When I posted a round-up of the recipes I actually make on a fairly frequent basis I totally forgot to include this chili. I’m not really the type of person who thinks you can only eat pumpkin between the months of October through January so I’ve been known to whip up a batch of this […]

According to the calendar we can’t move on from pumpkin to eggnog until after your favorite uncle devours the last piece of Thanksgiving pie around 1:00 AM on Black Friday so until then you better stock pile your cans and gourds.

Pumpkin Yeast Rolls

March 28, 2008

When these rolls came out of the oven and I tasted the first one sandwiched with a little butter I almost did a cartwheel. Finally, I’d made a recipe with yeast that actually tasted good! Time for a quiz. Which of the following accurately illustrates how Erin feels about baking bread: A. I famously can’t […]

Pumpkin Crème Brûlée

March 19, 2008

Like many of you, my Crème Brûlée obsession stems from the movie Amelie. Who can forget that gorgeous scene where Audrey Tautou’s character cracks the caramelized top of her dessert while declaring it one of life’s simple pleasures? To that end, if there is Crème Brûlée to be found on a menu I always order […]
