Homemade Kahlua Pumpkin Pie Recipe!

This homemade Kahlua pumpkin pie recipe is the best pumpkin pie I’ve ever made!  The combination of pumpkin pie spices and the chocolate coffee flavors of Kahlua can’t be topped!  And of course that mountain of whipping cream just adds to the experience don’t you think?

Now I love to make my own pie crust, that’s what pieladybakes.com is all about right?  It’s a crazy busy time at work right now, and combining that with the holidays and baking, well I thought I would explore what is out there when it comes to frozen pie crusts and products. For this pie I decided to try one of the popular cookie pie crusts that everyone is using right now.

Baking the Pie Crust:

I just love the flavour of gingerbread, so for this recipe we’re making a gingerbread cookie pie crust!  One box of 24 cookies, crushed in your food processor, with a little butter and sugar and presto!  You have one delicious pie crust.  We bake it for about 15 minutes before baking the whole pie.

 

Making the Filling:

With the pie crust out of the way, putting the filling together takes about 15 minutes when you have all of your ingredients out on the counter.  I like to get everything out and measured too, as I find this method of baking really saves time.  I’m all about organizing my pantry and saving time in the kitchen, are you?

The first ingredient of the recipe is Kahlua – how cool is that?

Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice:

Now I rarely have pumpkin pie spice in my pantry.  Honestly I just never think to buy it.  So here’s a trick so that you will always have your own homemade pumpkin pie spice on hand!  Pumpkin Pie Spice includes cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.  So the ratio is always

  • 1 part cinnamon
  • 1/4 part ginger
  • 1/4 part nutmeg
  • 1/8 part cloves

Mix it up in a cute little jar like the one shown here (I usually pick these up at the dollar store or big box kitchen store). And there you go!

Putting it together:

As soon as the filling is cooked, pour it slowly into the baked pie shell and then bake in your oven as per the recipe below.

Once your pie has baked and cooled, it’s time to go crazy with whipping cream!  Such a beautiful and perfect pie.

I have made many different types of pumpkin pie recipes,

but this homemade Kahlua Pumpkin Pie Recipe is the ultimate blending

of spices and exotic flavors.

In both of these detailed and informative posts, I mention the importance of tire maintenance, and go into a bit of detail about it.

In this post I will give you more detail, and a cautionary tale about why RV Tire Maintenance is so important.

So important in fact it could save your life.

 

Here is our story.

 

In 2014, as newbie RV travellers, what we realized early on was that we didn’t know what we didn’t know. So we started to keep a log – a diary of sorts when things wouldn’t work, needed repair, heck anything at all.

Sometimes it was just going through the instruction booklets that came with the trailer – our previous owners kept it all and we are very thankful for that! Other times we searched the web and popular forums such as xxxxxxx.

But life does have its ups and downs, and sometimes, well sometimes you just have to earn your experience the hard way. You know what I mean? Well here’s what happened.

What’s the harm in buying more insurance?

When at Camping World, the sales staff told us about the special roadside assistance package that was being promoted with Good Sam, only $65.

When my husband reminded me we already had a package with a well know roadside assistance company, I said “it’s such a good deal. Besides, you can never have too much insurance.”

I would remember that statement many times over during the next few weeks.

 

Our trip had begun 10 days earlier, travelling from home in southern Ontario, in our 2008 Titantium Fifth Wheel, (pulled by a Chevrolet Silverado 1 ton Dually Diesel )to Myrtle Beach, SC. Along the way we stopped at a KOA in Fredericksburgh, while we visited family in the Washington, DC area.

Travelling on to Mebane, NC we stayed at the Jones Station RV Park, a delightful RV park, with wide open spaces and lots of room to run the dogs. We would spend several days here while visiting our good friends, Skip and Nancy in Mebane, and spending a day at the US Open Golf Tournament at Pinehurst, NC.

Our final leg was Myrtle Beach, SC and we stayed at the Ocean Lakes Resort,  a huge resort, with campsites, cottages, condominiums. It was a bit of sensory overload for us and our three pooches, Max, Millie and Barkley. But we played lots of golf, and had fun walking the beach every night.

We were heading north and east to the Maritimes – our next journey, and had been asked by my cousin Alyson to pick up some trailer accessories at Camping World. There was a huge store very close to our campsite, so on our way out of MB, we stopped in to check it out.

