You want to earn some extra brownie points with the ones you love? Whip up a batch of these Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls. They are oh so yummy!
Pumpkin, pumpkin, PUMPKIN! Yep. That’s what swarming the internet foodie world right now. And well, with all the pumpkins that have popped up everywhere who can blame? The stuff’s good. Might as well just add it to everything.
I actually love cooking with pumpkin all year long, but there’s just something about the crisp Fall weather that just chimes with it just right and makes it that much better.
In a pure “make-it-from scratch” mood for your pumpkiny products this Fall? Learn how to make your own pumpkin puree!
Many years ago, I attempted making everything myself. I had an extra large carving pumpkin sitting around and decided it was time to make my own puree. I didn’t have a nice processor, or knife, or apparently knowledge of what I was doing. It actually tasted okay, but I don’t think it’s something I would repeat, or recommend without a little further instruction.
Homemade pumpkin puree can be soooo awesome though! Let’s be honest, the closer you can get to fresh, the better. So if you are in the mood for an extra special touch to your pie or even a delightfully warm, delicious smelly house, give this a try. Make sure you use a small or sugar sweet pumpkin. The grocery store often calls them “pie pumpkins”. Read more ›
A favorite bready side that should definitely become a part of your normal rotation: Sweet Hawaiian Dinner Rolls.
When it starts getting a little cold in the air, there’s nothing that seems to smell so good at a meal than fresh bread. Bread is just like the perfect sidekick to hearty dishes in the Fall and Winter, and I can’t get enough!
I posted a recipe awhile back for Fluffy White Dinner Rolls, and today I wanted to share with you an awesome variation of the recipe to sweeten them up a little. It’s so simple really – you just have to swap the water out for some pineapple juice and milk, and voila! Sweet Hawaiian Dinner Rolls. They are still light, fluffy, and oh so bready, but have just a little more sweet goodness to top them off. Read more ›
Another fruit butter worth getting to know (besides the ever-popular apple variety): Plum Butter. With the sweet and slightly tangy plum flavor and a few spices to top it off, you will have yourself a tasty spread!
About a week or so ago, I found myself with a huge, huge bowl of plums. My mother-in-law said she had them on her tree, but had never really used them much, and would I like some? Well, of course! Who can turn down fresh anything, right? But, then I just wasn’t in the mood to straight up eat them, and I just wasn’t getting any inspiration of what to make with them.
Ben and I started doing some searching. Tarts, galettes, they all sounded good, but just not what I was in the mood for. And then it hit us: Plum Butter. Read more ›
