I am trying to make a pumpkin treat once every weekend in october! Here is this weekends’: Thanks Girl who ate everything
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2/3 cup pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- ¾ cup flour
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- powdered sugar for sprinkling
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs on high speed for 5 minutes. Slowly add the white sugar, pumpkin, and lemon juice and mix well. Add the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, ginger, and nutmeg and mix until combined.
- Grease and flour cookie sheet. Pour batter into a rectangular shape (don’t fill the sheet), leaving space on the sides for the batter to expand while cooking. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Sprinkle ¼ cup powdered sugar on terrycloth towel.(I used papertowels) I would put more just to ensure that your roll doesn’t stick to your cloth. Loosen roll with spatula and flip onto the towel. Gently roll with the towel rolled up inside it as well and let it cool in the fridge. This step is to get the pumpkin roll in the correct shape while cooling.
- While roll is cooling, prepare filling by mixing cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl. When roll has cooled in the fridge, unroll it, remove the towel, and spread the filling evenly inside. Roll it back up and refrigerate. It’s really hard to not crack the dough when rolling but if it does don’t stress because the cracks fix themselves when it refrigerates. Also, slightly dampening the cloth helps. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut into 1 inch slices to serve.
I overcooked mine so it came out not perfect circular but tasted fantastic!!! Success!
As I prepared for the Second Contract with DCL, I was running around trying to finish all the things I wanted to do with my vacation. One of them was to make these Lemon cupcakes, a Paula Dean recipe. I love lemon desserts so I was quite excited to dig into this one. I got all the ingredients earlier in the week and then realized we had no lemon, so that one was a no go. The week flew by and all the sudden it was a day before I was supposed to leave at 5 am for my flight. The recipe called for four eggs and of course we only had three. So I looked up egg substitutes and used 1 tsp baking powder + 1 1/2 TBS water + 1 1/2 TBS oil. BAM! I had finished packing and this was the last thing to do on list. So at 10:30 the night before I was meant to leave I was baking these little rascals with the help of my best friend.
This recipe came out SO GREAT. Super easy and they were tasty with and without the glaze.
I saw this one of the many times I was scouring the internet, and I LOVED the idea. The concept is you make bread and it takes ten days, at the end of the ten days, you divide the batter into four, and give it to three friends, and bake a cake with it your self.
Here is the how to:
It feels so cool to make this cake it is so Old Fashioned, and Fun! What a great way to bake, and realizing how timing is so important to baking. I am a bit nervous making the starter, but I think I did alright, I am on day three, and my herman is VERY bubbly, I think I added to much yeast… I have not decided who I am going to give my Herman portions too yet either, I want to make sure it is someone who can keep him alive!! I am hoping who ever I give it too, will give it back to me, so I can make more.
What is awesome about this, when it is finished, so will my Whole30, so I Will be able to enjoy the Cake! :)
I will keep updating as the ten days progress! Can’t wait to meet & eat Herman.
Update: The ten days is OVER! and so is Herman! After ten days he was looking good and I baked him into a tasty cake!!
The cake has a very unique taste because it it is sourdough, and next time I would like to just bake the bread, and not add any ingredients.
Here is Herman before the oven
Herman all baked and tasty!
I divided Herman up and tried to decide on what Loved Ones would love him the most. First I picked Audrey and Amy (my baby cousins). They were SO EXCITED to receive herman. They were speaking of him as if he was a real person and Amy says “Look at his bubbles Lindsey HE IS SOOO CUTEE”
Here is Herman going home with Audrey and Amy- look how excited.
Her face covered in chocolate from Chocolate Peppermint cookies.
The next person is Vavo! She loved the idea of it and thought it was so funny that I gave her a gift that she had to make. She said it was the most unique thing she has ever received.
There are so many other people I would like to give Herman to but I only have one more left, and no car :( so I am hoping herman makes it somewhere soon!
I hope Herman comes back to my one day, and we get to hear all about his new adventures!
This was the name of my last event. Cookies and Cocktails. Here is the invite I sent out to everyone via FB:
So heres the deal, does anyone actually ever get to use all those recipes you PIN? NOW YA DO. This party idea came to me like a dream.
