Turkey-Pumpkin Meatloaf

"I was hungry for meatloaf and thought I had all of the ingredients on hand to make my old standby from Quaker Oats cookbook (which I make with turkey instead of beef). Lo and behold what I thought was tomato sauce lurking in the back of the pantry turned out to be something else. I didn't want to go out to the store and I dislike catsup in my meatloaf.

Pumpkin Muffins filled With Spiced Marshmallow Cream

This is such an easy recipe because you start off with spice cake mix. You can mix and match whatever flavors you want to add in. We love carrot cake, so raisins, nuts and coconut are a must! Once you fill them with the spiced marshmallow filling, they become show stoppers." - Didi

My daughter had a second piece just for the topping!" - Gail

Pumpkin Whole Wheat Fluffy Biscuit

"I was thinking about an individual pumpkin bread, something easy-to-serve, so decided to try this change to my favorite biscuit recipe.

Very moist and lightly sweet, unless you add a topping or sweet extra!" - Sandi

Cindy's Pumpkin Cake

Creamy and smooth, the frosting is lick the spatula clean good. It has a hint of tanginess and butter flavor that complements the pumpkin cake." - Mary Louise

Pumpkin Pudding Mousse"This is a family favorite made all the better because...

Pumpkin Pudding Mousse

"This is a family favorite made all the better because it's low-fat and healthy! Pumpkin is an excellent source of fiber and vitamins.

Glazed Pumpkin Bars

"These pumpkin bars should have a warning label because we couldn't stop eating them! They are rich, moist and melt in your mouth.

Pumpkin Risotto

"I love Italian cuisine, and one of my favorite dishes is risotto. A good risotto can be made with Arborio rice and basically prepared in the same way. Rice coated in butter and olive oil, then simmering stock is added one ladleful at a time. What I love about making risotto is it can be flavored with an endless variety of ingredients. If you love making risotto, you’ll love my Pumpkin Risotto; it’s creamy and full of pumpkin flavor." - Carol

Crock Pot Pumpkin and Turkey Chili
