Pumpkin Dip

The weather has finally turned cool, it's raining today, and it feels like Fall has finally arrived in my part of the country. That means it's time for Fall recipes like persimmons, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes. Hmmm, yummy.

So, today I have an appetizer for you. It's Pumpkin Dip and wonderful for those Fall get togethers. I swear it's so addicting, you won't want to stop eating it. If you love pumpkin pie, you will love this dip.

Pumpkin Dip
4 C. powdered sugar
2 - 8 oz. pkg of cream cheese, room temperature
1 - 15 oz. canned pumpkin
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg

Combine the powdered sugar and cream cheese until well blended. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator to chill.

To dip, use graham crackers, Teddy Graham cookies, apple slices, and vanilla wafers.

Deep Fried Beer

My husband and I have always talked about all of the unusual deep fried foods that cooks come up with. We've all heard about Deep Fried Twinkies and Oreos. A year or so ago, someone at the Indiana State Fair figured out how to deep fry Pepsi. It was at that point that my husband asked, "Why can't they deep fry beer?"

Well, a chef in Texas has now accomplished that. According to an article on the Field & Stream web site, the beer is placed inside of a ravioli type dough and quickly deep fried. The Texas Alcohol Commission has ruled that you must be 21 years of age to consume the product.

My husband is happy, but why do I have a feeling I will come home one day to find him in the kitchen trying to deep fry beer?

I've been so neglectful....

....and I'm sorry. I have been way too busy to do anything that is fun, like this blog. I hope to get that fixed soon. Today, I wanted to give you a hint to help make your homemade cookies a little softer.

To get those wonderful soft homemade cookies, all you have to do is alter your recipe by using 1/4 C less sugar, no salt, and add a box of Jello Instant vanilla pudding to the batter. Yum-Yum.

Also, coming next month, I'm going to hold a contest for my readers. I'm not sure what it will be yet, but one of the prizes will be a copy of my ebook, "Love, Lies & Deceit." Check back in October for more details.
