Pumpkin Rice with Apricots
This was a great change from the regular mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. I used 3/4 cup of rice and cooked it for only 12 minutes at first to make it more like a pilav. I used only 1/2 cups of apricots. I did add 1/2 cup of slivered almonds which gave the recipe a much more crunchy texture. The school principal's wife asked for the recipe.

Sarah's Applesauce
I live in a country without applesauce. This recipe has saved my life. It's now my son's favorite school snack, and since it is so fast and easy to make he can have it all the time.

Pumpkin Chocolate Dessert Cake
I have made this recipe FIVE times since I first saw it two months ago! My family doesn't even like chocolate, but they gobbled this up. My son even requested it for his birthday cake! I live overseas in a country that doesn't have premade pumpkin puree or applesauce, so I made them myself (thanks, phatcat, for the Sarah's applesauce recipe!). It does take my cake at least an hour to cook, but it's still moist, and I like for my frosting to cool a bit and become more solid than a glase. The last time I made the frosting I even added some caramels to make it even sweeter. This one is a keeper!
