Pumpkin Hummus / #PUMPKINWEEK

I am starting to get some ideas together for special food and drinks I would like to serve during the holidays. Every year I like to serve something different than the year before. The only exception is that I also make whatever was the favorite from the year. This holiday season I will definitely be serving this Pumpkin Hummus. It is the perfect appetizer! The flavors are amazing together and this appetizer is not difficult to make at all. It has a pretty, festive color, and I served it with baked tortilla chips for something different!


Pumpkin Hummus
(printable recipe at end of post)

1 3/4 cups dry Garbanzo Beans
15 ounces Pumpkin Puree  
5 ounces Lemon Juice
1/3  cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup Tahini Paste
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
Sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper
Salt  To Taste



Place the beans in a pot and cover with cold water, Let stand for 8 hours or overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse beans, and place back in pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Refrigerate beans and the liquid. Once beans and liquid are cold, drain the beans, but keep the liquid.
Place the beans in the blender and add 1/2 cup of reserved water. Blend until smooth.
Add the pumpkin puree, lemon juice, olive oil, tahini, garlic, cinnamon, pepper, and salt. Blend until smooth. You may need to add some more reserved water if needed.

Serve with crackers or tortilla chips!
Thank you for stopping by today!

Pumpkin Bread / #PUMPKINWEEK


It is #PUMPKINWEEK, and everyday this week I will have a different, yummy recipe featuring pumpkin! I am starting off  with a recipe for homemade Pumpkin Bread! I look forward to baking this bread every fall, and giving some away to friends. I wish I could send everyone a loaf of this pumpkin bread, but because I can't, I am sharing it with you today. This recipe has been in my family for a good many years, and I must say, I never get tired of it. I hope you like it!

Homemade Pumpkin Bread
(printable recipe at end of post)

3 1/2 cups Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 cup Corn Syrup
4 Eggs
2/3 cup Water
2 cups Pumpkin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and brown sugar in a bowl. Make a hole in the center. Add the corn syrup, eggs, water and pumpkin to the bowl. Mix together. 
Pour into loaf pan of your choice, about 1/2 way up the pan. If using a metal loaf pan, you will need to lightly grease the pan. It is not necessary with most disposable pans.I like these disposable ones when I am giving the bread to friends. I like that they don't have to worry about returning the pan to me.  Place in oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes or more, depending on the size of your pan.
Once baked, remove from oven and cool completely. Enjoy as is, or spread a slice with whipped cream cheese.
Decorate, give to a friend and enjoy one yourself.
