Lucy Jane's Best: Pumpkin Squares with Cream Cheese Frosting

If you are looking for recipes that are tried and true... look no further.
One of my favorite food sites is Lucy Jane's Best.   My friend Shannon who is the founder.  I am not biased at all because I love my friend so much that I named my youngest after her youngest...I promise the food is REALLY good.  I am not a great cook, but the recipes are actually something that I have tried to make myself.  One of my favorites is the Chicken Caesar Wrap.  So go... drool a little, and perhaps find your new favorite recipe!
