It’s Fall! Horray. My birthday and lots and lots of pumpkin. I went into Trader Joe’s a few days ago and they have dozens of pumpkin food items, even dog treats!

There are a gazillion pumpkin cake recipes out there but I recommend you try this one. You can top it with your choice of Vegan Whipped Cream, Powdered Sugar, Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting, or all by itself.

I used half-sized bundt pans and if you don’t have them you can use 2 loaf pans or a 9 x 13″ baking dish.

ENJOY!

Excellent and Quick Meatless Monday Option for dinner tonight!

I am not quite sure what makes me crave caramel this time of year. Perhaps it is because fall was always caramel apple season when I was growing up.

In addition to making a lot of pumpkin recipes leading up to Thanksgiving, I also find myself experimenting with caramelizing.

If you are not a fan of eggplant, you can always substitute zucchini or broccoli rabe.

ENJOY!

OK, please don’t laugh out loud when I tell you I was in the mood for chili when the Southern California temps dipped into the low 60’s!  Since I was born and raised in upstate New York you think I would be used to below zero temperatures and mounds of snow. Needless to say, I prefer palms to pines and sand to snow.

My husband cannot handle spices very well so this recipe is a mild version of chili but if you like a bit more heat, increase the chili powder from 1 tsp. to 1 Tbl. Also, this calls for 2 cups of water to make the chili more soup-like but if you prefer it super thick, decrease it to 1 cup.

ENJOY!
