My name is Alexandra Gonzalez, and I'm a senior journalism major at the University of Florida. More importantly, I love baking! I've never been one to cook, but baking comes easily to me and satisfies my sweet tooth. This fall semester, I began a new baking adventure: I wanted to make a pumpkin pie from scratch. My mother is an excellent cook and baker, and she makes delightful meals completely from scratch. I wanted to be able to say that I can do the same - well, at least with one dessert.
My friends encouraged me to try baking pumpkin pie from scratch, and some of them even accompanied me to a pumpkin patch. After choosing a pumpkin, it took a few tries to get it right, but I eventually made my own pumpkin pie. This website is the product of my baking adventure, the subsequent interest a friend took in baking and my love of baked goods, especially those that are pumpkin-based. I mean, have you tried Starbucks' pumpkin lattes?
