Roasted Pear and Pumpkin Soup

From A Cupcake For Love!

 

This looks so beautiful!  I remember the first time I ever had pumpkin soup was a few years back, when we were in Dublin Ireland.  Imagine that.  I grew up in the pumpkin capital of the world(Illinois)!

 

We never were that daring.  Pumpkins there were for carving and pies.  I didn’t even see a lot of pumpkin seeds until  I got to Texas!

 

This recipe looks delish!  I love the touch of rosemary.  There are some other great recipes.  Go and check out the site!

Recipe of the Day: Jamaican Jerk Tofu

Posted on

From Real Caribbean Food!

 

Wow!  My mouth is watering.  I am always looking for a new tofu recipe.  This is made with jerk sauce. Very Jamaican.  So I know that it’s going to be tasty.

 

Check out the site.  They have some great recipes.  This is a restaurant in NYC.  They need to move to Houston.  We could use a restaurant like this!

 

All the ingredients are easily available.  Pimento berries is allspice which you can get at supermarkets.  If you are hit by the pumpkin shortage, butternut squash would be a good substitute.

Another day, another pumpkin recipe.  If you have a Halloween Party over the weekend, these would be great!   The blend of the pumpkin spice(cinnamon, nutmeg, & ginger) sounds great.  I love the icing.  They use mascarpone cheese, which is not easy to find in my stores.  I am going to substitute it with cream cheese.  The recipe is in metric, so here is the conversion table!

I missed National Pumpkin Day!  Yikes!  It was yesterday.  Here I have been posting pumpkin recipes for over a week, and I didn’t even know.  Thanks to Boastful Food, I will know from here on in.

 

They posted a wonderful recipe for pumpkin wontons.  All spicy and creamy on the inside.  Crispy outside.  Heaven.  Even the dipping sauce looks wonderful.  Is it spicy sweet and sour?  Check out the recipe.  It looks great!

From MissLifeStyler.com!

 

It’s beginning to feel a lot like fall!  Especially  with the aromas that are abounding.  People forget how tantalizing smells can be.  And when I start smelling vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon, I know that the holiday season is right around the corner!

A quote from Miss Life Styler!

It’s FALL YA’LL! …and you know what that means: time to wear comfy winter clothes, drink an obnoxious amount of pumpkin lattes and make your home smell like SPICED HEAVEN!

Pumpkin Thyme Macaroni and Cheese

Posted on Updated on

Pumpkin Macaroni & CheeseMy friend Mindy sent this recipe to me from Challenge Dairy.  What a great what to use pumpkin!  We have always been a mac and cheese house.  My son absolutely loved mac and cheese.  I would make a casserole of mac and cheese at least twice a month.  I kept that on hand for lunches for my son and myself, when we were in a hurry.  And that was a lot. 

I also want to point out that you can put additions in that will enhance mac and cheese.  For the better!    I have already post a macaroni and cheese dish with smoked Gouda!  Talk about yummy!

Pimped pumpkin ice cream shots

From Ice Cream Magazine!

 

I am still on the pumpkin binge.  I determined to find as many great recipes as possible for pumpkin.  I truly believe that pumpkin is highly underrated next to it squash kin of butternut and acorn squash(I do love these varieties though).

 

I ran across this recipe for pimped pumpkin ice cream shots.  I love Ice Cream Magazine wonderful articles(I have posted about them before).  This article gave me a chuckle.  They too are having a canned pumpkin shortage!  You all better get out there and get your pie pumpkins!

 

Go a read the article.  It has some great instructions and ideas.  I love the idea of using a gingersnap for a coaster!

Warm up with a Pumpkin Spice Latte – no dairy

From Crave!

 

Fall is one of my favorites seasons.  Part of it is due to the changing colors of the foliage.  The other part is the changing smells and tastes of what we eat and drink.  We go from salads and cold drinks to aromatic soups and hot drinks like the this pumpkin spice latte.  So good.  This is a wonderful recipe that uses real pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice!

Halloween is such a wonderful celebration.  When we were kids, we would  dress up in outrageous costumes.  Be characters that you loved.  My favorite one was as an Indian princess.  I was the original Pocahontas!  And yelling trick or treat.  Getting all kinds of candy we would never get the rest of the year!  Mmm.

Halloween was also a scary time.  Haunted houses.  Ghosts in cemeteries.  I think it allowed us to work on our fears in a safe way.  This is why I love this essay from yadadarcyyada.  She talks about everyone having different fears.  What scares you might not scare me.  And bloggers really do have different kinds of scary.  She does in such a funny way, that Jim and I couldn’t stop laughing!  Another way to put fear and spooks and goblins in perspective.  Please go and check it out!
