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.

    Who wouldn’t love a years subscription to Cooking Light include little ole me who just happens to be a magazine junkie. I look forwarding to finding out what’s next on Dine & Dish!

    That looks great-can’t wait to try it! My mom always saves her Cooking Light and Food Network Magazines for me, so when I am able to come home from school, she usually has a small stack waiting for me! As much as I love getting my mom’s issues, it would be great to be able to call her on the phone and cook a dish “together” though hundreds of miles apart!

    The pudding looks delicious, as do those biscuits! I have looked at scales before and never got one because I wasn’t sure it would be worth it, but it would certainly be interesting to see how I normally cook and if my portioning is correct. Cooking Light tends to do a very good job on both the writing and the recipe development though I don’t always follow them perfectly.

    I have no magazine subscriptions….while my husband receives about 5 horse magazines a month. I think I should get at least one, and one for free would be awesome!

    I love Cooking Light! I’ve never seen that scale before, I’m definitely going to have to look into it.

    The only problem I have with Autumn is that I’m not a pumpkin fan and that’s all everyone talks about until after Thanksgiving. And then it’s all about ginger stuff for Christmas and I only recently got into gingersnaps. At least there’s Christmas music to hold me over. Hehe.

    Thanks for hosting this contest. I love your blog! Today’s recipe, the bbq chicken sliders, looks so tasty and so easy. The fam will love it!

    Cooking Light is my cooking bible. I have so many of their cookbooks….I even purchased a 1990 cookbook from a used book store this weekend! So fun to see the older recipes and how nutrition guidelines have changed!

    I’ve been going crazy trying pumpkin recipes all month. We always make pumpkin cranberry bread this time of year and love it. Thanks for the chance to win a subscription. I love Cooking Light!

    I’m all about pumpkin right now. I just had pumpkin soup for lunch! And a pumpkin pudding would be so good. I’d also love a subscription to Cooking Light. Hooray!

    Pumpkin reminds me the change of season and approach of holidays, time with family and friends, and football. These recipes look fabulous. Can’t wait to smell them in my kitchen.
