The Great Pumpkin Trifecta

I'm slightly obsessed with pumpkin. In the past eight days, I've made three pumpkin recipes.

For you adventurous types (and you won't be disappointed), try the Pumpkin Lasagna. Randy turned his nose up at the idea but ate two big pieces the night I made it! :)

Fresh out of the oven

For a wonderful fall treat, try the trusted and true Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing. Martha wouldn't lead you astray, at least not with this recipe. But be ready for a time commitment, you can't whip these up in an hour. The recipe makes six dozen, and after baking them - it's on to frosting.



Last but certainly not least in my book is good ol' pumpkin bread. I use the Women of Great Taste (Wichita Jr. League cookbook) recipe. I've been making it for 10 years and it's always been heavenly. Occasionally, I put a topping on it too - but not tonight. I put it in the oven at 11 p.m.

Baked to perfection if I do say so myself!

so when are we making fresh mozarella? :-) I have to talk to both you gals this week. I am down to the wire with the whole logo thing. :-( I keep procrastinating.

Carrie - you tell me darling! Let me know on the logo.

MKA - thank you! Thanks for stopping by. You know I love to cook. I have so many in the que - must get to blogging!

omg, those all look so good. Should I make some pumpkin bread while Andrew naps instead of showering!? Try this recipe. Sounds a little wild, but sooooo good. I use 3 pieces of Golden Curry (Hot) instead of the paste, and I think it's even better when you make homemade 5-spice...

I do have the recipe, thanks. I ended up making a diff one, though - from America's test kitchen. Turned out great! I know, I love pumpkin too.
