Low Carb Pumpkin Pancakes

Cooking for kids seems to be impossible at times...this includes my son. He is 9 and has the tendency to choose anything and everything containg sugar. I must say, I can't stand that. I wish he would eat whatever was put in front of him...but it tends to be a challenge. Sometimes I "trick him" (that's what he tells me), and other times I just alter his favorite foods to make them healthier. My daughter on the other hand...shes 1 and tried to eat a leaf today. That girl is like a garbage disposal...she will eat any food (or item of nature) she comes across. ...more

Silly Name, Tasty Cake: Delumpkin Pumpkin Cake

I’ll admit it. I’m not ashamed. I first made this recipe because I thought the name was cute.  I have no idea what a Delumpkin is, or a Delumpkin Pumpkin, but whatever it is…it totally works.  This cake is amazingly moist and flavorful, plus it’s incredibly easy to throw together.  If you’re looking for a holiday alternative to pumpkin pie or a spice cake, this fits the bill, and it’s a hit every time I’ve made it for a crowd!...more

Pumpkin Waffles or Pancakes for a Halloween Week Meatless Monday Dinner!
