What’s a guy to do when he has a bunch of pumpkin pie filling and no desire to make dumplings anymore? No brainer. Go to the store, buy tart shells and start pouring in the rest of the filling! So that’s exactly what I did. Since I didn’t want to copy the last recipe exactly, I figured I’d spruce things up a bit with some pecans! (Which go very well with pumpkin I might add!)
Now this filling is a little bit different than your standard pumpkin pie, due to the fact that I started it out with cream cheese. What you end up with is a bit of a hybrid, pumpkin pie-cheescake thing going on which I enjoyed very much!
While I was creating the Roasted Garlic, Spinach & Bacon Rangoon, I also wanted to do some form of dessert finger food. Seeing as I still had half a pack of wonton wrappers left, and several cans of pumpkin filling in my cupboard, this was a no brainer! It’s a fun take on your traditional pumpkin pie, wrapped in wontons, fried into a crispy dumpling, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and dipped in some whipped cream! Probably don’t need to convince you to try these ones hey? Well if I do, just imagine a cross between pumpkin pie and a churro! YUM!

With fall upon us, out come the sweaters, colorful leaves, and MASSIVE amounts of Autumn inspired food appearing in the blogosphere! Not wanting to leave our blog out of all the action, I present to you Halloween Pumpkin Pasta! As I was actually shopping for some new fall clothes (think thick plaid button-up shirts, and comfy sweaters) when I came across this awesome looking pasta. With our other ventures into striped pasta garnering an impressive number of hits, I knew this had to be blogged! Of course, I wanted to make something in the spirit of the season, so instead of a typical pasta sauce, I gave a pumpkin based sauce a go!

I’ve been on a big pulse kick lately and trying to find unique and creative ways to add these super foods into my diet. Also, I feel very guilty for living in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan which produces 99% of Canada’s lentil and chickpea crops and 67% of Canada’s dry pea crop, yet I don’t really know how to re-hyrdrate them, cook or bake with them. So this is a continuation of my adventures! These little lentil bars taste freaking awesome and are packed full of goodness making them great for a grab-n-go breakfast, fuel/recovery snack for athletes or just a healthy, gluten-free snack. In true BS fashion, let’s get to the recipe… Continue reading

After all of your pumpkin carving, save the seeds! Clean them, let them dry completely then gently toss them in EVOO, juice of half a lime, lots of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper and roast in a 400°F oven for 20-30 minutes. Be sure to toss about every 5 minutes while roasting them. Cool off & enjoy!
P.S. Why the phone photo & quick fire recipe? These were too tasty to set up the whole photo taking assembly!

Here is my second contribution to the mass of pumpkin recipes accumulating on the internet over the month of October. Unfortunately I am a cheater and just used a recipe from another food blog Cate’s World Kitchen. I am not a huge pancake fan, but I had leftover pumpkin puree from the parfaits and was not going to waste it, so into the pancakes it went! I took this recipe and doubled it:
