I haven't always been a pumpkin anythng kinda girl but I have ALWAYS loved the fall season. I think it is quite possibly my favorite. There is something about the crisp air and beautiful foliage change that just makes it a happy time.
One thing I have noticed though is that as my girls have gotten older, I find myself associating pumpkin more and more with fall season. Yes I know, it is commercialized just like you associate egg nog with the winter season.
I recently tasted a pumpkin pie at work and it was soooo good. Granted, it was NOT low carb (hey, what fun is life if I can't have a treat every now and then?). Anyways, having that piece of pie made me want to go looking for a simple low carb option that I could enjoy in the fall.
The great thing about this recipe is that it is easy and most of the ingredients, you already have at home.
