Thanksgiving is right around the corner and while everyone is trying to think of ways to use the turkey leftover from the Holiday Dinner how about different ways in which to use Pumpkin.  Pumpkin itself, does not taste particularly good but when you add spices and sugar and cream and eggs it turns into something wonderful.  Here are a list of recipes featured in this blog that you can try for your own Thanksgiving Dinner or for Breakfast or Dessert on Thanksgiving Weekend.


When cooking or baking with Pumpkin be sure to use the Sugar Pie Variety.  The larger Pumpkins do not lend themselves to baked or cooked recipes.

The Ravioli can be made with Pumpkin or Butternut Squash or any Squash of your choice.  The dark leaves on top of the Ravioli are Sage.

 The Pumpkin Pie in Pecan Crust looks dark, but it is actually not burned.  In this case, the oven was too high and it baked at a much faster pace than it should have.  Luckily I took it out before it was actually burned.  Everyone loved it and it was gone by the end of dessert time.

To make the Pumpkin Pie in a Pastry Crust, use the same filling recipe as the Pie in Pecan Crust.  Simply substitute a pastry crust of your choosing.
