Easy Pumpkin Pie and Being Carton Smart

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart. All opinions are 100% mine.
Imagine if everyone made one small, smart decision a day. How much would it help our planet and our own personal worlds? As an individual, it feels small, but as a collective, the small, smart decisions add up. Tetra Pak applauds the thousands of small acts of smartness that add up to make a big difference. Tetra Pak carton packages, designed for maximum efficiency and environmental friendliness, are one small way to live smarter and to Be Carton Smart.

This holiday season, Tetra Pak wants to inspire people to make small, smart decisions when cooking for their families and stocking their pantries. Pacific Foods, a brand committed to doing the right thing for you, for the environment, and for their employees, is the perfect way to start this holiday season of thanks. 

Here are some of the products I got to try:

One of my favorite holiday dishes is Pumpkin Pie - I mean, who doesn't love it (and look forward to it all year)?! Let's be honest for a minute - I really stink at making pie crust - they always taste fine, but they look like a 3 yr old made them! ;) Definitely not my strongest suit. I like to cheat and make one of those Impossibly Easy Pies.
