13 Sep Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Fall Flavors Edition

Darlings, sometimes A Thing in life just has to be said. “No, I do not love you anymore.” “Yes, that hat is stupid but it works for you, somehow.” “Your tattoo actually says ‘fishmonger’.” Etc.   What I am trying to allude to here is that the pumpkin spice phenomenon has finally gone too far. And please know as I say this that I speak as a woman who has four different kinds of pumpkin…

05 Sep Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Early Fall Edition

Remember how last week, so hauntingly, I mentioned that pumpkin beers and pumpkin spice lattes were already out this year, menacing the lingering heat of summer still loitering on our streets? Well. For those who are thrilled about the notion of Pumpkinpalooza beginning before September, I have some things for you. For those of you channeling your inner Grumpy Cat about it all, I also have some things for you.   Because I love you…

29 Oct Pumpkin Oat Pancakes

Eighty-eight black and white keys stare up at me. I sit in front of a piano I’ve been listening to since I could barely reach those keys. My hands rest at center C waiting. I wait as well, hoping for uninvited inspiration. My tired eyes glance at the ivory pegs my mother once tapped at to serenade my brother and I awake on most early sunday mornings. I let my mind wander. I push it…

17 Oct Spiced Pumpkin Oat Cookies with Pumpkin Seeds

Strained eyes struggle to focus on the word-littered screen as tired bodies around the table groan and giggle in delirium.

Bowls, spoons, mixers and baking are replaced with press kits, CDs, printers and work. With my business partner to my right, the band to my left, we are a streamlined assembly…

06 Oct Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

My feet barely stabilize my bumbling, energetic body as I dart around from one pen to the next. The velcrow flaps left carelessly unhinged, collect strands of hay and clumps of dirt.  My prepubescent, shrill voice spews out nonsense as I try to make up my mind. My small brother trying to keep up, pulls at my arm, pushes me, or yells – whatever it takes to get my attention. He thinks he knows better….

18 Oct Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Soup

My love for pumpkin during the fall-time is almost comedic. Today I went to the grocery store. I came home with pumpkins and nothing else. Roasted pumpkin seeds, jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin soup. Is there anything that can’t be made with pumpkin? Is there anything that isn’t made with pumpkin in October? If you read culinary blogs or food magazines, eat out on a regular basis or at…
