Homemade Pumpkin more canned

Well, as many of you know I am ´"from scratch" baker....except for pumpkin pie. Up till now I have been lucky enough to have a can of pumpkin pie filling in my pantry. Well, this can....but I did have 3 Hokaido Pumpkins and my neighbor says to me...."I will cook the pumpkin for you if you do the rest" Of course I say yes and voila....the pie came out more than perfect and oh my God....does it taste good.

I found the recipe on else?!)

The year in review....part one

As I write this post, it is the 16th of November.....10:30am......HOW can it already be the 16th of NOvember? Already I feel the pressure and the stress of the holidays upon me and I hate that. THe advent season is to be one of peace, happiness, joy, etc., why is it that I am already counting the days till it is all over? I used to love the holidays....I decorate on thanskgiving, I drive my family crazy with christmas music, I write my christmas letter and make homemade treats for friends and family. Last year I only managed the decorating, this year I fear that I will not even manage that. Who are what is to blame? The job only in part as I am gone most of the day, but I do think I can blame my job alone. With every year I feel like I am sinking deeper and deeper into a big dark hole. So tell me, how do I get out of it? Last year I thought the that having the whole family on one side of the ocean for the holidays was reason enough to celebrate and enjoy....did not pan out. And this year, with no vistors to look forward to, I feel like canceling the whole event entirely.

My plea: help me find the Christmas Spirit.........

Tooo Yummy to be true

Have I told you about the new cookbook that came in the mail the other day? Well, was kind enough to deliver the latest cookbook from the pioneer woman. Needless to say it made my day and now that I have tried the first 2 recipes out of the book, it also made my Sunday complete.....although....note to self: next time remember the margarittas!

The first recipe I tried out was MANGO PICO de GALLO.....who knew that a mango could be soooooo good?

The second recipe I tried was, BEEF and CHICKEN FAJITAS.....again who knew? Now, I had to adjust this recipe just a touch. A: I did not have Worcestershire sauce, so in my need(on a sunday no stores open) I used Soy Sauce and B: no idea what skirt steak is, so I used beef roulades(long thin pieces of beef which you normally fill and roll up and then fry in the pan and serve with a gravy)

You can find the list of ingredients to both recipes in her new book, titled The Pioneer Woman Cooks--a year of Holidays.

Happy New Recipe Sunday everyone. Please do share your new recipes with us!
