Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Sorry I have been scarce on the blog lately. I have been cleaning and crafting my little heart out around here! As promised to several people, here is the recipe I got from a great lady at church for making pumpkin whoopie pies! Chocolate whoopie pies have always been a PA Dutch/Amish kind of thing so I grew up with those- I thought it was really funny when the New York Times ran an article…

Pumpkin Muffins

WOW! Another great pumpkin recipe! This one came from my friend, Cheyenne, with a beautiful blog over at Little Prairie Baby. THANK YOU!!! I baked some today (although I probably went overboard on the brown sugar sprinkled on top- I go overboard on all brown sugar) and hubby gobbled 4 of them up! He probably would have liked more, but they are safely on a plate covered in plastic wrap to take along to a…

How to Cook a Pumpkin

Our pumpkins did very well in the garden this year! We have some really big ones! We plant them just for fun/decorating, but this year they have another fate… I have always been partial to Libby’s canned pumpkin, but since there was a pumpkin shortage last year in the US- there was NO pumpkin in the stores until recently, I have decided to try eating our pumpkins. So I called my bestest friend to find…

Zucchini Alfredo

I have had some requests for this recipe, so I made it AGAIN and took a picture this time. Then, we ripped out the zucchini plants. Most of them were going to feed the pigs anyway, and they were not that good anymore, either- kinda tough. I did have some more recipes to try out, but they will have to wait for next year. So…. last one! Zucchini Alfredo4 cups young, tender zucchini- cut into…

Zucchini Bread

The zucchini continues….I am picking over two dozen a day! It is quite ridiculous!So, today I give you, zucchini bread. Not an original idea for zucchini, but it is devoured quickly year-round in my house! When I have zucchini coming out of my ears like I do right now, I shred the zucchini and put it in freezer bags to freeze for later use. Just thaw and drain the water off when you make it.…

Chocolate Chip Panacakes

My blog has been neglected.What have I done lately… gone to a zoo, an amusement park, and Kindergarten; been on our gigantic homemade slip-n-slide; and started many, many craft projects… started. Oh, I have finished things. My hubby’s jeans are all patched (for now), I have mended a few dresses (yes, there is that dirty “m” word), and my bathroom floor is scrubbed. Just nothing all that exciting. I have also been working on getting…
