Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

I hardly every order dessert when we go out to dinner. My husband knows that there are two exceptions. I will almost definitely order dessert if there is a bread pudding or creme brulee on the menu. Years ago, after eating pumpkin bread pudding at a restaurant, I...

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

This is me and my friend Nancy. When we were in 9th grade, Nancy brought these Chocolate Crinkle Cookies to school for a bake sale she had signed up for. I had never seen these before and thought they were delicious! So Nancy and I decided to hide them in our locker...

Creamy Chicken Harvest Soup

Creamy Chicken Harvest Soup

I really LOVE soup, and this time of the year is the best because it's a great time to eat soup. THIS soup is one of my favorites. It is so different from all the other soups. You may use whatever veggies you like. The original recipe used yellow summer squash, but I...

Creamy Sausage and Potato Soup

Creamy Sausage and Potato Soup

This soup will chase away the chill of any blustery day. Rich, creamy and SO DELICIOUS. I prefer to use turkey sausage, especially now that you can get it in Italian sausage. The flavor is fantastic. Start by browning the sausage. Use cooking spray if you are using...

Pumpkin Mac & Cheese

Pumpkin Mac & Cheese

My 15-year-old son LOVES homemade Mac & Cheese. He asks me several times a week if we are having it for dinner. I try not to make it more than 1-2 times a month, and I like to make different variations of it. This Pumpkin version does not taste like pumpkin, but...

Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes

Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes

Ok. These are actually mini muffins. And I used to make them full size, and you can too. BUT. My family likes them as minis and before too long everyone started calling them donut holes. They pretty easy to make...just mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and all...
