Pumpkin Palooza Redux

We did this a year ago and it was so much fun!  This year pumpkin is even more popular - if that's possible.

Have you had enough pumpkin yet with Halloween coming?  It's time to stop looking at it like a porch decoration and bring it into the kitchen!

Seriously, now is the time of year for pumpkin recipes and here at Straddling the Gap I'm trying some recipes and a decorating technique I've found in various places - Pinterest, Facebook and family recipes.  I can't guarantee they will all be great, but I promise to let you know if they aren't.  If you find the right recipes, add them to Thanksgiving or other holiday festivities.

The four recipes I'm making are all desserts.  I'm just not adventurous enough to make savory pumpkin dishes because I know my family won't give them a second glance.  Truthfully, they will be the picky taste testers on the pumpkin desserts.

So, get some cans of pumpkins, sugar, eggs, flour and a couple of mixes and get ready!

Pumpkin Palooza!
