This book was so much fun to write and test, and in addition to testing six different pies for the Desserts chapter I enjoyed developing new treats like Pumpkin Caramel Cinnamon Rolls, dinners like Pumpkin Apple Pecan Chicken, and desserts like Decadent Pumpkin Butter Cake

  1. My favorite way to enjoy pumpkin is while I’m using it to make yummy recipes for my family. Each member likes a different recipe, so I go through quite a bit each year making at least one treat per week while we have fresh pumpkins. The rest are put up for later, or turned into lots of breads to give as gifts.

  2. Pumpkin pie is great but what I really like is to take the pie filling and bake it in custard cups. Just makes me happy to think about those little bowls of yummy goodness.

  3. I really love to use pumpkin in savory recipes, in particular to make delicious creamy pumpkin soup or curried pumpkin soup, and to add pumpkin to chili – it’s so delicious!

  4. Right now I would say a really good pumpkin pie is my favorite…I also like roasting the seeds : D

    I am always open to trying new things….so I look forward to seeing your book and all the fun, yummy things you have come up with.

  5. Fall is my favorite season! I love the smell of the air, the crisp cool mornings, and of course Halloween.

    There is nothing like making pumpkin bread and family favorite pumpkin dump cake. I would love to know more ways to use pumpkin.

    Happy Fall!

  6. Oh, my mouth is watering right now! For me, pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup (w/lots of veggies and beef broth), and a fun pumpkin desserty dip for ginger cookies! Can’t wait to see your recipes!

  7. Actually, I don’t have any idea about pumpkin.i am from Brazil and I just moved to San Diego. We don’t have pumpkin in Brazil. I want your book sooo bad to try all the pumpkin recipes:)
    I remembered that I tried once a pumpkin soup with grounded sausages and cream fresh. It was amazing:)

  8. I love everything pumpkin, except pumpkin lattes . . Just don’t like coffee. Favorite is pumpkin cookies. Found it in my very first cookbook my mom gave me. Yes it was a Betty Crocker cook ok. Add an icing on top the cookie and then I had a piece of candy corn just to make it more festive. But truly prefer the cookies with ought the icing and the candy corn . . .then I can really taste the pumpkin!!!!!!!
