Just in time for Thanksgiving, I’m bringing you the ultimate of pumpkin recipes! How about a Pumpkin Whoopie Pie?! If you’re not familiar with whoopie pies, my definition of them would be, two cake-like cookies with a cream filling in-between. Chocolate and white cream are popular, but when I was at The Wilds of New England in September, a sweet young woman made these pies for all the ladies’ dessert!!! I
begged asked her if she would share her recipe, and she sweetly obliged! Continue reading “Pumpkin Monday Returns!”

Recently I mentioned that I try to keep my pantry and freezer “stock-piled” so I have things on hand and can make a meal or dessert quickly. Sometimes even the best laid plans fail! I went to make a recipe for a get-together a couple weeks ago, and realized I had run out of sugar! But…I had a cake mix and several jars of my home canned peaches in the pantry!
