Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Squares & Creamy Broccoli Soup. MoFo 24!

As Amercian Thanksgiving nears, all I see everywhere are delicious recipes. I am starting to think I will probably make myself a small feast when the day comes. I didn't really do much for Canadian Thanksgiving and I don't care where the holiday is celebrated, if it involves food, I am in! Pumpkin desserts are always a holiday staple, since I didn't want to go through the hassle of making a pie or cheesecake I decided to do a cookie or bar when I came across this recipe on the PPK forums. I said I was going to stop baking since I need to get back on track with my anit-candida diet but what the hell, the year is almost over and I want to enjoy some treats. Afterall, pumpkin is one of my favorite baking items and tis the season. I highly recommend giving this recipe a try,!

I also made the Creamy Broccoli & Cauliflower soup from Quick & Easy Vegan Celebrations this morning. It was pretty good. Not my favorite as I like a true creamy soup and I think it could have used more salt. The not enough salt thing seems to be a trend with this cookbook in my opinion, but I guess you can always add more right? Next time I make this soup I think I will use 1/2 veggie stock, 1/2 rice or soy milk for a creamier texture and maybe even some almonds, cashews or macadamia nuts.

Only 6 more days of MoFo. Can you believe it? I wish I would have done a post everyday but I think for my first year participating and my last minute decision to do so that I have done fairly well. Next year I plan on preparing for MoFo, I really had no idea what I was in for. I think I will do a theme of some sort or at least organize my posts ahead of time, maybe even bank or pre write a few things :) I also want to do some giveaways, I would have loved to this year but it's not really in the budget, although I might be able to make something happen. If anyone has any ideas of a special something you would like to win, let me know and I'll see if I can somehow pull it together in the next few days. See you all tomorrow!
