  1. Never like pumpkin growing up but I started to take and like it few years ago. As dessert, as side dishes.

    As a soup, not that often people cook and serve pumpkin soup that way, unless in western cuisine.

    Would love to try your recipe. I haven't experiment cooking pumpkin in my kitchen yet. ^^

  2. Oh, this would hit the spot! It's SO cold here, that a yummy hearty soup makes the best dinner! xo
