I had a recipe for spiced pumpkin cake years ago, but I wanted to dress it up a bit.  I was thinking more like a pumpkin version of a Boston Cream Pie.  This is what it turned out to be.  The cake is so rich and moist, unfortunately I was not able to get a good photo of the finished product.  This would make a great Thanksgiving dessert.

It's that time of year where everything is coming up pumpkin.  I'm not sure if I love Fall because of all the pumpkin goodies or if I love pumpkin so much that I can't wait for Fall to get here.  A simple traditional treat with the flavors of Fall is sure to please all.

My Mom use to make stuffed peppers when I was a kid, of course I hated them.  I really didn't care for bell peppers until just recently.  I didn't want to make the traditional stuffed pepper with rice and ground beef, so this is my version of a stuffed pepper.  It was quite tasty.

My daughter gave me a huge bag of frozen strawberries that she was not going to use.  I'm not really a fan of strawberries myself, but of course I couldn't let them go to waste.  A friend of mine is dieting with me and she was craving dessert so I made this for her.  The texture of the cake is similar to a tart rather than a cake.

This recipe looked so good and so simple to make.  I found it to be a bit bland.  The original recipe called for cream cheese and I substituted it with the greek yogurt cream cheese, this was probably the reason for it being bland.  The fat in original cream cheese would have gave it more flavor.

Growing up in New England of course I love lobster rolls, or as more commonly pronounced 'lobstah' rolls.  There seems to be some very strong opinions on what exactly a lobster roll consist of.  I like them both ways.  Mine are "poor man's" because I don't use lobster at all but instead imitation crab.  Hey don't hate, I'm in land-locked Oklahoma and lobster is very expensive here.
