Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

THIS. Ok. I don’t often throw rose petals at myself, but I’ve been covered in them since the minute this came out of the oven.  I don’t know how this idea popped in my head. Maybe it was these from last year. Or the fact that there are only a couple of weeks left to […]

I’m sure you’re thinking “Carrot Souffle? What in the world?” I know – I know – but bear with me here… A few years back, Dave and I attended a holiday dinner party at his former bosses house, and his wife did a bang up job with dinner!  I remember sitting down to the table […]

And this weekend, Dave and I will be hosting Dave’s High School clan for a ‘practice’ T-day dinner – because let’s be honest, this is the only month where that extra 5-10 lbs can be solely blamed on […]

Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake Bites

I’m stuffed – wanna know why? I was stressed last night – what a nail biter the election was! And I don’t know about you guys, but  I am a stress eater.  Instead of knitting, chewing gum or taking a brisk walk when I’m feeling anxious about something, I stuff my face with whatever is […]

Pumpkin Arancini Balls

You know that saying “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans”?  Well, same goes for cooking I think -sometimes really good stuff can come from a recipe that you really didn’t plan. Last year, I had pumpkin risotto for the first time, and man was it good! Lord Hobo is a bar […]
