Let’s Talk Apples!

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Kitchen Talk (Apples)

Apple desserts are reserved for autumn, when the leaves turn golden and rustle beneath your feet, and mornings are crisp, inviting you to linger in bed just a little bit longer. Maybe because fall means it’s apple picking season around these parts, and with access to bushels upon bushels of local apples, the oven gets a workout churning out all kinds of apple creations.

I know many of us would go the extra mile if it meant creating something truly special in the kitchen, and I thought it might be fun to share our stories of just how far we’ve gone to do just that—our adventures in the search for that elusive ingredient or even tool to make a recipe work. So tell us:

Do you have any stories about your adventures tracking down an item for a recipe?

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Kitchen Talk (Pumpkin Recipes)

As much as I’d like summer to linger, I’m also quite excited about what looms in the immediate horizon: pumpkin season. Yes friends, its arrival is imminent. And I know I’m not the only one excited about pumpkin recipes here. What’s not to love? It’s nutritious, much of it is edible (flesh, seeds, leaves, flowers), it freezes well, makes baked good moist, and in a pinch, it can turn into a carriage if you need a ride to the ball. Yes, pumpkins are real versatile like that.

We want to hear all the ways you like to use this wonder fruit, so tell us:

What are your favorite ways to use or serve pumpkin?

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Kitchen Talk (Breakfast Ideas)

The first day of school is just around the corner, and some have already started (sorry!). Back in my school days, that meant my mornings were spent trying to linger in bed for as long as I could get away with, milking it for every last minute of sleep possible. Which, in turn, often meant rushing out the door without so much of a hint of breakfast. Not a crumb or even drop of milk in sight. It’s a wonder I made it through third grade. So let’s talk about breakfast! We need quick and easy, or make-ahead ideas, for all the sleepyheads like me.
