Oh Autumn, It really is the best season! Finally its cold enough and the bees have run away, now I can spend more time outside playing fetch with our 9 month old/100 pound puppy. This Fall I have spent most of my time either outside enjoying the cool weather, or in the kitchen cooking up a storm.... and making a hurricane of dishes to go alone with it. This year I really wanted to focus on seasonal cooking, with the release of my first cookbook on the way spending quality time with the kitchen has been essential, and somewhat relaxing!
Lets get back to the point... Pumpkin butter, its delicious! you can use it for so many different things like Autumn spice parfaits, Ice-cream topper, a sweet addition to some Oatmeal and soooooo much more! Its simple to put together and makes a great addition to some of your favourite Fall inspired recipes!
