Fresh cranberry sauce is so easy to make that you never need to buy canned. Never! I like to make this alongside a Tofurky and gravy for a really easy dinner (if you start the cranberries right as you put in the Tofurky, they will be cooled and ready to serve when it is out of the oven).
This squash is so decadently buttery and sweet that it is difficult to believe that it is not dessert. We owe our sweet neighbor our gratitude for supplying us fresh, organic acorn squash lovingly plucked from her garden. She has ignited a squash passion in our house and this dish has become a nightly delight.
Our first taste of these sweet chewy delights came on top of a rich, creamy Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake. Word of warning: although the recipe yields a stunning 2 cups, you will have a difficult time keeping these around as long as the cheesecake; they are wickedly delicious snacks that will sing your name invitingly...
We're big fans of pumpkin here. Each year, we roast up a big pumpkin, make our own puree, and spend the rest of fall delighting in tasty pumpkin delights. This rich and creamy cheesecake is now at the top of our pumpkin recipe list.
This is how to make home made pumpkin puree for recipes such as pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, and so on. I usually take a large pumpkin and freeze the purée in 2 cup baggies. This is also an amazing baby food!
