The coming of fall brings back memories of color changing and falling leaves, decorating for Halloween and carving pumpkins. Well this week is for pumpkins, but not the carving. Pumpkin desserts are plentiful in the fall. Most people in the USA think of pumpkin pie and turkey when you mention Thanksgiving in late November.
That may be the most famous pumpkin dessert but there many others. In fact, pumpkin is used in entrees, side dishes, soups, salads and breads. But this week I have two great uses for desserts. You can use fresh pumpkins if you have the time and sources for them, but it is just easier to use the pumpkin found in a can.
I have a recipe for "Pumpkin Cheesecake" in tomorrow's post. It is one I found that is the best. I've tried others but they just don't stand up to this one. I suggest that you make this before Thanksgiving, Christmas or other holidays and some meals arrive. You always want to test a recipe on yourself and family before trying it on guests. That goes for the second recipe of the week too.
On Thursday's post the recipe is for "Pumpkin Pudding Cake" and it is terrific. It is also very easy to make and even easier to eat.
Either one or both would be a great addition to your fall and winter menus. So be sure to try them. Then after having tasted each, you'll want to share the recipes with family and friends. Just give them my "Food Blog" link and let them enjoy these plus the 400 plus other recipes on my site.
In fact, there are other pumpkin recipes under various tabs to check out. I always make the "Pasta with Sausage and Pumpkin" recipe each fall or winter.
Well, "Happy Cooking" until next week when I'll have some more "Gluten-Free" recipes and information.
