A mission statement

Hello, and welcome to My Kitchen and I. Every year I choose a cuisine to explore. This year, it's the year of the Snake! And I'll be continuing to cook mostly Asian foods, particularly Chinese dishes. Have I finally found the best cuisine in the world? Come explore and cook with me and let's find out. Please feel free to share your stories and comment on anything you see here, and thanks so much for visiting. Hope you enjoy the Year of the Snake in food!

The finished pie!

I don't have a lot of time to write out the recipe right now, but the pumpkin pie is finished and I wanted to share a picture before it's all cut up and eaten! I will write more later on the pie, as well as the wine-tasting! (See previous post for a list of the wines!)

My edges are always too brown! I used foil (of course) to stave it off.
Would love tips from other bakers on what to do to prevent this!


  1. Have you tried lowering the oven rack by one level?

  2. That's a good suggestion. I have a gas stove, though. The heat comes from the bottom of the oven rather than the top.

  3. hmm might just have to lower the overall temp by five degrees... idk. I can't cook with a gas stove. lol

  4. Apparently neither can I! lol ; )


I love your comments!
