Pumpkin and Red Bean Curry

pumpkin curry and naan

Every once in a while, believe it or not, I end up making something that (a) doesn’t require an oven and (b) isn’t a breakfast/dessert item. I certainly wouldn’t mind if everything I cooked fell into one of those two categories, but there are so many other foods out there worth eating that it is a shame to pass on them. Besides, most of them ... Read More »

Pumpkin Cranberry Loaf

Earlier this year, I tried a recipe for a fat free pumpkin pound cake from Fast Food Fix, a book that specializes in making low-fat or fat free versions of restaurant favorites. The pound cake was tasty, but had one major flaw: it tasted a bit rubbery after the first day. At the time, I covered this up by toasting it, but the problem is ... Read More »

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

The holidays have a way of making time go by both very slowly and very quickly, which is why it has taken me so long to get this post up even though I intended to do it days ago. Fortunately for me, despite the fact that Thanksgiving is now over, pumpkins are considered to be winter fare, as well as fall. Of course, canned pumpkin ... Read More »

Pumpkin Gingerbread

The recipe comes from Epicurious and is actually for muffins, not for a loaf. There are several problems with this. First of all, I love muffins, but I love loaves more. They transport easily, wrap well and can be served in any size portion. Personally, I like to work my way through a few thin slices during the day and spreading out the enjoyment, as ... Read More »

Spiced Pumpkin Muffins

After having some good success with my Eggless Chocolate Bundt Cake, I wanted to try applying the same technique to other recipes. The cake had such a moist, soft, light texture that it is now one of my favorites. The best part is that no one ever suspects that it is different tha other chocolate cakes, only that it tastes really good. I decided to ... Read More »

Pumpkin Oatmeal Bread

Despite the occasionally negative comments that I have heard about Beth Hensperger’s Bread Bible, I (so far) have always had good results with it. Last week, when I was looking for a bread to make for Thanksgiving, I flipped through the book, looking for something that would be hearty but not too heavy to accompany the big meal. I had in mind that I wanted ... Read More »

Maple Pumpkin Butter

Sugar and spice are exactly what is nice about pumpkin butter. Well, maple syrup and spices. Pumpkin butter is my favorite, but apple butter is a close second. Some stores carry jarred fruit butters, including pumpkin, apple, cherry, apricot and others, if you don’t want to make your own. Fruit butter is smoother, creamier and less sweet than jam. more concentrated fruitiness. It is a ... Read More »

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Given that, for those of us in the northern hemisphere, fall is upon us, I am much more inclined than usual to make things with pumpkin. I know other people are, too. The subtley sweet and easy spiceability of the squash make it practically the symbol of fall. I just love it any time, but certainly am aware of a higher level of acceptability as ... Read More »
