It’s Tasty Tuesday!

Gina Knuppenburg: French Croissant Workshop

I had the pleasure of attending a French Croissant Workshop last week. It was the first step in crossing off a goal on my life bucket list: make chocolate croissants from scratch. To find out how Gina’s adventure READ MORE.

 

Anita Stafford: Chocolate Kiss Bundt Cake

At holiday time I am often desperate for help in the kitchen. If you stop by to visit while I’m cooking, you may find yourself wearing an apron, and I’m not picky about age or gender. I handed the recipe for this chocolate bundt cake to an eleven-year-old boy. I was up to my neck preparing casseroles, and I was running out of time to finish the baking. He had never baked a cake before, and he did an amazing job. He’s my official sous chef now. His cake was the centerpiece for the dessert table. I think it has everything that makes a cake perfect. It’s easy, it’s pretty, and it’s chocolate. For the recipe READ MORE

 

 

Keisha McKinney: Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

The weather got cool this week. The afternoon sun is perfection. My yard is covered with leaves and the colors they are a changing. All that means is when I’m on Pinterest and I see anything pumpkin, my eyeballs turn to hearts and I get all googly eyed!!!

Such was the case last week when I ran across a new pumpkin bread recipe from the Domestic Rebel. Baby cravings have me eating all kinds of weird things at odd times, but in the middle of the afternoon I decided it was time to make a treat we could eat after dinner that night….. so I did.

Mel Lockcuff and Debbie Arnold: Published on Key Ingredients

Once upon a time, Mom would chop up a head of iceberg, throw on some mayo and call it a salad. Maybe toss in a chopped tomato for a special occasion. Salad was always a bridesmaid, never a bride. Seen, but not heard. In the chorus, not the star. You get the idea – boring!

No More Boring Salads!

Lydia Sartain: Sweet Potato Brownies

I did not think I would fall into the continued excitement over the “Sweet Potato Brownies”, in fact I laughed with a good friend about how they sound more like “Frownies, fake brownies”. The truth is the recipe has been around for a while but for some reason just now caught everyone’s attention on social media and Pinterest. I decided I needed to try them for myself and see if they were worth all the fuss.  READ MORE

Pumpkin Roll Anita Stafford

Anita Stafford: Pumpkin Roll

I know this is pumpkin season, but I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of the traditional pumpkin pie. I do, however, love a good pumpkin roll. If you’re planning to make a pumpkin roll for the holidays, THIS is it. This recipe was inspired from Trisha Yearwood’s pumpkin roll, but it has been adapted a bit. The recipe was already great, but my sister thought of adding freshly ground nutmeg and walnuts, and now it is super. But don’t take my word for it, I’ll let the pumpkin roll speak for itself.  READ MORE

 

pumpkin spice eggnog keri bucci

Keri Bucci: Pumpkin Spice Eggnog

Eggnog is one of those things that starts to arrive on store shelves and on our table around November.
It’s a truly classic drink that is rarely drunk outside of the holiday season like another favorite of mine, pumpkin spice lattes. It has a thick rich texture and a taste that is unique. It is a taste one that people either love or hate.  READ MORE

Pumpkin Spice Gooey Butter Cake - The Adventures of Mel

Mel Lockcuff: Pumpkin Spice Gooey Butter Cake

Pumpkin Spice Gooey Butter Cake is a spinoff of one of my favorite desserts. Growing up in St. Louis, gooey butter cake was really popular. There’s just something really yummy about cream cheese mixed together with butter and powdered sugar. And then, of course, there’s the chewy crust and the crackle-y top, probably my favorite things about this dessert. READ MORE

Pumpkin Cheesecake with White Chocolate-Toffee-Buttermilk Ganache

Debbie Arnold: Pumpkin Cheesecake with White Chocolate-Toffee-Buttermilk Ganache

The filling and crust for this Pumpkin Cheesecake with White Chocolate-Toffee-Buttermilk Ganache are the same as those for my recent Pumpkin Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Praline Pecan Cheesecake. It takes on a whole new personality with a simple change in the topping. You could also change it up by using graham crackers or vanilla wafers for the crust.

It’s Tasty Tuesday {The Pumpkin Edition, Round 1}

Our posts for this week’s edition of It’s Tasty Tuesday all feature some of our favorite pumpkin recipes. If you’ve been thinking of a pumpkin as a vegetable, well it’s time you got it straight. A pumpkin is technically a fruit because it is a product of the seed-bearing structure of flowering plants; it develops from the blossom.

