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.

I first made this dish about 3 years ago and apparently I had a photo of it on my computer, but did not have the recipe.  This one came out a little different looking but I think I used different seasonings the last time.  It's a great way to curb the turkey craving anytime of year.  Having turkey sandwiches the next day is a bonus.

I'm pretty sure Paula Deen and I have the same palate, I just wish I had her imagination and skills.  This corn casserole was so yummy!  I added the green chiles and only used 1/2 of the cheese and creamed corn that it called for.  I also substituted the sour cream with greek no-fat yogurt (my new love).  I will definitely be making this again.

I love everything that has to do with pumpkin, including the seeds.  My two sisters and their families went skiing in Colorado over Christmas break. Apparently The Queen (older sister) brought some of these on the trip with her.  So, at request of the younger sister I made a batch.  Since The Queen lives 2 hours away.  I'm so glad I got the recipe from her, these are amazing!  No need for frosting, really no need for the powdered sugar either but a plain muffin doesn't make for a pretty picture.
