The Wonderfully Versatile Pumpkin — Final Installment!


It is a little bitter sweet for us to be making our last “Versatile Pumpkin” post but we are excited for our Halloween posts in October. We hope you have enjoyed the recipes as much as we have and this weeks recipes are just as fabulous!
Christy made a casserole IN A PUMPKIN! It reminds me of Beef and Rice Stuffed Peppers. Delicious! Amy’s cookies were a happy accident and the test kitchen is still standing. šŸ™‚ Click on the pictures to see the recipes.

The Versatile Pumpkin Brings You — Pumpkin Alfredo Pasta!


We are a day late but as we say,Ā Ā “better late than never”.Ā  Christy has been sick, she will be adding her recipe this weekend.

This month I have only made desserts with pumpkin and I wanted to be adventurous like Christy and decided to make an entree with pumpkin.

Pumpkin Chili! Pumpkin really is versatile :)


As Amy explained yesterday, I was having some difficulty finding canned pumpkin. I finally found some in a small local grocery store because I couldn’t find any in the big, main local grocery stores, or Wal-Mart, so thank you Sunflower Market! You saved my behind in blogland!

Apparently Starbucks and Einstien Brothers have the monopoly on purchasing canned pumpkin before October!

Amy actually found this recipe and pinned it for me on pinterest. What a great friend she is to have created a board just for me! I thought it sounded promising and wanted to try it out. I made it for dinner last night (just couldn’t get it posted until now) and I am here to tell you that it was very delicious. Not a strong pumpkin taste at all, very subtle. I am also including a recipe for Creamed Corn Cornbread.

So click on the picture below and try out the recipe!

Pumpkin Ice Cream — From the Versatile Pumpkin


Pumpkin Ice Cream

Christy has run into the same problem that I had last week.Ā  She used her last can of pumpkin puree last week, that she had bought last Christmas, and went to the store to buy some more this week.Ā  She couldn’t find any puree or pie filling!Ā  Therefore, we are only posting one recipe this week and crossing our fingers that Christy can find some pumpkin puree this weekend, because she has a great recipe for pumpkin chili.

We hope you give this pumpkin ice cream a try — the recipe can be found here at The Wonderfully Versatile Pumpkin.

It’s Thursday! Which means it’s time for another delicious pumpkin recipe for this month. I chose a Pumpkin Chowder because it was cool and drizzly today and it seem appropriate weather for a hot soupy type meal šŸ™‚
