For the last several months my great friend and blogger buddy was on blog-leave. Well, she’s back and cooking up a storm! If you haven’t checked out Pennies on a Platter from my “Blogs I read” section, you should. She specializes in penny pinching culinary wonders. The latest? Homemade pumpkin puree. I’ve always avoided it, thinking how much work it would be, but after reading her post, I’m trying this tonight.
