It’s National Pumpkin Pie Day! I love pumpkin pie. Nothing is better for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving than a cold slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. Here’s the video I prepared in my series of Thanksgiving Whole-Food, Real-Food videos, about how I make pumpkin pie from fresh pumpkin. The recipe follows:
Calla’s Chicken Florentine
In COURTING CALLA, Calla is a trained chef, but working with an extremely limited budget. She makes chicken Florentine for Ian for their first date. This recipe will impress anyone without breaking the bank. It’s delicious, hearty, and beautiful on the plate.
Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper Soup
This is one of those heavenly soups that everyone just pauses as they take the first bite. It is so rich, so comforting, and so wonderful to eat.
Coq au Vin
Coq au Vin is a red wine-braised chicken-and-vegetable stew that has amazing flavor combinations. Serve with herbed mashed potatoes and green beans for the perfect comfort meal.
Scrumptious Cinnamon Swirl Bread
I LOVE cinnamon mixed with almost anything bready. I confess it is a weakness of mine. This bread is wonderful – and I am so very pleased that it relies upon honey to sweeten instead of sugar. This bread makes amazing Family Favorite French Toast, or if you can’t wait for a breakfast morning, you can just dive right into it and eat it fresh and warm from the oven, plain or maybe with a pat of softened butter.
