"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My Aunt Ardis always requested I make these for any joint Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners we attended. I'm not sure if it's just the familiarity of what we grew up with or that it's very difficult to reach the same consistency with homegrown pumpkins/squash, this was always a desired version of pumpkin pie. We loved the other home made pies as well, but nothing beats a Libby's Pumpkin Pie topped with Cool Whip!
