Pumpkin Squares

1 Comment

Alice of simply decorated had a delicious-sounding recipe on her blog for pumpkin squares and I decided to give a try this afternoon.  I subbed Splenda blend sugar and Splenda blend brown sugar and fat free evaporated milk.  They are WONDERFUL!!!!  Sometimes the Splenda leaves a nasty aftertaste but with the blend, I don’t have it.  The brown sugar blend melted a little more than I would have liked but it tastes good and that’s all that matters.  Thanks for posting, Alice!

A Halloween Treat

5 Comments

I was reading Michele’s blog A Big Cup of Tea and found this recipe for Peanut Butter Cups and decided to try it!  Oh my ~ there were soooooooo good!  They were easy to make and taste so much fresher than the kind you buy.  Michele’s blog is GREAT with great recipes and some really cute crafts ~ check it out!

I made mine in regular sized muffin pans just in time for Halloween.  Thanks for posting the recipe, Michele!

Here are some Halloween pictures from last night:

We didn’t decorate too much this year ~ just a little in the front yard.  These pics were taken when it was still light out.

Blueberry Corn Toasties

17 Comments

The other day I was reading Kat’s blog, A Good Appetite , and she had a recipe that she had developed for Corn Toasties. I loved blueberry corn toasties when I was growing up and my kids loved them when they were growing up. I used to buy boxes of them when I did see them and stick them in my freezer. I haven’t been able to buy them here in Virginia ever.

So, I wondered if adding blueberries to them would work. See for yourself:

Do they taste the same? No, they taste BETTER! No mass produced flavor in these. They are delicious.

I made the recipe as Kat had posted. I was afraid the berries would break up if I folded them in so after I got the corn mixture in the pan, I sprinkled the top with the berries and gently pressed them in the dough a bit so they wouldn’t roll around. I ate one as soon as the pan came out of the oven and that was good. When I toasted up two of them for breakfast this morning and slathered on the butter, the flavor took me right back.

Please check out Kat’s blog (linked above) for the recipe (also linked above). It’s a WINNER!

Thank you, Kat!
