Love Me Some Pumpkin!

Sharing my love of all things PUMPKIN here!!

Up first are these:

Have you had these?

My daughter told me about them so I had to try them!

They did not disappoint!

Toast them and spread with butter!

They are fabulous!!!

Only one grocery store in our area carries them
 so, I had friends
looking everywhere for them!

They found them and now I have a few packs in my freezer!

Next up are these:

I am NOT a big flavored coffee drinker.

I drink my coffee black.

BUT, my mom gave me these and they are GREAT for a chilly afternoon!

Just a touch of fall!

Do you make PUMPKIN DIP?

It's my favorite!!!

2- 8oz. Cream Cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
1- 30 oz. can pumpkin pie mix
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
(makes 7 cups)

Using a mixer,
mix the powdered sugar with the cream cheese.
Add remaining ingredients.

Now yall, you can use gingersnaps or graham crackers.


I ONLY use these from Trader Joes':
They are THE BEST I have ever had!!

Mom's Pumpkin Bread is another favorite!

Our family has made this for years and years!

We love it with cream cheese spread on it. 

You can add chocolate chips to it too!

3 cups sugar
1 cup salad oil
4 eggs
1 can (2 cups) pumpkin (not pie mix)
3 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
2/3 cup water

Cream sugar and oil. 
Add eggs and pumpkin.
Mix the above.
Sift and add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture
alternately w/water.

Pour into TWO greased and floured loaf pans.

Bake at 350 for one hour.

Remove from pans after 10 minutes.


One more thing.

Have you had these?

I just bought them yesterday at Target

So I haven't tried them.

But, they are pumpkin

So, what's not to love?

Do you share my love of all things pumpkin?



And yes, I do drink this crack:

I think we are a Pumpkin Loving Family! Of course I will add Coffee-Mate Pumpkin Spice Creamer to the list! For those of you who do not know, you can buy several of these and freeze. Glad you enjoyed the Coffee! Going to find the muffins today.
If you happen to have an old Paula Deen cookbook (green one with her and her 2 sons on front).. Titled "The Lady & Sons, Too!, look at the top of page 217.
Oh my I am making this!!! Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle!!!!!! I have the recipe if you can't find it.
Love, Mom
