Wednesday Recipes--Family Stories and Fluff



I'm always curious...about so many things. One of the things I'm curious about is who does the cooking in your household? I've been passionate about cooking since I was a child so the kitchen is mine.


However, in my sisters' homes, the husbands do a lot of the cooking. Funny thing is, in my youngest sister's house, when she does cook--I tend to love what she makes, including this Pumpkin Fluff recipe.


I enjoyed it so much that I tried to make a batch of it for Church Fellowship last month. The problem was pumpkin-flavored stuff is hard to find in the spring (read, impossible) so I had to modify the fluff and make it with different stuff--and that worked, too!


Bottom line--I tend to be a rule-follower, but can be creative when I must. How about you? Who does the cooking in your house? Do you follow recipes or go wild? Blessings, Christina :)


Pumpkin Fluff or Pumpkin-Spice Dip


Ingredients:


3/4 cup International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer (or Cinnamon Roll)

1 3.4 ounce package pumpkin spice instant pudding (or cheesecake)

1 8 ounce cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed (whole container, really)

Graham cracker crumbs for garnish


Instructions:


  1. In a bowl, whisk together the International Delight creamer with instant pudding. Set aside for about 5 minutes.

  2. In a mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and sugar.

  3. Add in pudding to cream cheese mixture and beat.

  4. Once well combined, fold in the 2 cups of thawed whipped topping and refrigerate.

  5. When ready to serve, fill bowl with fluff (the original recipe calls this a dip but fluff is more fun) topped with graham cracker crumbs.


Notes: I added cinnamon to my pudding (1/2 teaspoon to sub for the pumpkin spice).


Serve with sliced apples and broken graham crackers.

I am not a pumpkin spice fan. It sounds interesting. I share in with the cooking. My husband does most of it these days. Thanks for sharing. God bless you.

Debra, I understand--sometimes it gets like Christmas too early in the fall! I enjoy cooking, so it belongs to me--unless my husband is smoking or grilling meat. Yum! I'm looking forward to some grilled shish kebabs soon! You are welcome, and bless you!

I do most of the cooking in our home. I love cooking and experimenting. I take after my mom in that I generally don't really measure (can be a major downfall). I love to bake desserts, though we really shouldn't eat them. We do have a youngster living with us, so that's one excuse I have. My sis-in-law only cooks with the microwave and eats pre-packaged stuff. Hubster likes to deep fry, another no-no in our house. I do everything else.

Kathleen, I measure everything--except in a few recipes like meatloaf. And I love excuses--Hey, I want to bake. Have a blessed day, Christina

Thank the Lord for his provision. And my dad couldn't cook except a few interesting things--such as homemade sausage. God bless you, too!

I love reading about your cooking skills and wish I was passionate about cooking. I love to eat good stuff but lack the desire to cook. I do most of the cooking in my household but my meals are perfunctory. But when my husband cooks, his meals have much more pizazz! He’s especially good with seafood and I’ve never forgotten the fresh scallops and shark steak he made me during our dating days. I need to do better … or just talk him into cooking more!!! 😍

Christina, you have been busy writing blogs! As you know, I do all the cooking in our house. Chip makes coffee and occasionally grills burgers. Our kitchen is all mine too!
