This looks so yummy! I was thrilled to find pumpkin at Kroger yesterday. I have some cookies I have been dying to make!

psst! Canned pumpkin is made from...wait for it....PUMPKINS! Really! It's true! And there are piles of those at every grocery store right now. ;)
And that cake looks fantastic! The orange in the frosting sounds especially yummy. Maybe I will make the cake and share a picture with you. Oh, and a piece of the cake too.

That looks yummy! I hunted all over for canned pumpkin last week to make pumpkin blueberry muffins - no luck!

I looked at Walmart the other day for pumpkin and they don't carry it until Oct they said!! But I did find it at Fred Myer's (Kroger brand).

I make my own pumpkin puree. It is really easy. Also, don't be fooled by people telling you that you can only eat certain kinds of pumpkins! You can eat any kind! The white ones (lumina), the carving ones (jack-o-lanterns), the pie ones (sweetie pie), and even the mini pumpkins (jack-be-littles)!
