Teal Pumpkin & Trick or Treating

The Teal Pumpkin Project A follower of mine on Instagram enlightened me to this project and I wanted to share it with you all immediately, just in case any of you could use this information for either this year or preparing for the next.  Trick or Treating can be a scary thing for those kids with food allergies, food sensitivities, or other diseases that have worse consequences.  This project looks like it could help.  We need to help...

Pumpkin Mocha

Pumpkin Mocha  It is that time of year when the clouds start to cover the greying sky, the smell of wood fires waft in with the autumn breezes, and the leaves turn various shades of gold to orange to red and rustle about.  You feel the brisk air and see the smoky haze lift from the grass in the mornings and think how wonderful it would be to stay at home, snuggled in a blanket watching a crackling fire.   We do not have the luxury of...

Pumpkin Spice Mousse, Coconut Whip An ode to fall.  I started working on my Pumpkin Spice Whip recipe last fall, and now I finally get to post it.  Hooray!  It can be used either as an addition your pancakes or waffles, a dip for other sweets, or to top your coffee and/or hot chocolate on those cool, cloudy days.  If you are making a Cake, this would be a wonderful filling or frosting.  I think I have done it all with this coconut...

Jesse’s Grilled Coho Salmon

First and foremost, this is my hubby’s recipe.  He came up with it after a trek to Alaska, for a long weekend Ocean fishing trip with his brother and father, several years ago.  After he returned, he scrubbed the fish smell off, shaved (thank goodness, I am not a facial hair kind of gal) and recouped, he showed me an amazing spice blend.   Now Jesse purchased this spice blend in a little general store, somewhere in the middle of...

Most people like baked squash when it is coated in sugar and cinnamon.  I am also one of those people, but I wanted to try something new and not so sweet.  I did grow up with my mom making baked, apples and squash with brown sugar, cinnamon and a heavy hand of  “real butter”,  as she used to emphasize.  The aroma of  browned butter and sweet fall filled our little house.   I know I tease about how she can’t cook, and...

Seasonal Baked Squash Seeds

  Seasonal Winter Squash Oven Baked Seeds   Recently I made a couple items from Butternut and Acorn Squashes, but what to do with the seeds?  Eat them of course, but first let’s give them some seasoning and a tiny dabble of oil and wa laa a healthy fun seasonal snack.  I don’t like to waste if I don’t have to, and why throw these away.  No there may not be many seeds in other squashes, versus a traditional...
