pumpkin swirl brownies

We really enjoyed David Lebovitz’s cream cheese brownie recipe and I will definitely make them again, but I had to test another idea. I wanted something seasonal, so instead of plain cheesecake swirled through brownies, I buried pumpkin cheesecake in the brownies.

In the past, I’ve made these with add-ins such as butterscotch chips and pecans and omitted both glazes. This time, I made the scones as directed with both glazes. Well, […]

I can’t believe I never posted this recipe! It won a prize in a local contest a few years back and it’s easy to make. The pumpkin makes it quite holidayish and it’s a great alternative for those who don’t like pumpkin pie. I am having trouble finding a picture of the original, but there’s […]

chocolate pumpkin bundt cake magazines

I came home from vacation ready to bake, but there were piles of laundry and personal matters to attend to. Experimenting in the kitchen wasn’t an option, so I turned to my fresh pile of cooking magazines for inspiration. I found it in the November issue of Eating Well – Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake. I […]

As for ours, some food bloggers were put in a separate division and submitted entries a while back. Winners will be posted in October, but I thought I’d tell you about our entries now.  […]
