Good recipes to share with friends.
It’s amazing that pumpkin pie filling is available all year around, and yet, we all have the willpower to wait until autumn. When you take in that whiff of those pumpkin spices, you know it’s been worth the wait.
One blog reader pointed me toward these amazing vegan cupcakes. I tried them immediately and was thoroughly impressed by what came out: Wonderfully moist and fluffy treats! They were so delicious I made them twice. The first time I made them with the non-vegan versions of the ingredients, and then I decided to try it as recommended. Both were great, so all you have to do is bake them up to suit your needs.
Something I haven’t done in many years is carve a pumpkin. October is usually a busy month and making a costume usually takes more than enough time. However, if I did carve a pumpkin I’d make it a Tetris pumpkin or a Cylon pumpkin. As you can see, I’m a sucker for moving lights. However, these unusual pumpkins are also quite impressive (thanks Mom for finding that one). What other cool things have you seen or done with pumpkins?
I think a perfectly fun song for today is “Pumpkin & Paisley” by The Spinto Band. They’re one of those amazing bands who formed in high school and have stuck together for nearly 20 years, coming out with new music on a pretty consistent basis, and it’s all fun! They’re an impressive group for sure.
Now, onto fun with pumpkins and frosting!
Cute as a Pumpkin Cupcakes
