Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

Pumpkin Cornbread Recipe

After getting this in our newest candle scent I was curious about actually trying to make some of this.
I found a recipe on line- I have not tried this yet but it sounds good!
Pumpkin Cornbread

1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1 1/2 cups milk

Sift dry ingredients.

Beat the egg.

Stir egg, oil, pumpkin and milk into dry ingredients quickly, leaving a few lumps.

Pour into a greased 8-inch square pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. Cut into squares.

Thanks! I was actually Googling for a recipe to cook a whole pumpkin and ran across this recipe, which also sounds great. Looks we're going to be putting some baking pumpkins to good use this weekend (it just occurred to me that soup might be a necessity as well).
