Oh, so much pumpkin goodness! I am pretty certain I will be trying a lot of these. Thank you for sharing my pumpkin fudge!
thanks for a great round-up. But i do have one quibble with your post and that is why do you say pumpkin recipe are only good until the day after Thanksgiving???? I have never understood that point of view. Pumpkin is so good why limit it to a certain time of year? i say pumpkin all year round!!!
