Halloween 2012

This year, we continue with our pumpkin craving. My sister, Hei Man, carved a silly skeleton. I did Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, because I made marshmallows this year. Hahaha… And Bryan carved Homer Simpson. They all came out nicely until today. They are all fuzzy moldy this morning. They were so moldy that I can’t reach in the pumpkins. I wiped them down with some bleach water and cleaned out most of the mold. They should last until tonight. However Homer definitely has turned into an alien, the pumpkin is pretty decayed that the facial lines have changed. Very funny! We will see if anyone can recognize him tonight.

Happy Halloween! Have a great night! Stay safe!


Mini Pumpkin Pies

Halloween is over the corner. These cute mini pumpkin pies are just like the carved pumpkins. They are small in size and easy to eat. The pumpkin filling was creamy and sweet. The pie crust was buttery and savory, which just balance out the sweetness of the pie.  They are the perfect party dessert.

Pumpkin Cupcake with Cream Cheese Icing

This Thanksgiving, I was thinking to make some kind of pumpkin dessert. But I have made the pumpkin gooey bar (Read) for the past two years. I wanted to have something new and different. Finally, I have decided on this pumpkin cupcake recipe. My father-in-law ate 3 of these cupcakes at one time, and my mother-in-law asked me to make these again for Christmas. I love these cupcakes too! They are not too sweet, but flavorful. The cream cheese icing is absolutely perfect with the cupcakes. This recipe is very simple, and it won’t take you all day!

Pumpkin Gooey Bar

This is a really good and easy pumpkin dessert. Instead of having pumpkin pie, this is an excellent choice. I love the soft crust on the bottom, and the mixture is so delicious and gooey. Bryan loves this absolutely! I have made this many times, and it was a success every time. Just make sure not to overbake. If the center jiggle a little, that is normal.

My sister, Bryan and I were carving pumpkins yesterday. It took about 3 hours, but it was fun! I love the end results!
