It's all about the pumpkin- 4 recipes I plan to try this week

I have a confession... I'm not a huge fan of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes. The one thing I do look forward to is the use of pumpkin in recipes. I love pumpkin and usually find about 50 recipes I want to try for the Holiday. I usually only get to try one or two per year.

This week, I'm going to try to make four different recipes starring canned pureed pumpkin as the main ingredient. I will do a post on each throughout the week and the winners will go with me to Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Here's what I'll be trying (links to original recipes are in titles of each recipe):

Day one (Tomorrow - Sunday):

Day two (Monday):

Day three (Tuesday):

Day four (Wednesday):

Cream of pumpkin soup (I noticed thatthere are lots of modifications suggested for this recipe, read reviews before attempting to make)

I'm looking forward to making these!


  1. They certainly sound interesting - even though I'm not a fan of pumpkin as a whole. Agree about the Thanksgiving traditional recipes I must say! Happy cooking - and Thanksgiving, when it arrives!

  2. Pumpkin is certainly an interesting ingredient and isn't for everyone. I'm glad I have others who agree with me about the traditional Thanksgiving food =)
