Challenge Accomplished - My Beautiful Pumpkin Roll

I've been really wanting to bake something fun and challenging. So last night, I did it! I made a Pumpkin Roll!

It turned out beautiful - if I may say so myself! I thought it would be hard but it was a lot easier than I thought. Have you ever tried to cook something you thought would be hard - then thought later 'that wasn't so hard'?

I tried to make it all pretty and fancy looking - not sure if I accomplished that or not. I did make my own homemade carmel sauce and drizzled it over top before shifting it with powder sugar. I think the carmel sauce gave it a third definition of taste. It was really good and as far as I know, I have never seen anyone do this before.

While I was on a roll, I also made an Egg Pie for breakfast for the kids:


... Peanut Butter Fudge! I wasn't 100% impressed with the fudge. I think I cooked it too long so it didn't come out soft and gooey the way I like. It's not hard - just not as soft and gooey. Also, when I try this again, I need to use a smaller deeper pan. This pan was too big and long, and the fudge turned out more like fudge pancakes. It taste good nonetheless - so I'm sure it wont go to waste, but I will definitely have to try this one again.

I have one of the easiest and yummy peanut butter fudge recipes ever...

- Regular size jar of peanut butter
- Tub of Cream cheese frosting.

Put peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 30-45 seconds so it will be warm and easy to work with. Fold in the cream cheese frosting. Put it in the fridge for at least an hour to set up.

You'll be amazed how easy this is... and since you can often for the frosting and PB on sale, it's cheap too!!! I always keep each on hand in case I need some thing last minute for a party.

I love pumpkin roll. I'm thinking about trying the chocolate pepermint version this year. We'll see.

I LOVE peanut butter fudge. Growing up in Maine there was a place on the harbor that made the best. 2 years ago when we went up there to visit I got to go in and have a piece. It had been over 15 years so let me tell you it tasted sooooo good. Great job!
