Pumpkinpalooza! 2011

It's time for Pumpkinpalooza!

Can you believe it's Thanksgiving week already?  My daughter got home from college around midnight last night!  I'm really excited to have her here until the end of the week!  
Here's some of the tried and true pumpkin recipes we enjoy.  We'll be making up most of these this week and throughout the holiday season.  Most of these started out as standard recipes using standard grocery store ingredients but I've tried to change them up a bit to use more traditional, whole foods that make some of the "treats" a little more healthy.  I'd love to hear any ideas you may have to make these recipes more "real."

Much herbal love,


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to You & Yours...

  2. Hi there.

    I'd love to help w/ the healthifying of your desserts if you really want advice :-). First, go whole grain on the flours. And the brown sugar could be replaced by honey or Sucanat. The sucanat is really nice.

    Thanks, Adrienne. I love sucanat and rapadura! If I don't have those on hand, I add a little molasses to my evap cane juice.


Thanks for visiting The Journal! I love hearing from you!
