It’s that time again… Secret Recipe Club time!!
I’ve really loved being part of Secret Recipe Club. It has been such a great past 2 years (well almost). It has put me in touch with so many great bloggers and given me the chance to try new recipes. I try to pick a new to me recipe or a new to me technique so I’m learning something new in the process.
In this month’s case, I had Colie’s Kitchen. yay! Another Nicole!!!!! She juggles a busy schedule, exactly like me, but still manages to make so many good sounding recipes, while I might be eating more boxed mac and cheese lately than I care to admit! It was fun to search through the recipe index and get so insprired. And Colie has been posting and posting for ages!!! So many options to pick from, well for Price to pick from since I always give him first pass at picking out recipes.
Colie had a Pumpkin Roll recipe that must have jumped out to price since pretty much as soon as I had giving him the recipe index link he hands back the computer so I can make that. He also picked another pumpkin recipe so he must be ready for some fall time recipes. Well, this Pumpking Roll worked out for me since I’d never made a ‘roll’ recipe before so I’d be learning a new technique.
Some things I learned while making this pumpkin roll…
- you need A LOT of powdered sugar on the towel to prevent it from sticking to the towel. I did put a lot on since that tip was provided as well, but it really is a lot. You basically can’t put too much on. Well, you could but basically you need more than you think of putting on the towel
- Do not to too much frosting on! I was thinking that this recipe didn’t had a lot of frosting and there is a reason! It would really mess things up if you put too much on as it would overflow out of it and/or cause the roll to split in the process of rolling as it would be too full.
I’m so glad that I had Colie’s blog this month! I got to try a great new recipe and learn how to make a roll in the process. So much fun!
Give the Pumpkin Roll recipe a try and I swear you’ll be a fan of this sweet fall treat!
