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.

Fruit butter is smoother, creamier and less sweet than jam. more concentrated fruitiness. It is a ... Read More »

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 »

Spiced Pumpkin Soup

To serve with my lovely bread, I made a spiced pumpkin soup. It had a really central american flavor due to the cocoa powder and cinnamon I added. I began with the Southwestern Pumpkin Soup recipe at Epicurious, but I didn’t really have any of the spices that it called for. Consequently, I am more then happy to take partial credit for the creation of ... Read More »
