Toots they sounds really nice, in the past I have used sweet potato instead of pumpkin & it works as well (also easier to get hold of over here!!) What is Canola oil? is it just a specific brand? or a type of oil? I dont think we have it in the UK?
You are talking to one who does not cook here.....but Canola oil IS a Canadian product extracted from seed and is low on cholesterol. Do you have Mazola Oil?? Perhaps any oil will do. Olive Oil?? Popeye's gal always comes in handy.
