Oh, I forgot to add a recipe for a cocktail I made up!

I didn't measure though.

I found some Pumpkin Pecan flavored coffee creamer. The kind I used was made by lucerne but Internatinal also makes a pumpkin pie spice creamer that would work, I'm sure. I found it in the refridgerator section. I named the drink after myself...

The Witch Next Door
Vodka
Cinnamon Schnaps (I used Goldshlager)
Pumpkin Coffee creamer
Splash of milk (to tone down the thickness of the cream)

It was YUMMY!

All of the flavored creamers make fantastic cocktails. I also LOVE gingerbread creamer with cinnamon shnapps and coffee... it tastes like the ESSENCE of Christmas.

Have fun!

Here's a recipe for pan-seared scallops with pumpkin risotto. I highly recommend that you read the reviews first before trying this recipe. The reviewers shared a lot of great tips on how to make this recipe even better.

Here's a recipe for pumpkin creme brulee:

Note: You may want to add a 1/4 cup more granulated sugar to the pumpkin custard base.

I haven't tried any of the savory pumpkin dishes that I've posted (my family and I don't care for pumpkin in savory dishes), but I have tried many of the sweet pumpkin recipes. I thought it would be nice to post lots of different pumpkin recipes to give people ideas for fall dinner parties, Thanksgiving, etc. You can never have too much pumpkin!!

Paula Deen's Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake



Cake:

1 (18 3/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 Tbsp. (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted


Filling:

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
*1 tsp. cinnamon
*1 tsp. nutmeg

*or substitute 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice


-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

-Combine the cake mix, egg and melted butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking pan.

-To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and butter and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well.

-Spread the pumpkin mixture over the cake batter and bake for 40-50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake, as the center should be a little gooey. Serve with whipped cream.

How bout butternut squash? My DH made me butternut squash ravioli with brown butter and crispy sage leaves... OMG it was good. Don't get me wrong.. it's the only meal he's ever made.. but he did great!

Also, just plain ole butternut squash with brown butter and crispy sage leaves is downright STUPENDOUS as well. There's a pasta place here called "Pastini" that serves it as a side dish for $5. It makes me so happy.

<--- tears of joy over butternut squash with brown butter and crispy sage leaves...

BNS and sage are natural partners so they also go really well with roast chicken I LOVE BNS in any form (except curried )

Good for your DH! You know, since Thanksgiving is coming up, I've been thinking a lot about sweet potatoes. (My second favorite thing to eat during the fall. ) I may turn this into a pumpkin/squash/sweet potato recipe thread. What do you think?

Dh feeds my pumpkin cravings. He brought home a piece of pumpkin angel food cake. Anyone have a recipe? Also, just bragging, but the restaurant I work at is featuring pumkpin creme brulee-haven't had it yet, but how can it not be delish?

OOh! Love sweet potatoes, too. I make a sweet potato souffle with pecan crumble on top. I will see if I can find it.
