Cooking Light & Perfect Portions Giveaway (Recipe: Pumpkin Pudding)

This giveaway is now closed! The winners, chosen by, of the Cooking Light Magazines subscriptions were: Ria from Rias Collection, Megan from Megans Cookin‘, and Dana (Drsalbghir). Hilary Gercken won the Perfect Portions scale! Congrats everyone and thanks for participating!

The pumpkin biscuits with the orange-honey butter I made yesterday were certainly a big hit around my house. We gobbled them up in no time, and my kids were wondering “Pumpkin muffins one day, pumpkin biscuits after that…what’s next, mom?” Well, I couldn’t disappoint them. In fact, I had a half a can of pumpkin leftover because the biscuits only use 1/2 a can. What pumpkin treat could I make that would work with only a half a can of pumpkin?

Later in the day when I was thumbing through the November 2010 issue of Cooking Light magazine I happened across a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Pudding requiring only a 1/2 cup of pumpkin. I instantly knew what I would be making with my leftover pumpkin. Let me tell you, these little beauties did not disappoint. (Just found out that this recipe is from our very own food blogging friend, Susan from Food Blogga! I love seeing my blogging friends in print. Great recipe, Susan!)

Another thing that never disappoints me is Cooking Light magazine. As someone who writes for magazines, I know how hard it is to put a magazine full of great recipes together and they seem to hit the mark with each issue. Every time I open an issue of Cooking Light, I seem to run out of post-it note sticky flags because I have page after page after page marked with recipes that I want to add to my I Will Make This Someday List.

I’m giving 3 lucky readers the chance to win a 12 month subscription to Cooking Light Magazine. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.

    I could definitely use that kitchen scale. James is doing weight watchers, and I have a protein centric diet, so it could very much come in handy. And I love any cooking magazine. If you endorse it, I want it! (Oh, and I’ll be making that pumpkin pie pudding STAT.)

    Pumpkin Pudding! Sign me up! That sounds amazing. Cooking Light has always been a favorite of mine. Even if I don’t follow their lighter suggestions (i.e. low fat low sodium broth, skim milk, etc.), their recipes are always a win for us.

    I’ve been wanting to subscribe to Cooking Light for a while now, but just haven’t gotten around to it. The pumpkin pudding looks fabulous!

    My hubby and I have been trying to lose weight. A scale would be wonderfully helpful in portion control! Also, a big fan of Cooking Light. Please include me in both raffles. Thanks for these kind and generous offerings!

    I love Cooking Light – they have some fabulous recipes that prove food doesn’t have to be drowned in butter to be delicious. They also give me ideas for ways to spice up our typical dishes. Love them!

    That recipe sounds delicious. Would also love the chance at that cookbook. I love collecting cookbooks, and trying my hand at making all the recipes possible out of them. =)

    Bought three cans of pumpkin yesterday so I can jump into fall with baking this weekend. I can’t wait. Cooking Light is a favorite and it just so happens my subscription has lapsed. My youngest is in the habit of giving me HIS suggestions on how to spruce up my recipes and the magazine would be great!

    Pick me!!! :)

    Happy Fall!! Thanks for the ideas.
