Holla at ya, booth ladies. I think this blog is going to be fun. Check out my favorite pumpkin recipe and hear me now and believe me later when I tell you it is crazy easy. I'm excited to see the other recipes, too. Marilyn has a TON. Her awesome cookbook has an entire pumpkin section! That's what I'm talking about.

Hey I have a post I'd like to see. How do you take the waist in on a pair of pants? I often have to take my pants to the tailor for $12-16 a pop for this seemingly simple alteration. How do I do it myself?

This is my new favorite way to use pumpkin...pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon syrup. The perfect fall breakfast!! Give them a try:

Hi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm so glad you did! Otherwise, I wouldn't have known about this great blog!

I've just recently learned to enjoy pumpkins (yes, hard to believe what I've missed all these years LOL). I've attempted making my own pumpkin soup. It's edible but not fantastic. Hope I'll learn more about pumpkins here.

Once again, thank you so much!

Pumpkin Cookies


* 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box spice cake mix
* 1 (15 ounce) can solid-pack pumpkin (the small can)
* 1 pkg. (12 ounce) chocolate chips (either semi-sweet or milk)
* 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional) or chopped pecans (optional) or 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
* 1 cup cream cheese frosting (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F.
Spray cookie sheets lightly with vegetable spray (Pam).
In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and pumpkin with a fork or mixer until well blended; stir in chocolate chips, nuts or raisins, if desired.
Drop by large rounded spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet; they don't flatten out much so however you place them on the sheet is pretty much how they'll look after baking.
Bake for 8 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of your cookies.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for up to 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Frost, if desired.
How many cookies you get depends on how large you make them of course - just increase your baking time if making larger cookies (it's truly difficult to burn these, but they will get crispier & less moist); Mine, made with a medium size cookie scoop, take 13-15 minutes to bake and yield about 3 dozen.

ASKTHEBOOTH!!! So I hear that someone can enter the apron drawing by "asking the booth" that true? I love cooking but I don't have any pumpkin recipes, other then the usual pumpkin pie or "dinner in a pumpkin" (only when mom makes it....which hasn't happened for a while-insert sad face here).


1 med.-large pumpkin
1 1/2 lbs. hamburger
1 medium onion diced
2 cups celery sliced thin
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 can mushrooms, drained or 8 oz fresh washed and sliced
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 C. rice (pre-cooked)
salt and pepper to taste

Cut a "hat" on the pumpkin. Clean out pumpkin removing all the seeds, strings and other unwanted debris.
Brown ground burger and onions together. Stir in celery, soy sauce, mushrooms and soup. Simmer 5 minutes. Stir in Rice.Taste for Salt and Pepper.
Put mixture into pumpkin, replace "hat".
Place on a cookie sheet. Bake uncovered 1 hour at 375 degrees. Pumpkin will be soft and scooping some of the Pumpkin out with each serving is fun. Serves about six.
(some people add a few tablespoons of brown sugar and water chestnuts...but my mama doesn't as far as I can remember)
