8 Great Pumpkin Recipes

My friend H and I were talking at the bus stop last week about how we can't get enough of pumpkin things this time of the year.  Perhaps it is the pumpkins gracing nearly every home, subliminally saying "mmm...pumpkins."  Perhaps it is back-to-back holidays that share a pumpkin decoration.  Nope, I just think it is that pumpkin tastes good.

I mean, how many foods fall under this description:  a "power food" vegetable, full of vitamins and fiber, great in sweet foods, but also savory too, and tastes darn delicious?  Not many.

I heart pumpkin.

Here are my...

8 Great Pumpkin Recipes:

Pumpkin Cookies:  Use canned pumpkin to naturally color this frosting and give it a great flavor:

Perfectly Roasted Pumpkins Seeds: Ok, not pumpkin flavored, but my favorite part of carving pumpkins!

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie:  My newest, and current favorite, I can't get enough of these!

Pumpkin Pasta Sauce: Penne pasta served with a savory pumpkin sauce.  You can definitely use sausage rather than the mushrooms, especially if have an anti-mushroomite in your house.

Pumpkin Butter, Slow Cooker:  Spread it on toast or crackers, or my favorite, stir it into your oatmeal!

Pumpkin Dip:  Mixed with yogurt and spices, plus a little honey, this dip is great for Graham Crackers, apple slices or pretzels!

Pumpkin Seed Brittle: Something different with the pumpkin seeds!

Black Bean Soup, Slow Cooker:  Surprise!  There's nearly two cups of pureed pumpkin in this tasty soup!


Happy Pumpkin Eating!

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
