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.

This is a unique book with winning recipes. I have tried the bread, scone, and soup recipes and found them to be delicious, as well as nutritious. I have purchased this book for myself, as well as for gifts, and I would highly recommend!

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 love this cookbook and I'm so glad it was written. I love pumpkin and it is so good to see it used to it's full potential with these recipes. It surprises everyone(including me sometimes)when they find out how versatile and delicious pumpkin really is and this cookbook will take you to the heights of pumpkin pleasure! Most people think pumpkin is only for pie(or jack o lanterns) and maybe other sweet items like bread,cakes, lattes, etc. However, pumpkin can be used in all sorts of dishes.
I've made lots of recipes from this book and there was only one slight disappointment; the Mexican Pumpkin Lasagne. It was basically delicious but kind of dry; I felt it could have used more sauce.
Another reviewer mentioned the Pumpkin Molasses Gingersnaps and how delicious they were. I second that. However, other than one other recipe, I haven't made many of the sweet recipes from this book, mostly because I'm so very interested in exploring pumpkin's usage in savory main dishes, side dishes, appetizers, etc. and I have tried and true pumpkin dessert recipes that I have gotten elsewhere. However I do love pumpkin sweets and wouldn't mind trying the sweet things from this book anyway...
My favorite dish from this book by far is the Pumpkin Gratin with Caramelized Onions. Oh my! The nutty, creamy Gruyere cheese, the caramelized onions flavored with smoky bacon and thyme, the mellow pumpkin as a base, touched with the nutmeg scented cream, topped with crispy breadcrumbs and browned cheese. Heaven on earth. I'm salivating just thinking of it! Every autumn my friends and I hold a Great Pumpkin Feast; a pot luck that is everything pumpkin, and this dish is always the big hit. I have friends who can't wait for the feast just so they can have the gratin!

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
