Hard to believe, but it is getting to be that time of year when everything seems to be flavored with Pumpkin Pie Spices.
I have never been much of a fan of the spice blend, but I just read an article in one of my cooking mag. that lists the 5 major ingredients and how good they are for you. So...
I chose to make this recipe for The CookBook Game #1, because I rarely cook risotto and thought I could do with some practice (as some members may know, I’m not a great risotto fan). This is a lovely, simple recipe. The most difficult task is de-seeding and chopping up the pumpkin. The flavours...
Quite a few entries in the recent Recipe Challenge used pumpkin or squash seeds - roasted from scratch. I made @Herbie's lovely winning recipe Warm squash, red onion and brown lentil salad. But not for the first time I didn't succeed with cooking the seeds.
Is it to do with the type of squash...

I really need to work on my consistency. They don't look pretty, but they tasted good. Note that the orange color was due to the tomato paste in the dough.
1 1⁄4 cups "00" flour
1⁄2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon kosher salt

I've been eating and discussing eggs all week but have yet to actually come up with a recipe that involves eggs (that I haven't already posted on here previously) for the latest ingredient challenge. I mean, exactly how can I claim a recipe that basically involves one ingredient and seasoning...
I have a MASSIVE over abundance of sage right now - which led me to try and find yummy pasta recipes that incorporated it!
Source is above!
1/2 small butternut pumpkin, peeled, seeded, cut into 2cm...
Well now that the results are in for the different pumpkin recipes, I thought I should share my own little recipe. Pumpkin fritters are a popular treat in my country. However, I recently found this recipe which not only contains pumpkin for making the fritters, but sweet potato as well. These...
So...I tried out the Recipe Drunken Pumpkin Cookies recipe posted by @classic33 for the current CookingBites Recipe Challenge. Here is how they turned out:

These cookies are easy to make but I found I used just over half the Guinness...
How to use up left over pieces of pumpkin or winter squash? I often make tarts or quiches so I thought that would be a good way! Pumpkin loves bacon and sage, so I thought they would work well together in this tart.
Shortcrust pastry (I make my own but of course you could use...
@vegan93 mentioned Jamie Oliver and I decided to look him up since I had never heard of him before. Once I found the site I figured why not find my final recipe for the Cookingbites Challenge and this is what I came up with.
1 pumpkin , or squash (roughly 900g)
4 cm piece of...
It took me while to work this one out. I'm not the greatest when it comes to cooking sweet things! I think this works well though and the pumpkin has a slightly coconut taste when combined into the cream cheese and cream. You could make a less calorific version by using ricotta in place of the...
Pumpkin, Paneer and Green Bean Curry
This is a very straightforward vegetarian/vegan curry. Add as much chilli as you wish. I made this today for my daughter who is a vegetarian but doesn't much like chilli - so I keep the chilli content low. But before serving up to the rest of the family I'll...
I adore Moroccan tagines (stews) and they work incredibly well as vegetarian/vegan dishes. This one combines two kinds of 'squash' - earthy sweet pumpkin (or butternut squash), with the fresh rather watery taste of vegetable marrow or courgettes (zucchini). To get the pretty striped effect on...
