Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Snack Cakes and Hot Cocoa

Recipe for pumpkin and chocolate chip snack cakes, topped with a cinnamon glaze and served with pumpkin and cinnamon hot cocoa.

I made these snack cakes to go with an amazing cup of hot cocoa. The cakes have a bit of pumpkin, a touch of spice and a whole lot of chocolate chips. The cocoa is even more special.

Gingerbread Cake with Pears and Caramel

Recipe for a gingerbread loaf cake topped with thinly sliced baked pears and drizzled with homemade salted caramel sauce.

It's not too early in the season for gingerbread, right? Especially when it's a gingerbread cake that's covered in a layer of baked pears and has homemade caramel sauce poured all over it. Surely it's not too soon for that.

Pasta Bake with Beef and Pumpkin

Recipe for a ground beef, pureed pumpkin and pasta bake with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.

Not only is it officially autumn but I was toying with the idea of turning on the heat the other day. I held out, for the time being, but that means it's also now hot cheesy pasta bake season.

Poison Apple Manhattan Cocktail

Recipe for a bourbon cocktail flavored with sweet vermouth, apple cider and Angostura bitters.

The kids can load up on candy at Halloween but the adults should get a treat as well. OK, this adult also eats all the peanut butter cups. But that doesn't diminish my love for a well made cocktail.

Pumpkin Yogurt Parfait with Pumpkin Seed Granola

Recipe for a healthy parfait made with yogurt, pumpkin puree and honey, mixed with homemade pumpkin seed granola.

Are you a fan of pumpkin or is it just a seasonal flavor you're happy to see the back of quickly? Personally, I love it. I love all squash, not just pumpkin. But definitely pumpkin, whether sweet or savory.
