This year I tried "french fries" made with pumpkins at our pumpkin festival. Not very healthy but certaily delicious!

When the recipe calls for 14 oz. of pumpkin would that be 1 and 3/4 cup of fresh pumpkin puree? Or do I need to weigh the puree to equal 14 oz in weight? I am confused because I cooked my pumpkins following your directions and I want to make sure I use the right amounts. Also, some of the recipes say to use 1 can of pumkin or 2/3 a can or whatever....how do I know how much fresh pumpkin puree to use?

Thanks so much for all your recipes...can't wait to try them now that I have my pumpkin puree.....and seeds!!

My daughter of 15 seems to have NDPH for 2 1/2 years. She was so alive until this hit her. We think this sttared from the Chicken Pox or maybe Mono. Her whole nervous system has been messed up. We have been to every type of Doctor you can think of. Her headaches start out around 4-5 in the morning and increase to level 7-9 at night before bed. We have tried every migrain medicine on the market but not one help the headache. We go to the emergency room sometimes 2 times a week. The doctors won't even admit her any longer. Some narcotics work the first time bringing the levels down from 9-10 to 3-4. The next time we go it does not work. She seems to get resistent to the drugs after first use. She is nauseous all the time and is no longer going to school. We are going to look into a spinal leak or possibly neck issues. She had a nerve caterized in her next with no luck. One treatment we hope to try is a lidocain or ketamine infusion. I was wondering if anyone has tried these for their headaches. The Childrens hospital in Seattle is using lidocaine infusion with some successs. There is a pain clinic in Salt Lake City that is using the Ketamine Infusions because they last longer (up to 3 months). We have tried the triptons, erogots, and every other type of medicine. She was put on a pain patch this last week but I don't think it will help at all. Her pain tolerance has been affected also. She had an out patient surgury to remove the galblader that should have been an out patient procedure. She was in the hospital for a week with so much pain. I will never stop looking for an answer to this. There has to be one. I am so tired of the doctors where we live. They think it is in her head and don't think she is in as much pain as she portrays. Make me so mad. I am glad i found this site but it made me even more sad and hopeless.

I am only writing to let you know what a wofrndeul experience my wife's child enjoyed checking your webblog. She came to understand some things, which included what it's like to possess a very effective helping style to have men and women with no trouble thoroughly grasp some very confusing issues. You truly did more than readers' expected results. I appreciate you for providing those important, safe, explanatory and also easy tips about this topic to Kate.
