Just a short post about a few things I've made lately!
There's so much pumpkin at the Farmers' Market...what better to make than Pumpkin Butter?!?! Nothing, that's what I say! Local pumpkin...hooray!
I based the recipe on my recipe for Sweet Potato Butter from last fall, but with a little different spice blend. I used 1 Tbs cinnamon and 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice for the seasonings, and simmered it with an extra cinnamon stick. It's so fantastic! Great on toast, muffins, waffles or whatever needs a little touch of fall lovin! Yum!
I also made a tester sauce for Terry Hope Romero's upcoming Vegan Latina cookbook: Fresh Gazpacho Salsa Dressing! It's just what it sounds like...a combo of gazpacho, salsa, and dressing all in one! I made it a few weeks back when I still had fresh, local tomatoes and bell peppers, so it was perfect for showcasing the last of the summer goods. In fact, all the veggies in this were local! Woo! This went great with tacos, chips, salads, and arepas, too! Cuz a good sauce can really go with just about anything!
