  1. OH MY GOSH...

  2. Oh goodness, this is THE best pumpkin cookie recipe ever:

    -1/2 cup shortening
    -1/2 cup sugar
    -1 egg
    -1/2 cup pumpkin
    -1 cup flour
    -1/2 tsp salt
    -1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    - 1/8 tsp ginger
    -1/4 tsp nutmeg
    -2 tsp baking powder
    -1/2 cup raisins (optional)
    -1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

    -4 oz of cream (1/2 package)
    -1/4 cup butter, softened
    - 1 tsp vanilla
    -2 1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar

    Basically mix all cookie ingredients and bake on a greased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Beat frosting ingredients until smooth. Let cool and frost. I'm sure you could figure out a way to make this healthier if you wanted :)

  3. I would love to know where you got those amazing sunglasses. Hope you have a fun relaxing weekend.

  4. Cutest kid ever! Besides your other one, of course.

    Loathe bananas, but love the sungoggles and the toddler!

    You rock hard.

  5. Here's my favorite pumpkin cake. It also works with an equivalent quantity of cooked sweet potatoes.

    Spiced Pumpkin Cake

    2 14 oz cans of pumpkin (or 32 oz fresh)
    2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cups sugar
    1 cup vegetable oil
    4 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

    Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 325°F. Spray 12-cup Bundt pan with nonstick spray, then generously butter pan. Sift dry ingredients. Put pumpkin in bowl; add sugar and oil. Using an electric mixer, beat until smooth. Add eggs 2 at a time, beating for about 1 minute after each addition.

    Add flour mixture; beat just until blended. Beat in vanilla. Transfer batter to prepared pan.

    Bake cake until tester inserted near center comes out clean, about 1 hour 5 minutes. Cool cake in pan on rack 15 minutes. Using small knife, cut around sides of pan and center tube to loosen cake. Turn out onto rack; cool completely.