And of course that’s how we ended up with Good Sam Roadside Assistance package. And a bunch of other RV stuff, but I digress.

 

So with sunburns, tired pooches, and a brand new roadside assistance plan from Good Sam, we headed our Fiver (RV talk for a Fifth Wheel) north and east – destination Prince Edward Island, Canada.

The trip up through the States was an experience in itself. Following our GPS, we ended up in some pretty interesting places. We were so grateful to the officer at one of the toll booths on a turnpike – the Jersey Turnpike I think?

She told us to get off the turnpike (it was costing a small fortune) to stick to lessert travelled highway and we would end up at the Maine/New Brunswick Border. And we did, several days later, enjoying the drive, but we were now anxious to get to our destination- Twin Shores RV Park near Kensington, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

We decided to make a run for it this day – still plenty of daylight left, but as we arrived near Fredericton, NB, we pulled off the road to have a real meal and relax for a couple of hours. Beside the dogs needed a good stretch too.

Relaxed, refreshed and with full bellies , we were now ready to finish the final push to PEI. But as we got ready to load up – all five of us, we stood beside the Fiver and stared down at one of the wheels – it was completely flat.

It appeared that we weren’t going anywhere anytime soon. My hubby pulled out his travel card – from the well know roadside assistance company and called the number. RV roadside assistance is a specialized service and when the person on the other end of our cell phone asked if we had a jack in our car, we knew we were in trouble.

I believe the words my husband used were “Son, you want me to jack up 15,000 lb worth of trailer by myself?” They really didn’t have a response for that and said they would call us back.

 

Looking at each other with a “what do we do now?” look, it was obviously time for Plan B. And so we called the number on the Good Sam Roadside Assistance card we had just purchased less than a week before. I even think I might have held my breath while waiting for the call to go through.

We were shocked. We immediately were connected with someone very knowledgeable about RV’s – she asked what type of unit we had, length, weight etc. and the exact location that we were sitting in.

But the very first thing she asked?

“Are you and family safe, sir?”

We assured her we were and within less than 20 minutes a Tire Repair Tow Truck arrived, jacked up the trailer and put on our spare. We were cautioned, however to get a new tire as we were now travelling without a spare and upon arrival in PEI at 4 a.m., we made arrangements to do exactly that.

 

I won’t go into details here about our time on the Island. PEI is glorious in the summer and if you haven’t been, you really need to go. Our time there was way too short, and as all good things must come to an end, we packed up and with a brand new tire firmly installed on the Fifth Wheel, and all wheels balanced, we turned westward and bid our Island vacation a tearful goodbye.

Well not really, but it sounds good doesn’t it? 🙂

Remember what I said about having to learn some experiences the hard way?

Relaxed, happy and looking forward to getting home, we made excellent time as we passed Moncton, New Brunswick, travelling the Trans Canada 2 and making our way west and north. W were getting near the capital Fredericton. The highway through here is in really good shape, and we were really motoring – probably doing about 120km/hour (65 mph). The dually is so powerful, you really don’t know you are pulling a Fifth Wheel.

When we stopped shortly after to fill up with diesel – I decided to give the dogs a stretch. This was an Irving station and there was a nice little picnic area.  While the pups were enjoying the sights and smells of fresh grass to sniff, I looked up to see Mark waving at me frantically, so headed over to the diesel pumps.

He was pointing at the wheels. Well he was pointing to where the new wheel used to be. At some point, during the past 3 hours, the new wheel had completely shorn off the axle and we had been driving with only three wheels!

 

The scary part is that we had been driving 65 mph (120 kmh) and we are convinced (and the tire company confirmed this) that if it hadn’t been for the dually truck we were pulling the trailer with, we would have been experienced a very serious accident. Or worse.

A quick call to the “RV specialist” who sold us the tire and installed it resulted in a full refund. And a confession that ‘maybe I didn’t torque the tire enough’. He also didn’t tell us to check the tire every few hundred miles to make sure the bolts were good and snug.

Good Sam to the rescue once again! They dispatched a tire repair company from Surrey – we were out in the middle of nowhere. Because the wheel was completely gone, they had to fabricate the bolts needed to fasten the new wheel to the trailer.

