Pumpkin Pie Turnovers

I told you I would have a pumpkin-related recipe!

I really am fond of pumpkin pie (though it was something I never liked when I was younger), and any pumpkin related things, like cookies, loaves, muffins, you name it. Unfortunately, the rest of my family isn’t a big fan of pumpkin, and so we had to forgo the pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving this year. Instead, I made pecan pie (at the behest of my sister), which turned out a little too sweet than I wanted it to be, but still really good!

Because I still wanted something pumpkin pie related, I decided I would try making small turnovers, going off of the hand pies that I had been making.

Butternut Squash Pasta

Butternut squash is probably my favourite type of squash around. It’s just the right amount of sweetness and is so versatile, you can use it in anything from pasta to sauces to soups, and it can even be a pumpkin replacement in desserts!

For Canadian Thanksgiving, I made a roasted maple butternut squash, with cinnamon, maple syrup, and chilli powder. What a delicious and healthy side. Butternut squash is full of beta carotene, fibre, and vitamin C along with other minerals. It really is the perfect squash to eat in this season! Continue reading Butternut Squash Pasta

Apple & Sage Hand Pies

I find that the fall season is perfect for three kinds of pies: apple, pumpkin, and pecan. I know pumpkin pie is typically eaten on Thanksgiving (and I did have it this past weekend), but you can eat a good apple pie at any time of the year. I know I haven’t featured any pumpkin-related recipes yet, but I assure you I will, and there’s still two more months of fall — not to mention, the Americans haven’t had their Thanksgiving yet 🙂 Continue reading Apple & Sage Hand Pies

Stuffed Acorn Squash

Well, autumn in full swing, rain and all (still in denial…). I still love autumn as a season, but only when it isn’t raining…but it’s Vancouver, the city of rain. You think being born and raised here, you’d be used to it. And I am, but still.

One of the good things about autumn? It’s the season for winter squashes, pecans, and apples! That means acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkin. And lots of cinnamon.
