    I need recipes for fall that can be made inan electric skillet or stovetop any suggestions? - 10/7/2010   4:51:12 PM

    I want them all.

    I absolutely LOVE pumpkin.


    The other night, I made a blueberry cobbler to get some frozen blueberries out of my fridge. I like doing cobblers and crisps because they have proportionately more fruit to dough than cakes and pies do.


    I'll probably try the pear ginger crumble recipe first for that reason. DH will probably put ice cream on his, but I don't really care for ice cream with other desserts most of the time. It's a stand-alone and definitely a summer treat. I'm not much interested in the cold stuff in the fall and winter. - 10/6/2010   2:35:16 PM

    I've made a pumpkin cheesecake before, this recipe is a bit different, so will try this one out, but not until we are having other's over to help eat it all, so it does not sit in the fridge, "calling" to me. Healthy or not, it's still extra calories. - 9/29/2010   10:02:34 PM

    I'm vegan didn't see any vegan but opened up a few and found that the Pear Ginger Crumble is vegan just swap out the Ice Cream for a Vegan Brand.

    And the Pear with Star Anise would be considered Vegan as well.

    This is getting me into the holiday spirit time to whip up some Vegan and RAW Desserts. - 9/29/2010   5:38:00 PM

    MEL_UNRAU, That sounds good, too!

    I'm thinking of the using pumpkin pie cups for a church potluck this weekend. Think it would work in cupcake papers with a vanilla wafer on the bottom? - 9/29/2010   2:06:29 PM

    Ditto for Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake! One of the women at work is a fantastic baker and has recently treated us to Martha Stewart's Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake. It was delicious but I had only a little taste as I could feel my arteries hardening just by looking at it. I will make this tonight and take it to work for a taste test. - 9/29/2010   8:12:36 AM

    I'd love to share my favorite pumpkin recipe:
    1 box of angel food cake mix
    1 can pumpkin (or about 1.5 cups pureed pumpkin if you are like me and going to use a real pumpkin)
    1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice

    Mix the angel food cake according to directions on the box. Gently fold in the pumpkin and spice. Pour in an ungreased 9x13 and bake according to the time on the cake box. Test for doneness with a toothpick.

    It has replaced pumpkin pie in our family. I might actually try it this year by making an angel food cake recipe from scratch to avoid even more processed ingredients, but oh! how I love! - 9/28/2010   7:01:31 PM
