Thanksgiving is quickly approaching! It’s a time where we all want to indulge, but also don’t want to go off the deep end. On FOX 19 today, I’m sharing a healthified version of pumpkin pie. It uses evaporated milk instead of cream or half and half, and only 3/4 cups of sugar—for two pies! It’s a lightened version, but packed full of flavor that’s sure to please everyone at the dinner table.
