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…

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

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.…
