It’s almost here! Halloween is just over two weeks away. Have you figured out your costume yet? I know we’ll have all sorts of ghosts, witches, and NFL players trick-or-treating at our door. But before that happens, there will be Halloween parties galore with neighbors and co-workers…and I couldn’t be more excited!
These Cilantro Lime Grilled Sweet Potatoes are one of our favorite summer recipes! Wow! What a great weekend we just had up here in New England! The leaves are at their peak colors, and the temperatures are in the mid-upper 60’s. Saturday was loaded with some great college football games, and of course Sunday’s slate […]
Every Fall it seems like Oktoberfest celebrations pop up all over the place. The real Oktoberfest takes place in late September/early October in Munich, Germany…but that doesn’t stop all of the celebrations and festivities in other locales. Heck, sometimes my wife and I host our very own Oktoberfest! (By host, I mean purchase delicious Oktoberfest […]
Eggplant gets a bad rap. Sure, it has a somewhat spongy texture that is a bit odd. But it’s also loaded with all sorts of good nutrients, too! And on top of that, eggplant can be delicious when it’s prepared well. A couple of years ago, I had some delicious eggplant “meatballs” which really changed […]
I have a confession to make. I didn’t like pumpkin until just a couple of years ago. As a kid, pumpkins were things you carved every Halloween. Sure, we sometimes toasted the pumpkin seeds, but I never understood why people ate pumpkin. I remember wondering why someone would want to eat the stringy stuff that […]
I love weekend breakfasts. There’s something about a hot cup of coffee (I’ve been loving Green Mountain’s pumpkin coffee lately!) and a delicious baked treat that makes me want out of bed and get the day started. (During the week I usually stick to yogurt and granola…which is delicious, but it just can’t top a […]
I’ve been baking my heart out lately! Last week was Red Velvet Pancakes and Rustic Apple Tarts, and the week before was Chocolate Espresso Muffins. Needless to say, I’ve had dessert and breakfast covered for several weeks now. But sadly, I can’t just eat baked goods for dinner. (Well, I guess I could…but that would mean more […]
Now that October is just around the corner, it’s time to turn our attention to one of my favorite baking ingredients ever…Pumpkin! Check out some of the links below for some ridiculously tasty Fall pumpkin recipes!
I think my love of apples and baking is pretty established now. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been eating apples with nearly every meal. I’ve had apple bread for breakfast, apple tarts for dessert, and of course just plain sliced apples for lunch. If the old adage has any truth to it, then […]
Ok. It’s official. I’ve been bitten attacked by the baking bug! This happens every Fall for me. Football returns. The weather gets cooler. And I fire up the oven. Fresh bread. Pies. Cakes. Pancakes. You name it…I probably love baking it! Of course, the fact that crisp, juicy apples are all over the place right […]
One of my favorite things about Fall is the arrival of apples. My wife and I went apple picking with friends last week, and I think we picked about 45 pounds of apples in all. So you can imagine what my fridge looks like right now! I eat a crisp, juicy apple every day for […]
I told you it was coming! And now it’s here. Fall Baking Season has finally arrived! I was flipping through my recipes and notes a couple of days ago, and I came across this recipe for chocolate muffins that I got when my wife and I were on vacation in Scotland this summer. I figured […]
