Great Pumpkin Week

 If I don't have Halloween ideas planned by the week BEFORE Halloween - I always shelve them in my "next year" file.  This year I won't be able to share Halloween with my sweet grandkids - so I'll share a few pumpkin ideas from years past.  

Check back, and I'll post a few great ideas I've stumbled upon as I've browsed the past few weeks (again - they will go in my "next year" file!)

Pumpkin is a hot item this week... and will continue to be on everyone's mind through Thanksgiving.  I LOVE anything pumpkin - it adds a rich color, dense texture, and an earthy FALL feel to anything.  These are a few of my favorite ways to slip it into recipes.

Cream Cheese Rippled Pumpkin Loaf
Pumpkin Patch Knot Rolls

  1. Hi Anne,
    Wonderful recipes and I plan on using them this month. Yes, I know there isn't much time left, but your recipes look and sound so wonderful, I just can't help myself.
    The only problem I had with the page was with the last recipe, the Pumpkin Buns...when I clicked on the words to go to the recipe, it brought me back to the Pumpkin Face Stew page.
    I'd really like the Buns recipe?

  3. Gail - thanks for letting me know the link wasn't working. It seems to be correct now. Hope you enjoy them - they are really different (and good)
