Pumpkin desserts

My PC is running too slow lately. I haven't been able to comment your sites without clicking twice. And sometimes my comments go through twice. I'm sorry for this and still trying to fix this problem.

Hope everybody is having a great week. My son decided to be a spider-man for this Halloween. We looked for a Michael Jackson costume. Only could find them at Target but, they were all WAY too big. Then he changed his mind and decided to be a SPIDERMAN!!!

My hubby loves this traditinal Turkish dessert. He kept asking me last week.
Yesterday, I made it!

KABAK TATLISI (Turkish Pumpkin Dessert)

This is traditinal, popular Turkish dessert and very easy to make.
1 small pumpkin(peeled)
2 cups sugar
4 cloves
1 lemon juice
crushed walnuts or coconut(grated)

Cut the pumpkin into big chunks, place in a wide saucepan, layered with the sugar.
Sprinkle with the water and leave to stand for a few hours until pumpkin is juicy. Place the pan over a low heat, add cloves and lemon juice.The cloves give a nice spicy warmth to the syrup. Cover it and cook until tender. Arrange the pumpkin pieces on the serving dish. Let it cool. Sprinkle with crushed walnuts or grated coconut. I also spread some whipped cream on top. Ready to serve!
Yep, my hubby will love me even more for this one. Hehe..

If you have canned pumpkin here is another easy recipe;


I love pumpkin, cinnamon, nuts and coconut combination. And I usually have coconut cookies in my pantry :)

14 oz. coconut cookies (I used leftover coconut cookies)

15 oz. pumpkin (canned)

1 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp ginger

(or 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice)

whipped ceam, crushed mix nuts(unsalted)

Break cookies in pieces. In a bowl combine pumpkin, sugar and spices. Add cookie pieces and mix it. Place the mixture in Pyrex pan. Cover with whipped cream, and top with crushed nuts.

Have a great week!!!

    same topics discussed here? I'd really love to be a part of community where I can get advice from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!

  19. Hey there outstanding blog! Does running a blog such as this take a lot
    of work? I have very little knowledge of
    computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyways, should you have any suggestions or tips for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this
    is off subject but I just had to ask. Thank you!
