Mini-chef Schweigert's Pumpkin Bars

While my passion, or lack thereof, for cooking and baking struggles, one of my husband’s mini-me’s has stepped upclaytonpumpkinbars to the plate. Normally I would suggest he was filling my void. In this case, he isn’t making up for mom’s lack of kitchen enthusiasm, he genuinely enjoys creating dishes – salsa/mexican dips, cheese churd apps, cookies and these wonderful Pumpkin Bars. I might even go out on a limb and toot my own horn by using the #bestmomoftheyear HT. Recently, I’ve been making a solid effort at learning (or, re-learning) how to cook for my fam. Me thinks that maybe, just maybe, I’ve partially inspired a young culinary star.

As he works from creation to creation, he’s learning a tough lesson that is still hard for me to swallow. That lesson is, “No one is perfect”. Not all of our dishes will prove to be stellar and we might even have a few flops. This pumpkin bar recipe however, is outstanding. We’re giving him extra gold stars because he invented it using his wheat-free flour.

Why do we use wheat-free (aka Gluten-free) flour, you ask?

On a routine re-check of Willis’ peanut allergy, it was noted that his wheat reactor is reaching towards the sky. Its taken some time with trial and error but we feel like we are making progress. I’m encouraged that he is taking lemons and making pumpkin bars.