According to the Huffington Post, “the pumpkin is more accurately classified as a berry. A berry is defined as the fleshy fruit produced from one single ovary.”  Now you can tell your kids, “eat your fruits,” even though you’ve put them on their plates as veggies. We’re smart that way.

Not to blow your mind or anything, but a strawberry isn’t a berry. Watermelons, avocados and bananas are though.

So, there ya’ have it. We don’t really care whether it’s a fruit or a vegetable just as long as we get to enjoy it’s deliciousness. So whether it’s pie or soup, stewed or candied, we’re all about enjoying the season affectionately known as Pumpkin Spice time!

Pumpkin Chili : James Moore, Busvlogger

 

With ingredients like pumpkin, cinnamon and corn, Pumpkin Chili sounds a little different. Well, it is; a great kind of different! It’s become one of our family traditions and it’s just so easy.

Although the daytime temperatures are still summertime hot, you might want to grab a jacket for early morning or night time. The season is changing and that brings changes in what we cook and bake. One of the fall tastes most people enjoy is pumpkin. There are so many different ways to use pumpkin, and muffins are just one example. READ MORE

Lacie Ring: Easy 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Pumpkins

And for your sweet tooth cravings, Lacie Ring of Easy Peasy Pleasy shares these cute as…well…pumpkins! Could they be any more precious?

It’s Fall Y’all! The weather may still be warm in my neck of the woods but I know it’s Fall just by looking at my yard…It’s covered with leaves.

I don’t know about y’all but in Arkansas it cools down for a couple days then heats right back up. Have you ever heard the expression “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a few minutes”? I believe that quote comes from Mark Twain and he was speaking of Arkansas. LOL! Ok, so maybe he wasn’t speaking of Arkansas but the saying definitely works for any of us in the southern states! Being that is officially fall, I am working on all kinds of Fall treats. One of those treats is these cute little peanut butter pumpkins. Read More

 

CINNAMON PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE: Keri Bucci

How can something sugar free and low carb be so good? Keri Bucci, our October Blogger of the Month, shows us how with her Cinnamon Pumpkin Cheesecake. Check it out on her blog, My Table of Three.

Fall is my favorite time of the year, it always has been. I look forward to Fall activities, pumpkin spice everything and most of all, cooler weather. We are starting to see some leaves falling to the ground here and there, but our daily temperatures are still in the mid to upper nineties. So typical for our weather, here in the south.

So it looks like I will be waiting a little longer for those cooler temps, but that doesn’t mean I have to wait on the pumpkin. Thank goodness, because I don’t think I could have passed up a slice of this cheesecake even if I had wanted to. READ MORE

Confetti Pepper Jelly: Jeanetta Darley

When you pick a peck of peppers, what do you next? One of my favorite solutions is to make pepper jelly.  And if you have a variety of colors in your pepper peck, it makes for a fun and tasty condiment that hopefully (fingers crossed) lasts you till the next growing season.  The bright colors of the different peppers give the jelly a confetti look just the right touch for a party.

Mexican-style Brown Rice: Jamie Smith

Does your family adore Mexican-style rice but you’d rather it have just a bit better nutrition? My Mexican-style rice uses reduced-sodium ingredients, making this recipe much less salty than what you would find from a flavor packet. Also, I use Riceland brown rice, which is usually considered better nutritionally than most white rices. This delicious, incredibly easy recipe is great as a side item or as a filler for burritos and other Tex-Mex dishes. READ MORE…

Polly's Apple Pie via Katharine Trauger of Home's Cool

Polly’s Apple Pie: Katharine Trauger

Our gal, Katharine Trauger of Home’s Cool, shares the pie that made her learn to love apple pie. Since it’s apple season in Arkansas, we thought this was one you’d want to put on your baking menu now. Do you make apple pies ahead of time and freeze them? They’re one of the easiest to freeze and enjoy later.

Polly was the mother of one of our dearest friends. She lived a life punctuated with fabulous sugary creations. We have found we need to eliminate lots of purely sugary downloads, but I make exceptions for Thanksgiving or very special company.

This pie is one of the exceptions. The secrets to it are: real butter, too much sugar, and the baking time and temp. The bottom crust will be a bit difficult to manage, but you will NOT care.  Read More
