Pumpkin Spice Syrup


Eating or drink anything with the blend of cinnamon, clove, all spice, nutmeg, and ginger always get me into the Autumn or Halloween spirit. 

I was so ready for it I made my own Pumpkin Spice Extract, you should go check it out. Keep a look out for all the yummy Pumpkin Spice baked goods I'll be making the next two months.

Did you know that Pumpkin Spice has been around since the 1890's? Who knew that our great-great grandparents were the inventors of our Pumpkin Spice obsession.

Use this syrup in your coffee, hot chocolate, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, and scones.  Anything that you would want syrup on it you can use this. Add to some half and half or almondmilk to make creamer.

Honey Butter Bread

What is better than honey and butter together?
Very few things are better than honey and butter, maybe peanut butter and chocolate, pizza and beer, macaroni and cheese. List goes on and on.

You have seen my love of carbs in previous post but my real love is fresh hot bread. The yeasty taste just makes me happy dance.  

Most of the time store bought bread falls flat in the flavor department. They maybe have honey wheat bread, potato bread, raisin bread and lately I've seen Hawaiian bread that you can buy in a loaf style. But nothing comes with flavor that make me say WOW.

These bread will do it. This recipe is like a sourdough starter a Poolish but doesn't take as much time to make but you still get the flavor of it giving it a slight tang to it and the honey give it a slight sweetness.

Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

Peanut plus chocolate is always a great combo together if you ask me. The slight saltiness of the peanut butter complement the creamy sweet chocolate.
I have seen a lot of food companies in the last couple of months coming out with peanut butter and chocolate foods like coffee creamer and a doughnut chain coming out with a doughnut with a chocolate glaze and peanut butter drizzle.
You would think that they would come out maybe around Halloween time, it is just around the corner I need to find a countdown, because the colors look like black and orange.
These cookies are chocolaty and fudgy like a brownie with slightly saltiness of peanut butter. Yum! I tried a new-ish product for this recipe, peanut butter powder, for the drizzle.

Chicken Carbonara Bake

A great combo of Chicken Carbonara that you can get at a restaurant and the crispy crust you get when you have baked macaroni and cheese.

I get Chicken Carbonara everytime I go to Olive Garden, they have it with just chicken and also chicken and shrimp. To me its sauce is lighter than a Chicken Alfredo that has a strong garlic taste and heavy sauce.
It doesn't hurt that it comes with bacon or pancetta (an Italian bacon). The only different between bacon and pancetta is how they prepare it. Pancetta is rolled. They are both delicious.
Make this the day before so when you get home you just need to pop it in the oven and have dinner in minutes.

Thick-Cut Home Fries

This is a quick and easy side dish that everyone will love even picky eater. These home fries are my mothers recipes that she's made for years.
Here original home fries use russet potatoes but I had yellow potatoes left over from making gnocchi last week so I decided to use them.  The golden potatoes have a little more flavor and slightly sweeter than russets.

You only need 4 ingredients: potatoes, oil, salt and pepper. You also sprinkle on taco seasoning, chipotle pepper with a little salt mixture, creole seasonings or even dry barbecue seasoning.

They have a crispy outside with a tender inside. Tools Skillet or Deep Fat Fryer
Wired Rack

Sea Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
