Today is Thanksgiving up in Canada, and it being the country I hail from, I get a bit nostalgic for the flavors and aromas that would always permeate the house on this particular day of the year. The highlight of Thanksgiving is of course the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. There would be turkey and stuffing with cranberry sauce, and plenty of side dishes, but it was always the dessert that had me hold back from getting completely stuffed during the main course. For you see, I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie. 

Now, pumpkin pie is a wonderful thing, but there's another option which my wonderful partner and wife came up with a few years ago that takes the pumpkin out of the pie, so to speak, and it totally rocks my world. She calls it Patty's Pumpkin Pudding, but it's essentially a crustless pumpkin pie that will make your nose swoon and your taste buds soar with delight. Seriously, this stuff is like pumpkin nirvana.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
