Fall recipes… revisited.

This looks familiar your saying to yourself. Well at least those who have been hanging around these parts for the past year. And well, if you haven’t been, nor have you had the inclination to dig into the past, I’ll make it easy for you.  Your starter, main and dessert. We’ll start with dessert first.

Pumpkin Bread pudding with Spicy Apple Caramel sauce

This is also my little hello and no, I haven’t fallen off the edge of the blog sphere. My bricks and mortar shop, Chez Chloe (check out the new website), had a hopping summer and I’ve been busy busy preparing for the holidays. My dear husband and number one eater is off to Germany for one last round of teaching and then turning in his papers to become a full time US of A resident on the one and only Orcas Island in the Evergreen State! Three cheers!!! My cooking and photos tend to wain when he is away.

Here is a starter that is a little out of the ordinary. Try this with your next fall meal. It was a hit.

Pumpkin and Feta Salad with Maple Vinaigrette

I see I was having some fun with fonts last fall:)

Here is a wonderful stew to serve between your starter and dessert.  Inspired by a post from my friend at Karista’s Kitchen, Mulligatawny is an anglo-Indian recipe often served with chicken but I used beef and will make it again soon with lamb.

This salad, stew and dessert made the perfect fall meal.

Hope all is right in your world and the colorful leaves fall gently around you.

Enjoy.

I love the fall.  The weather here has been beautiful. Cool and windy and not a lot of rain. The colors are incredible! Here are a couple things coming out of the kitchen right now. I accidentally put the oven on broil  instead of bake! Grrrr……But the bread flipped over looked and tasted great.

Baked kurbis (pumpkin) and banana bread

Here’s the inspiration for the pumpkin soup (lactose free)

Pumpkin soup with coconut milk

  • one small baked pumpkin (salt,pepper & a little olive oil)
  • carmelized onions
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • approx 2 cups chicken stock/broth
  • green thai curry
  • fish sauce
  • fresh lime
  • roasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds with a dash of tamari.

Just go for it and make it taste good to you!

As for the banana bread. The recipe is from Nigella Lawson’s How to be a Domestic Goddess. But no raisins. Bleck. Read below for recipe.  I like this banana bread even more the next day. It’s so moist, but I still love to slather it with butter or cream cheese. Hmmm…. how many weight watcher points would that be?
