FREE PUMKIN PIE

GLUTEN-FREE PUMPKIN PIE

I called my Blog Angie’s Food Adventures for a reason, I love experimenting with food!

I also like finding ways to produce great tasting food with the fewest ingredients and the least amount of time spent in the kitchen!

This is another experiment of mine using Pumpkin! I’ve combined a few different recipes, changed them up to appeal to my taste and my gluten-free requirements. I was very happy with the result and the got thumbs up from everyone who tried it!

Hope you like it too!

About Angie's Food Adventures

I thought I could cook in my early twenties, then I found out that Mac and Cheese and Ham Steaks wasn't really cooking. Then I met some vegetarians and tried that for a while. Learned a lot. In my thirties I started craving my Italian roots so I started really paying attention to family recipes. By the time I was 40 I had gained about 20 lbs and had my first gallbladder attack. Note to self: simple carbs are not for me! That's when my journey into healthy eating began. Since then, I've read and researched and read....I've tried a lot of diets and lifestyles and I can honestly say, I've finally established my own way of cooking and preparing food that agrees with me, still keeping to my roots and beyond!
