BBQ Pumpkin & Potato Skewers

Before I begin, let me just get this out of the way – these pictures aren’t my favorite. As I’m writing this post, they’re bothering me more and more. Total brown-town. If I wasn’t such a lazy blogger, I’d remake this recipe just to snap better pictures. Add in a splash of color or a...

In another life, I may have been the Great Pumpkin. At the very least, I was its groupie. No, I’m not obsessed with that Charlie Brown movie (in fact, I barely remember it…don’t judge), it’s just it’s a great time of the year. Everyone comes together to joke around, huddle around campfires, and go for...

Geez it’s a blusterous day today! Sandy is wailing away at our house and evacuations are going on everywhere, so what do I decide to do? Spend the day cooking and eating! I’m totally in the mood for something simple and seasonal…after all, Halloween is in a couple of days. Since I ate all the...

Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties

You know when you zonk out in front of the TV and watch something that you’ve seen thousands of times already? Well, this past weekend there was a Harry Potter marathon on and, as usual, it sucked me in. I’ve been a HUGE Potter fan since the books first came out. As a teacher, my...
