How can there be bad kittens? I look around at the shredded piles of toilet paper and I see only good kittens who sometimes do bad things. That said, it is pretty hard to shake the sense that Tangerine is truly a bad, bad kitten pretending at occasional goodness -- what's with all the glowing demon-eyes in the photos!!

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This is the recipe found on cans of Libby's pumpkin.


3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 large eggs (okay to use Egg Beaters or other whole egg substitute)
15 oz pumpkin
12 fl oz evaporated milk
1 unbaked deep dish pie shell (I buy frozen shells)


Mix together sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves
Beat eggs in large mixing bowl
Stir in pumpkin
Stir in dry ingredients
Gradually add evaporated milk
Pour into pie shell
Bake at 425F for 15 minutes
Reduce oven to 350F for another 40-50 minutes, until pie looks set.
Cool on rack for 2 hours.


If you are buying frozen pie shells at the store, inspect them carefully for damage. Do buy brands wrapped in opaque plastic where you cannot see if the shell has broken.

I prefer pumpkin pie cold, the next day.
Tatiana likes cold pumpkin pie, too, but with whipped cream.
The kittens like the pie and the whipped cream but not the pie crust.
