Hi everyone!
I've got 8 pie pumpkins here and I'm looking for some new recipes! I have a great pie recipe, but I'm looking for some new ideas. Tried serving pumpkin for dinner and it didn't go over well at all! Anyone?

Hi Netty wavey
How did you prepare it when you served it for dinner? Pumpkin can be prepared in the same way as squash...many different ways!
I like the basic Maple Mashed Pumpkin.
How about Roasted Herbed Pumpkin and Harvest Vegetables?
Or Spiced Pumpkin and pepper Chowder.
Do any of these sound like something you'd like to try?
I'll post the recipe if you like. smile
Then the dessert options are endless...Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin-Pecan Squares, Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes, Pumpkin Bars with Ginger Snap Pecan Crust....
Let me know.

Thanks Bill! I think my kids might like those cookies (but without the raisins!) and we do roast the seeds.
Christina-I used the recipe that Wrennie posted here. I liked it, the kids didn't! They are not big on squash either, but they sure can eat pumpkin pie! I think my best bet is to find bread, cookie and bar recipes. My babysitter has made pumpkin ice cream and said it was really good so maybe I'll try that too.

Netty, I just made that cake roll--be sure that you unroll and frost it when it is quite warm, otherwise the cake will crack apart. Also, don't melt the butter for the frosting because you are going to need the frosting fluffy and not runny. My cake looks like a nasty blob of orange and cream colored stuff. mad mad Duh Not appetizing at all.

Wishing you good luck! thumbup
Sarah

Thanks for the tips Sarah! If I'm making my family try new stuff, it has to LOOK good or it doesn't stand a chance laugh

ahh, the cakeroll was going to be my suggestion...i'm glad you got to it first, sarah...cuz i don't have a recipe for it. an old boyfriend used to make it. he REFUSED to give the recipe - for the cake or for the filling...it was absolutely to-die-for tho!!

Sarah, you could have spooned it into dishes, topped it with whipped cream and called it "Pumkin Roll Pudding". They wouldn't have known it was a mistake! laugh

Netty, my family is the same way. Everything has to look nice and must not include the word "onion" or "pepper." I wound up freezing the dang roll in my bread pan and it turned out not-too-terrible looking. My husband tried some last night and went on and on about how good it was.


Shirley, ahh, to be creative on the fly is beyond my abilities. I'll have to remember your suggestion for next time I make a faux pas while assembling a roll cake!
