Vegetable Pie

Checkout the vegetable pie I made. It is featured in the Gatehouse Holiday Cookbook

It looked better than it tasted. The recipe was a tad off. But I should have known better than to use all the sesame oil that the recipe asked for. Not sure where the original recipe was from, it was something we were asked to make and photograph for the Cookbook.
