I love Halloween and it was a "treat" finding this site. I have bookmarked it. I have a site about having a dinosaur halloween for little ones so I have been doing some searches on the subject. I like your handburgers!!

debbie said...

I am a gfc follower. I am going to try these truffles, they look really good. My favorite use for pumpkins is in a pumpkin cookie recipe that I found. It is from boston, and is over a hundred years old. I have never had a cookie that tastes anything like it.

Hi dmr301, I am so happy to hear you love the book. I'd be thrilled if you wrote a review for the book and posted it on Amazon.com.

Beth Jackson Klosterboer said...

Hi Debbie,

Oh, I love pumpkin cookies and have been searching for the perfect recipe. Would you be willing to share the recipe with me? I'd love to try them out.

Steph said...

My favorite use for a pumpkin is to carve it. I have made some really cool ones in the past. I love the looks on my kids faces when one turns out spectacular. As far as eating pumpkins it would be pumkin bread or pie. Both are delicious.

I'm a hungry halloween blog follower and my favorite thing to do with a pumpkin is to carve it and toast the seeds.

I follow you on google friend.
My favorite use of a pumkin is to play a fortune telling game with it at our yearly Halloween party. I carve slots into the pumpkin and place fortunes inside of the pumpkin and have a tiny bit of the fortune hanging out a slot. The guests take turns pulling their fortunes from the slots cut into the pumpkin.

My fave use for a pumpkin is a tradition of my boyfriend and I. We get a pumpkin and carve it together, roast the seeds, and then fill him with hay and call him Lil' Pump, and once Halloween is over, we put him out so the deer can destroy him.......destructive eh? lol

Firstly I want to thank you for the great instructions for tempering chocolate. They are the first I have found that really explains it and gives instructions that are easy to follow.
As for Halloween who doesn't like the opportunity to become someone else, maybe a dream person. Such fun. Only problem is that I usually end up eating too much treats but what the hey it is only once a year. Hee! Hee!

Favorite use for a pumpkin?! That is an extremely difficult question..
I looove pumpkin cheesecake, and regular pumpkin cake... but I think my favorite thing to do is make mini pumpkin pies (made by lining mini-muffin cups with pie crust and filling with standard pumpkin pie filling)

My favorite use for the pumpkins, are to let the kids draw, or carve them however they like, because I take the seeds out, well they do, we place them on paper towels let them dry, put them in a zipper bag, and plant them for the following yr. So they plant them, tend and water them, harvest them, carve them, and the process starts right back over. They love showing their friends what "they" did.
