Easy Recipe


Pumpkin Soup


Oh my word, y’all!  Have you ever wondered what to do with Pumpkin?  Other than the usual celebrity,  Pumpkin Pie, my mind can sometimes go blank when it comes to that question.

Well,  no more!

I have the answer!…………..  Drumroll please…………


If you haven’t tried Pumpkin Soup, you simply haven’t lived!


This recipe has a savory, slightly sweet taste to it that you simply cannot pass up!

I paired dinner rolls with it and the kids devoured it.  The cute design on top was done using a small snack size ziplock bag filled with Greek Yogurt.

Get this!  Pumpkin has all of these surprising health benefits:

1).  It is good for your eyes.

2). It is good for your heart.

3). Aids in weightloss.

4). Helps protect against cancer.

5). Helps protect your skin.

6). Boosts your immune system AND your mood.

7). Can help you recharge after a hard workout.


Did I mention this recipe is VERY figure friendly?  Not only good for your health, but good for your waistline too!

That alone is worth trying this recipe out!


I certainly hope you do!
