Karin's Creamy Pumpkin Soup

"This soup is honestly to DIE for!! Infact, I can't wait to make it again!!! And soon!! I became quite excited about it while I was typing the recipe out!!! LOL!! The nutmeg added really makes it! If making this soup in advance, leave the egg yolks and cream out until close to serving time. If freezing the soup, leave the egg yolks and cream out until thawed and heated."

    This is a nice soup. I found it to be very creamy and quite tasty if it is left to cool a bit. I made it for our lunch today with the first butternut squash of the season and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.


I live in New Zealand, I'm married and my husband and I have no children....but we do have a dog (Bruno the Poodle), and a cat (Gus the Birman)! Back in November 2000, I resigned from a 17yr career with Air New Zealand as a Purser. I am now working as a Private Investigator with my husband - having his own Investigation Company. The work is varied and at times very rewarding as I'm sure you can imagine! I have an absolute passion for shoes...what woman doesn't??!!!, and fashion generally, including that of Home Interiors and furnishings, and gardens. I enjoy, among many past-times, art, gardening, water ski-ing, power walking, and ofcourse...COOKING!!(and entertaining). I guess my pet peeve would be running late for an appointment somewhere! 10 minutes early = 10 minutes late with me!! So, ON time is VERY late!!! If I had a month off - no work, and no responsibilities I would buy 2 return airfares to Honolulu!! And spend 2 weeks on Waikiki Beach with my husband and 2 weeks at home in the kitchen!! And entertaining friends and family.
