Hazelnut Ale Brownies with Pumpkin

Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar has an almost caramel flavor with hints of hazelnut and it’s vegan! It’s not overly sweet, but I though the flavors would go great in a gooey chocolate brownie with bits of hazelnut of course! You may not know but I blog for Key Ingredient every Wednesday and this week the […]

One of the recipes I get asked for the most is a simple version of a pumpkin spice frozen coffee. It seems to have a cult following.

I brought these beans to a Festivus party this year and they were actually well received. I thought beans and kale might not go over so well on the meaty buffet. Luckily I was wrong.

Never worry about a canned pumpkin shortage again. Each fall pie pumpkins are sprinkled in with the larger Jack-o-lantern pumpkins. Pie pumpkins are smaller and many will even fit in a small slow cooker. Plus pie pumpkins are tastier, and meant to be used in cooking. Use in any recipe that calls for cooked or […]
