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 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.

My future son-in-law requested this pie as his birthday dessert this year.  I'm not a fan of key lime pie so I've never made it, actually I've never had more than a bite.  The birthday boy said it was great, and it tasted just like key lime pie.   That's good enough for me!

I picked up a cookbook at the thrift store and was thumbing through it when this recipe caught my eye.  If you like strong orange flavor then you might like this just the way it is.  I thought it was a bit overwhelming. I would replace the orange juice with water, and probably only use one can of oranges.  Might even cut back on the sherbet and use more whipped topping.

Since it's just me eating any watermelon I buy, I usually end up throwing out some.  This was a great way to use up any leftover watermelon and a nice refreshing treat.

Instead of buying birthday gifts for my family members, I make them a dish and dessert of their choice.  My oldest daughter requested this for her dessert.  Since this dessert is very rich, a small piece is very satisfying.  I would definitely half the recipe if I make it again, even though it was amazingly good.
