Pumpkin Gutter

Pumpkin Gutter

I love carving pumpkins around Halloween. The carving itself is a lot of fun and it is very rewarding to see your work light up for the first time. The least fun part of carving pumpkins is gutting them. Pumpkins are sticky and messy on the inside, and while it is a lot of fun to play with that goop when you’re a kid (and ... Read More »

No-Churn Halloween Cookies n' Cream Ice Cream

Cookies n’ cream is an ice cream flavor that never goes out of season, and seems to taste just as good in January as it does in August.

Caramel apples, on the other hand, deliver a wonderful contrast between crisp, juicy, sweet-tart apples and rich, soft, buttery caramel that is perfectly indulgent. I often make them in the fall, as the summertime heat can make the caramels too ... Read More »

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Frosting

Pumpkin pie is the most common dessert made with pumpkin and it is a good one. The custardy filling is sweet and spicy, and its creamy texture contrasts well with a flaky pastry crust. It’s not the only great pumpkin dessert out there, however, and I would put these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Frosting up near the top of the list. They’re a great ... Read More »
