Christie Ison: Spicy Pumpkin Carrot Muffins

Whenever I cook with my daughter, I tell her that, whenever possible, to use a “secret” or “surprise” ingredient, something nobody would try on their own, or are hard pressed to pick out exactly what “that something” might be.

GINA KNUPPENBERG: Pumpkin Walnut Baklava

In this guest post by Gina’s blog, Desperately Seeking Gina, Terri of Terri’s Table shares a baklava recipe inspired by Gina’s own Pumpkin Spice Syrup. Get both of those recipes over on Gina’s blog.

Hi! I’m Terri Powers and I blog over at Terri’s Table.
I was  thrilled when Gina asked me to do a guest post for her Month of Pumpkin, so I wanted to post a recipe inspired by her. I know she is mostly vegetarian, so I wanted to make sure it was something she would feel comfortable eating. She loves savory dishes, but I know she likes desserts, too.  Hmmmmm.
Last year Gina posted a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Syrup for making a delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte. I enjoyed those lattes throughout the winter. And that syrup is what gave me the inspiration to make Pumpkin Walnut Baklava. READ MORE

Debbie Arnold: Persimmon Muffins

It’s beginning to be persimmon season in Arkansas. Persimmons are native to China where they’ve been cultivated for centuries. They have, in my opinion, all too frequently been misunderstood. They’ve gotten a bad rap, y’all. Yes, it is true that trying to eat an unripe persimmon will make you pucker up with a real capital P. But if you are patient and wait until they are fully ripe, you’ll be rewarded with a really sweet golden orb of deliciousness. READ MORE

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Asian food. From sushi to egg drop soup there are many I call my favorites. This Coconut Chicken, like many of my other Asian inspired recipes, was born out of my desire to enjoy my favorite dishes but in a healthier way.

Coconut Chicken is my copy cat version of one of my old buffet favorites. In the past, I would pile my plate high of the overly sweet chicken and lavish every bite. Well, that is until I felt like someone was going to have to roll me out of the restaurant. Darn, you buffet food and darn you missing will power!  Read More

The problem with most of the Keto Coffee recipes I’ve seen is that they all require you to blend all of the ingredients together in a blender.

I’m not sure about you but I barely have time to press the brew button on my K-cup machine in the morning, let alone pull out the blender. Plus, I sure don’t want to clean that thing EVERY day!

These Keto disks are my answer to the hassle. The results are tasty and healthy. Read More
