From the Back Cover

Put More Pumpkin in Your Year

Pack your diet with extra nutritional punch! Versatile, delicious pumpkin -- a powerhouse of complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamin C, and huge amounts of vitamin A -- is landing on many nutrionists' lists of "super foods." Shouldn't it be landing more frequently on your dinner plate?

Take advantage of pumpkin's health benefits all year by adding its mellow flavor and smooth texture to an exciting variety of global tastes and classic baked goods. Use canned puree in spicy Thai Pumpkin Soup; toss a handful of toasted seeds into a hearty Winter Salad with Maple Pumpkin Dressing; or savor the mellow taste of fresh pumpkin in Moroccan Chicken & Pumpkin Stew. Of course the rich spciy flavor of pumpkin pie filling never fails to delight. It's well represented here with six fresh takes on pumpkin pie, along with pumpkin cheesecake, almond pumpkin bread pudding, pumpkin panna cotta, and pumpkin ginger ice cream.

So, use it fresh or canned -- there's always a place for pumpkin!

I have to start out by saying I LOVE pumkin, but have had a hard time finding recipes that extend far beyond your typical Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Until I found this book, that is. As stated by another reviewer, the author gives great instructions on how to prepare pumpkin, which is great for people like me who have only cooked with the canned puree. Not to say that you have to have a pumpin patch to use this cookbook; on the contrary, the author offers a wide variety of recipes, utilizing both fresh and canned pumpkin. There is also a very handy list that organizes the recipes by the type of pumpkin used (canned, roasted, etc.) so you can easily find a way to use what you have on hand. Every recipe that I have tried to far has been great, epecially the Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins. *** I have to add to this and say that the pumpkin-molasses snaps alone make this book worth buying! My family polishes them off and then requests them again before the cookie sheets have cooled!

Health and dietary experts continue to uncover new health benefits from eating pumpkin, but many find pumpkins difficult to cook with. Enter DeeDee Stovel's great cookbook to the rescue! First, many of us have a misconception that a cooking pumpkin is that large carving pumpkin known as a Jack-O-Lantern. Cooking pumpkins such as "Small Sugar" - the standard pie pumpkin, or "Rouge d'Etampes - the standard soup pumpkin, are considerably smaller than carving pumpkins. In addition, their eating quality is excellent whereas carving pumpkins have very little flavor or sweetness. These pumpkins are so delicious, you'll wonder why you've never eaten them before. And they are packed with nutrients including phytonutrients, which protects your skin from sun cancer.

In this book, DeeDee Stovel has developed many pumpkin recipes including soups such as Caribbean Black Bean. She shares how to roast or grill pumpkin, then add it to salads. Or you can make side dishes by mashing and mixing in herbs and other fruits. Recipes for pumpkin fruit smoothies and even a pumpkin drink are included. On the top of my list of her pumpkin dishes to try is Roasted Ginger pumpkin soup.

This cookbook would be such a big help to young mothers who were never taught cookery and only know how to order a pizza. The recipes are not only simple to follow, suprisingly delicious, and appealing even to young children, but the dishes will save you loads of money in your monthly food bill while promoting your personal health.

I love pumpkin pie and make it every year. But when I saw this book I was intruiged. Can you really make a dish for every course with pumpkin? Surely not! Oh, but yes... you can. I am hooked.
I am a pumpkin-cooking fool now!
So yummy, so good for you and it makes you smile. I've even been inspired to use pumpkin in some of my old favorite recipes. The fam loves it and my coworkers are begging me for the recipes. Well, they're getting copies of this book for christmas :)

I absolutely LOVE pumpkin, but I didn't know how to cook with fresh pumpkin. This book is excellent for not only providing instruction on how to cook fresh pumpkin but it also gives unique and wonderful recipes. There are some traditional recipes, such as a variety of pumpkin soups, however, there are others like risotto and pumpkin gratin. So if you love pumpkin and like to try new things... this is a wonderful book that is easy to use!

A really splendid package of menu's to suit all tastes and personalities. Our grandchildren refer to Pumpkin soups as Grandma's special soups and are always on the look out for variations, so this book has served as a wonderful insight to all the variations that are now possible.

The fact that this book also includes a miriad of other recipes, not normally found in the UK, has proved a treasure and it looks as if we shall continue to grow a regular crop of these wonderful vegetables for many years to come

This is one of those books that I anticipated more from and ended up being disappointed in. The author states that pumpkin is versatile and indeed it must be because she takes any dish and manages to include pumpkin it in. From starters, snacks and beverages through soups, sides, main courses, breads and of course pies, clear to cookies, cakes and dessert, she manages to takes some of America's most chic and trendy cuisine and - in some instances not even really creatively - include pumpkin or pumpkin seeds in a recipe.

For example:

Pumpkin Pizza with Gorgonzola
Wild Mushroom Pumpkin Risotto
Roasted Corn Pumpkin Chowder
Chicken Pumpkin Tacos
Grilled Salmon with Pepita Crust (pumpkin seeds)
Braised Cabbage with Sausage....and Pumpkin
Spicy Cranberry Pecan....Pumpkin Muffins
Apricot Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Pistachio Crust - the author includes "one Tbsp." of pumpkin butter in this recipe.
Meatloaf.... with pumpkin glaze. Jeez.... anybody could tell you that meatloaf goes good with ANYTHING.

I do have to admit that some of the salad and bread recipes I found intriguing and most likely make a purchase of this book worthwhile. I wouldn't buy it new though. Without any major effort I believe that most any of these recipes could be found on the internet.

I want to conclude this review with MY favorite pumpkin recipe. Enjoy.

PUMPKIN RUM MOUSSE

Pour 1/2 cup evaporated milk into a saucepan, sprinkle 1 tbsp. Knox unflavored powdered gelatin over the top and let stand 5 minutes.
Place the mix over medium heat and cook 2 minutes stirring constantly until the gelatin is dissolved.
