Let me know if you try it and how it turn out! Also, if you are looking for a certain type of recipe (main dish, a snack for a holiday openhouse, dessert, side dish, etc) let me know! I'm not giving any guarantees but I will try to help you out!

3 c. sugar
1 c. Oil ( can substitute applesauce for 1/2 the oil)
2 c. pumpkin

I've finally done it!

Yes, that's right! I have finally stepped out and created my own blog. After months and months of reading everyone else's blogs and signing up for contests as a non-blogger, I have finally done it! I am not sure why I haven't done it sooner. Goodness knows, I am always looking for a good forum to show off my latest baby pics! So welcome to all and let the fun begin!
