It’s the second most wonderful time of the year.

pumpkinpatchAutumn, which for me means Thanksgiving, beautifully colored foilage and — Pumpkin Season!!!! When I was a kid, there was pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread and maybe pumpkin cookies. Of course I felt wrongfully deprived because my mother did not like pumpkin, so I guess over the past almost two decades since I left home, I’ve been making up for lost time with milkshakes, lattes, doughnuts, soups, ravioli.., you name it. Today I found a recipe for pumpkin nutella cheesecake danishes that I will definitely add to my list of things to try this season.

Cooking on the radio.

Today I was a special guest on Diva in Demand’s Thinking Out Loud/Friday Nooner Edition. We talked about baking (speaking of which, I’m still working on that video, I really, really am 😉 ) and answered some questions from some of her listeners. I got lost on my notes once, but I think I did okay. I’ve been cooking stuff since I was a kid and sometimes when I’m in the kitchen I can remember things that my mother and father showed me. Sometimes it makes me not miss them so much and sometimes it makes me miss them more, but I know I’m blessed because I can pick up a phone and call them.