In fact we needed the bolts before they could even put the old spare on! Two days of boon docking at the Irving station later, we had a new wheel, a new torque wrench and were now tired, and very weary.

Again, Good Sam Roadside Assistance covered the cost of all the service calls (there were several) and we of course paid for a new wheel and tire.

Our lesson learned was the importance of having a torque wrench and checking your tires every so many miles.

Our education about the importance of RV tire care was not over however. We would experience another tire issue as we passed Quebec City – when a motorist flagged us and pointed to a right tire that now had a huge bulge!. At this point I was making lists upon lists of what we needed to do for RV tire maintenance.

Once more we went through the process of sitting stranded, while Good Sam arrived, and put on our spare tire. Exhausted beyond belief, we pulled in to the next campsite and spent a couple of days to calm down and draw breath.

So what the heck happened?

We purchased our Fifth Wheel from an RV Dealer, but it was used, about six years old. The exterior and interior were in awesome shape, but what we didn’t know was the age and wear on the RV tires that the Fiver had experienced.

So the smart thing we could have done before heading out on such a long trip, was to have the tires inspected professionally, and replacing your tires was a good idea when they were showing significant wear and age.

We learned that taking care of your RV Tires, and regular RV Tire maintenance was critical to road safety, and an enjoyable trip.

From our experience with the Tire Shop in New Brunswick, we were taught the importance of the torque wrench, and how it was critical to check tire condition and pressure as well as torque them regularly throughout the trip.

By that time we were so paranoid, we were checking at every stop!

I’ve included some links to RV Tire specialists – that will provide information about tire pressure etc. as well as Good Sam’s Roadside Assistance. Check your warranty with your dealer as well.

I would caution you though, that if you are buying a used unit, like we did, to put new tires into the budget.

As soon as we arrived home, we spent $1500 on four new tires and rims. Had we known to do this at the beginning of our trip, a lot of worry and angst would have been avoided.

So here is our Top 5 List for RV Tire Maintenance!

1. Tire Condition and Pressure
2. Checking your RV tires every time you stop
3. Keeping the tires clean
4. Replacing your tires when you buy used
5. Practice Tire Safety While Travelling

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe.  This is our Best Pumpkin Pie recipe!

Pumpkin pie season is here and while I’m not one, many folks simply can’t tolerate gluten or wheat in their diets.  My regular pumpkin pie recipe includes a heaping tablespoon of flour in it, so I wanted to create a gluten free pumpkin pie recipe that everyone could enjoy.

Not only is this amazing pie gluten free, it’s full of rich, creamy flavor.  That’s the beauty of creating homemade desserts too.  You know that you are putting real food into the recipe, not chemically laden foods.

We have several pumpkin pie recipes on the blog now so be sure to check them out!

My daughter has Celiac Disease and it is a very serious condition.  Thankfully there are many, many gluten-free alternatives today.  Gluten free is definitely mainstream.

This Simple Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe is not only lovely to look at – it tastes amazing.  Very rich and creamy, and made with my gluten free pie crust recipe, it’s the bomb!

The original recipe came from a label off a can of Eagle Brand Condensed Milk, and I’ve tweaked it a bit just for you .

Ingredients

one 9″ gluten-free pie crust – unbaked

one 14 oz/398ml can pumpkin (unsweetened)

1 can  Sweetened Condensed Milk

2 eggs

1 tsp cinnamon

one-half tsp ginger

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 salt

gluten free pumpkin pie recipe gluten free pumpkin pie how to make gluten free pumpkin pie dairy free gluten free pumpkin pie easy gluten free pumpkin pie recipe homemade gluten free pumpkin pie recipe

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425F/220C

In a large bowl combine the filling ingredients and mix well.  I use a small handheld mixer, but be careful.  Pumpkin pie filling will spray all over the place!

Next, pour the filling into the gluten free pie crust shell.  You can make your own – using gluten free flours or buy one frozen and already prepared.  There are some quality prepared pie crusts in grocery stores now!

Bake 15 minutes at 425F/220C and then reduce your oven temperature to 350F/180C and bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean.   Be sure not to overcook as the filling will ‘crack’ around the edges.

Finally, cool and garnish with whipped cream and pecan halves.
