Pumpkin Patch


Chef Lisa’s Kitchen


Who doesn’t love a trip to the pumpkin patch?! I sure do! Pumpkin season is my favorite time of year. I enjoy reminiscing about how we would take a family trip and were all allowed to pick our favorite pumpkin to bring home and carve and display on our porch.

Now as a chef, I can be creative with pumpkins and bake delicious, sweet and savory treats for my customers, friends and family. That’s what makes the selection of Wild Harvest free from and organic products to choose from the perfect fit for my baking needs. When my son was born, we started making his food from scratch at an early age using natural ingredients (the same ingredients that you too can buy right at your local SHOP ‘n SAVE). It is important to me to provide healthy treats that not only taste good but are equally as good for you.

Remember how I said I love pumpkin and making out of this world sweet treats? Well, how would you like to know how to make my yummy Pumpkin Snickerdooles? I would be happy to share with you my recipe so you can make them for your friends and family. So you see, it’s that easy to shop for and create healthy sweet treats with the help of Chef Lisa and SHOP ‘n SAVE!

Enjoy!
