Celebrating All Things Pumpkin


This is somewhat of a hindsight entry meaning that the recipes to come would have been great with a Thanksgiving brunch, lunch, or dinner, but there is still one more big day to celebrate in 2009. Fall and winter brings good tidings of pumpkin in the form of pumpkin pies, pumpkin spiced coffees and lattes, pumpkin custard, pumpkin bars, pumpkin martinis, pumpkin muffins…needless to say there’s many. With all of the pumpkin treats that become abundantly available this time of year, we decided to get ourselves a pumpkin to see what kind of convivial eats we could come up with to share with our loved ones really using all of the elements of the pumpkin. Two very safe, yet adventurous ideas came to mind- the toasted pumpkin seed- done three ways, and a very fresh take on the always a winner cheesecake- you know where that one’s going. Read on to see how you can add a little something to your next holiday get together.
