NEW! - This Week's Cravings Blog Hop Party!

Welcome to Week #1 of

This Week's Cravings!

This is a new blog hop party - I'm very excited to be a part of this party! I am working with blogger buddies Delightful Country Cookin' and Mom's Crazy Cooking. Every week we will have a new theme - so plan ahead and let's party.

Here's a run down of our little shindig and the rules:

This is your chance to share your favorite recipe each week based on our themes. Post that favorite breakfast from last week, or post your favorite cheesecake you made last month, just please stick to the theme. We all want to read and discover your favorite recipe post, or if you don’t have a recipe that matches this week’s theme, then our hope is we inspire you to make something and link-up in the future.

Please link directly to your post, NOT to your home page. And pretty pretty please link back to one of our hosts using the button or a direct link. We hope to see you week after week sharing new recipes. It’s FUN to visit too! Click around at the other participant’s and visit as many as you can, LEAVE COMMENTS too! Everyone loves to know that their blog is being enjoyed by others. And remember, this is a BLOG PARTY so please ENJOY THE PARTY AND MEET BLOGGERS!

Everyone is invited, if you don’t have a blog, then fell free to post your recipe in the comments for others to see.

Pulled this one from my archives - Pumpkin Pie Dip. Quick, easy & yummy!

  • 1 can pumpkin
  • Marshmallow fluff
  • 1 - 8 oz. block cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg and ground ginger
    OR 1 Tb. Pumpkin Pie Spice

  1. Beat cream cheese in a large bowl until soft. Slowly beat in canned pumpkin until mixture is perfectly creamy. Then the marshmallow fluff - this may take a little while to distribute.

  2. Add powdered sugar slowly. Lastly mix in all spices.

  3. I microwaved the dip in a bowl, then spooned into the serving bowl. If you have a very small, dip crockpot I think it would work perfectly. Or.... I think pouring the dip into an oven safe bowl, then covering it with mini-marshmallows and baking until ooey, gooey, bubbly perfection sounds pretty darn good too.

  4. Serve with graham crackers, sugar cookies, marshmallows, ginger snap cookies! The possibilities are almost endless :) I used graham crackers, marshmallows and white chocolate melting wafers.

I love this idea! How fun!

I am a new blogger so just to make sure I understand, do I post my recipe or blog link in the comment box (like I am doing right now)? Sorry if this is an ignorant question, just want to follow blog etiquette!

You can put the link here if you like. However, if you have a blog and link to a direct post you can click the "CLICK HERE TO ENTER" at the bottom of the post. A new page will pop up asking for the direct link, name and then a photo. 3 easy steps and your recipe shows with the other linked recipes at the bottom of the post!