The concept is sort of based off of a Cookie Swap. Back in the day my family and I would make dozens of cookies and bring them for the family, We would all swap a dozen and come home with 8 do
So I wanted to make something different for my Cookie and Cocktails Party. I have been debating this cookie for a while now. It seemed like it had a lot of steps, but when actually making it, its painless. I got this recipe from Once Upon a Plate. They were so tasty and I LOVED EM!
Here’s the recipe-
I got this Recipe from the Domestic Rebel
I had left over caramel sauce from my White Trash Cake . When this came up on my reader, I thought it would be the perfect way use up the rest of the carmel sauce so I didn’t have to watch my brother dip his entire apple and let it run down his chin anymore.
These bars WERE. SO. DELISH. Just the right kind of consistency, it tasted so wonderful. So Goo-ey melt in your mouth. I HIGHLY recommend these. These will be accompanying me to every party I attend that requires bringing food. I mean this one is REALLY up there.
I also had a very interesting day, these bars will always remind me of this day. It was rainy, so I decided to sit and read, and blog, but of course my day was taken over by blogging, then I decided I needed to go to Target, to pick supplies, to bake things, to blog, obviously. First of all I was food shopping in Target-even though I rarely do this because in Stop and Shop I know where everything is, they have everything I need, I use the easy shopper and get gas points. But I didn’t feel like making the two minute drive to stop and shop becuase I was already in Target. So while looking for my ingredients and cringing every time I looked at the price, I kept running into this STUPID COUPLE. They were standing in the baking aisle, basically making out. This means I couldn’t get to the cake mixes, or the chocolate chips, or anything I needed to make these bars, I stood there, waited, and I couldn’t TAKE IT ANYMORE. In between the disgusting kissing, the girl was like “what do you need to make cookies?”. I almost slapped her. She picked up a Cookie Mix. Then they were with me in the butter isle, geting a small butter, and then eggs, only picking six eggs. In my way in every aisle. Going home so they could “bake” cookies together. They DROVE ME NUTS, First of all PEOPLE. thats not baking, baking ur dumb cookie mix and thinking your so cute baking your little cookies together and being a couple. Who doesn’t already have eggs and butter?
On the drive home my car just stopped working. just stopped, in the middle of a road/ intersection happened to be on my street. My brother and my dad were both out of town which left me basically stranded. My uncle joe, who is my neighbor came to save me. Luckily there is still nice people in the world. Which is always a wonderful reminder and makes me want to help others when someone helps you! I was not stopped for one minute before a nice man pulled over and said he would really like to help me be pushed out of the street. He was young and cute. maybe my soul mate. probably not. Then another women stopped and asked if I needed help but my Uncle Joe was on his way, and he got there in like 2.2 seconds
Did I mention it was raining? So we decided the car was dead. He drove me home and I promptly baked these bars. Even though this whole thing really didn’t put me in a bad mood at all. I decided yesterday that I was going to sell my car before I went and worked on the cruise, and someone already wanted to buy it. So it was only fitting that it broke down. Now its the age old question- fix it, or scrap it. Who knows. But this dessert is seriously a great pick me up. So I am going to call them Pick up bars, they can pick up and funk you find yourself in. The bar made of cake mix was so awesome. So much better than a blondie brownie, they were nice and moist.
Heres the recipe:
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 bag miniature marshmallows- I only used half the bag
1 & 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
About 1/2 cup caramel sundae sauce
Very simple, Mix cake mix eggs butter sugar in a bowl. Place in 9×13 greased pan. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes, until golden brown and just starting to harden in the middle.
Take out and pour butterscotch chips and marshmallows over the whole thing and place back into the oven for five minutes or until marshmallows are puffy. I did this, and then put my broil on high and toasted the top of the marshmallows and I was so proud of the golden brown toast I got on them. Usually when toasting marshmallows, which is always the final step in any recipe, I burn them, and then all the hard work on the recipe before it is RUINED.
After its cooled Drizzle on the caramel sauce. DELISH. I can’t get enough. EVERYBODY needs to try before they die.
