Pumpkin

For the next couple of weeks, we are going to play this little game called “How many Thanksgiving recipes can Justine make before Thanksgiving?” I know, I’ve already been down the pumpkin road a couple of times (ten times, if you are watching closely), but there is more to Thanksgiving than just pumpkin! I made …

  So that’s it everyone! I hope everyone has just as much fun as we did whipping up these great pumpkin recipes. There are some things to know before you start cooking because I’m sure all of you will be making all of these recipes? Right? I will believe it even if it’s not true …

  Macaroni and cheese of any kind is always a favorite around here. What I love about macaroni and cheese is that you can put just about any spin on it and make it delicious. I have had butternut squash mac and cheese in the past, so I had a feeling that pumpkin would work …

  We couldn’t go through this 10 Days of Pumpkin series without making pumpkin doughnuts at some point. Doughnuts (or donuts) are like anything else out there.

  Zach and I are suckers for a good mole sauce. Just a couple of weeks ago we visited Salt Lake City and ate at Red Iguana one night for dinner. We were in mole heaven! If you are ever in the Salt Lake area check out one of their restaurants. Their food is extremely …

  I learned a few things today. Number one: biscotti are delicious (well I kind of knew this already). Number two: pumpkin biscotti are even more delicious (ESPECIALLY with hazelnuts). Number three: who knew that you probably have all of the ingredients for biscotti hiding inside your pantry?! I don’t know why I never realized …

  I’m sorry I’ve been MIA for the past two days. There is this little thing called “flash flooding” going on all around us. Let’s just say it’s been a scary and insane week. Unfortunately, we are in for round 2 in the next 24 hours and the rain just doesn’t seem to want to …

  So, if you haven’t noticed or you have been living in a hole for the past 24 hours, we have been getting pummeled with rain. There is flooding occuring all over the front range of Colorado. Buildings and roads are collapsing. People are being evacuated; and it’s just plain scary. This being the case, …
