So… Thanksgiving is this week. Are you ready? Already we’ve given you possible ideas for appetizers, soups, salads, sides as well as the turkey. All that’s left to discuss is the dessert. I’m sure pumpkin pie will be on your menu, but what else? Here are some ideas just to get you going…

& here’s a recipe for a new family favorite. (Don’t be fooled by the name, it’s delicious!)
Pumpkin Dump Cake
1 can (30-ounces) pure pumpkin
3 cups evaporated milk (about 2 cans)
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1 yellow cake mix (rumor has it that it’s tasty with a white cake mix too)
1 cup chopped pecans
4 eggs, well beaten
1 & 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cloves
2 sticks of butter, melted
Mix pumpkin, evaporated milk, cinnamon, ginger, eggs, sugar, salt & cloves together well. Pour into a well-greased 9×13 pan. sprinkle with cake mix & drizzle with melted butter (try to cover all of the cake mix with butter), then sprinkle with the pecans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.in my personal opinion (which i know doesn’t really count for much), i think it tastes best when it’s well-cooled, & topped with cool whip or vanilla bean ice cream (those little black specks are the best!).
