Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Cinnamon Spice Glaze

Pumpkin Bread Pudding // Passthesushi.com

Still trying to figure out that holiday menu? That’s ok, because I am too. I have 99 pages marked and magazine recipes flying about and I know that when it comes down to it, the same old sides will be staring my family down the day of. But, if you are looking for something that you could break into steps and make a few days before, this pumpkin bread pudding is perfect. I made the pumpkin loaves a few days before  I wanted to make the pumpkin bread, snacked on a few slices for myself, and when I was ready […]

Pumpkin Pie Fudge

Pumpkin_fudge_0225

Anyone who says they enjoy looking through the catalogs of stores like Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma clearly is not living in the same salary bracket as myself. Now, there’s nothing wrong with that, but personally, it’s like poking myself in the eye with a hot fork. So when this article hit the web and spread like wild fire, I took a 15 minute break at work and laughed out loud. Seriously, if you have not read it yet, close my page and go enjoy it. I’ll let it slide this time. I too had recently received my oversize stack of wishful thinking in the mail and had […]

Pumpkin Pie with Brown Sugar Meringue & a #Pumpkin Recipe Round Up

Pumpkin_Pie_0137

Don’t know about you, but I am in serious denial. Denial that Thanksgiving is next week. Denial that Christmas is like 39 days away. Denial that I won’t be able to try all the new recipes I had planned for you. Denial that my house needs a top to bottom scrubbing before anyone can set their merry little toes in my doorway this season. We may need to form a support group. As for Thanksgiving, I am not prepared. I had plans of posting main dishes and sides, but there was a hurricane, then some sick days, and me working […]

Pumpkin Maple Stack Cake

Maple_Stack_cake_0339

Last week I got to be a kid again. And it was awesome. My dad and I spent the day in Philly, going to the zoo eating out and seeing a concert. It was a blast. I didn’t work, worry about emails, or wonder what was happening on twitter. I was walking around a zoo making sure we didn’t miss anything and pouting because the rhino refused to turn around – for hours. Giant rhino booty does not a good picture make.  (These pics were all taken with my Tameron Lens – seriously, great investment for a walk around lens. […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

pumpkin_cinnamon_rolls_0183

 So yeah, these cinnamon rolls are all over the internet right now, along with anything else pumpkin. I was flipping through my new copy of Baked Elements and trying to figure out what recipes I would test for my review and the entire chapter on pumpkin caught my eye. Fall is here and apples and pumpkin are pretty much on every food blog out there. I’m pretty sure I would have been blacklisted from the food blogging community had I not posted something pumpkin related. When I was making these, I didn’t think I was going to love them. None of the […]

Pumpkin Pie Martini

pumpkin_pie_martini_7

Things have been crazy at the homestead with a lack of internet for over 9 days now. I have to come in to work early and leave late to try to keep things up and running here and the guilt of not commenting on other blogs is driving me a little batty. Ok, that one made me sound crazy. However, Handsome and I have been catching up on some reading and some movies and the house is spotless so I guess there’s some good coming of it. I feel trivial complaining about a lack of the internet when there are […]

Give Thanks {Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Cocoa}

pumpkin_hot_chocolate_8

Whether your table is filled with all the trimmings, house is packed with friends and family, or you are spending this Thanksgiving in a more cozy atmosphere and keeping it small and simple, today is a day to sit back and remind yourself all that you have to be thankful for. First and foremost I am thankful for chocolate. The man that keeps the roof over our heads. And my cute little buddies that fill my home with joy. Cozy flats, good magazines and limitless cookbooks. The amazing friends and family that I will be sharing my plate with today, […]

Top 10 Recipes For Thanksgiving and Gingersnap-Spiced Mini Pumpkin Pies

pumpkin_pie_17

But Miss Kita… you told us last week you didn’t like pumpkin pie…. Liar liar pants on fire. Ok, ok. I hear ya! But the truth is, I don’t like pumpkin pie. There’s just something about it, after about two forkfuls I’m done. Unless there is a mountain, and I mean ridiculous-right-to-your-hips-never-wear-skinny-jeans-again. Ever. kind of mountain of whipped cream on top, I just can’t finish a slice.  Lucky for me, we little bakers have the technology and know how to make pumpkin pie in two forkful sized portions. Now, when we can make hosiery that doesn’t rip on the first wear too, I’ll be a […]

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins – Shh, it’s a Secret Recipe

pumpkin_muffin_2B

You know what I smell? Well besides stuffing, turkeys and brisk leaves in the air… I smell a bunch of secret recipes about to be relieved today. That’s right it’s Secret Recipe Club* day  and this month I got to be a stealthy little ninja over at Melissa’s Cuisine. Melissa’s is a newlywed in her early 20’s spending her free time in the kitchen (minus the newlywed part, I toootally get it ). She cooks because she enjoys it and runs to keep it off (wait, did I pick up mountain biking this year?). And she’s got a pup named Champ. We […]

Pumpkin Pie Waffles

pumpkin_waffle_5

Going into this year’s Thanksgiving, take a step back and remember – no one’s perfect! We’ve all had our fair share of entertaining flops, but take a tip from Julia Child and roll with it. I recently ripped out an article in Rachael Ray magazine where Guy, Spike and a few others I’d never heard of share their Thanksgiving horror stories from dropping turkeys on the ground while almost setting the house on fire to completely forgetting to cook the thing! I knew a person who cooked the whole thing upside down, not knowing any better and it was the […]

Chai Pumpkin Spice Thumbprints

pumpkin_chai_cookies_1

Oh boy, have I been holding out on you. Pause, now re-read that last sentence with a liiittle more enthusiasm. Because I’m not lying and the moment I saw these Pumpkin Spice Kisses, I just had to have them. (Then I got them home and had to figure out what to make with them). After a little debate, my answer was to plop those suckers down into the middle of a chai flavored thumbprint cookie. Inspired by those delicious chai cupcakes last year, and some of the ingredients from that recent chai pie, I knew these would come together nicely. […]

Snapshot Saturday: DIY Lace Pumpkins

pumpkins

Well, it’s not really a snapshot. It’s more of a none step by step tutorial. I saw this killer pumpkin on everyone’s favorite time sink (the same reason this post went from 5 minutes to 35 minutes…) Ok, back to the pumpkin. DIY: Lace Pumpkin Get yourself A pumpkin (I got one of those insanely over priced fake ones from the craft store – never again) 1/2 yard lace (this was way to much for my size pumpkin, but its an awkward shape and I am not down with exact measurements outside of baking – and sometimes not when I’m baking either) Spray adhesive Old newspaper […]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirl Brownies

pumpkinbrownie4

Handsome just found out that I often don’t taste my baked goods before offering them to others. This seemed to shock him. I kinda giggled at it. Yes, it’s basic kitchen knowledge to taste, taste, taste. But really, with baked goods, by the time the item is on the table, I’m done. I know I’m going to make a lot of people cringe, but I do often taste the batter. With most sweet desserts, if the batter doesn’t taste right – neither will the finished product. So, I’d say 99% of the time, I have a pretty good idea how […]

So maybe your stepdad is a zombie — Happy Halloween

pumpkin_cheesecake2

I am the queen at saying things that make you want to chew on your toes. Queen. If the position for emperor is open, I am certainly in the candidacy soon to be running for overlord. With this little tidbit of knowledge in mind I’m going to share a story.   The other night I was at a friends house and his roommate was keeping watch over our attempt to repair my sewing machine with his hot tea in hand. The roommate stood silently for a while while my friend and I carried on around him. Finally he spoke, “So, […]
