Every day I spend so much time looking at recipes and food blogs. I often get asked, “Don’t I ever get tired of looking at food all day, every day?” Honestly, no. As a Professional Recipe Developer, I am always looking for new, creative ideas for inspiration. I have seen so many incredible pumpkin recipes and ideas lately that I had to share them with you, starting with a recipe from Lisa for Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pistachio Bread from her blog, With Style & Grace. Pumpkins are a nutritional powerhouse, and I hope you”ll enjoy some of these incredible ideas and recipes.
Here are some of my other favorites:
Maple Pumpkin Fudge from Sugarcrafter
Pumpkin Granola from Chocolate and Carrots
Studded Pumpkins from Gordon Gossip and Horchow
Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake Cooking on the Side
Stacked Monogram Pumpkins from Better Homes and Gardens
Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes by Annie Eats
Pumpkin Vegetable Tray from Taste of Home
A friend of mine asks me all of the time what is my favorite food blog or the newest food blog to check out? That is such a difficult question because I have too many to name. I look at so many blogs everyday, and I thought I would share some of my favorite blog posts from last week.
Apple Cider Doughnut Holes from Sugarcrafter Tracy’s doughnuts look amazing and fun, and I love the touch of Apple Cider in these.
Pizza Sauce Three Ways from Simple Bites Simple Bites gives incredibly complete how-to information in every post. These sauces look so good..a must do.
Cheerios and Chocolate Halloween Tarts from Family Fresh Cooking These are so creative, fun, child-friendly and healthy. I love that Marla used almond butter and dates, two of my favorites.
Smoky Black Bean and Corn Vegetarian Chili from Cookin’ Canuck Dara’s chili looks so flavorful, comforting and heartwarming and best of all, vegetarian.
Fig Galette from Indian Simmer Prerna’s seasonal dessert recipe not only looks like a breeze to make with very few ingredients, but so decadently delicious.
This year, the holiday celebrating the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, is next weekend. On Rosh Hashanah, it is symbolic to serve and eat apples dipped in honey to hope for a “sweet new year”. Cakes with apples and/or honey are traditionally served, and this Cinnamon Apple Cake can’t get any better. This cake is so delicious and perfect for any fall celebration. I will be preparing it this Thursday night for a Jewish holiday cooking class in Birmingham, Alabama. See my “Media” page for more information.
