Iced Pumpkin Cookies
I don't really know if they are the best as it was my first attempt of Pumpkin Cookies... but they are so tasty and moist that I wouldn't change the recipe for an other one. Even my husband who really don't like pumpkin ate all his part and try to eat mine... I usually froze my pumpkin raw. I peel it and cut the flesh in cube. As we don't have canned pumpkin puree in France, I used my frozen cubes. I let them in the fridge all the night and then I microwaved them 9 min. I separated the flesh from the water (press the pumpkin well to extract all the water) and pureed the flesh in my blender. And it worked perfectly.

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes
With this recipe, you could never failled! I used less fat milk and lemon instead of buttermilk and add also a tablespoon of flour. They were fluffy and delicious like always.

A-Number-1 Banana Cake
A friend of mine gave me this recipe. I tried it yesterday for the first time and bring it to work today. As I didn't have buttermilk, I made it with milk and lemon (instead of vinegar). It was perfect!!! All my collegues (all French) was surprised by the texture and the taste... They simply love it!!! They told me that I could try my american treats on them every time I want ;-) Thanks!!!
