We still have pumpkin puree left so when I got my Secret Recipe Club assignment I knew exactly what I needed to search for. I was assigned Sew You Can Cook written by Lauren. Lauren is an aerospace engineer (that is so awesome!) living in Florida. She shares recipes and quilting tutorials on her blog. When I starting browsing Lauren's blog I knew I wanted to make something with pumpkin since we have so much of it. I've already made Soft Baked Pumpkin Cookies and Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes. I found 2 recipes on Lauren's blog that use pumpkin, Pumpkin Broccoli Loaf and Pumpkin Spice Latte. I decided to go with the loaf but I used zucchini instead of the broccoli since I had a small one from the backyard. I also made half the recipe. The original makes 2 loaves.

Today I am reviewing Popcorn Indiana's newest flavour Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzlecorn. Chocolate and Peanut Butter are flavours that go so well together. I loved the idea of a dessert popcorn but I wasn't sure if everyone in our family would be on board with the Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzlecorn since I am the only person that likes Peanut Butter.

The pumpkin recipes continue in our home. We've still have a lot of pumpkin puree to go though after the boys each brought home a pumpkin from their field trip. I recently shared with you some Soft Baked Pumpkin Cookies I made that were a huge hit. Today I'm sharing Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes. I saw this recipe last year on My Ninja Naan. They looked so cute. The original recipe topped the cakes with a chocolate glaze. Henna skipped this step and I totally agree. The cakes are delicious on their own and any sort of glaze would overpower it.

Recently, my boys went on their first field trip of the school year to a farm and they each came home with a pumpkin. Pumpkin isn't something I cook except for the time I made a Pumpkin Pie on Hasan's request. I asked the boys what they would like me to make first with their pumpkins. They immediately said cookies. I found this recipe on Joy of Baking. It is not like a traditional cookie. It's very soft, almost cake like. They were a big hit. Chocolate chips or walnuts would be a great addition to these cookies.

Yogurt has always been a great snack for everyone in our family. One of the struggles we've faced in the past is finding a good flavoured yogurt that does not have gelatin. When iögo first came on the market we were excited to try it as it clearly stated on the packaging there was no gelatin. We instantly loved it.

I'm always on the search for a low fat cookie recipe. My boys love cookies and it really is hard for them to stop at one. I came across this recipe on Skinnytaste. I liked that they were oatmeal cookies and I find that if I put chocolate chips in anything, the boys will gobble them up!
