Graveyard Pudding

Graveyard Pudding with Milano Tombstones and Nutter Butter Ghosts
I’ve found so many cute and easy themed Halloween recipes this year. A few leftover Oreos the other night led to dirt pudding…which led to a night full of Nutter Butter ghosts and Milano tombstones. Combine all three into one dessert and you have Graveyard Pudding. Way better than the traditional dirt pudding with the lone gummy worm hanging over the side. Individual cups or one giant bowl of Graveyard Pudding would be perfect for a Halloween Party. Continue reading “Graveyard Pudding” »

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip BrowniesWe’ve had a lonely can of pumpkin puree in our pantry for a year now and I finally found the perfect use for it in this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies (originally from Pennies on a Platter.)

Pasta Primavera

This has become one of our favorite fancy fall-back meals. This dinner started with a recipe from one of the cookbooks we received as a wedding present.

Gradually, we started to add whatever ingredients we had on hand that night until it became this Pasta Primavera free-for-all dish. We usually add zucchini, squash, and tomato. Occasionally we throw some corn in to. We’ve also added garlic, lemon juice, fresh basil, and a bunch of other ingredients I’m sure at one time or another.

Whatever we toss in, this dish never fails to satisfy and the basic Alfredo sauce never changes. We usually make a half batch of sauce to try to keep it a little healthier (no easy task when you have a recipe that calls for butter, heavy whipping cream, and a load of Parmesan). The recipe below is for the full batch of sauce. Sometimes you just need to splurge on some homemade comfort food…that’s what this dish is for us. Enjoy! Continue reading “Pasta Primavera” »
