The smell of pumpkin
pie is permeating the house, my son has called me blessed - just
because of that same pie - and the plethora of fresh apples we picked
on a recent vacation is overflowing my refrigerator.
Autumn must really be here - and this is our
favorite time of year. We miss all
of the summer berries, but we have had our fill and we are truly
enjoying the autumn harvest as new squashes and fruit show up at our
local produce market and grocer. If
it's been a while since you've made a butternut squash soup or a
homemade pumpkin pie, then perhaps it's time to revisit some delicious
and easy recipes.
Pie - This pie is so easy to make and so delicious that we
have it often at our house. Sometimes
we even eat all of the leftovers for breakfast the next day.
Sister's Stew - This stew is a great addition to the holidays.
It reminds us of the food the original
pilgrims and Indians ate in
Be sure to read
about the legend of the Three Sister's before you eat it.
link - If you feel a little befuddled with all of the fancy
winter squashes, this is a great link which is sure to help.
We like the sweeter squashes better and the
butternut and sweet dumpling or
carnival squash are our favorites.
bread recipe - The grandmother of one of my daughter's
friends gave us this recipe and we modified it to make it a little more
healthy. It still contains a lot of
sugar, but it's worth every bite.
Soup or (Pumpkin Soup with Peanut
Butter) - Can it be fall without a hearty dish of
pumpkin soup and a nice loaf of warm pumpernickel bread?
Not in our house. Canned
pumpkin is much easier to use in recipes than fresh pumpkins, so both
of these recipes require very little effort.
