Spicy Apple Butter

My husband just loves Apple Butter, every year when we pick up the apples from the farmers market, the first thing he say's is when are you making the Apple Butter? We recently made our Apple Butter for the season and will give some of it as holiday gifts. This Apple Butter is very spicy with a little kick that we just love and yet it still has the familiar flavors of the old fashioned Apple Butter. It is best with butter and hot biscuits, but we have it with everything.

Chicken Enchilada Soup

I was talking to an old friend the other and she said, do you still have that Chicken Enchilada Soup recipe that you used to make for our fellowship group? I told her I hadn't made it in a long time but after I found the recipe and remembered how good it was, guess what I made a big pot of the soup. This Chicken Enchilada Soup is full of flavor and very easy to put together. It is a great recipe for any event or a family dinner. I sent my friend the recipe and thought that my readers might enjoy the recipe as much as we have through the years.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 10-24-14

Carving the pumpkins, getting the trick or treat bags ready for all the little callers that we will have this week, the cottage is all a buzz. We had a very successful garage sale last weekend and this week we have put the final touches on our fall cleaning. One of the things I do in the fall is get my pantry ready for the holiday baking season and make sure that I have lots of staples on hand for the bad weather days. Have you been getting ready for the little visitors that will be coming around at the end of the week? Give me some ideas as to what you will be doing for the cute little monsters.

Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas with Pumpkin Sauce

The pumpkins have been so pretty this fall and delicious, maybe because we have had cooler weather, the meat of the pumpkin has been very sweet. I developed two new recipes for roasted pumpkin this fall Roasted Southwest Pumpkin Stew and these fabulous Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas. These Roasted Pumpkin Enchiladas are just full of flavor with a wonderful Pumpkin Sauce to finish them. When I was making them my thought was that maybe we would have some left and freeze some for latter, well that didn't happen, we only had enough left for one lunch the next day, we loved these enchiladas and sure hope you do to!
