So Many Pumpkins...and Recipes!

One pumpkin per kid, four kids. That's a lot of pumpkin guts!
It is the day before Samhain, also known as Halloween. I spend this day preparing the pumpkins for tonight, when my kids will carve the lovely orange orbs. We try not to waste much, so there will be quite a few pumpkin infused meals in the days to come.
Cleaning Out Pumpkins My two-year-old son is helping gut the gourds. This wonderful new Super Goop Scoop works very well, and leaves the inside fairly smooth (compared to the old scoops, doesn't leave a bunch of danglies). I separate the seeds, the strands (dark stringy stuff that hangs loosely inside), and the pulp (scraped from inside wall).
Roasted Seeds Fresh pumpkin seeds (from 2 average pumpkins) 1 tbsp olive oil (or butter) 1/2 tsp salt (I used smoked sea salt) 1/4 tsp garlic powder 1/8 tsp Chipotle powder 1 tsp brown sugar Preheat oven to 300Β°F. In a medium bowl, toss seeds, oil, andseasonings. Spread seeds evenly on cookie sheet and place in preheated oven. Roast 50 minutes. Remove from oven, cool, and enjoy!
[Sweet] Pumpkin Butternut Squash Chili 1 lb ground beef, browned and strained 1 can red beans 1 can pink or pinto beans 1 large butternut squash, cut into 1/2 inch cubes 1 cup pumpkin strands (or puree--my kids like the stringy texture of the strands) 1 can diced tomatoes (Italian seasoned) 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 tsp garlic powder 1 to 6 tsp chili powder 1/2 tsp Chipotle powder 1/2 tsp nutmeg Slow-cook all ingredients on low 3 hours. Top with shredded cheese and/or sour cream. Serve. (Serves 6 to 10)
Apple Pumpkin Compote (or Whoops! I Broke the Pie) 2 Cups apple slices, peeled and cored 1/2 cup pumpkin strands 2 tsp butter 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1/2 tsp cinnamon french vanilla ice cream sugar wafers or pizzelle cookies (pictured) On medium-low heat, melt butter. Add sugar and cook until smooth liquid. Add apples, pumpkin, and spices. Cook, stirring frequently, until apples are tender. Spoon into a bowl, top with a scoop of ice cream, garnish with wafers or cookies, and serve!
Pumpkin Puree (in progress) 3 cups pumpkin pulp 2 teaspoons water Slow-cook on low 4-6 hours. Puree in a blender or food processor, adding 1 tsp water, as needed. (Try not to water it down too much.) Bag it and freeze it, or use it immediately in your favorite recipes.
Bread for the Dead It is a tradition in our household to place a loaf of bread on our patio table to provide nourishment for our dearly departed visitors. (Since squirrels and such tend to also make a meal of it, I try to make it critter-friendly.) 1 c flour 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp allspice 1/4 tsp cloves 1 cup pumpkin puree 1/2 cup oil 3 Tbsp maple syrup 3 Tbsp water 1/2 cup sunflower seeds pumpkin seeds or pepitas (optional topping) Preheat oven to 350Β°F. Grease and flour a loaf pan.In a large bowl, mix together flours, sugar, soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.In a small bowl, whisk together pumpkin, oil, syrup, and water. Add wet mixture to dry; combine until just moistened. (The batter will be very thick; don’t worry!) Fold in sunflower seeds. Pour into prepared pan and bake 45-50 minutes or until top is browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 20 minutes; use a butter knife to gently loosen bread from sides of pan, then invert onto a cooling rack.

Faking It On Valentine's Day
Here's a really cool idea for Valentine's Day: FAKE IT! For real! Guys can be either really lazy about V-Day or over-think it and determine to learn new skills, such as cooking, on one of the biggest hyped calendar dates in the year, February 14th. That's probably not the best approach to making the date night more than being memorable for being bad. Instead of trying to bake a cake or cookies, or dare yourself into making fudge, you could avoid a messy crisis and make your own Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. TRUST ME, IT'S EASY! You Will Need: Strawberries (washed and thoroughly dried) Candy Melts (pink and white) Chocolate chips (semi-sweet is best) Edible gold Edible glitter Edible embellishments (there's time to order from Amazon) Directions Melt the Candy Melts and chocolate (according to the package) in their own container/bowl. Dip strawberries into desired bowl and set aside. Drizzle a different color "melt" onto the dipped strawberries. Also, redip the strawberries in another "melt" at the tip and immediately dredge in edible glitter. Set these in a tray in the fridge and take out to de-chill a few moments before eating. These are fruity, gently sweetened with the chocolate and melts, and will look AMAZING with the edible embellishments! Who is going to do this for their Special Valentine!?!?!?! @InPlainSight @BeannachtOreibh @nicolejb @ChriSingularis @ButterflyBlu @Arellano1052 @alywoah @AkashBhojraj @jordanhamilton @MichelleHolly @caricakes @marshalledgar @VeronicaArtino @TessStevens @shannonl5 @NerukaWong @humairaa @buddyesd @TerrecaRiley @danidee @BluBear07 @thePinkPrincess @EasternShell @seouls @matildajgarrett @RobertMarsh @1FallenAngel @alyssastano @Adrienpie @RaquelArredondo @Luci546 @BivianaaChavez @Lushisushi @Danse @DeepakAswal @luna1171 @JPBenedetto @deefran @RogueLeigh @myguardian @Gacrus @MissB82 @Lizzeh @Kyokeo @Emealia @paulisadroid @ShinigamiSan @CurrySoop @baileykayleen @DestinaByrd @ChelseaAustin @xojuliettexox @netchtiBates @aabxo @KellyOConnor @Kamiamon @parktaemi @arnelli @NickySerban @visions2020 @JimTurpen @PrinceCampbell @2Distracted @Dynamo @VKookie47 @medley24 @ZackMcLaughlin @MoisEsGaray @KeziahWright @pppfittu13 @washmydishes @eoin8899 @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @orenshani7 @Alletaire @funnella @DamariusKelley @MariPili @InspirationalMe @Beeplzzz @SamratGolhar @MajahnNelson @hikaymm @AnimeLove300 @SeoInHan @TensaZangetsu98 @carmaa10 @cindystran @AshelyJewell @MaighdlinS @JamiMilsap @xDaisyDaysx @IMDEEPINIT @LisaMarissa @Emmeronsage @LemarDeco @Ash1998 @LessThanThree @TracyLynnn @KaiTakashima @saraortiz2002 @Zxenna @MelissaMae @atmi @Helixx @VanessaSimmons @JessicaChaney @mArshadKhan @MarvelTrashcan @MarkoKaRiambo @VarunNambiar

V-Day Vegan Recipe: Turtle Cheesecake with Pecans, Fudge, and Caramel Drizzle
My father's favorite chocolate was always Turtles. Every Christmas, every birthday, even Easter Sunday, and every Valentine's Day, we all knew exactly which candy we were going to surprise him with. As my sister became more and more invested in her vegan diet, however, she eventually upgraded her Turtle gift into this truly decadent vegan Turtle cheesecake, topped with pecans, caramel sauce, and hot fudge. Check the ingredients labels, and you should be able to find some vegan hot fudge at the grocery store. Caramel sauce might be a little trickier. However, don't worry. I've made sure to include a homemade recipe for both, so you can make them both from scratch, if needed! -------------------------------------------------------- Vegan Turtle Cheesecake 2 (8-ounce) packages vegan cream cheese (I recommend Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese's original flavor.) 2 cups vegan sour cream 3/4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds 1 vegan chocolate cookie pie crust (Keebler's Chocolate Ready Crust is surprisingly vegan!) 1/4 cup toasted pecans 2 eggs worth of Ener-G Egg Replacer (or any other binding vegan egg replacer of choice) 1 batch of hot fudge topping (see below) 1 batch of caramel topping (see below) 1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. In your largest mixing bowl, blend the vegan cream cheese, vegan sour cream, and sugar using an electric handheld mixer until smooth. 2. Add the vanilla, flour, and flaxseeds and mix for about a minute. It’s important to make sure there aren’t any lumps. Pour your creamy filling into the chocolate crust. 3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Check the center with a toothpick to make sure it’s solid. Pull the cheesecake out of the oven when it is solid to the touch and passes the toothpick test or when the top starts to crack a little and begins pulling from the sides. 4. Cool on a wire rack for around an hour and then top with pecans and sauce (see recipe for sauces below). Refrigerate overnight and then enjoy this wonderful treat! For the Hot Fudge Topping: 1 cup Silk vanilla coffee creamer (or any other non-dairy vanilla coffee creamer) 1/2 a bag of vegan chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli, but there are lots of others.) 1/2 cup of sugar 1 tablespoon Earth Balance vegetable spread 1 teaspoon vanilla 1. In a sauce pan, heat the creamer, chocolate, and sugar at medium heat until it starts to boil. Remove from heat and whisk in Earth Balance and vanilla until the mix is smooth and creamy. 2. Let the sauce cool for 30 minutes. (If you have time, put it in the fridge. It will get firm just like fudge!) For the Caramel Topping: 1 cup of light corn syrup 1 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup Earth Balance 1 cup Silk vanilla coffee creamer 1. In a saucepan, heat the corn syrup, brown sugar, and Earth Balance to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes and continue to stir. Combine in creamer, then remove from heat and let cool.
