It's all About the Pumpkin

Several years ago my fall prize was this pumpkin that went full term. I nurtured it along checking several times a day making sure it wasn't a feast for the deer.  When the time came to trim it I was definitely attached to this baby and quite reluctant to give up my mommy duties. But in the end it was repurposed for Halloween decor 
and later into pumpkin puree. There's something about the season of Fall that brings out a sleuth of pumpkin recipes for cooking and baking.  Ever Ready has jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon with some all time favorites that were previously posted.

Remember back in 2o13 when I did the pumpkin showdown to copycat Starbuck's prized pumpkin bread ? Well I came pretty close to the real thing with this recipe.
